Contest Monday: Win a copy Paper Towns

It's a rainy gloomy day here, so I think it's a perfect time to cheer everyone up by posting a new Contest Monday. Today's prize is an ARC copy of Paper Towns by John Green.

About the Book (From "Quentin Jacobsen has spent a lifetime loving the magnificently adventurous Margo Roth Spiegelman from afar. So when she cracks open a window and climbs back into his life--dressed like a ninja and summoning him for an ingenious campaign of revenge--he follows.

After their all-nighter ends and a new day breaks, Q arrives at school to discover that Margo, always an enigma, has now become a mystery. But Q soon learns that there are clues--and they're for him. Urged down a disconnected path, the closer he gets, the less Q sees of the girl he thought he knew.

Printz medalist John Green returns with the brilliant wit and searing emotional honesty that have inspired a new generation of readers. Enigmatic Margo is dramatically captured in a unique dual-cover treatment."

Okay so I've tried Mr. Green's book before, Looking for Alaska, and it wasn't as wonderful as I had heard before. so he definitely needs to redeem himself to me :P Would love to (hope to! ;P) win! :D
