So, recently I received some pretty exciting stuff in the mail…
That’s right, I now have ARC’s (Advance Reviewer Copies) and book marks for Plastic Polly! And, because Halloween is Polly’s favorite holiday, I’ve decided to giveaway an ARC and some book marks to celebrate!
There are several passages I love in this book, but this is probably one of my favorites:
Halloween is my favorite holiday. Not because of the candy, or because I like spiders and blood and guts and stuff. (Gross!) Nope, I like Halloween because it’s the one night in the year when I can pretend to be anyone I want and no one can call me fake.
Last year I dressed up as a butterfly. I had shiny, sparkly wings and a glittery face mask. Everyone liked my costume, except for Brooklyn Jones, who said it was “pretty, but kind of immature.” So this year I wanted to pick out a costume that said, Now here’s a girl who’s mature and sophisticated. Here’s a girl who’s in control and worth talking to. So I decided to be…(pg 157)
To enter the giveaway: Leave a comment below with your best guess at Polly’s Halloween costume. In the event that no one guesses correctly, I’ll select a winner via a Random Number Generator. If more than one person picks the correct costume, I’ll select one of them via a Random Number Generator (sorry, ARC’s are limited).
But wait folks, there’s more! The winner will also receive a copy of D is For Drama by Jo Whittemore, my pub sister.
So to recap: Leave a comment below with your best guess at Polly’s Halloween costume this year. The contest runs from today and ends on Friday, October 19 at midnight. I’ll announce the winner on Saturday, October 20.
Got that? Okay… On your mark, get set…GO!

I love the cover of this book and those bookmarks are adorable! I think Polly wants to be a Kardashian. Doesn’t everybody! 😉
Looks like a book my big girl would love! Maybe she’s a Barbie this year? Thank you!
This looks like a great book and I love the cheery cover. How fun to see your name in print, Jenny. I think Polly dressed up as a mom!
Just got caught up on your blog on a slow work day. The sad part is that I have read your book and I don’t remember what she was for Halloween. My short term memory is awful!
I think she dresses up as Secretary of State. Or better yet, the first female U.S. President!
This sounds like a great book for middle graders. I love the cover, too! My guess is that Polly dresses up like college student – a girl who is (at least to Polly) mature and in control. Thanks for the giveaway!
I think that Plastic Polly is going to be a teacher for Halloween! I hope I win, Seeing Cinderella is my favorite book & I own nearly 500 books! YOur book even beat out The Trumpet of the Swan, which used to be my favorite! I can’t wait for your next book, March is too far away!
I am so excited that I have an almost 11 year old daughter that gets to read your books!
I think Polly dresses up as an Airline Pilot………
Think I am going to read them too!!!
an angel. great book
