Special Announcement - Twenty Boy Summer

We interrupt this blog to bring you a very special announcement from Sarah Ockler, author of Twenty Boy Summer.
"June 1 is the official TBS release date, but... it escaped early!  Amazon and started shipping out copies today, and tonight I got word of the first official TBS in-store sighting at a Barnes & Noble in my area. It's all very exciting and nerve-wracking and freak-out inducing, but in a good way!"

In honor of the release, Sarah is holding an AWESOME contest!

Contest: Put Twenty Boy Summer on the Map!

Twenty Boy Summer has escaped from its boxes before the official June 1 release date and has already been spotted in the wild at a bookstore near Buffalo, NY. Author Sarah Ockler is hosting a contest to track sightings of TBS all over the country. Now through June 30, if you spot her book in a bookstore or library, you can enter to win a cool TBS Beach Prize Pack!


1. Take a picture or video of Twenty Boy Summer on the shelves in the store, kiosk, or library
2. Email it with your first name, store/library name, and the city and state where it was taken to sarah (dot) ockler (at) gmail (dot) com with the subject "TBS Map Contest"
3. For an extra entry, take a picture or video of the book with YOU in it, holding it or pointing at it or singing to it or doing some other creative (but not illegal) thing :-)

Pics and videos will be posted at along with a Google map showing all of the places Twenty Boy Summer has been spotted in the wild. The more times you find and document TBS in different stores and libraries, the more times you can enter!

The contest is open to U.S. residents only. Participants under age 13 must have a parent/guardian enter for them. Sarah will randomly select a winning entry from all of the entries on July 1 and will notify the winner by email.

Good luck and happy book hunting!
