Contest Monday: Win a Copy of My Life in Pink & Green

Wow! Last week's Contest Monday was our biggest Contest Monday response ever! So let's keep the excitement going with another contest. Today's prize is a SIGNED paperback ARC of My Life in Pink & Green by Lisa Greenwald, which doesn't come out until March 1st.

About the book (from "Twelve-year-old Lucy Desberg is a natural problem solver. After the local homecoming queen shows up at her family’s struggling drugstore with a beauty disaster that Lucy helps to fix, Lucy has a long line of makeover customers for every school dance and bat mitzvah. But all the makeup tips in the world won’t help save the pharmacy. If only she could find a way to make the pharmacy the center of town again—a place where people want to spend time, like in the old days. Lucy dreams up a solution that could resuscitate the family business and help the environment, too. But will Lucy’s family stop fighting long enough to listen to a seventh-grader?

This book is a funny and sweet debut featuring an unforgettable narrator who knows what she wants, whether it’s great makeup, a killer business plan, or a better world."

I didn't know this revolved around a family business - much less, a pharmacy! I cannot imagine how a pharmacy could again be the center of the town...interesting!

Please sign me up. I follow and posted about this on my sidebar under The Grapevine on my blog.
