So I thought to myself, what better to do on a Thursday than hold a giveaway? Right? Yeah, I thought so, too!
Today I'm giving away a signed ARC of a really great YA dystopian that is scheduled to release on Tuesday, so maybe you'll be lucky enough to win a copy! And what, you ask, is this elusive ARC? Why, it's none other than...
By Ilsa J. Bick
pub date Tuesday!!
product description from goodreads.com
It could happen tomorrow...
A cataclysmic event. An army of "The Changed."
Can one teen really survive on her own?
An electromagnetic pulse sweeps through the sky, destroying every electronic device and killing billions. For those spared, it's a question of who can be trusted and who is no longer human...
Desperate to find out what happened and to avoid the Changed, Alex meets up with Tom---a young army veteran---and Ellie, a young girl whose grandfather was killed by the electromagnetic pulse.
This improvised family will have to use every ounce of courage they have just to survive.
I absolutely loved this book! Such amazing writing and a really cool premise that I urge you all to read (my review of Ashes is here, in case you wanna read it). And what better time to read it than when you can read it for FREE!
I was fortunate enough to be able to attend the ALA Convention in New Orleans this year (you know, since N'awlins is a mere 3 hours from home. Yeah, I know you're jealous) and got to meet Ilsa and pick up a signed copy of Ashes (I actually got 2 copies...hence the giveaway. Also, I use the term "meet" loosely, since I did nothing more than smile and snag the book and walk away because I was too nervous to speak to her!). So you, dear blogging buds, get to reap the benefits of my labor (and yes, walking around the extremely long convention hall all day was labor!)...in the form of a signed copy of Ashes!
To enter? Super-simple, as always. Simply comment on this post and tell me a great YA dystopian you've read (but please avoid The Hunger Games, Delirium and Divergent. I've read those and they're awesome!) and you're entered! And unfortunately, this is US only (since I'm covering shipping costs and it can get pricey out of the country!)...sorry my international peeps!
Be sure to comment on this post by Sunday at 12:00 noon CST, and I will announce the winner on Monday. I don't do the whole extra points thing, but feel free to Tweet or spread the word! And even though you don't have to be a follower, it's greatly appreciated!
So, comment away and tell me all those awesome YA dystopians that I just have to read!!
