OMG! Oh. My. Gods.

Look what I won:

Not the Greek god, or the pink running shoes (although I’m digging the pink running shoes), but the YA novel by Tera Lynn Childs.

And double-plus cool? It was Tera’s congratulatory email that alerted me to the fact the The Geek Girl’s Guide to Cheerleading sale had been posted to Publishers Marketplace.

Andrew is thinking he’d like to read this one, too. He was highly amused by the strategic placing of the banner and shoes (but then, so was I).

Since there’s so much good karma going around, and since Tera is sending me my very own copy, and since I’d planned to buy a copy anyway, I’m going to give one away.

Want a copy? Then leave a comment below. You have until the wee hours of the morning on Sunday. Mother’s Day, say around 0700 hours CDT (that’s seven a.m. here in MN), I’ll draw a name from the comments on this post. Want a taste of what you could win? Read on:

Oh. My. Gods.

If Phoebe Castro can keep her grades up and have another stellar cross-country season, her dream of attending USC with her best friends is only a track scholarship away. She’s made all her plans, so it’s a complete shock when her mom announces she’s marrying a mysterious stranger and moving them half-way around the world-to Greece.

Phoebe’s stuck on a secret island in the Aegean attending the super-exclusive Academy, where her new stepfather is the headmaster and the kids are anything but your average students-they are descendants of the Greek gods, super powers included. That’s right, Greek gods are no myth! If Phoebe thought high school was hard, she knows this is going to be mortal misery.

Securing that scholarship seems like Phoebe’s only ticket out of Greece, but training and maintaining her grades will be grueling, even without a sabotaging stepsister from Hades and a gorgeous guy-what a god!-who just might be her Achilles heel. One thing is for sure-summoning the will to win and find her place among the gods could be Phoebe’s toughest course yet.

The Greek gods get a makeover in this romantic odyssey of mythic proportion.

  1. You know I’d leave a comment anyway, but I want this book. You know it’s right up my alley! YAY for your win and for the notice and for… for… everything!!!

    And you might want to read it first, before Andrew gets his mitts on it, lol.

  2. OMG… this sounds like a HOOT. And, hey, you’re always telling me to read more YA, and every YA I’ve read that you’ve recommended has been stellar, so how could this be anything but?

    Absotutely add my name to the hat.

    M~

  3. You probably remember I used to teach writing at the university–but what you wouldn’t know, is that what I wanted for my main study, was mythology! You could easily say, this book is right up my alley. It sounds like such fun–modern gods and goddesses in school, oh my.

    Congrats on your win, and what a great way to add blessings to your life, by passing it on to some other fortunate soul.

    Congratulations to you! Isn’t it wonderful when you win something you actually WANT?

    I am drooling over this book. I cannot wait until I can make another Amazon order!

    Very Cool! Congratulations! It’s wonderful that you are celebrating your good cheer by sharing with others. If I win, I know I would enjoy the book and then I can pass it on to my friend Chaley who also enjoys YA and children’s literature. Have a great weekend and awsome Mother’s Day.
    p.s. I love how you said, “double-plus cool.” I say “double-plus good” all the time. Drives poor Sean up the wall.

  6. Oh. My. Gods. I. Want. One. WoW!
