How I Spent My Summer... and a Sweepstakes!

Penguin Teen

Hi kids!

I've been MIA from the blog, I know, but the light at the end of the National Book Awards Reading Tunnel is in sight!  I'll be back in the next week or so with a new post.

In the meantime, I'm happy to announce ORLEANS is part of Penguin Teen's End of Summer Sweepstakes!  Enter, and you can win a stack of books.  Come on, hold on to that last bit of summer before the textbooks take over!

No purchase necessary. US only, age 13 or older. Official rules: How to Enter: 1. Follow Penguin Teen on Pinterest 2. Create a board titled "Penguin Teen End of Summer Sweepstakes" 3. Pin at least 1 summer vacation inspired pin to your End of Summer board 4. Use #SummerReads and #PenguinTeen in the description of each pin 5. Post the link to your board in the comments section of this pin 6. One winner will receive the pictured books.
As part of the sweepstakes, I've done my own bit of school work-- a "How I spent My Summer Vacation" essay.  Check it out and you'll know why I've been offline and on the page.

Hope your summer was sweet!
