I was lucky enough to get an advance reader's copy of Hilary Weisman Graham's book REUNITED.

Alice, Summer, and Tiernan are ex-best friends.

Back in middle school, the three girls were inseparable. They were also the number one fans of the rock band Level3.

But when the band broke up, so did their friendship. Summer ran with the popular crowd, Tiernan was a rebellious wild-child, and Alice spent high school with her nose buried in books.

Now, just as the girls are about to graduate, Level3 announces a one-time-only reunion show.

Even though the concert’s 2000 miles away, Alice buys three tickets on impulse. And as it turns out, Summer and Tiernan have their own reasons for wanting to get out of town. Good thing Alice’s graduation gift (a pea-green 1976 VW camper van known as the Pea Pod) is just the vehicle to get them there.

But on the long drive cross-country, the girls hit more than a few bumps in the road. Will their friendship get an encore or is the show really over?

I can't tell you enough how much I loved it!  I'm a huge fan of THE SISTERHOOD OF THE TRAVELING PANTS series, and while this book is totally different from those, it also reminded me a lot of it.  I think it had to do with the travel aspect and the friendship between the three main characters.  It's told in the three different voices of the girls, and I really liked getting into each of their heads.

The book came out a month ago, but I want to pass my copy on to you, since I plan to buy some hardback copies for my classroom (paperbacks just don't last!).

I'll choose a winner on Saturday (July 28), so you have until midnight on Friday (July 29) to enter.  Just fill out the form below.

P.S.  Check out Hilary's webpage...it's so cute (especially her blog!)

Ooo, I've seen this one floating around on the interwebs, and it looks great! I'm glad to hear it lives up. Thanks for the giveaway opportunity, Rachele.
