I’m so pleased to be giving away two copies of Tinfoil Crowns, and not just because Erin is a member of Fug Nation! Let’s read the back, shall we?
Seventeen-year-old internet video star Fit is on a mission to become famous at all costs. She shares her life with her fans through countless videos (always sporting some elaborate tinfoil accessory), and they love her for it. If she goes viral, maybe she can get out of her small casino town and the cramped apartment she shares with her brother and grandpa. But there’s one thing Fit’s fans don’t know about her: when Fit was three years old, her mother, suffering from postpartum psychosis, tried to kill her.
Now Fit’s mother, River, has been released from prison. Fit is outraged that River is moving in with the family, and it’s not long before Fit’s video followers realize something’s up and uncover her tragic past. But Fit soon learns that the only thing her audience loves more than tragedy is a heartwarming tale of a family reunion. Is faking a relationship with River the key to all Fit’s dreams coming true?
THE TASK: We have one signed copy to give away. As usual, I’ll be picking the winner at random. To enter, please comment and tell us what, if anything, you regularly watch on YouTube. (I mostly fall into weird wormholes that are related to something else, rather than any YouTube programming — like last week I ended up watching Gwen Verdon clips for an hour.)
THE RULES: All entries must be posted in the comments of this post by 9 p.m. Pacific time on Friday. FYI, if this is the first time you’ve commented here, the system will automatically kick you into comment moderation, but don’t worry, I will rescue you. (Open to US readers only; all prizing courtesy of the author.)
