Winter Wonderland Giveaway: The Snowball Effect by Holly Nicole Hoxter

I want to give a big thanks to Elie of Ellz Readz for offering up her signed copy of The Snowball Effect for this giveaway.   Thanks, Elie!!
So, up for grabs today is The Snowball Effect; check it out:

The Snowball Effect
by Holly Nicole Hoxter

from Goodreads:
PLainey Pike can tell you everything you need to know about the people in her family just by letting you know how they died. Her reckless stepfather drove his motorcycle off the highway and caused the biggest traffic jam in years. Her long-suffering grandmother lived through cancer and a heart attack before finally succumbing to a stroke. And Lainey's mother#151;well, Lainey's mother hanged herself in the basement just days after Lainey's high school graduation. PNow Lainey's five-year-old brother is an orphan and her estranged older sister is moving back home to be his guardian. Meanwhile, Lainey's boyfriend is thinking about having a family of their own, and her best friends are always asking the wrong sorts of questions and giving advice Lainey doesn't want to hear. As she tries to pull away from everything familiar, Lainey meets an intriguing new guy who, through a series of Slurpees, burgers, and snowballs, helps her to make peace with a parent she never understood. 

Sounds great, right?  Want it?

  7. I haven't heard of this book. It sounds like a lot of fun though!

    My favorite thing about winter is the feeling. It's hard to explain, but there is something really special about standing out in the snow, while it's snowing. Especially those really big flakes you can catch on your tongue that fall softly but thickly. And, if it happens to be a beautiful, crisp night with the stars popping out... Wonderful. Love it! :)
