Verse Week Giveaway - Love & Leftovers by Sarah Tregay

Huge thanks to the lovely Sarah Tregay for her fabulous Verse Week guest post and for sponsoring a giveaway of the paperback edition of her wonderful novel in verse, Love & Leftovers.

This is one of the books that I recommend all the time, even to the verse averse. Here's the summary: 

Romantic and bittersweet, Love and Leftovers captures one girl’s experience with family, friends, and love. Dragged to New Hampshire for the summer, Marcie soon realizes that her mom has no plans for them to return to Marcie’s father in Idaho. As Marcie starts at a new school, without her ragtag group of friends called the Leftovers, a new romance heats up, but she struggles to understand what love really means.

Perfect for fans of romances like Anna and the French Kiss and those by Sarah Dessen as well as readers of poetry, Love and Leftovers is a beautiful and fresh take on love.

(The giveaway is now over. Thanks to all who entered!)

To enter, all you need to do is fill out the entry below--it's that easy!

I'll draw a random winner on May 7. 

If you've already read Love & Leftovers, we certainly appreciate your spreading the word about the giveaway on Twitter or other social media so we can encourage people to try a verse novel.

Announcement: New Commenting System

Hi all! Just a quick post to our lovely commenters. I am really frustrated with some loading issues and other annoying stuff related to Disqus, so I'm testing out the native blog commenting system on my content management system (which I can easily manage from my phone). 

Please let me know if you have any trouble.

Elsewhere: Listen to Us on on Chronicles of Crotty

Laura and I are invading your ears all over the internet lately. Our Twitter friend Rey invited us to be guests on his podcast, Chronicles of Crotty.

Now, I need to warn you: this is a sports podcast. However, in true Laura and Sarah fashion, we managed to veer waaaaaay off-topic. So if you want hear us talk about the Pacey Witter Theorem, the awesomeness of the movie Battleship, Sir Mix-a-Lot and our stance on the short-sleeved basketball uniforms known as "shirseys," tune in over here!
