SIGNED BOOK GIVEAWAY - Chrysalis by Michel Prince

Enter to win a signed copy of Chrysalis or one of two gift cards.

Chrysalis YA romance
Original Review by Mommy and We

I recently read "Chrysalis" by Michele Prince.

While it is a YA Paranormal Romance, it is definitely not for the younger YA crowd. You wouldn't want your 12-14 year old daughter reading it. While there's no actual intercourse, there's LOTS of sexual overtones. Having said that, I would've loved it when I was in high school as much as I do now. Ellie could've been me in school with her poor self image. When she fell for Oscar, it reminded me of when I fell for my husband in high school. (There was even one person who flat asked him why me. Can you imagine??) Though Ellie and Oscar's relationship is bi-racial and he is the football star, there were so many parallels with our relationship! I LOVE it when I can put myself into a book. Chrysalis is well written and Michele knew exactly how to bring me in and make me keep reading. Definitely add it to your "To-Read" list this summer.

Overview:
In the annals of dysfunctional families, the Chisholm’s are working their way to the top. Drug abuse, an unwed mother with multiple fathers, and the questionable cash flow for the 'pretty one'. All this from a seemingly normal, two parent middle class family. But were the choices truly made of their free will? Bad choices are a Chisholm family trait, one that confounds the youngest child, Ellie, who's trying to separate herself by making smart decisions. And falling for Oscar Jeffreys, the hottest guy at school, would be number one on the list of Chisholm family disasters. Yet the crazy part is it’s not a one sided attraction. Somehow Ellie has caught Oscar Jeffreys’ eye. Sure she could see the barriers between them. Race, age, popularity. They were at opposite ends of the spectrum. But a demon set to destroy her family? She can't see that. Oscar provides security and acceptance Ellie never imagined she deserved. As the passion of first love grows, Ellie honestly believes she has a chance to beat the odds and live a happy, normal life. Then her world collapses around her. With the help of a guardian angel, Ellie learns of a world that has unknowingly surrounded her for years. And she'll have to find strength buried deep inside to save not only her future, but flush out and stop the demon in her midst. And Ellie will have to learn that sometimes the hardest lesson about growing up is accepting that you're worth more.
