Congrats to Paula for winning Need You Now. If you didn't win, I have the copy I read that I will probably give away in a few weeks.
Today, I'm giving away A Sound Among the Trees.
To enter to win A Sound Among Trees, leave a comment about trees. I LOVE me some trees. They minister to my soul. Thankfully, I live surrounded by beautiful trees. Or, you can leave a comment about today's YA books, what you read as a teen, or basically anything!
Get a second entry by following the blog and leaving a second comment letting me know you follow.

As many of you know, I am passionate about good books for kids/teens. While I am against censorship, I strongly believe we need to match kids with age-appopriate books. There is a lot of garbage out there, especially for teens. Of the 50 plus books I got free at the library convention a few weeks ago, only a handful are ones I would want my eleven-year-old niece reading. With that being said, I want to mention a great new author for Christian YA, Betsy St. Amant. Addison Blakely: Confessions of a PK Kid is her first YA book, and here's a cute interview with both Betsy and Wes, the cute but rebellious boy in the story. http://theboredmommy.blogspot.com/2012/05/commercial-break-book-review-of-betsy.html If you are looking for a Christian book that deals with real topics for young adults, check this one out. (I reviewed it on my blog here.)
That's just my opinion, and I think I'm going to start posting about authors I enjoy for teens because reading the back of some of these books that are coming out in the next year left me wanting some good old fashion coming of age stories! (Can you tell I don't enjoy science fiction or fantasy, both of which are the rage right now?)
