Giveaway! ARC of RED by Alison Cherry

Hey guys! It's been a hectic week, what with school and having a cold AND having a recent no-good, very-bad day...you know how that happens. Also, there was 9/11 and the sad post from Monday, so I'm in the mood for some cheering up.

So I'm giving away an ARC!

Alison Cherry is a lovely author I've had the chance to meet twice. First in Chicago at ALA, and then recently on a trip to NYC. Her book, RED, is releasing on October 8th!


Felicity St. John has it all—loyal best friends, a hot guy, and artistic talent. And she’s right on track to win the Miss Scarlet pageant. Her perfect life is possible because of just one thing: her long, wavy, coppery red hair.

Having red hair is all that matters in Scarletville. Redheads hold all the power—and everybody knows it. That’s why Felicity is scared down to her roots when she receives an anonymous note:

I know your secret.

Because Felicity is a big fake. Her hair color comes straight out of a bottle. And if anyone discovered the truth, she’d be a social outcast faster than she could say "strawberry blond." Her mother would disown her, her friends would shun her, and her boyfriend would dump her. And forget about winning that pageant crown and the prize money that comes with it—money that would allow her to fulfill her dream of going to art school.

Felicity isn’t about to let someone blackmail her life away. But just how far is she willing to go to protect her red cred?


And in case you're wondering, YES, her name is Alison CHERRY. And YES, she has red hair! Here's the evidence:


Her book is whimsical and so entertaining! I read it almost in one sitting. It's available for preorder on Amazon, IndieBound, and Barnes and Noble. :)

I hope your week gets better, Lydia. It sounds like it's been a bit of a rough go. Very bad days and colds are the worst. :( Thank you for doing this giveaway. This book sounds great.

Love the cover!

Entered with a comment, but I'm actually not even sure if I can enter, since I'm from South Africa. Didn't realize it wasn't an e-arc until later.

Whoops!

Catherine Stine said...

The premise is such a hoot! And hey, how cool that the author has red hair too.
