Win 20 Boy Summer by Sarah Ockler!!

Win 1 of 5 copies of "20 Boy Summer!" By Sarah Ockler

""Don't worry, Anna. I'll tell her, okay? Just let me think about the best way to do it."
"Promise me? Promise you won't say anything?"
"Don't worry." I laughed. "It's our secret, right?"

According to her best friend Frankie, twenty days in Zanzibar Bay is the perfect opportunity to have a summer fling, and if they meet one boy ever day, there's a pretty good chance Anna will find her first summer romance. Anna lightheartedly agrees to the game, but there's something she hasn't told Frankie---she's already had that kind of romance, and it was with Frankie's older brother, Matt, just before his tragic death one year ago.

Beautifully written and emotionally honest, this is a debut novel that explores what it truly means to love someone and what it means to grieve, and ultimately, how to make the most of every single moment this world has to offer."

MJ said...

I follow.


Katie said...

Hmm..I'd attempt to glue it all together and make a small window thing, probably not for a real house but maybe a birdhouse or just for decoration. Or maybe a collage like people do with pieces from magazines and all the little pieces make up one big picture.

oooo! I love mosaics! Don't you? Basically I'll have this wooden frame and do this sea-glass college but form a hollow heart in the middle. It'll be like a giant photoframe if you want ;P

Or dresses! Rhinestones are SO last year. Sea-glass is all the rage! lol

You're on my blogroll, I'll sneak you into my sidebars, and I've been following you via google reader but I'm not sure if that counts xD

Bird said...

I am not sure what I would do with sea glass. maybe make a necklace or bracelet out of it.

Well, I think the jewelry would be awesome so that would be one thing. But I also make mosaics. I think it would be cool to try to replicate the cover on a candle holder. The candle shining through would give it an awesome glow.

Drea said...

Oh and I'm a follower too. And will tweet about it in a moment (@awaitinserenity)

Hi i'm new to your site and i must say its so Cute!!! Love it!!
I cant wait to read this book!

I would try to make
- a wind chime!
i would fuse the different pieces of sea glass together to form cylinders. And to hold all of the cylinders together would be a big sea glass heart like in the picture!( with one rose colored piece of course) It would look so pretty when the light reflected off of it, and would make beautiful music!!

-I will defiantly follow this blog
- I'm going to post about this contest on my blog as soon as i figure out how to make a side bar link

p.s.- check out my blog :)

i follow your blog

if i had the skill, i would make a large pendant lamp out of sea glass. I first thought of a chandelier but those bring to mind fancy hotels and haunted houses. So, sort of a chandelier but much more modern and to turn part of the living room into a dining area. It would be long, delicate but still very modern and timeless.

this was a great question! thanks!

If I had some sea glass I'd make something like a star or a heart that would be big enough to hang in the windo and look beautiful. I love sea glass. I wish I had some right now so I could make some art! I just love the cover of 20 Boy Summer. It's so pretty.


Lindsay said...

I'd make a Christmas tree ornament/suncatcher.

I'm going to post on Twitter!


Jessica said...

If I had a bunch of sea glass, I would make a rocket ship and go to mars. There I would meet a very nice martian and we would get married. We would honeymoon on Venus. Then we would return home where we would disemble our rocketship and sell the sea glass to pay for food for unprivleged kids.

Haha totally not possible but I think that is a very creative answer.

If I had a lot of sea-glass, I would build a box out of it. I'd try to find pieces that fit together well and glue them together to a neat little box that I could put things in. I'm guessing that would take a lot of time and sea-glass, but it would be really cool.
