Reading Road Trip 2012 Giveaway

Thanks for stopping by the Reading Road Trip 2012-hosted by  I Like These Books and Icey Books Our license plates say that our state is famous for it's potatos but Idaho has more to offer than french fries!   
Idaho is famous for its Whitewater Rafting-

Incredible parks like Yellowstone-



Idaho offers a wide variety of activities for the outdoor enthusiast-we tend to play hard!
The book I've chosen for this giveaway is by Idaho author Chris Crutcher. A cool guy who writes novels for young adults. Hers's the magical thing about his writing-When I have a boy walk into the library who has reluctant reader written all over him I immediately pull Chris Crutcher's books from the shelf. Most of the time my reluctant reader comes back for another Crutcher book.
And so without further ado I give you Deadline by Chris Crutcher-
Synopsis taken from Chris Crutcher's website:
Ben Wolf has big things planned for his senior year. Had big things planned. Now what he has is some very bad news and only one year left to make his mark on the world.
How can a pint-sized, smart-ass seventeen-year-old do anything significant in the nowheresville of Trout, Idaho?
First, Ben makes sure that no one else knows what is going on—not his superstar quarterback brother, Cody, not his parents, not his coach, no one. Next, he decides to become the best 127-pound football player Trout High has ever seen; to give his close-minded civics teacher a daily migraine; and to help the local drunk clean up his act.
And then there's Dallas Suzuki. Amazingly perfect, fascinating Dallas Suzuki, who may or may not give Ben the time of day. Really, she's first on the list.
Living with a secret isn't easy, though, and Ben's resolve begins to crumble . . . especially when he realizes that he isn't the only person in Trout with secrets.
Sounds good huh?

  6. I spent Christmas 2011 in Post Falls, Idaho with my fiance' at his grandmother's house. Compared to Spokane, where he actually resides, it was so quiet and peaceful there, more like Alabama, where I live.
