Nine years and about three moves ago, we were downsizing from a huge rambling rental house to essentially one bedroom. Not a one bedroom; one bedroom. In anticipation of a massive garage sale, I invited my two nieces, about 5 and 6 years old to come pick through my knick-knacks, jewelry and make up.
Freya, the older of the two agonized over her lone choice, putting back, picking up, debating, but Sonja was clutching great gobs of objects to her chest, mardi gras beads oozing out from between her fingers, barely pausing to look at it. When her big sister scolded her, Sonja said in the cutest of preschool voices, "But, but, Fweya, it's fwee!"
Bless her heart, who doesn't love FWEE STUFF? To this end, and in honor of the upcoming paperback release of CHOSEN this fall, I am putting together a little give-away to celebrate book clubs, full of oodles of swag.
