Twenty Boy Summer Giveaway


*The giveaway has ended. Thanks for your best summer stories! You will receive an email if you are one of the winners.*

Today I am happy to announce another giveaway. This time, 5 winners will each receive a hardcover copy of Sarah Ockler’s debut, Twenty Boy Summer. This one is high on my TBR list. Here’s a teaser:

“Don’t worry, Anna. I’ll tell her, okay? Just let me think about the best way to do it.”
“Promise me? Promise you won’t say anything?”
“Don’t worry.” I laughed. “It’s our secret, right?”

According to her best friend Frankie, twenty days in Zanzibar Bay is the perfect opportunity to have a summer fling, and if they meet one boy every day, there’s a pretty good chance Anna will find her first summer romance. Anna lightheartedly agrees to the game, but there’s something she hasn’t told Frankie—she’s already had that kind of romance, and it was with Frankie’s older brother, Matt, just before his tragic death one year ago.

Beautifully written and emotionally honest, this is a debut novel that explores what it truly means to love someone and what it means to grieve, and ultimately, how to make the most of every single moment this world has to offer.

Here is a video of Sarah chatting about her book:

So, to enter, all you need to do is leave a comment below, sharing one of your best summer memories ever. The contest will run until June 30ish.
