The GIVE UP THE GHOST giveaway is now over. Thanks to everyone who participated! Keep an eye on the contest page for future giveaways!
It’s time for another GIVE UP THE GHOST giveaway! Open to everyone in the world.
What you could win:
What it’s all about
In GIVE UP THE GHOST, Cass is on a mission to expose her fellow students’ bad behavior. With the help of her ghostly friends, she catches kids lying, cheating, spreading rumors, vandalizing, stealing, and bullying both in school and online. And Cass herself has been the victim of rumors and bullying.
Those sorts of cruelties and crimes happen in the real world all the time. Did you ever do something you probably shouldn’t have, or find yourself a victim? Are you willing to expose those wrong-doings?
How to enter
Send your stories about junior high or high school misbehavior to secrets at megancrewe dot com by August 24th. It could be something not-so-nice you did, something not-so-nice someone did to you, or something you saw happen to someone else (a friend, classmate, teacher, etc.). For examples, check out the stories already posted!
Don’t worry–unlike Cass, I won’t reveal your secrets. All stories will be posted without name or contact information. I’ll separate your e-mail address from your story as soon as I get it and delete the messages, and even *I* won’t know which stories belong to the winners.
Make sure each story includes your age or grade at the time of the story (should take place during junior high or high school). Other than that, be as creative as you like! All the current examples are written stories, but there are lots of other options (just send me the file):
-create an image around your secret (a la PostSecret)
-draw a picture of what happened
-record an audio file of you telling your story
-make a video (without showing your face–cover it, do a slideshow with voice-over or text, it’s up to you!)
You can submit as many stories as you like–each story counts as one entry in the draw.
1. The grand prize is only available to those who present their secret in one of the more creative ways listed above. Those whose stories include an image, drawing, audio file, or video will be entered to win…

-A signed advance copy of GIVE UP THE GHOST

-A 10″ LED paper lantern (from the book: Get [Paige] interested, though, and she brightened up like a Chinese lantern.)
-A friendship bracelet (from the book: I’d kept thinking of Danielle as my real best friend. We had the extra four years between us, that back history of friendship bracelets and sleepovers and secret sharing.)
-A sticker set featuring the main characters of the novel
-A GIVE UP THE GHOST bookmark
-A GIVE UP THE GHOST button (not pictured, but I should have them by the time the contest is over)
