GIVEAWAY Girl Saves Boy by Steph Bowe

The first time we met, Jewel Valentine saved my life. 

Isn’t it enough having your very own terminal disease, without your mother dying? Or your father dating your Art teacher? 

No wonder Sacha Thomas ends up in the lake that Saturday evening… 

But the real question is: how does he end up in love with Jewel Valentine?

With the help of quirky teenage prodigies Little Al and True Grisham, Sacha and Jewel have a crazy adventure, with a little lobster emancipation along the way. 

But Sacha’s running out of time, and Jewel has secrets of her own. 

Girl Saves Boy is a hugely talented debut novel, funny and sad, silly and wise. It’s a story of life, death, love… and garden gnomes.

Girl Saves Boy is 16 year old Aussie author Steph Bowe's debut

It was released in Australia one week ago and will be available in the US in 2011

This give-away is open internationally - I'll post it out to wherever the winner lives

Closes Sept 14

Praise for Girl Saves Boy:
"Beautiful and fresh, Girl Saves Boy is full of the absolute truth—life is complicated. I could not put it down." 
 Rebecca Stead 

"Steph Bowe’s debut is charming and quirky and heartfelt enough to make you catch your breath when you least expect it. Readers will adore Girl Saves Boy and I can’t wait to see what comes next."
 Simmone Howell
