Thank you to everyone who entered the contest to win a copy of Ellen Hopkins’ book “Tricks.” While the story of her disinvitation to the Humble, Texas, Teen Lit Fest has been picked up by a few news outlets, I don’t know if anyone from Humble has contacted her – but I hope that the end result is that she is invited back. And if that’s not possible, I hope every teen in Humble reads her book and sends a review to both the librarian who protested Hopkins’ inclusion, and the superintendent who made the decision to rescind her invite.
The winners, drawn by random integer, are:
Please email me at sarahATsmartbitchestrashybooksDOTcom with your mailing address so I can get the book to you. Thank you for entering and I hope this story has a much happier ending than it does right now.
