Romance is in the Air Giveaway Hop

Even though this year, I will be celebrating "Singles Awareness Day" with a good book and a few bottles glasses of wine rather than smooching on a valentine, I want to share the romance with my readers. That's why Book Jems is happily participating in the Romance is in the Air Giveaway Hop hosted by Kathy from I Am A Reader, Not A Writer and Rachael Anderson.

What can you win, you ask?
Why, I have an extra signed copy of THE MOON AND MORE by Sarah Dessen, that I am more than willing to share with one lucky follower.

THE MOON AND MORE by Sarah Dessen
The blurb as seen on Goodreads:
Release Date: June 4, 2013
Publisher: Viking Juvenile
435 Pages

Luke is the perfect boyfriend: handsome, kind, fun. He and Emaline have been together all through high school in Colby, the beach town where they both grew up. But now, in the summer before college, Emaline wonders if perfect is good enough.

Enter Theo, a super-ambitious outsider, a New Yorker assisting on a documentary film about a reclusive local artist. Theo's sophisticated, exciting, and, best of all, he thinks Emaline is much too smart for Colby.

Emaline's mostly-absentee father, too, thinks Emaline should have a bigger life, and he's convinced that an Ivy League education is the only route to realizing her potential. Emaline is attracted to the bright future that Theo and her father promise. But she also clings to the deep roots of her loving mother, stepfather, and sisters. Can she ignore the pull of the happily familiar world of Colby?

Emaline wants the moon and more, but how can she balance where she comes from with where she's going?

Sarah Dessen's devoted fans will welcome this story of romance, yearning, and, finally, empowerment. It could only happen in the summer.
