TBS Contest!

Twenty Boy Summer by Sarah Ockler has been in bookstores as of June 1st!

Have you heard of this book? Here's the synopsis:
For Anna Reiley and Frankie Perino, the ingredients for the Absolute Best Summer Ever are simple: Two girls. Two bikinis. And twenty days in Zanzibar Bay, California. The best part? According to Frankie, if they meet one boy every day, there’s a good chance Anna will find her first summer romance.

Anna lightheartedly agrees to the fun, but there’s something she hasn’t told Frankie… she’s already had her romance, and it was with Frankie’s older brother, Matt, just before his tragic death last year.

TWENTY BOY SUMMER explores what it truly means to love someone, what it means to grieve, and ultimately, how to make the most of every beautiful moment life has to offer.

Sound good?
There will be lots of awesome contests for you to get a chance to win Twenty Boy Summer. Here's some info about one of them: (I copied this directly from Sarah Ockler's site)

Put Twenty Boy Summer on the Map!
Twenty Boy Summer has escaped from its boxes before the official June 1 release date and has already been spotted in the wild at a bookstore near Buffalo, NY. Now through June 30, we’re tracking sightings of TBS all over the country. If you spot the book in a bookstore or library, take a picture or video and enter to win a cool TBS Beach Prize Pack!

Guidelines:

1. Take a picture or video of Twenty Boy Summer on the shelves in the store, kiosk, or library

2. Email it with your first name, store/library name, and the city and state where it was taken to sarah (dot) ockler (at) gmail (dot) com with the subject “TBS Map Contest”

3. For an extra entry, take a picture or video of the book with YOU in it, holding it or pointing at it or singing to it or doing some other creative (but not illegal) thing

Pics and videos will be posted at SarahOckler.com along with a Google map showing all of the places Twenty Boy Summer has been spotted in the wild. The more times you find and document TBS in different storesand libraries, the more times you can enter!

The contest is open to U.S. residents only. Participants under age 13 must have a parent/guardian enter for them. We’ll randomly select a winning entry from all of the entries on July 1 and will notify the winner by email.

Good luck and happy book hunting!
