Crushing on Jaclyn Moriarty Give-away

Thinking over how much I love the creative genius that is Jaclyn Moriarty and how many other people heart her to the death and then there's some people who haven't even read her (!) has prompted me to share some Moriarty love :)

Here's an International Give-Away.

There's four books in the Ashbury/Brookfield High series. And, just to confuse everyone, they are released with not only different covers, but different titles too.

#1. Feeling Sorry For Celia

#2 Finding Cassie Crazy, The Year of Secret Assignments

#3. The Betrayal of Bindy Mackenzie, The Murder of Bindy Mackenzie, Becoming Bindy Mackenzie

#4. Dreaming of Amelia, The Ghosts of Ashbury High

For this give-away: the winners get their choice of one of the Ashbury/Brookfield books. 
You don't have to read them in order :) 

If you have never had The Jaclyn Moriarty Experience (!) I really recommend #2 (I read this one first) it is one of my favourite books ever. It really is a YA must-read.

#1 is a personal fave of a few friends of mine, and just as lovely. And, Elizabeth and Saxon go to Coffs Harbour (where I live!) and say how beautiful and simply awesome it is. <3

#4 I loved oh-so-much. My review here. It's a stand-alone, but I already loved the characters from #2, so I instantly connected, there is a lot of characters, so not sure if it's confusing without having read #2 first?

#3 is truly hilarious, but pretty quirky :)

You can have a bonus entry for sharing the love anywhere :)

There will be two winners :)
