Books I Enjoyed Giveaway #1 (CLOSED!)

Mackenzie, Lost and Found by Deborah Kerbel Publisher: Dundurn
Pub. Date: November 17th, 2008
Pages: 220
Age Level: 14+


Synopsis
Fifteen-year-old Mackenzie Hill knows something is up when she arrives home to find her father making a home-cooked dinner, instead of his standard delivery pizza. But nothing prepares her for the bombshell announcement: Mackenzie and her dad, alone since the death of her mother a year ago, are moving to Jerusalem, where her father has taken a position as a visiting professor university.

The adjustment from life in Canada to life in Israel is dramatic - though it's eased somewhat when Mackenzie is befriended by an American girl in her new school. The biggest shock of all comes when Mackenzie faces the wrath of her new friends, new community, and even her own father after she begins dating a Muslim boy.



Girl on the Other Side by Deborah Kerbel
Publisher: Dundurn
Pub. Date: October 30th, 2009
Pages: 184
Age Level: 12+

Synopsis

Tabby Freeman and Lora Froggett go to the same school, but they live in totally opposite worlds. Tabby is rich, pretty, and the most popular girl in her class. But behind closed doors, her 'perfect' life is rapidly coming apart at the seams.

On the other side, Lora is smart, timid, and the constant target of bullies. While struggling to survive the piranha-infested halls of her school, she becomes increasingly nervous that somebody might discover the unbearable truth about what's been happening to her family.

Despite their differences, Tabby and Lora have something in common - they're both harbouring dark secrets and a lot of pain. Although they've never been friends, a series of strange events causes their lives to crash together in ways neither could have ever imagined. And when the dust finally settles and all their secrets are forced out into the light, will the girls be saved or destroyed?

Hi everyone! As part of my Blogoversary Countdown Celebration I will be holding a series of 'Books I Enjoyed' Giveaways. These are all books that have gotten a 'B' or better in my reviews and I feel haven't gotten near as much attention as they deserve. My first 'Books I Enjoyed Giveaway' features what are probably the least known books of the ones I'll be giving away. This is a real shame as both books are in my favorites and I feel they are truly worth being read by everyone. So if you would like a chance to win these two terrific books, read the details and enter below.
