Lisa McMann's bestselling WAKE is about a girl named Janie who falls into other people's dreams. No spoilers here, but the series is a ton of fun, and book 2, FADE, is out in February. Janie herself has big dreams--mainly she thinks about college--but she doesn't have the money to make her dreams come true.
In honor of the new release, Lisa and Simon & Schuster are hosting a FUND YOUR DREAM essay contest. The question they're asking readers ages 14-18 is:
What is the Greatest Obstacle You’ve Overcome?
Lisa will choose a winning 500-word essay, and the winner will receive $1000 toward meeting his or her life goals!
The contest is going on now, so click to read the full rules, and it ends on March 6th, 2009. Go for it, readergirlz!
