2) You can leave a comment to this post asking to be entered and giving the reason why this book sounds interesting to you.

The winner will be randomly selected. I'll announce the winner at noon (Central Time, Daylight Savings Time) on August 13th on this blog. If you entered using twitter, I'll send you a @ or DM telling you of your win and asking where to send the book. If you entered using the blog comments, you'll need to leave your e-mail address or check back to see if you won so you can e-mail me your shipping address.

I hope everyone has fun with this!

This looks great! I love the idea of Spanish words thrown in, and women that don't jump into bed at every opportunity!

I would like to be entered, thank you!
I have been interested in quincea├▒eras for the last several years. I enjoy learning about cultural traditions, and would love to read something that includes it (not to mention that books about women learning lessons about being strong always teaches me at least one tidbit to help me on my own journey)

I would like to be entered because I am always fascinated reading about strong women from other cultures and how that strength is expressed within cultural limitations.

This book got placed on my BIWR list a few days ago. I'm trying to diversify my reading. That's one of the reasons I want to read it. Plus, the synopsis sounded really nice. Is the book funny? I've been waiting a while for one of those.

First, are you asking to be entered in the giveaway or are you simply needing questions answered?

Second, yes, the book is humorous, but it's not a comedy. The "narrator voice" pulls out the humor in the situation even though what's happening is often serious.

Hope this helped.

Everyone has family issues so a book one can relate to from time to time is appealing. As is the reverse and wanting to read something completely different. But it depends on the moment and it sounds good.

I think it is always nice to read books that may be from a different ethnic perspective but still cover a universal topic. Please enter me. Sounds great!
