Where It Began - Giveaway (INTL)

To celebrate the release of my web design client's debut YA novel, one lucky winner will get a hardcover copy of Where It Began by Ann Redisch Stampler. The book debuts on March 6, 2012 from Simon Pulse

From Goodreads

Sometimes the end is just the beginning. 

Gabby lived under the radar until her makeover. Way under. But when she started her senior year as a blonder, better-dressed version of herself, she struck gold: Billy Nash believed she was a the flawless girl she was pretending to be. The next eight months with Billy were bliss...Until the night Gabby woke up on the ground next to the remains of his BMW without a single memory of how she got there. 

And Billy's nowhere to be found. 

All Gabby wants is to make everything perfect again. But getting her life back isn't difficult, it's impossible. Because nothing is the same, and Gabby's beginning to realize she's missed more than a few danger signs along the way. 

It's time for Gabby to face the truth, even if it means everything changes. 

Especially if it means everything changes.

You can read the first few pages of Where It Began on simonandschuster.com.


1. This giveaway is open Internationally, wherever bookdepository.com ships. If you are afraid your book may get "lost" in transit (those of you with shifty postal delivery, you know what I'm talking about) then please think twice before entering.

2. The book is recommended for older teens and adults due to the edgy content of the story, including underage drinking, drug use, and sex. If you (and/or your parents, if you are a minor) will be uncomfortable with this, please think twice before entering. This is definitely a book that explores difficult issues.

3. You must be at least 13 to enter the giveaway or have a parent or guardian's permission to enter. DO NOT leave your email address in the Comments section. It will be deleted! Please use the Rafflecopter widget which keeps your contact info private.

4. The winner will also have the option of doing a guest post or podcast on RNSL, with Alethea, after reading the book. Details will be worked out later on.
