Giveaway: Girls in Trucks

I am so happy to be hosting a giveaway. Obviously this is my first one so I am a little nervous about it and am not 100% sure I'm doing it right, but I'm sure in the end whomever wins will get their book :D

So on that note, I have 5 copies of Girls in Trucks by Katie Crouch available.

I haven't had the opportunity of reading it yet, but I plan on having a review of it up soon. Here is a quick synopsis:

Sarah Walters is a less-than-perfect debutante. She tries hard to follow the time-honored customs of the Charleston Camellia Society, as her mother and grandmother did, standing up straight in cotillion class and attending lectures about all the things that Camellias don't do. (Like ride with boys in pickup trucks.) But Sarah can't quite ignore the barbarism just beneath all that propriety, and as soon as she can she decamps South Carolina for a life in New York City. There, she and her fellow displaced Southern friends try to make sense of city sophistication, to understand how much of their training applies to real life, and how much to the strange and rarefied world they've left behind. When life's complications become overwhelming, Sarah returns home to confront with matured eyes the motto "Once a Camellia, always a Camellia"- and to see how much fuller life can be, for good and for ill, among those who know you best. Girls in Trucks introduces an irresistable, sweet, and wise voice that heralds the arrival of an exciting new talent.

Leave a comment for one entry. And if you subscribe to this blog or already are subscribed leave me a note and I'll give you a second entry.

Rules: Books will be delivered directly from Publisher so contestants can only be from US or Canada and no P.O. Boxes please. Winners will be drawn April 17.
