If reading this week’s interview with Lili Wilkinson made you want to pick up a copy of her new book Pink, you’re in luck! We’re giving away a copy to one lucky winner. To enter to win, just comment on this post before midnight on Thursday, March 24, EST; we’ll announce the winner the next day. Through next Wednesday, you can also read her essay from the Smart Pop anthology on Scott Westerfeld’s Uglies series, Mind-Rain, for free here.

Book Description

Ava has a secret. She is tired of her ultracool attitude, ultra-radical politics, and ultrablack clothing. She’s ready to try something new–she’s even ready to be someone new. Someone who fits in, someone with a gorgeous boyfriend, someone who wears pink.

Transferring to Billy Hughes School for Academic Excellence is the perfect chance to try on a new identity. But just in case things don’t work out, Ava is hiding her new interests from her parents, and especially from her old girlfriend.

Secrets have a way of being hard to keep, though, and Ava finds that changing herself is more complicated than changing her wardrobe. Even getting involved in the school musical raises issues she never imagined. As she faces surprising choices and unforeseen consequences, Ava wonders if she will ever figure out who she really wants to be.

Humor, heart, and the joys of drama–on- and offstage–combine in Ava’s delight-fully colorful journey of self-discovery.

    I’d love to read this. Thanks for the contest!

    Sounds interesting, I like the concept. I have read similar ‘make over’ style stories in the past where someone trys to change who they are, but this is more extreme than they normally are. Can’t wait to read it

    I have to say that finding your site & following you (and @smartpopbooks) on Twitter has been the best way I’ve been able to share great reads with my high-school students! I have a hard time keeping up with the newest & latest great books in young adult lit., but you make it so easy! Thanks so much! Plus I LOVE your giveaways & so do my students! :)

    I really love this cover. I’ve seen it around the blogosphere, but never read an actual summary of the book. Now the dual lipstick makes complete sense. I love how subtly it shows Ava’s change.

    Great giveaway! Thanks!

    I really love the whole concept of this book, as I’m trying to create a fair balance between the type of books that I read. And this would definitely fit into my summer reads. Or ya know, me being impatient that I am with reading, would probably gobble it up immediately. Great giveaway, thanks! :)
