A signed copy of XVI by Julia Karr

Donated by: Julia Karr

Some people find zombies scary, but I'm more frightened by dystopians that feel all too real. And XVI is one of those books that is overflowing with suspense but doesn't feature a single shambling corpse. A great choice for fans of dystopians like THE HUNGER GAMES and DIVERGENT. You're bidding on a signed copy!

Prize details:
The winner will receive a signed paperback of XVI by Julia Karr.

About XVI:

Nina Oberon's life is pretty normal: she hangs out with her best friend, Sandy, and their crew, goes to school, plays with her little sister, Dee. But Nina is 15. And like all girls she'll receive a Governing Council-ordered tattoo on her 16th birthday. XVI. Those three letters will be branded on her wrist, announcing to all the world-even the most predatory of men-that she is ready for sex. Considered easy prey by some, portrayed by the Media as sluts who ask for attacks, becoming a "sex-teen" is Nina's worst fear. That is, until right before her birthday, when Nina's mom is brutally attacked. With her dying breaths, she reveals to Nina a shocking truth about her past-one that destroys everything Nina thought she knew. Now, alone but for her sister, Nina must try to discover who she really is, all the while staying one step ahead of her mother's killer.

About Julia Karr:
Julia grew up in the small town of Seymour, Indiana and now lives about fifty miles from her hometown. When she was sixteen, she moved to Chicago to live with her mother. She fell in love with Chicago, and has never fallen out of it!

Julia has two lovely daughters, who are grown. They both live within five miles of her, and she likes that a lot! When they were little, she used to make up stories for them. That was when she first starting thinking about writing for children. But, it wasn’t until they were out of the house that she began to take my writing seriously.
