Laura Wiess Signing + Giveaway

Yay! Another giveaway! I went to my local Barnes and Noble during the week and saw a sign that Laura Wiess was going to be signing and almost had a heart attack. No one ever signs around my area that I'm interested in. I liked Such a Pretty Girl and am very excited to read Ordinary Beauty and I love the cover. I made sure that I took advantage of this opportunity and got an extra copy for one of you!

Since I used my own money to purchase the book, I would like to ask you to show your appreciation by following BAM Book Reviews! I won't limit the contest to just my followers, but if you follow our blog you'll get an extra entry for the giveaway! =)

Click here to enter! Giveaway deadline: 7/9

Laura Wiess and I! She was so sweet!

What you'll get if you win:

Ordinary Beauty by Laura Wiess *SIGNED*

MTV mini-notebook!


Ordinary Beauty:

How can you make someone love you when they won’t?

And what if that person happens to be your mother?

Sayre Bellavia grew up knowing she was a mistake: unplanned and unwanted. At five months shy of eighteen, she’s become an expert in loneliness, heartache, and neglect. Her whole life she’s been cursed, used, and left behind. Swallowed a thousand tears and ignored a thousand deliberate cruelties. Sayre’s stuck by her mother through hell, tried to help her, be near her, be important to her even as her mother slipped away into a violent haze of addiction, destroying the only chance Sayre ever had for a real family.

Now her mother is lying in a hospital bed, near death, ravaged by her own destructive behavior. And as Sayre fights her way to her mother’s bedside, she is terrified but determined to get the answer to a question no one should ever have to ask: Did my mother ever really love me? And what will Sayre do if the answer is yes?

This book sounds AMAZING and I bet it's just that. Good luck to all that enter! =)
