I am giving away my ARC copy of Secret Daughter: A Mixed-Race Daughter and the Mom Who Gave Her Away by June Cross.

I really liked this book. Read my review here to see why.

The contest runs from today, March 20th, through Saturday, March 28th. The winner will be announced on Sunday, March 29th.

PLUS, if you are a loyal commenter on the blog, you'll love this: For every comment you have made within the last 100 comments (up until the time of this post) you will be entered to win. So, if you are a follower and made 4 comments out of the last 100, you will be automatically entered to win 5 times! Hey, it's the least I can do for my best readers!
