Book Review and Give away.

I have never been much of a reader. Since discovering Dyslexia is hereditary and comes in all shapes and sizes, I have wondered if my lack of comprehension or inability to focus on a book, has had something to do with this.
Last year I won a kindle and since then, I have been ploughing through many fun reads. Mostly short, chick lit. Nothing I would recommend ;-)except to a few special friends who enjoy the same junk as me but I was recently inspired, to pick up an actual paper book and was very pleasantly affected by it's content.
I would like to share with you a book that was written by a neighbor of mine. I am sharing, not because she is my neighbor or because she asked me, she didn't but because I really enjoyed the book. I read it in a day which is an absolute first, possibly last, for me and was very impressed with the way Stephanie was able to capture the very easily sidetracked, mind of mine.

I thought at first, this book might suit the teen to young adult reader but once finished I realized I learned a lot about myself and how I might view people in certain situations.
In brief, it is the story of a senior in high school, with a great future ahead of her. She makes a mistake which unfortunately can't be hidden away and repented of in secret. The author shares the emotions and reactions of those around her including the other party involved. The book left me wanting to read on but since this was based on the authors own experience, I kind of know how it turned out.
Anyway, I loved the book. I encourage you to watch the you tube trailer.

The author, Stephanie Worlton, is a fantastic woman with a great family.She does tons for the scouting community and can work a power tool like no other. I admire her and appreciate her sharing her story. I hope she writes more, she really is a great writer.

Anyway go to the link to check it out.

The author is giving away a signed copy and I would like to add mine to that prize. leave me a comment and I'll randomly pick someone to send it out to.
I will close the contest Nov 16th 2011.
