YA Book Review: Golden + a Shannon Wendtland Giveaway!!

I love discovering new authors to recommend.  If you don’t already know how I feel about Shannon Wendtland, check out my reviews of A Quarrel Called and A Calling of Quarrels, the first 2 books in the Stewards of the Plane series.  Now, I’m told Shannon has been busily typing away at finishing the 3rd book, and I promise you that when the time comes I will let you know how it measures up to the others.  I have no doubt it will blow my mind.  That’s what Shannons do.  To celebrate the October 4 release of A Calling of Quarrels, Shannon and I decided to offer you a giveaway of epic proportions.  3 prizes.  3 chances to win.  And they all involve my 2 favorite books of the year.   So after you read this review of my latest discovery, scroll down and enter that stuff.  Because yeah yeah.

Lit Mama's YA Book Review of Golden by Jessi Kirby

Golden has been out for a while, but for some reason I just discovered it.  I’m so glad I did.  My friends, I am on a YA roll right now–meaning I’ve discovered a cache of really good stuff.  Shannon Wendtland started it and Jessi Kirby just kept it going.

This is one of those surprising, lyrical, intriguing books that you don’t expect.  It’s one of those “I’m a good girl, valedictorian, scholarship-worthy high schooler who has never done anything wrong and high school is almost over” books.  But don’t let that lull you into complacency.  Because what Parker decides to do to remedy that omission changes everything.  Everything.

See, she finds the journal of a girl who died 10 years ago in a car accident.  And in that journal is a love story.  And in that love story are some things Parker recognizes and some other things she… hopes.  So she sets out with her best friend and the cute boy she’s been holding off for, like, 5 years to see if that hope can be fulfilled.

And she learns more about herself than the last 17 years have taught her.  And she starts to see the world a little differently.  And the world becomes something brand new.

This is a book for both you and your teen to love.  The mystery of it all is enchanting enough, but when you add in very real characters who are all trying to find their way?  Well, there’s someone in this book you can relate to.  That I promise you.  Plus, lots of Robert Frost references are sprinkled through the book, so it could well turn your teen on to poetry.  Which would rock.

Ready for the giveaway?  Well, okay then.
