Let's talk about winning SPEAK! (Contest with 20 copies)

Major giveaway time! Be sure to read the rest of our SPEAK feature to celebrate Laurie Halse Anderson. This is Part 4.

Here's the handy table of contents so you can follow along in order:

Part 1: Steph and Lenore speak up about Speak (at Reviewer X)
Part 2: Steph and Lenore speak up about Speak (continued) (at Presenting Lenore)
Part 3: Authors speak up about Speak (at Presenting Lenore)
Part 4: Win one of 20 copies of Speak (on both blogs)
One more part coming!



Can’t speak up about SPEAK because you don’t have a copy yet? Well, we want to remedy that situation. Steph and I have 20 copies to give away. All you have to do is win one of them is comment on this post. For a second entry, comment on the giveaway post over at Steph’s. And to double your entries (for a total of four) comment on both AND post a link to this giveaway (either to the one here or at Steph's) on your blog (sidebar is fine) AND let us know that you did so. This contest will stay open until 9 pm CST March 12th and is open to US and Canadian residents only.

I'm sad to say I had never heard of the book before you and Steph decided to discuss it. I'm definitely going to end up reading it, but I'd love a chance to win it (=

I'd love a copy of Speak because as someone who professes to be a young adult literature critic, I think it's pretty sad that I haven't read this book. It's a pretty seminal YA lit read, and I need it in my library!
