Let’s hear it for the girls

It’s rare to find either of my children without a book, and that makes a mama book nerd’s heart proud… except that as my daughter grows, it’s sometimes hard to find books that deal with young adults in a positive way.

Well, look what I was recently introduced to: The Miracle Girls series of books are Christian young adult fiction by Anne Dayton and May Vanderbilt, and they manage to deal with girls in high school without any naughty language or too-adult situations. In celebration of the 4th book in the series, Love Will Keep Us Together, we’re having ourselves a Miracle Girls giveaway!

One lucky grand prize winner will receive the entire set: The Miracle Girls, Breaking Up Is Hard to Do, A Little Help From My Friends, and of course the latest, Love Will Keep Us Together. In addition, four more lucky readers will receive just book four. That’s five winners in all, all of whom will be ready to tackle the teen years without storylines that make toes curl.

Want to win ’em? Of course you do! First, go review the Want Not contest rules and regulations, then come on back here and leave a comment on this post by 9:00 a.m. Eastern (that’s 5:00 a.m. Pacific) on Thursday, April 22nd, 2010 to be entered. Winners to be determined by random number generation and lip gloss color. (Isn’t lip gloss an essential part of a wholesome high school experience…? No?)

Ready? Go!
