The Girl of Fire and Thorns

Every Friday we give a new book away. To get the book, it's simple: just be the first to fill out the form at the bottom of the page. (Note: you must be a Fresno County resident to be eligible for Free Fridays.)

The Girl of Fire and Thorns by Rae Carson

Elisa is the chosen one.

But she is also the younger of two princesses, the one who has never done anything remarkable. She can’t see how she ever will.

Now, on her sixteenth birthday, she has become the secret wife of a
handsome and worldly king—a king whose country is in turmoil. A king who
needs the chosen one, not a failure of a princess.

And he’s not the only one who needs her. Savage enemies seething
with dark magic are hunting her. A daring, determined revolutionary
thinks she could be his people’s savior. And he looks at her in a way
that no man has ever looked at her before. Soon it is not just her life,
but her very heart that is at stake.

Elisa could be everything to those who need her most. If the
prophecy is fulfilled. If she finds the power deep within herself. If
she doesn’t die young.

Most of the chosen do.

Congrats Katie!! I'll be sending out The Girl of Fire and Thorns.
