The Lost Girl read along: Da Rulz

So, you decided to participate in the read along, eh? Aren't you a smart cookie.

You know it will be a grand ol' time.

If you don't already know, the book we'll be reading in March is The Lost Girl by Sangu Mandanna. Go ahead and reserve your copy at the library now. The awesomeness will begin March 4th.

So here are "da rulz": 

* Be here or be square.
* You can participate through the comments section on the blog or through the Facebook post(s).

That's it. I'm a no rules kind of gal.

Of course, to entice you a bit more I'm offering up some goodies. Yes, you can win stuff. What can you win? I dunno yet. I'm still working on that-- but I'm thinking it will be a copy of the next month's read along title. (Who doesn't like free books, right?)

Now there are some rules for this one: 

* You have to actually participate. No lurking in the shadows for this one.
* You'll get 2 entries for every blog comment you post relating to the read along (i.e. responding to the discussion questions, completing the challenge task, whatever I throw out there).
* Want to participate through Facebook only? Well, that will earn you 1 entry per comment as well (same guidelines as above).
* Comment on the blog AND on Facebook... you do the math on that one.
* I can ship anywhere in the US or to a US mailing address. If you live internationally, the book will have to be an ebook format cuz I'm broke. You understand... 
* Oh, and you should be over 13 years of age as well. Just in case the material is questionable for your delicate minds. (Don't laugh. If my parents knew what I read at that age, they would probably die.)

Alright, so that's it! Happy reading!

The Lost GirlEva's life is not her own. She is a creation, an abomination--an echo. She was made by the Weavers as a copy of someone else, expected to replace a girl named Amarra, her "other," if she ever died. Eva spends every day studying that girl from far away, learning what Amarra does, what she eats, what it's like to kiss her boyfriend, Ray. So when Amarra is killed in a car crash, Eva should be ready.

But sixteen years of studying never prepared her for this.

Now she must abandon everything and everyone she's ever known--the guardians who raised her, the boy she's forbidden to love--to move to India and convince the world that Amarra is still alive.

What Eva finds is a grief-stricken family; parents unsure how to handle this echo they thought they wanted; and Ray, who knew every detail, every contour of Amarra. And when Eva is unexpectedly dealt a fatal blow that will change her existence forever, she is forced to choose: Stay and live out her years as a copy or leave and risk it all for the freedom to be an original. To be Eva.
