  1. I’d love to read this book this summer!!! I think it will make me smile, and we all need as many smiles as we can get. Thanks for hosting!


    • Hello Lisa!

      You’re the WINNER of Frog on a Dime’s “45 Pounds (More or Less)” giveaway!
      Congratulations and happy reading to you! Please contact me via the Frog on a Dime contact page to let me know how you’d like your copy personalized by author K.A. Barson.


  2. I was thrilled to know Kelly even BEFORE she was a published YA author! So excited about her debut. Throwing my hat in the ring (or is it my name in the hat?) to win an autographed copy. Thanks, Vicky, for sponsoring this and for championing a fellow SCBWI’er. Your blog makes us all very “hoppy” indeed!


    • It is thrilling to see one of our talented and hardworking friends receives the success and recognition she deserves. Thank you for entering the drawing. I wish you good luck! Happy summering to you too!


  3. Kelly’s book is an awesome prize! Thanks, Vicky! I would love to have an autographed copy to first read, then share with my 3 daughters.


  4. Pick me! Pick me!
    (The last time I won a raffle was at age 8, when I won 4 tickets to the circus–and my mother made me use up 2 of those precious tickets on my siblings.)
    Kelly’s book is on my to-read list–so glad to read all the great press about it.


    • Wow. You are overdue for a win, Buffy! Thank you for entering and for your interest in Kelly’s book. I am certain you will enjoy it (whether you win it or purchase it). You may like it even better than the circus! Good luck to you!


    • Hi Natalie. I read your interview with Kelly and loved it. (In fact, I put a link to it in my blog post!) Kelly’s book is fantastic–no surprise. Thank you for helping readers know about her. You always do an excellent, excellent job!
