Prize Pack #3: Adults



For the Adult prize pack, we have another item donated from Bella Bejeweled. This time, it is the Bella, Love necklace inspired by the Twilight series. As I said for the YA contest, this is a great piece because you don't have to be a fan of the series to enjoy it!

Our next item in the prize pack is a shirt from a shop called east4thstreet. Heather has kindly donated this shirt. It's cute with a fun, motivational message: Be a Little Braver.

And finally, the adults get a book as well.
This one is The Safety of Secrets by DeLaune Michel, which was kindly donated by the author as well!

For those that don't know what this book is about, here is the summary:

"Now we're just alike." So begins Fiona and Patricia's friendship that warm autumn morning in first grade in Lake Charles, Louisiana, their bond forged ever closer by Fiona's abusive mother and Patricia's neglectful one. Their relationship is a source of continuity and strength through their move to L.A. to become actresses; through Fiona's marriage and Patricia's sudden fame. When husband and career pressures exact a toll, the women wonder if their friendship can survive. Then a dark secret from their past emerges, threatening to destroy not only their bond, but all they've worked for as well.

The Safety of Secrets is a beautifully written exploration of the bonds forged in childhood and challenged decades later, of the fulfillment of dreams and the damage they can cause, and of secrets being uncovered and the truth we find inside.



TO COME:
I will have an interview with the creator behind east4thstreet, Heather, up soon. I will hopefully have an interview with the author of The Safety of Secrets as well!

Deadline: December 30 at 11:59 EST
