A signed copy of THE PULL OF GRAVITY by Gae Polisner

Donated by: Gae Polisner

Shambling hordes, this is one heck of an awesome book. It's a road trip story, an Of Mice and Men companion, and an all around great tale. Am I gushing? Why YES. Yes, I am.

Prize details:
The winner will receive a signed hardcover of THE PULL OF GRAVITY by Gae Polisner.

About THE PULL OF GRAVITY:
While Nick Gardner’s family is falling apart, his best friend, Scooter, is dying from a freak disease. The Scoot’s final wish is that Nick and their quirky classmate, Jaycee Amato, deliver a prized first-edition copy of Of Mice and Men to the Scoot’s father. There’s just one problem: the Scoot’s father walked out years ago and hasn’t been heard from since. So, guided by Steinbeck’s life lessons, and with only the vaguest of plans, Nick and Jaycee set off to find him.

Characters you’ll want to become friends with and a narrative voice that sparkles with wit make this a truly original coming-of-age story.



About Gae Polisner:
Gae writes both women’s and young adult fiction. She's written since the time she was little. Mostly, poems and short stories through college. Then, she went to law school and, for over a decade, replaced all that creative writing with legal briefs. But after her sons were born, she decided to return to her first love. The Pull of Gravity has a special “secret” nod to the first novel she couldn’t put down – Don't Take Teddy, by Babbis Friis-Baastad. To this day, she remembers the feeling of frantically turning pages to find out if the brothers would be okay. If any of you ever read that book, please send her an email, and you can be instant BFF's.

Her first piece of women’s fiction, The Jetty, was a Top Semifinalist in the 2008 Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award. She lives and writes on Long Island with her two amazing boys, her handsome, smart husband who sings, and two very "enthusiastic" cockatiels, Taha and Bobo. When she's not writing, she's still a practicing family law attorney/mediator, and when she's not doing that, she's swimming, or reading in her hammock in the sun.

This item will close for bids on July 25th at 4 PM EST.
