The Contemps Challenge Winner-ME! New Books Coming Soon

I'm soooooooo excited right now!  I found out that I am the winner of The Contemps Challenge. That means I'm getting 21 new books - what's better than new books to read and bring into my classroom?!?  The Contemps is a group of 21 contemporary realistic fiction authors who got together and created a website to promote their books and the love of reading their genre. They had a contest to get people to take the challenge to read as many of their books as possible. When you accepted the challenge, you also were entered into the contest to win all of the books. I can't believe it, but I won!


Thanks so much to The Contemps: YA Authors Keeping It Real!  Visit their website for more information from all of the authors: The Contemps
