Plastic Polly Releases Today (with a 2-book Giveaway)

Today Plastic Polly releases out into the world! It’s my sophomore novel, which makes me think of my sophomore year of high school, which inevitably reminds me of all the time I spent driving around in my friend’s car listening to Nirvana, but that’s another story…

It’s a surreal feeling to walk into a bookstore and find not one, but TWO books with my name on the shelves. It’s a blessing, and not one that I take for granted.

Plastic Polly and Seeing Cinderella Book Giveaway by Jenny LundquistI plan to celebrate with friends and family this weekend at the launch party, but for today, I’m offering up a copy of Plastic Polly AND Seeing Cinderella to one lucky winner.

The Giveaway: I like to keep things simple, so to enter just drop a comment below telling me something you remember from your sophomore year in high school (or whatever school memory you’d like to share if you haven’t reached the tenth grade yet). The giveaway closes at midnight on Tuesday, March 26th, and I’ll announce the winner on Wednesday, March 27th.

Thank you everyone for your encouragement and friendship. I definitely worked hard to write this book, but I couldn’t do this without the love and support of so many. Sincere thanks everyone.

    I actually got to go to Disney World my sophomore year of high school. It was really fun. Wish I could go back now! But, alas, I don’t have enough money for that.

    During my sophomore year of high school, I dated a varsity football player! I even got to wear one of his jerseys. That was really cool, considering I wasn’t even a cheerleader.

  3. Congratulations Jenny. What a fantastic accomplishment! Welcome to the world, Plastic Polly.

  4. So excited for you and Polly! And as for my sophomore year, well, that was the year I won the big booger contest at cheer camp. Yes, I’m classy.

    The meaning of this word “sophomore” made me to remember that my sophomore year was when I go to Greece with my schoolmates on vacation.

    Ahh, sophomore year. Not a particularly memorable year, but I do remember that I shared a locker with my brother who was a senior. I didn’t realize until much later though how unusual this was, not just because he was my brother and a senior, but because we traveled in different circles, he in the more popular in crowd and me in the quiet, academic crowd. I am grateful to this day that my brother wasn’t ashamed to be seen with me. πŸ™‚

    Big time congrats on the release of Plastic Polly and thanks for this wonderful giveaway!
    My high school started with 10th grade so that’s the year I adjusted to a new school and probably the first thing I did was get to know the library πŸ™‚
    I think I also fell inlove with my English classes in high school and that’s the major I chose for college, very interesting to realize that now πŸ™‚
    Hugs and blessings, Kara

    Congrats Jenny!! Sophomore year was my first time on the set crew for the spring musical. Because I was just as strange then as I am now, I painted a series of tiny turtles, too small to be seen from the audience, onto all the sets and props. For some reason I liked painting turtles back then…

  9. Kate says:

    Congrats! I can’t wait to get my hands on it, and then maybe I’ll share it with my daughter (but I’ve got first dibs)!!!!

    The sound of metal on metal, two helmets colliding, still rings in my ears today. Yes, I tried out for the football team in my Sophomore year of high school and I learned two things: 1) how to warm the bench, and 2) how to warm the bench πŸ˜‰

    Congratulations on another great accomplishment, Jenny! We are so proud of you and we wish you & Plastic Polly great success! We’ll be going to the bookstore today or tomorrow to find your book, since it wasn’t on the shelves this past weekend.

    Sophomore year…crummy is the word that comes to mind when remembering 10th grade; I had to take algebra AGAIN and my stepmom & dad had a yard sale on my birthday, although that’s also the year I had a fantastic English teacher who inspired me to be a high school teacher who connects with students πŸ™‚

  12. Khue V. says:

    I’m only a middle school students but my favorite memory was in fifth grade. It was just one week before the trip my best friend and I waited for so long, science camp. Unfortunately, we got in to a fight so we didn’t want to be science camp buddy like we planned. In the end, our teacher matched us to be science camp buddy and thanks to her we made up! We both have a fantastic at science camp and I experienced what it feels like to almost lose my best friend! πŸ™‚ Congratulation on your new book, I loved Seeing Cinderella. πŸ™‚

    Congratulations!
    10th grade was the first year I was able to go to the Bonfire Dance! I giant bonfire, our Spartan mascot (Mikey Barone) riding around it on a horse, and the opposing team’s mascot burned in effigy. Just like in “Grease.” SO cool! I was so excited to go and had a great time! The song “Jack & Diane” sticks out in my head from that dance. What wonderful memories!

    Congrats!!
    I’m in the 10th grade and I love it!! A few weeks ago we had set a crew for artists, it was cool because we shared our works and ideas. Also we had the chance to paint on a different “paper”, I mean we paint for free face and body, the kids were so happy about this!!

  15. Congratulations!
    10th grade i wet to Healdsburg High…I was too shy to play sports but I was asked to be the jr varsity score keeper. I got to go to all the away games and travel with the team. I had a fun time. Then I moved to Santa Rosa to foster home. New life and family.
