You are a new author for me and would love to win and read this book. I am always looking for new books and authors to read. I read about 4 to 6 books a week and most authors only maybe put out a book a years, so always looking for something new. I have seen this book advertised before and thought it looked great. I love the cover with the girl floating and the maze below her. Thanks for the giveaway and the chance to win.

The adolescents in my class need inspiration and courage. "Six Weeks" is a rich novel in which to discover them.
