I’m giving away:


The Transplant by Alexandra Ulysses

Published: November 6th 2012 by United Arts Media, llc, (I read it in 2013)
Format: Hardcover


The Transplant offers an insightful account of two young people living in United States illegally. Witty and tragic, it portrays their endless and fruitless pursuit of legalization. Agata, a young Polish au-pair who arrives in the United States in the late 1990’s, strives to maintain her legal status through hard work but, due to a fateful event, finds herself unable to do so. Faced with dangerous circumstances and few if any options, she flees from her host family only to find herself living and working illegally. Eventually she meets Mario. His single minded devotion to his ailing mother led him to risk his life and cross the border so that he could earn enough money to pay for the kidney transplant that would save her life. With the birth of their daughter Adriana and the need to ensure that their family stay intact, Agata and Mario become painfully aware of the need for legalization and attempt to gain legal status by any means.

And a random L. Ron Hubbard audioCD, released in 2013.

Again to enter, head on over to the rafflecopter, and be sure to check out the other blogs in the hop.
