GIVEAWAY: Tempo Change

Now that you've read my review of Tempo Change by Barbara Hall, I'd love to give you a chance to win your very own hardcover copy of the book!

If you need a reminder here is some information about the book:

Amazon.com:

It’s tough enough defining your identity—imagine if your father was a rock legend.

Blanche Kelly's dad is a famous indie rock icon, but not many people at the private school she attends on scholarship know this. Her father left when she was in the first grade, and she can’t quite forgive her mom for not understanding that an artist like her dad needs the time and space to connect to his muse.

When Blanche creates an all-girl rock band, their sound captures a wide audience and the band is invited to compete at the Coachella Music Festival. Blanche feels this could be the perfect time for a reunion with her father. Won’t he be proud to hear her band? Won’t he be happy to get to know his only daughter?

Author Barbara Hall sensitively explores the expectations between parents and teens, as well as the value of learning about your past to make your own future.

Onto the rules!

To win a hardcover copy of Tempo Change leave a comment sharing your song of this summer, title and artist and why!

For 1 additional entry post/blog about this giveaway and leave a separate comment telling me you have done so.

The giveaway is open to addresses within the U.S.

Please leave a way for me to contact you if you are the winner!

The giveaway will end July 20th at 11:59 pm Central Time.

  16. My summer song is Goodbye by Kristinia DeBarge. Because I was actually supposed to get married this Saturday, but the day my $6000 wedding dress showed up on my doorstep he decided "it just wasn't really working for him." I was crushed at first, but it turned out to be the best thing that's happened to me in a LONG TIME.

  45. My song of the summer is I'm Not Gonna Teach Your Boyfriend How to Dance With You by Black Kids. It's really catchy. One of my favorite things about it is the line "You are the girl that I've been dreaming of ever since I was a little girl." The song is sung by a guy. :P

  54. That is a hard question. I love Beyonce's Sweet Dreams. Another song I can't get enough of is The All-American Rejects' The Wind Blows. Then again, I really like Broken by Lifehouse. The last two are inspirational. Sweet Dreams is because of the music, it makes me want to dance.
