Published only this week by our friends at For Books’ Sake, [RE]Sisters: Stories of Rebel Girls, Revolution, Empowerment, and Escape has already come close to selling out its initial print run. No surprise there since it features stories by a surfeit of very hot literary chicks including Zoe Apostolides, Valerie Hunter, Emily Paull, our very own Lucy Middlemass and … um … well, me again.
For a chance to win one of three free paperback copies of [RE]Sisters, simply tell us — via the medium of socialtaggything — which literary character you wish was your sister. Oh, and clickylinkthing back to this page if you’d be so good.
You can do this on Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter with the hashtag #RESisters. Or you can spray it on a nearby wall. Include the short link: http://wp.me/p1Xg3R-Y5
The giveaway will close at midnight on Sunday 21st February.
Why should you bother entering? Well, because …
It’s a joy to find YA that portrays girls as a dizzying kaleidoscope of strength, vulnerability and potential… These gorgeously written tales are fiction with a truth at its core. Thrilling, delightful, searing, painful, gripping, remarkable stories.
An amazingly constructed collection. I honestly couldn’t put it down. Every single story is a wonderful piece of writing, which both stands alone and fits perfectly with this anthologies intentions. The women in these stories are powerful, admirable and rebellious; but not always in ways you might expect… (RE)Sisters is nothing short of a beautiful collection.
