Weekend Book Giveaway: The Beast is an Animal

This week

From the publisher:

Alys was seven when the soul eaters came to her village. These soul eaters, twin sisters who were abandoned by their father and slowly morphed into something not quite human, devour human souls. Alys, and all the other children, were spared–and they were sent to live in a neighboring village. There the devout people created a strict world where good and evil are as fundamental as the nursery rhymes children sing. Fear of the soul eaters–and of the Beast they believe guides them–rule village life. But the Beast is not what they think it is. And neither is Alys. Inside, Alys feels connected to the soul eaters, and maybe even to the Beast itself. As she grows from a child to a teenager, she longs for the freedom of the forest. And she has a gift she can tell no one, for fear they will call her a witch. When disaster strikes, Alys finds herself on a journey to heal herself and her world. A journey that will take her through the darkest parts of the forest, where danger threatens her from the outside–and from within her own heart and soul.

For your chance to win, tell me about a time that you were afraid of something. How did you overcome that fear? Or, if it is a new fear, how do you plan to overcome it?

    I am scared to death of spiders, and I don’t think I can ever overcome it. My current method is to jump up and down screaming, “SPIDER!” until someone comes by and removes/kills it.

      Congratulations, Margaret! You are our winner. A copy of “The Beast is an Animal will be sent to your library and your teen librarian will contact you when it arrives.

      And I think your strategy for dealing spiders is the same as mine!

    I have a fear of mannequins, they really freak me out. When I go shopping if I see one I avoid going near it! If there are a lot of them I will walk out of the store. I don’t know that I will ever get over the fear of them. Maybe I will start a movement to rid the world of mannequins!
