Giveaway: Eighth Grade Is Making Me Sick by Jennifer L. Holm, illustrated by Elicia Castaldi

By Cynthia Leitich Smith
for Cynsations

Happy Halloween! Enter to win one of two signed copies of Eighth Grade Is Making Me Sick by Jennifer L. Holm, illustrated by Elicia Castaldi (Random House, 2012). From the promotional copy:

Ginny has big plans for eighth grade. She's going to try out for cheerleading, join Virtual Vampire Vixens, and maybe even fall in love. 

But middle school is more of a roller-coaster ride than Ginny could have ever predicted. 

Filled with Post-its, journal entries, grocery lists, hand-drawn comic strips, report cards, IMs, notes, and more, Eighth Grade Is Making Me Sick is the sometimes poignant, often hilarious, always relatable look at a year in the life of one girl, told entirely through her stuff.

Author sponsored. Eligibility: U.S.

I love Jennifer Holm's work so much!! Turtle in Paradise is one of my all-time favorite books--it makes me laugh-out-loud, and makes me cry. The ending was so incredibly poignant. I'm also a fan of the May Amelia books as well as Babymouse which is also hilarious.

Middle School was great too, so I'd love to win this one!

Thanks for the opportunity!
