Contest - Win Michelle Tea's New Novel Mermaid in Chelsea Creek and a $100 Threadless Gift Certificate
So many quality children's books are being published today, but Michelle Tea's new YA novel Mermaid in Chelsea Creek stands out. The first book in a trilogy tackles modern environmental and social issues seamlessly within its truly fantastic story.
For a chance at winning this book and a $100 Threadless gift certificate, leave a comment with the name of your favorite childhood book series. Mine was L. Frank Baum's Oz books, which were surprisingly darker than the 1939 film.
One winner, chosen randomly from the commenters, will receive the following prizes:
Michelle Tea's novel Mermaid in Chelsea Creek
A $100 Threadless gift certificate to buy book-related t-shirts like Storytellers, The Best Channels Since 1465, Fahrenheit 451, Brainy Rainbow, or Word!, and music-related t-shirts like Death Note, Funkalicious, Music Snob, or anything else that catches your fancy.
If you have already have this book or it doesn't interest you, I am happy to substitute a second $100 Threadless gift certificate.
The winner will be chosen randomly at midnight ET Friday evening (July 12th).
