Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, martini in the other, totally worn out and screaming,
"WOO HOO, what a ride!"

Savvy Girl
by Lynn Messina

won from Stop, Drop and Read

Chrissy Gibbons can't believe her luck. She landed a coveted summer internship at her favorite magazine, Savvy. She is befriended by the glamorous fashion editor Jessica and her crush on Michael the gorgeous college guy may turn into something more. But her biggest desire is to win the competition to be Savvy's first teen columnist. The problem is that between going to parties with Jessica and thinking of ways to charm Michael she hasn't come up with a topic for her column. During this exciting summer in New York City she struggles to balance her ambitions with her fun. Chrissy is living life in the fast lane...does she have what it takes to keep up?

Thank You For All Things
by Sandra Kring

won from Stark Raving Bibliophile

At eleven, Lucy McGowan knows she'll be a psychologist when she grows up. And her quirky and conflicted family provide plenty of opportunity to practice. Now Lucy, her "profoundly gifted" twin brother, Milo, her commitment-phobic mother, and her New Age grandmother are leaving Chicago to care for her dying grandfather in Wisconsin. In the rural town Lucy believes she will find the missing pieces to the puzzle of her past and possibly the truth about her missing father. But she discovers so much more - lessons in love and forgiveness that the adults around her will need help remembering if their family is ever to find peace and embrace the future.
