Judging a book by its video

I judge books by their covers all the time. I saw the advanced readers' copy for Hold Still by Nina LaCour and wasn't wowed. I didn't even read the back to find out what it was about (there were several other books in the box that stole my attention).

Then I saw this, the video for the book, and I'm hooked. I cannot wait to read it. It doesn't get released til October 20th but I have the ARC for it. And--this is how much I love you guys--I'm gonna give it away before I've even read it. I'll send it to the first person to leave a comment (include your email--not on the public space--so I can email you for your address).

The only catch? You have to live somewhere in Fresno County.

You got it! Are you the Janette that writes reviews for us? If so, I'll send the book to Woodward and you can pick it up from Gina.

Be sure to write a review! Can't wait to hear if the book is as good as the trailer.
