Five free copies of Shine by Lauren Myracle are up for grabs! You don't want to miss this important book. Reviewers and bloggers are going crazy for this one, including me! I think book clubs around the country will be clamoring to read this book together. Shine is a triumphant novel! Teens, teachers, and parents will be talking about this one, and maybe it will brew some serious controversy.

High school appropriate; I would not recommend this book for under grade 9. Violence, drug abuse, language, brutality, sexuality.

    We're facing extreme budget cuts; 17 teachers cut from the HS alone and the rest of the staff facing a 10% pay cut between lost days and wage cuts. We simply don't have the wherewithal to support our collections.

  6. Absolutely would love to read it and review it on my blog!

  7. I would love to add this to my collection, her other books are popular here. I am sure the kids would love it. It was great to meet you at TLA, funny I had to go all the way to Austin to meet you.

  16. We are a rural community and have finally started to make more obvious efforts to combat bullying, including any gay bashing/ bullying/ harassment. This novel would be very relevant to my students. Please throw us in the running for this book giveaway.
