A GREAT and TERRIBLE contest!


Two lucky winners will receive a paperback copy of
A Great and Terrible Beauty by Libba Bray
in celebration of Libba Bray's new book, GOING BOVINE!

(because you should read both, you see.)

Synopsis:


Gemma Doyle isn't like other girls. Girls with impeccable manners, who speak when spoken to, who remember their station, and who will lie back and think of England when it's required of them.

No, sixteen-year-old Gemma is an island unto herself, sent to the Spence Academy in London after tragedy strikes her family in India. Lonely, guilt-ridden, and prone to visions of the future that have an uncomfortable habit of coming true, Gemma finds a chilly reception. But she's not completely alone...she's been followed by a mysterious young man, who warns her to close her mind against the visions.

For it's at Spence that Femma's power to attract the supernatural unfolds; there she becomes entangled with the school's most powerful girls and discovers her mother's connection to a shadowy group called the Order. It's there that her destiny waits...if only she can believe in it.

On September 22nd, GOING BOVINE by Libba Bray will be available in stores. You can find more info about the book here (click on the cow!) and more info about Libba here.
