Midsummer's Eve Giveaway Hop: When Life Gives You O.J. Prize Pack


Welcome to the Midsummer's Eve Giveaway Hop!
Summer is in full swing here. I Am A Reader, Not A Writer has once again hosted a book-related giveaway blog hop with 200+ participating blogs. The Midsummer's Even Giveaway Hop will last for only 4 days. Start visiting the blogs listed on the linky below today and enter as many giveaways as you can!

While you're here, please feel free to enter all my current giveaways, including a $300 American Express Gift Card! Good luck!

I'm giving away a "juicy" When Life Gives You O.J. Prize Pack, including a hardcover copy of When Life Gives You O.J., a When Life Gives You O.J. water bottle and a When Life Gives You O.J. backpack!

Depending on your child, the phrase "summer reading" can bring about two responses -- an enthusiastic "yes!" or a dejected "do I have to?". When Life Gives You O.J. by Erica S. Perl. -- just selected by Amazon as a Best Book of the Month in June -- is a book that all kids ages 8-12 will want to take with them this summer on that long drive or plane ride or have included in their summer camp care package. The new release features believable characters, a hefty dose of humor and a fast-paced, age-appropriate storyline.

Called a "warm novel about family, friendship, and fitting in" by Publisher's Weekly, When Life Gives You O.J. is about a girl named Zelly who is miserable because she had to move from New York, where she felt she fit in, to Vermont, where her frizzy hair and crazy jewish family and makes her feel like an outsider. Like most kids, almost-eleven-year-old Zelly Fried desperately wants a dog. Unlike most kids, Zelly has a very unusual grandfather named Ace. So when Zelly begs for a dog, Ace intervenes and Zelly ends up with O.J. instead, who is definitely not a dog. What’s O.J.? O.J. is a “practice dog” made from an old plastic orange juice jug with a dog’s face drawn on the side. Now Zelly’s not just the new girl or just the weird new girl -- she’s dangerously close to becoming the weird new girl who walks around dragging a dumb old plastic jug, her “practice dog.” Is Ace’s plan so crazy it just might work, or is it just plain – as Ace would say – meshugge?

To get a sneak peak of the book, please watch this funny trailer. You may learn more about the author and the story behind the book at Erica's blog and her Facebook page.
