GOSSIP OF THE STARLINGS Giveaway

THIS GIVEAWAY IS
NOW OVER!
WINNERS WILL BE
ANNOUNCED SOON!

GOSSIP OF THE STARLINGS
BY
NINA DE GRAMONT

A GIVEAWAY

ABOUT THE BOOK:
In this poignant novel, de Gramont explores a loyal and destructive friendship between two girls at a New England prep school. Catherine Morrow, the book's relatable protagonist, can't believe her luck when Skye, the popular daughter of acclaimed senator Douglas Butterfield, befriends her. A symbol of idealistic American wholesomeness, Skye is quick to push the boundaries at the Esther Percy School, and soon she joins Catherine in a blur of drunken nights and cocaine binges. But as Catherine cleans up and focuses on school work and extracurricular activities, Skye spirals deeper into her addiction and has an affair with a teacher. Despite Catherine's efforts, she can't untangle herself from Skye's daring escapades, and soon the girls are again involved in dangerous situations. Though Catherine warns the reader of the story's tragic finale from the opening chapters, the ending still reverberates with heartbreak. De Gramont's coming-of-age story distinguishes itself with sincere prose and complex characters.

This sounds like another interesting book.

This sounds like another interesting book. Speaking of tragic endings, I just read a book where a homeless person threw a cat down a well and it struggled and struggled to get out and ended up drowing when it exhausted itself. Reading that bothered me more than anything I've read concerning people.

My posts seem to be showing up delayed so in case I've already posted a general comment, I am a follower/subscriber, too.

It's amazing how friendships with people can work out to badly. These two young women sound complex and intriguing; but at the same time, very sad! Please enter my name in your drawing. Many thanks..... Cindi

This sounds like a great book. I have decided that I am going to start spending more time on myself doing things things that I like to do and reading is one of them. I have read two books in three days and need some more good books to read.

There seem to be so many problems of young women in prep schools where parents can afford anything and will give their child whatever they want. Sometimes it is better to earn their way rather than be handed everything on a silver platter.
