So I was clearing up some space on my bookshelves and discovered that I had two copies of these! Guess that happens when you can't keep track. I need a better system. I've decided to giveaway these two great books by Sarah Dessen. They're paperback editions from Speak (Puffin Books) and haven't been read, as I have my slightly beat up and thoroughly read editions on my shelf. Pictured below are the actual items.
SOMEONE LIKE YOU (1998)
From Sarah Dessen's website:
"Halley and Scarlett have been best friends for years, sharing secrets, clothes, and crushes. People know Scarlett as the popular, flamboyant one; Halley’s just her quiet sidekick. Then, at the beginning of their junior year, the balance shifts. First, Scarlett’s boyfriend Michael is killed in a freak accident; soon afterward, she learns that she is carrying his baby. For the first time, Scarlett really needs Halley. Their friendship may bend under the weight, but it’ll never break–because a true friendship is a promise you keep forever. Sarah Dessen’s poignant, funny voice has earned her raves and legions of teenaged fans."
JUST LISTEN (2006)The winner will be contacted through e-mail within 48 hours after the close date and have 48 hours to respond if picked as winner.
"Last year, Annabel was "the girl who has everything"—at least that’s the part she played in the television commercial for Kopf’s Department Store.This year, she’s the girl who has nothing: no best friend because mean-but-exciting Sophie dropped her, no peace at home since her older sister became anorexic, and no one to sit with at lunch. Until she meets Owen Armstrong. Tall, dark, and music-obsessed, Owen is a reformed bad boy with a commitment to truth-telling.With Owen’s help,maybe Annabel can face what happened the night she and Sophie stopped being friends.
In this multi-layered, impossible-to-put-down book, Sarah Dessen tells the story of a year in the life of a family coming to terms with the imperfections beneath its perfect facade."
