Fun in the Sun Giveaway Hop

It's time for a Giveaway Hop. 


I am excited to be participating and as the theme of my blog is a mother and daughter reading together I am going to giveaway TWO books. One is mom's choice the other is daughters! 
One winner will receive BOTH books!

Daughters Choice: The first book in a brand new girls series for readers ages 6-9. Finished Copy

Trouble at Trident Academy

In this start to a new series starring Shelly the mermaid, a classroom conflict is no fun—even when school is 20,000 leagues under the sea.It’s MerGirl Shelly Siren’s first day at a new school, and she is nervous from the tip of her head to the end of her sparkling mermaid tail. How will she ever fit in at the prestigious Trident Academy? Everyone there is so smart and so pretty and so rich. At least she and her best friend, Echo, are in the same class, but so is Pearl, a spoiled know-it-all who only wants to make trouble for Shelly; Rocky, a MerBoy who loves to tease everyone; and Kiki, a shy MerGirl who’s new to Trident City.     At first Shelly and Echo have lots of fun: eating lunch together, trying to make grumpy Mr. Fangtooth smile, and joining after-school clubs. But when Shelly and Echo have an argument about their very first school assignment, Pearl gets involved and makes matters worse. Will Shelly and Echo fix their friendship?





Mom's Choice: The book I am just finishing and enjoying. This is an Advanced copy as the paperback pub date is 7-10-12.
The Homecoming of Samuel Lake: A Novel

Every first Sunday in June, members of the Moses clan gather for an annual reunion at a sprawling hundred-acre farm in Arkansas. And every year, Samuel Lake, a vibrant and committed young preacher, brings his beloved wife, Willadee Moses, and their three children back for the festivities. In the midst of it all, Samuel and Willadee’s outspoken eleven-year-old daughter, Swan, is a bright light. Her high spirits and fearlessness have alternately seduced and bedeviled three generations of the family. But just as the reunion is getting under way, tragedy strikes, jolting the family to their core and setting the stage for a summer of crisis and profound change. 
 
With the clear-eyed wisdom that illuminates the most tragic—and triumphant—aspects of human nature, Jenny Wingfield has created an enduring work of fiction

  1. I"m sure it will give my age away, but when I was a kid I loved Anne of Green Gables, The Babysitters club, and Sweet Valley High. Oh, and the Chronicles of Narnia.

    1. I read those Babysitter club books like they were going out of style. One of my most horrible moments was when I left book 2, the Claudia one with a pink cover.. at a restaurant and my parents wouldn't turn around to get it!
