So now I have two paperback copies of On The Island. I read the e-book first and decided to get a paperback copy because I loved it that much. Found out later that day that Tracey was willing to send me a signed one. She then suggested I give away the non-signed paperback I bought earlier & I agree. It's brand new people. I haven't even cracked the spine to read it!
Yes, that's the giveaway copy above my signed copy :0)
It's such a lovely book. One of my favorites and I reviewed it as my first BotW pick. It's definitely a book you want to check out. If you've been living under a rock and have no idea about what book I'm talking about or maybe you're forgetful and need a refresher:
On the Island by Tracey Garvis Graves
Genre: Contemporary Romance
When thirty-year-old English teacher Anna Emerson is offered a job tutoring T.J. Callahan at his family's summer rental in the Maldives, she accepts without hesitation; a working vacation on a tropical island trumps the library any day.
T.J. Callahan has no desire to leave town, not that anyone asked him. He's almost seventeen and if having cancer wasn't bad enough, now he has to spend his first summer in remission with his family - and a stack of overdue assignments - instead of his friends.
Anna and T.J. are en route to join T.J.'s family in the Maldives when the pilot of their seaplane suffers a fatal heart attack and crash-lands in the Indian Ocean. Adrift in shark-infested waters, their life jackets keep them afloat until they make it to the shore of an uninhabited island. Now Anna and T.J. just want to survive and they must work together to obtain water, food, fire, and shelter. Their basic needs might be met but as the days turn to weeks, and then months, the castaways encounter plenty of other obstacles, including violent tropical storms, the many dangers lurking in the sea, and the possibility that T.J.'s cancer could return. As T.J. celebrates yet another birthday on the island, Anna begins to wonder if the biggest challenge of all might be living with a boy who is gradually becoming a man.
CA and US only. Sorry for the international people! I will be hosting an international giveaway soon so do check back!
Good luck everyone & to the future winner: Hope you enjoy/love the book as much as I do.
