MY VERY FIRST GIVEAWAY!!! (every follower that enters means $1 towards charity!)

You may have read my review for this book, so I thought it would be a good idea to have a contest for one of my readers to win this book!  The book will be ordered from The Book Depository so it is open to EVERYONE!

And the MOST IMPORTANT THING!  Every single   follower that enters my family will be donated $1 to an amazing charity that was started by Molly who is 10.  We have a lot in common, we both have siblings adopted from Ethiopia!  She has started H2O for Ethiopia and she is raising money to purchase a clean water well.  She needs to raise $8000 and is very close to her goal!  So when you enter my contest you can feel good that your entry is putting a dollar towards Molly's goal!   If you would like to donate, or purchase  some of the cool stuff that Molly's charity has up for sale to raise money, you can visit her Facebook Page H2O for Ethiopia as well!

Here are the rules:
  • You must be a follower to enter into the contest,

I absolutely LOVE this book! It is about Nikki, a Middle school student, who gets a little too busy for her liking. Mackenzie is Nikki's Enemy.She was chair person until she decided to quit, just to make Nikki cancel the dance so the school will hate her. She has to set up the dance with only six people, her, her two friends, Chole and Zoey, Vilot, Theodore, and Jenny. During the dance, Nikki also has to work at her little sister's ballet party (in a rat suit), be at the dance with her crush (in her Juliette costume), and hang out with her friends, Chole and Zoey (in a trash bag costume) all at the same time! She is very stressed and WAY too busy, read the book how she handles it with a sense of humer.

This book is great, but it says "But I just said it in my head so no one else heard it but me." alot.
 I give this book:
4/5 Blabbies.
