Contest: Put Twenty Boy Summer on the Map!

Twenty Boy Summer has escaped from its boxes before the official June 1 release date and has already been spotted in the wild at a bookstore near Buffalo, NY. Author Sarah Ockler is hosting a contest to track sightings of TBS all over the country. Now through June 30, if you spot her book in a bookstore or library, you can enter to win a cool TBS Beach Prize Pack!


1. Take a picture or video of Twenty Boy Summer on the shelves in the store, kiosk, or library

2. Email it with your first name, store/library name, and the city and state where it was taken to sarah (dot) ockler (at) gmail (dot) com with the subject "TBS Map Contest"

3. For an extra entry, take a picture or video of the book with YOU init, holding it or pointing at it or singing to it or doing some other creative (but not illegal) thing :-)

Pics and videos will be posted at SarahOckler.com along with a Googlemap showing all of the places Twenty Boy Summer has been spotted inthe wild. The more times you find and document TBS in different storesand libraries, the more times you can enter!

The contest is open to U.S. residents only. Participants under age 13 must have a parent/guardian enter for them. Sarah will randomly select a winning entry from all of the entries on July 1 and will notify the winner by email.

Good luck and happy book hunting!

Oooh! I *think* I just saw this at my local Target last night. I'll have to run back and make sure!

I just picked up my copy of Twenty Boy Summer from Barnes and Noble in Greece, NY. I was so excited to find it. Thanks for giving the heads up that a few stores had it out already so I could keep my eyes open!
