100 Followers Giveaway #1 (CLOSED!!!!)

Okay so I have had over 100 followers for a while now but I am just getting around to the best part. Contests! Yay! Over the next few weeks, I'll be posting a series of contest, starting with this one. So keep your eyes open. Also, this is my very first contest!

Ballads of Suburbia
by Stephanie Kuehnert

Kara hasn't been back to Oak Park since the end of junior year, when a heroin overdose nearly killed her and sirens heralded her exit. Four years later, she returns to face the music. Her life changed forever back in high school: her family disintegrated, she ran around with a whole new crowd of friends, she partied a little too hard, and she fell in love with gorgeous bad-boy Adrian, who left her to die that day in Scoville Park.....

Amid the music, the booze, the drugs, and the drama, her friends filled a notebook with heartbreakingly honest confessions of the moments that defined and shattered their young lives. Now, finally, Kara is ready to write her own.

Contest details:

~One lucky winner will win a copy of Ballads of Suburbia! (I somehow was sent two copies so I have a spare. Also, when it was shipped, part of the lower right-hand corner of the cover got bent.)

How to Enter(required):
~Leave a comment with a valid e-mail address. No e-mail address, no entry. (If you are uncomfortable leaving your e-mail in a comment, then e-mail it to me.)
~This contest is for followers only. If you don't follow my blog and want to enter, then look to your left and click that cute little button that says 'Follow'. :P
~Please Leave all entries in ONE comment.

+2 Add me to your blog roll.
+15 Purchase something from my photography website. (+7 for greeting cards. Purchases must be made a minimum of 5 days before the contest ending date so I can verify. Also, please send some sort of proof of purchase to get extra entries.)

it's insane how badly i want this book.
i just won a copy of I Wanna Be Your Joey Ramone from Stephanie, so having Ballads of Suburbia would make it even better.
