Laurie Halse Anderson is one of my very favorite YA authors. She's probably best known for her novel, Speak, about a girl who starts high school and finds herself losing her voice due to the violence she experienced over the summer. But Anderson's other books are fantastic as well. (I just read Twisted, which I think would be great for teen male readers.)
Her new book, Wintergirls, will be released on March 19. To celebrate, Anderson's giving away a Wintergirls laptop skin.
My laptop is looking kind of shady, so I could definitely use this. Plus, people would ask me about the book and I'd get to talk about YA lit. Everybody wins!
