Book Review: Losing Elizabeth AND my first book giveaway!!!

I received a copy of the book Losing Elizabeth from the author Tanya J. Peterson. The book follows the story of Elizabeth as she enters into an abusive relationship with a popular athlete at her school, Brad. Throughout the novel she begins to forget the things she once loved: friends, sports and school work. The story also follows Elizabeth's best friend, Meg, as she struggles to get her friend back. The story talks about a lot of issues that young people face: friendships, relationships, identity, self-esteem and abuse.

I read the novel on a flight from Toronto to Regina. It is a really quick read. The story is very simple but still incredibly powerful and speaks to a lot of things that young people are starting to deal with. The characters are all very interesting and you can definitely relate to a lot of them at different times in the story. I think it would be a great book for schools to adopt.

A GIVEAWAY!

I have a giveaway this week as well for a copy of Tanya J. Peterson's Losing Elizabeth. To enter all you need to do is leave a comment on this post and tell me what book you are reading right now! The contest closes on August 1st and I will randomly draw a name from the entries.
