Monday's Book A Day Give Away

Today's give-away is the hauntingly well written The Declaration by Gemma Malley.

Anna Covey is a 'surplus'. She should not have been born. In a society in which aging is no longer feared, and death is no longer an inevitability, children are an abomination. Like all surpluses, Anna is living in Grange Hall and learning how to make amends for the selfish act her parents committed in having her. She is quietly accepting of her fate until, one day, a new inmate arrives. Anna's life is thrown into chaos. But is she brave enough to believe this mysterious boy? This is a tense and utterly compelling story about a society behind a wall, and the way in which two young people take the chance of breaking free.

The Rules:

Put The Declaration in the subject title of the email and email us at myfavouritebooksatblogspot(@) . If you've won, we'll contact you back and ask you for your postal address.

UK entrants only.

Duplicate entries for the SAME DAY competition will be disqualified.

Entries with no subject line will be deleted/seen as spam.

The competition will run on till 1st January 2009. This means that even if you don't enter this on the day the competition is run, you have time to do so for the rest of the month, till 1st January 09.

You may enter more than one competition. You may not enter twice for the same one though. Hope this makes sense to everyone!

Hi Michael

Thanks for the good wishes - this book is part of some others I've received from publishers to give away as part of the children's competitions coming up later in January. I've heard some excellent things about it, so I thought I'd offer one copy today.
