Weekend Book Giveaway: A Very, Very Bad Thing

This week we’re giving away an Advanced Reader Copy of A Very, Very Bad Thing by Jeffery Self. This isn’t out until October 31st, 2017 and you could be one of the first to read it!

From the publisher: Marley doesn’t just want to be labeled The Gay Kid, but he doesn’t have much else going on. He doesn’t have any hobbies. Or interests. He’s the only kid he knows without a passion . . . until Christopher comes to town. He’s smart, cute, gay, and . . . the son of the country’s most famous, most bigoted television evangelist.

Marley and Christopher immediately spark — and become inseparable. For a month, it’s heaven. Then Christopher’s parents send him to a Pray Away the Gay program, which leads to even worse things. Hurt and outraged, Marley tells a very big lie — and then has to navigate its repercussions.

For your chance to win tell us about a lie a friend or classmate told and the repercussions it had. What advice would you have given to you friend or classmate if they had told you about the lie beforehand? Or tell us if there is ever a good situation to tell lie in. Why or why not?

Winner will be picked on Tuesday, October 17th, 21017 with the assistance of Random Number Generator. Be sure to leave a name with your entry, and check back to see if you won. To win you must be a teen (6th-12th grade, or age 12-18) who uses a Sno-Isle Library.
