Patrin Book Giveaway

Tuesday, January 29, 2008

Today is Day Two of Inside The Character's Studio week at Teen Fiction Cafe. They're talking to gypsy ski jumper Leevi Patrin of The Finnish Line fame.

When Nordic ski jumper Maureen “Mo” Clark set foot in Finland, she breathed a sigh of relief. Finally, escape from her famous skier father’s shadow and a chance to jump in the renowned Lahti Ski Games. But Mo quickly realizes that balancing practice and classes is more challenging than she expected.

So when a gorgeous bad boy teammate offers coaching assistance—for a little publicity in return—how can she refuse? Surely she can work in a few extra practices somewhere between studying for calculus and sightseeing in Finland?

Amid snowmobiling and dog-sledding, ice hotels and Northern lights, Mo begins to discover what strength and perseverance—the Finnish sisu—is all about. Now it’s up to her to take that final jump and cross the finish line in style.
Follow this link to reply to the post and you could be randomly selected to win a copy of The Finnish Line along with a box of Finnish chocolate to enjoy it with.
