ARC Giveaway of Kody Keplinger's SHUT OUT!

We're giving away an ARC of Kody Keplinger's second novel, SHUT OUT!

Shut Out is
"A contemporary reimagining of the Greek play, 'Lysistrata', in which high school senior Lissa decides it's time to end her school's ridiculous sports rivalry once and for all by starting a hook-up strike."

Available from Little, Brown/Poppy on September 5th, 2011, Shut Out takes on the sexual politics of high school through a comical cast of characters, not least of all Lissa herself. It's a great followup to Kody's first book, The DUFF (Designated Ugly Fat Friend). We convinced Kody to provide YA Highway with one of her precious first ARCs for this giveaway, because we knew exactly how we'd do it...


YA Highway SHUT OUT Giveaway!

TO ENTER
  • For one entry, follow YA Highway and comment with your name and email address
  • For five extra entries, include a link to a SHUT OUT photo of yourself -- a scowl and black stripes. Some of us used makeup or face paint, others of us used Paint or Photoshop. Let us know if we can include your photo in the winner announcement post.
  • US/Canada only (sorry!)
We'll pick a winner Wednesday, May 18th. Good luck!
Kirsten Hubbard

Kirsten is the author of Like Mandarin, Wanderlove, and the middle grade novel Watch the Sky.
