Giveaway!

Author Angela Fristoe, over at Turning the Pages, is hosting a giveaway this month. By following my blog, you’ve already got a chance to win!

So with Danica McKellar starring on Dancing With The Stars, I began feeling a bit nostalgic. I loved watching The Wonder Years when I was growing up and the romance between Kevin Arnold and Winnie Cooper had me wishing for my own childhood romance 🙂 That Danica went on to become an author and math guru made her a even cooler in my dorky opinion.

In celebrating the re-emergence of Danica McKellar, I’ve joined together with a few other YA authors to host a giveaway! Two lucky winners will receive a paperback copy of Kiss My Math by Danica McKellar! The giveaway begins today and continues until Danica wins or is eliminated from Dancing With the Stars.

From the author of the runaway bestseller Math Doesn?t Suck, the next step in the math curriculum– pre-Algebra.

Last year, actress and math genius Danica McKellar made waves nationwide, challenging the “math nerd” stereotype and giving girls the tools to ace tests and homework in her unique just-us-girls style. Now, in Kiss My Math, McKellar empowers a new crop of girls, 7th to 9th graders, taking on the next level of mathematics: pre-Algebra.

Stepping up not only the math, but also the sass and style, Kiss My Math will help math-phobic teenagers everywhere chill out about math, and finally “get” negative numbers, variables, absolute values, exponents, and more. Each chapter features:

– Step-by-step instruction
– Time-saving tips and tricks
– Illuminating practice problems with detailed solutions
– Real-world examples

– True stories from Danica’s own life as a student and actress

Kiss My Math also includes more fun extras–including personality quizzes, reader polls, and real-life testimonials– ultimately revealing why pre-Algebra is easier, more relevant, and more glamorous than girls think.

There are multiple ways to enter including the option to tweet daily. The listed end date is subject to change and winner will be announced within 48 hours of Danica’s win or elimination from DWTS.
