Off to Oz Giveaway Hop
Brighten up your back-to-school blues with fairy tales! In the Off to Oz giveaway, all participating blogs are offering giveaways of classic books, classic re-tellings, or time travel books. We're giving away five signed copies of one of our favorite books of all time: BREADCRUMBS by Anne Ursu, a re-telling of the Hans Christian Andersen fairy tale "The Snow Queen."
"Once upon a time, Hazel and Jack were best friends. But that was before he stopped talking to her and disappeared into the forest with a mysterious woman made of ice. Now it's up to Hazel to go in after him. Inspired by Hans Christian Andersen's "The Snow Queen," BREADCRUMBS is a stunningly original fairy tale of modern-day America, a dazzling ode to the power of fantasy, and a heartbreaking meditation on how growing up is as much a choice as it is something that happens to us."
