Made in the USA Giveaway

Hello All. I don't have a book review ready for today so instead I am hosting a giveaway. Courtesy of Hachette I am giving away five copies of this book



BOOK INFORMATION:

The bestselling author of WHERE THE HEART IS returns with a heartrending tale of two children in search of a place to call home.Lutie McFee's history has taught her to avoid attachments...to people, to places, and to almost everything. With her mother long dead and her father long gone to find his fortune in Las Vegas, 15-year-old Lutie lives in the god-forsaken town of Spearfish, South Dakota with her twelve-year-old brother, Fate, and Floy Satterfield, the 300-pound ex-girlfriend of her father.While Lutie shoplifts for kicks, Fate spends most of his time reading, watching weird TV shows and worrying about global warming and the endangerment of pandas.

As if their life is not dismal enough, one day, while shopping in their local Wal-Mart, Floy keels over and the two motherless kids are suddenly faced with the choice of becoming wards of the state or hightailing it out of town in Floy's old Pontiac. Choosing the latter, they head off to Las Vegas in search of a father who has no known address, no phone number and, clearly, no interest in the kids he left behind.

MADE IN THE U.S.A. is the alternately heartbreaking and life-affirming story of two gutsy children who must discover how cruel, unfair and frightening the world is before they come to a place they can finally call home.* Includes a Reading Group Guide

I was going to say Bruce Springstein but when I scrolled to the end to add a comment, I see Wanda also feels the same way. LOL
So I'll say the freedom we have as a nation and the soldiers that fight for that freedom.

My favorite thing made in the USA is the "spirit" or "generosity" of the American people. I know that's not something made by hand, but I think it's made by the freedoms we have in our country and the hard work of the people here. Love my country!!
