Today is a good Monday. Mostly because I have no school. Anyway, school or not (not!) it's time for this week's Magic Monday. This was one of my most highly anticipated reads and I truly enjoyed it and hope that you all do too.

17 & Gone
Nova Ren Suma
Publisher: Dutton Books
Release Date: March 21, 2013
Before I discovered Abby, and soon the others–before a fundamental piece of who I am shifted to reveal itself inside me, like an iceberg rising up to show its true and monstrous size from the frigid depths of the sea–I'd been the girl Jamie fell for. Whoever that was. It wasn't so long ago, but she and I were different people now.

So, there you have it. The little teaser. This one happens to be one of my favorite quotes in the entire book, because it's so simple but so true. Not just in the book, but the whole idea of it rings true in life as well.

So, the rules are simple, read my Giveaways page because I am not an idiot and I can tell when you don't and then fill out the form to enter. Also, here's the .

Good luck, everyone, and happy reading this week. Love you people!
