Contest For Hold Still by Nina Lacour!

In celebration of Hold Still's release date ( which is today) Penguin has donated a copy of it to be given away here on Lauren's Crammed Bookshelf!


Here's the summary:

An arresting story about starting over after a friend’s suicide, from a breakthrough new voice in YA fiction.

dear caitlin, there are so many things that i want so badly to tell you but i just can’t.

Devastating, hopeful, hopeless, playful . . . in words and illustrations, Ingrid left behind a painful farewell in her journal for Caitlin. Now Caitlin is left alone, by loss and by choice, struggling to find renewed hope in the wake of her best friend’s suicide. With the help of family and newfound friends, Caitlin will encounter first love, broaden her horizons, and start to realize that true friendship didn’t die with Ingrid. And the journal which once seemed only to chronicle Ingrid’s descent into depression, becomes the tool by which Caitlin once again reaches out to all those who loved Ingrid—and Caitlin herself.

Interested yet? Well, you should be this book is amazing!

    I think that its kinda cool that she taught in a juvenile hall. That was pretty interesting, and that her first job was at 14.

  14. Hi :)
    I hadn't heard of HOLD STILL before.
    I went to Nina's site. I found out she is not on Twitter.
    :(
    I love the cover for Forgive My Fins you have here.
    :)
    All the best,
