Give It Forward Book Giveaway: The Sky is Everywhere by Jandy Nelson

March 26th, 2011 by Debbie's World of Books

I won this book through another Give-it-Forward at the blog Inside Looking Out and it was amazing!  You can read my review here.

Summary from Goodreads.com: Seventeen-year-old Lennie Walker, bookworm and band geek, plays second clarinet and spends her time tucked safely and happily in the shadow of her fiery older sister, Bailey. But when Bailey dies abruptly, Lennie is catapulted to center stage of her own life—and, despite her nonexistent history with boys, suddenly finds herself struggling to balance two. Toby was Bailey’s boyfriend; his grief mirrors Lennie’s own. Joe is the new boy in town, a transplant from Paris whose nearly magical grin is matched only by his musical talent. For Lennie, they’re the sun and the moon; one boy takes her out of her sorrow, the other comforts her in it. But just like their celestial counterparts, they can’t collide without the whole wide world exploding.

I’m going to give away a copy of THE SKY IS EVERYWHERE because it was such a wonderful read. You can enter below.

BUT! (and this is a big BUT) here’s the catch, to enter my giveaway you have to be willing to do the SAME giveaway on your blog or Facebook. Meaning, you have to buy the book for someone else within TWO WEEKS of receiving the book from me. Your ONLY out is this: if you don’t love THE SKY IS EVERYWHERE enough to keep it and buy it for someone, you can give away the one you’ve received from me. But the giveaway has to continue. Meaning, whoever wins your giveaway has to buy it for their winner or give away the one they’ve received from you, depending on their feelings on it.

Thank you to Casey McCormick for getting this whole blog-chain-contest started.  You can read about how much she loves the book here.

So let’s do this! RULES:

1. You MUST have a blog or Facebook or somewhere you can give the book away and be clear about the rules (Twitter can’t support it, for example).

2. You MUST be willing to hold this exact giveaway on your blog or Facebook in which you purchase this book for someone else (or give away the one you receive from me, IF you don’t love it) and require that YOUR winner do the same. Preferably within TWO WEEKS of receiving the book from me.

2. If you win, I ask that you PLEASE enter your giveaway into the linky widget HERE have YOUR winner do the same on THIS POST AT CASEY’S BLOG (not on my blog or your blog). So we can track how long the chain lasts and how many purchases we achieve.

3. Open to US only.

4. To enter just leave a comment here with a way to contact you.

5. You can get 1 extra entry by advertising this giveaway and leaving a link (i.e. Tweet, link from your blog, etc.)

6. Giveaway ends April 9.
