Another Giveaway!

I'm pleased to announce another giveaway! 1 winner, 2 books.

I've read Choices (review will be up soon) and I intend on reading Monsoon Summer.

Choices by Katrina L. Burchett

Five teenage girls make decisions about boyfriends and premarital sex.... Shauntice Johnston lives in a world of domestic abuse. Her dad beats her mom, so she doesn't trust guys. Angel Nichols feels neglected by her workaholic mother and she has no idea who her father is; she started having sex for the attention. LaKeeta Wilson is pregnant and she got that way on purpose. Bridgette Anderson feels very strongly about abstinence and nobody is going to change her mind. Hope Patterson lives a sheltered life because of her mother's strict rules. Rebellion puts her in a dangerous situation.

Choices is the first in a trilogy.

-I liked Choices and it's a good book, especially for teens.

Monsoon Summer by Mitali Perkins

Jasmine “Jazz” Gardner heads off to India during the monsoon season. The family trip is her mother’s doing: Mrs. Gardner wants to volunteer at the orphanage that cared for her when she was young. But going to India isn’t Jazz’s idea of a great summer vacation. She wants no part of her mother’s do-gooder endeavors.

What’s more, Jazz is heartsick. She’s leaving the business she and her best friend, Steve Morales, started—as well as Steve himself. Jazz is crazy in love with the guy. If only he knew!

Only when Jazz reluctantly befriends Danita, a girl who cooks for her family, and who faces a tough dilemma, does Jazz begin to see how she can make a difference—to her own family, to Danita, to the children at the orphanage, even to Steve. As India claims Jazz, the monsoon works its madness and its magic

-It sounds great and I can't wait to read it!

  1. I guess the Mitali Perkins book sounds more interesting to me because I have read so much about her from her being featured by Color Online.

  3. Yeah I want to read Mitali's book too. I've never been in that country and would love to learn about their customs. Also your description makes me curious as to what she learned there.

  4. I'd be interested in reading Monsoon Summer because I don't know much about India at all and would like to learn more.

  6. I commented on God Box...and would like to read Monsoon Summer b/c I haven't tried anything by Mitali but admire her blog posts and efforts to promote diversity...

  7. Monsoon Summer sounds more interesting to me than Choices because in Choices the main focus seems to be sex and subject of sex is involved and discussed in so many books, that a book so closely focused on the sex doesn’t appeal to me as much as Monsoon Summer. That’s not to say that Choices doesn’t sound like a good read, I just simply like the sound Monsoon Summer better.
