“The Fault in Our Stars” Book Giveaway

Our books from Donors Choose arrived! Thanks again to our donors who gave through Donors Choose!

Donations  promote an Ontario Teen Read of the John Green novel The Fault in Our Stars. Twelve for each school, twenty-four altogether. They have been cataloged and are ready for checkout! At Colony High, the books are not showing on the city’s catalog, but they are here–this is so that COHS students can check them out before anyone from the Ovitt Library downtown puts a hold on them.

To get started with the Ontario Teen Read of  The Fault in Our Stars, I’ll also be giving away two copies of the book at each of my schools (Colony High and Chaffey High), so four copies altogether. These giveaway books were purchased with gift cards I received from Amazon after folks used the Colony and Chaffey Library Lady websites to order items from Amazon. (Thanks for doing that!)

If you’d like to win one of the books, here are the rules:

  • You must be a student at either Colony or Chaffey High School.
  • Click on the comments for this post and tell me what your favorite book is and why (no more than a paragraph, please).
  • Include your name, grade, and English teacher in your post. I will remove all but your first name before I accept your comment online. However, I need this info to get in touch with you if you win.
  • If only two people from each school answer, they win. If more than two answer, I’ll put the names in box and draw two winners at each school.

I love this book! And so does everyone else. The latest review I read in VOYA states, “Green’s much-anticipated novel is breathtaking in its ability to alternate between iridescent humor and raw tragedy.” They gave it a perfect score for readers–the ‘can’t image how this book could be better’ score. I agree!

I'm a high school librarian, formerly an English teacher. I love to read and my mission is to connect people with the right books. To that end, I read widely--from the hi-lo for reluctant high school readers to the literary adult novel for the bibliophile.
