Contest Monday: Win a Copy of Reality Check

Still have that nasty cough (and a viscious sore throat) but nothing will stop Contest Monday! Well, usually anyways. This week's prize is for an ARC of Peter Abrahams' Reality Check.

About the Book (From "QB of the varsity football team. Passing grades in all his classes. Dating the hottest—and smartest—girl at school. Summer job paying more than minimum wage. Things in Cody's world seem to be going pretty well. Until, that is, his girlfriend, Clea, is sent off to boarding school across the country, and a torn ACL ends his high school football career. But bad things come in threes—or in Cody's case, sixes and twelves—and the worst is yet to come. While limping through town one day, Cody sees a newspaper heading: "Local Girl Missing." Clea, now his ex, has disappeared from her boarding school in Vermont, and the only clue is a letter she sent to Cody the morning of her disappearance. With that as his guide, Cody sets out to find out what happened. Once in Vermont, he unearths the town's secrets—and finds out that football isn't the only thing he's good at. Reality Check is another edge-of-your-seat suspense novel by the New York Times bestselling and Edgar Award-nominated author of Down the Rabbit Hole."

Reality Check won't be released until April 28th, so this is your chance to get it early!

You can call it whatever you want. :-) Stop by every week (even if you don't want to enter) and leave me the URL and I'll post them so everyone can see it.

I think it could be fun to get a whole bunch of contests going on Mondays.
