Giveaway: The Butterfly Clues by Kate Ellison

Thanks to the lovely people at Paper Lantern Lit, I have ONE SIGNED hardcover copy of The Butterfly Clues by Kate Ellison to giveaway!

About the book:
Penelope (Lo) Marin has always loved to collect beautiful things. Her dad's consulting job means she's grown up moving from one rundown city to the next, and she's learned to cope by collecting (sometimes even stealing) quirky trinkets and souvenirs in each new place--possessions that allow her to feel at least some semblance of home.

But in the year since her brother Oren's death, Lo's hoarding has blossomed into a full-blown, potentially dangerous obsession. She discovers a beautiful, antique butterfly pendant during a routine scour at a weekend flea market, and recognizes it as having been stolen from the home of a recently murdered girl known only as "Sapphire" – a girl just a few years older than Lo. As usual when Lo begins to obsess over something, she can't get the murder out of her mind.

As she attempts to piece together the mysterious "butterfly clues," with the unlikely help of a street artist named Flynt, Lo quickly finds herself caught up in a seedy, violent underworld much closer to home than she ever imagined--a world, she'll ultimately discover, that could hold the key to her brother's tragic death.

  2. My favorite souvenir is a St Louis Cardinals t-shirt. I bought it at the team store at Busch Stadium. It was the only one I liked. I should have looked at the price tag before they rung it up. It was $70. I wear it quite often and will probably be buried in it.

  4. When I was younger, I used to collect those little models of cottages, the small ones that sit comfortably in your hand. I have loads of them in my room at home, I just love how detailed they are and so small.

  8. When my son was in the fifth grade, he and his class went to Washington D.C. on a field-trip. He brought me a small ceramic Panda as a souvenier. That Panda is very dear to me and has brought a smile tp my face each time I see it(and has for the last thirty years!).

  31. I studied abroad in Australia last spring and I guess my favorite "trinket" is that I can still feel the Australian sunshine on my back. I took daily walks just to explore the city I lived in and that is what I remember most. Another favorite "trinket" is a picture of me skydiving. I went to New Zealand for my birthday and I went skydiving as a treat. It was an intense, crazy feeling but i will always cherish those pictures :)

  33. Haha, I remember my odd childhood. I used to collect rocks. Boring one's, shiny one's, poop-like one's. Then I gained some wits and started collecting sugar packets. I'd take a Splenda or Sweet & Low from any new restaurant I eat in. Now, I'm all about the books. ;)
