In My Mailbox 6

In My Mailbox was started by The Story Siren and inspired by Alea of Pop Culture Junkie. None of these books were or ever will be in my mailbox, but whatever.

Peace, Love & Baby Ducks by Lauren Myracle
Pub. date: May 09
"Growing up in a world of wealth and pastel-tinted entitlement, fifteen-year-old Carly has always relied on the constancy—and authenticity—of her sister, Anna. But when fourteen-year-old Anna turns plastic-perfect-pretty over the course of a single summer, everything starts to change. And there are boys involved, complicating things as boys always do. With warmth, insight, and an unparalleled gift for finding humor even in stormy situations, beloved author Lauren Myracle dives into the tumultuous waters of sisterhood and shows that even very different sisters can learn to help each other stay afloat."
I spent about twenty minutes looking at all the shiny new books in Barnes & Noble, trying to decide on one of the many things from my wish list that I so desperately needed to read. Then, while browsing the YA books on one of the display tables, I saw it. Peace, Love & Baby Ducks with a shiny gold sticker that said "signed copy". I had heard about these-- magical books that the author signed and sent out into the world, and I had found one. It was like the golden ticket in a Wonka chocolate bar. Because I'm extremely indecisive, I browsed a little more before realizing that I would regret not buying that signed book, having never gotten a signed book before. So I got it. Yay!!!
I was going to post a picture of the signature, but my camera is dead so no such luck.

Well, that's what I got, what about you?

Eclectically yours,
