Giveaway: Balance by Jean Stringam

By Bianca Schulze, The Children’s Book Review
Published: November 2, 2011

Twelve-year-old Adele Walker enters the crucible of adolescence longing for elegance and deploring her family’s lack of it.  When her ideals of a perfect life collapse, Adele withdraws into silence toward her parents and accepts the advice of a shadowy internet friend.  Adele’s in trouble, and who even knows about it? Five (5) lucky readers have the chance to win a copy. Giveaway begins November 2, 2011, at 12:01 A.M. PST and ends November 30, 2011, at 11:59 P.M. PST.

Reading level: Ages 10-14

Paperback: 245 pages

Book overview: Twelve-year-old Adele’s life is elegant and refined, aside from her five noisy siblings, her unfeeling parents, and the fact that she’s the last person at school – including the kindergartners – without a cell phone. Can she learn to balance her perfectly proper dream life with her real-life family? Fresh and alluring prose makes this follow-up to The Hoarders a delightful read that’s sure to stick with you long after the last page.

Giveaway is closed.

Thank you to everyone who entered!
