Oh, hi! I have several ARCs of Mind Games, just sitting in a stack on top of my other stacks of books. I was agonizing over what to do with them, what sort of contest to hold, when I came across a tweet from a teacher who personally stocks books in her classroom. She loans them to her students, who read them, then share them and fight over them and talk about them, creating an environment where reading is a social activity.
So. Much. Awesome.
I love that teachers have personal libraries they let their students borrow from. I also love that librarians have...well, actual libraries that they care for and stock for students. My high school had one seriously sucky library, and for an avid reader thirty minutes from the nearest library, that was disappointing.
In the end, I decided I wanted to put five ARCs into the hands of people who put them into the hands of teenagers. So! If you are a US-based teacher of middle school or high school and have a classroom lending library, or if you are a librarian in a middle school or high school, this contest is for YOU!
(Seriously. Those are the only people who can enter. Sorry.)
*Please note that Mind Games contains more serious content than the Paranormalcy series. It's darker and skews a bit older [some underage drinking, violence, references to sex but no actual sexual content]. If your students have read Hunger Games, then I'd have no problem giving it to them as it's definitely not as intense. If they aren't ready for that maturity-wise, I'd hold off for a year or two.
To enter, simply fill out the form below. Your information is private, and in a week (January 10th) I'll announce five winners! Good luck!
If you do not qualify to enter this contest, never fear: February brings the release of Mind Games and also a Very Big Preorder Contest. Huzzah!
