The prize.... what else, a BOOK! As this is my first contest I am only going to be giving away one book, my copy of Girl Goddess #9, a collection of 9 short stories about girls by Francesca Lia Block published by HarperCollins Publishers.
Here is a synopsis from the jacket of the book:
Welcome to GIRL GODDESS #9, a collection of nine stories about girls by the author of WEETZIE BAT. Here in these pages are girl goddesses of every age and shape and size, wearing combat boots and spiky hair or dressed all in white. One girl has two moms, another has no mother at all but a strange blue-skinned elf that lives in her closet. One is a rock-star groupie, another loves dancing and reading poetry and having picnics in the backyard when the moon is full. Best best girlfriends, lovers gay and straight. Baby goddesses, singing goddesses, dancing goddesses, writing goddesses- all discovering that the world is not a simple place and that there is more than one way to live.
I loved this book and found it a fun read, perfect to get your mind off of your own life and onto someone else's, or in this case a few different peoples'. Just to sit back and enjoy the last bits of nice weather before winter hits.
