Giveaway: Home for the Holidays (Mother-Daughter Book Club), Betsy-Tacy Books & More!

By Cynthia Leitich Smith
for Cynsations

Grand Prize! Enter for a chance to win

Two additional winners will also receive a signed copies of Home for the Holidays!

From the promotional copy for Home for the Holidays:

This holiday season, join the mother-daughter book club as they turn the page to a whole new chapter of adventures!

Unfortunately, nothing goes quite as planned for any of the girls. 

On a Christmas cruise with their families, Megan and Becca fight over the dashing son of the ship's captain. Cassidy and her family fly back to California to visit Cassidy's sister Courtney and stay with old friends in Laguna Beach during Hanukkah. Meanwhile, they’re wrestling with a big question: which state should they call home? 

And back in Concord, a disastrous sledding accident means both Emma and Jess have to completely change their winter vacation plans.

Between squabbles, injuries, and blizzards, everything seems to be going wrong. Will the girls be able to find their holiday spirit in time for a rollicking New Year’s Eve party?

Note: in this story, the club is reading the Betsy-Tacy books!

I've loved the Betsy-Tacy series for years and years and now have found a new series to enjoy just as much - Heather Vogel Frederick's Mother-Daughter Book Club. I highly recommend both series to everyone ages 5 to infinity.

This is such an amazing opportunity! I homeschool my 12 year old daughter and although she reads on a high school level, I have SUCH a difficult time finding well-written books with age-appropriate topics. I am thrilled to have discovered the Mother-Daughter books this evening and just ordered Book #1 for my daughter. The Betsy-Tacy books are on our list of books to read as well. My daughter would be beside herself if she were to receive this giveaway! Thank you so much for the chance!

I loved Home for the Holidays - it really inspired me to pick up the relevant Betsy-Tacy high school books again and enjoy them anew. It would be wonderful to have my very own copy of HFTH and to pass the Treasury on to my daughter for her very own.

I would love to read the "Betsy Tacy" books! I had never heard of the series before I read "Home for the Holidays".
Unfortunately, I can't get them at my local libraries as they do not have the books. Next time I visit I think I am going to put in a request though.

I'm not familiar with either of these series of books, so reading about them from your posts interests me. The Mother Daughter Book Club sounds especially good.
I have a new blog called Grammie Bee's Book Buzz for small children to tweens, so this would probably be good to review for that tween age group. Thanks for the review and notes on them.

My daughter would be thrilled, as she has been eyeing the Home for the Holidays book and a very kind author sent her complimentary copies of some other Betsy Tacy books last year!

She reviewed 'The Mother-Daughter Book Club' on our web site a few months back: http://2girlslostinabook.wordpress.com/2011/07/30/litkid-review-the-mother-daughter-book-club-book-1/
