childrens book week hop 2013

Giveaway is a paperback edition of Awkward by Marni Bates

Title: Awkward by Marni Bates


Mackenzie Wellesley has spent her life avoiding the spotlight. At Smith High, she's the awkward junior people only notice when they need help with homework. Until she sends a burly football player flying with her massive backpack and makes a disastrous - not to mention unwelcome - attempt at CPR. Before the day is out, the whole fiasco explodes on YouTube. And then the strangest thing happens. Suddenly, Mackenzie is an Internet sensation, with four million hits and counting. Sucked into a whirlwind of rock stars, paparazzi, and free designer clothes, she even catches the eye of the most popular guy at school. And that's when life gets really interesting..

  1. When I was little my very favorite book was 'Ramona Quimby' by Beverly Cleary. I became so obsessed that I named one of my goldfish, Willa Jean after one of the characters. My brother, who was quite a bit older than me (7 years) liked that name, too. He was very artsy and so he painted a barbie doll with all sorts of different colors for an art project. As a joke, he named the barbie doll, Willa Jean. For some reason he thought it would be a good idea to take it with him to music camp that summer. When his cabin mates got wind of the fact that he had a deformed, painted barbie doll sitting on his bed, his name forevermore was Willa Jean. All this because I liked the book 'Ramona Quimby' as a child.
    Thanks for the giveaway!
