Win a copy of "A Certain Strain of Peculiar!"


Win A Copy of "A Certain Strain of Peculiar" by Gigi Amateau!

Description from Amazon

"This is the last time Mary Harold will have a panic attack at school when kids call her "the grossest girl." If Mom won’t move back to Alabama, her thirteen-year-old daughter will just have to drive herself 691 miles to Grandma Ayma’s farmhouse — and a whole new life. With Ayma’s loving support, Mary Harold is soon strong enough to help Bud, the Cherokee farm manager, wrangle the cows, and confident enough to stand up for his daughter, Dixie, a girl with a strain of peculiar that makes her whinny and stamp like a horse to keep the world at bay. Mary Harold still misses her mom, but has started to have dreams of the Black Warrior Forest that are offering clues. As she listens to their message, and to her own heart, she discovers how powerful and surprising the bonds of family can be. "

This sounds like an awesome book! Please enter me.

In my house, my family rarely eats at the same time or together. Sometimes we eat in our rooms or on the couch but if we end up eating at same table with someone its more coincidence than an actual intention to eat together.

My life is peculiar because I'm a peculiar person. I'm addicted to books and writing, and I love computers and randomly research theoretical physics in my spare time.
