20 Things in 20 Days: Clue #8

To celebrate the launch of Twenty Boy Summer by Sarah Ockler, I'm blogging clue #8 for the 20 Things in 20 Days Scavenger Hunt. Answer clues and challenges to earn points toward the 20 Things grand prize, including 6 signed books from 2009 debut authors! Get a clue... June 11th-30th at 20 Things in 20 Days!

Today's clue:

Lisa Sandell, author of A MAP OF THE KNOWN WORLD, SONG OF THE SPARROW, and THE WEIGHT OF THE SKY, said that in Twenty Boy Summer, Ockler brings the salty tang of the ocean waves and the tingling anticipation of a first kiss to delicate life, while simultaneously evoking the mixed-up feelings of the friends, family, and loves left behind.

For 20 Things clue #8, if you have read any of Lisa's books, share your thoughts by posting a review on your blog or a bookstore, library, or book review site. Link to your review in the comments. If you haven't read any of Lisa's books, pick one up from the bookstore or library and leave a note in the comments letting us know that you did. 4 points per book (not site!) reviewed, or 2 points for becoming a new Lisa Sandell reader.

  1. Oh, I've been meaning to check out Song of the Sparrow. I put it on hold, does that count?

  3. I went to the library and tried to get A Map of the Known World, but all of the copies were checked out. So I put it on hold - and hopefully will get to read it soon. Does that count?

  5. I'm not sure why the link didn't go directly to my review.. but if you do go that link and then scroll down to "other reviews: 4 stars" you'll see my review. :) It's the second one I think.
