I’m pretty sure that’s an applicable Mean Girls quote for almost every situation in my life.
The winner of autographed copies The Ruby Oliver Series and Disreputable History of Frankie Landau-Banks is Melissa V.
YA Bibliophile is hosting Sarah Dessen Week. In honor of Sarah Dessen week I’m giving away these finished copy books to two winners:
1st Prize: Someone Like You, That Summer, This Lullaby and The Truth About Forever
2nd Prize: This Lullaby
Rules: This is a flash giveaway. Here’s the form. You know the drill. Also this is INTERNATIONAL and I will pick a winner tomorrow, THURSDAY evening. Exact end of the contest is at my discretion.
From the press release:
Twelve top children’s book illustrators created original artwork for Scholastic’s month-long online charity auction (which just opened for bids) to benefit Reading Is Fundamental and Reach Out and Read, two amazing literacy organizations that have lost all federal funding, making it even more difficult for them to help the kids who need it the most.
To view the spectacular original artwork by all 12 artists, simply go to www.scholastic.com/readeveryday. From there you can then pick a favorite, place a bid, and put books into the hands of the neediest kids – and they’ll have a piece of original art by a beloved children’s artist that illustrates the important role of books in all our lives.
Yeah, that’s right you can bid on a picture drawn by Marie GrandPre, the illustrator of Harry Potter AND help charity. Heck yeah!

Here are a few links to posts that really have made me think lately.
The Book Lantern on Crossing The Line: Differentiating Between Honest And Harsh –– I love those posts that debate this issue. And Vinaya brings up some excellent points.
My Friend Amy on Sticks And Stones: Abuse And Gossip Girl — an excellent post calling out Gossip Girl for showing an emotionally abusive relationship as healthy/desirable.
