The Lucky Leprechaun Hop: Win Sean Griswold's Head by Lindsey Leavitt



The Lucky Leprechaun Hop is hosted by I Am a Reader, Not a Writer. Between Thursday March 17th and March 20th, you can visit all the lovely blogs below and enter to win free books.

In celebration of my One A Day Y.A. Project blog launch, I am giving away a debut author book from March. ETA: Hey, the cover is green too!


Sean Griswold’s Head by Lindsey Leavitt

Summary:
Payton Gritas likes everything just so-she even color-codes the pages of her school planner. But her perfectly organized life falls apart when she learns that her father has MS-and that her parents have been keeping it a secret. Payton refuses to speak to her parents about the illness and lands herself in the school guidance office where she's encouraged to choose a personal focus exercise to help her deal with her feelings. It's a completely ridiculous exercise, but Payton decides to try it. For her focus object, she chooses Sean Griswold's head. Sean and Payton have been linked since kindergarten (Gritas/Griswold-it's an alphabetical order thing) but she's never really known him. The more Payton focuses on his head, the more Payton becomes intrigued with Sean Griswold. Sean is training for a bike race, shares Payton's Seinfeld obsession, and seems to have a secret or two of his own. As their relationship develops, Payton realizes that it actually helps to focus on something else for awhile-especially something like Sean Griswold. But focusing on Sean won't fix her battered relationship with her father. For that, Payton has to focus on herself.

  52. I hate this question. But you look nice today. lol. It's just too hard to choose. Let's see when I was a YA my favorites were Jane Eyre, Anne of Green Gables and Nancy Drew, which just makes me sound really old, huh. Wow. Ok, fav so far this year is Delirium. Too many to choose one of all time.
