Twenty Boy Summer Book Giveaway!

"Don't worry, Anna. I'll tell her, okay? Just let me think about the best way to do it."

"Promise me? Promise you won't say anything?"

"Don't worry." I laughed. "It's our secret, right?"

According to her best friend Frankie, twenty days in Zanzibar Bay is the perfect opportunity to have a summer fling, and if they meet one boy ever day, there's a pretty good chance Anna will find her first summer romance. Anna lightheartedly agrees to the game, but there's something she hasn't told Frankie---she's already had that kind of romance, and it was with Frankie's older brother, Matt, just before his tragic death one year ago.

Beautifully written and emotionally honest, this is a debut novel that explores what it truly means to love someone and what it means to grieve, and ultimately, how to make the most of every single moment this world has to offer.

This summer will find me mostly working at the office but I plan to do a getaway weekend of camping in the outdoors. Haven't figured out where yet, but I'd like the spot to be near a lake for splashing about in.

Other than that I'm just enjoying my kids being home...especially my daughter who just finished her freshman year or college and who I'd LOVE to win this book for.
