Shrinking Violet by Danielle Joseph
Contest # 2
Book Out: May 5, 2009 (We're getting close now!)
Summary: High school senior Teresa Adams is so painfully shy that she dreads speaking to anyone in the hallways or getting called on in class. But in the privacy of her bedroom with her iPod in hand, she rocks out -- doing mock broadcasts for Miami's hottest FM radio station, which happens to be owned by her stepfather. When a slot opens up at The SLAM, Tere surprises herself by blossoming behind the mike into confident, sexy Sweet T -- and to everyone's shock, she's a hit! Even Gavin, the only guy in school who she dares to talk to, raves about the mysterious DJ's awesome taste in music. But when The SLAM announces a songwriting contest -- and a prom date with Sweet T is the grand prize -- Sweet T's dream could turn into Tere's worst nightmare....
Contest: As Tere is exceptionally shy and finds solace and release in her music, this contest will combine those two. To enter, you have to leave a comment (with your email!) of a song that would suit someone who is shy.
Danielle Joseph is going to help choose the winner, based on your song, and if you DO win...
First Place: An ARC of Shrinking Violet and Danielle will include your song on the book's soundtrack, which you can find on her website:
Second Place: A small Shrinking Violet gift pack (purple again!)-- lip gloss, notepads, and violet gum.
Open too: International (this might be the last contest open to everyone for a little while, so take advantage!)
Ends: Saturday, March 21
