In My Mailbox (19)

In My Mailbox is a weekly meme created by Kristi at The Story Siren that gives readers the chance to share the books they bought/received/swapped/rented over the past week.

 City of Bones by Cassandra Clare

Okay, I am not posting any info on this one because I am feeling lazy.
Anywho, my hubby found this one for me at Goodwill. Yes, I am obsessed with GW! So, when talking to the hubs on the phone about it, I really wanted it for a giveaway, because, well, Mortal Instruments is the shit! But, when I got it into my hands, I noticed it was bigger, heavier, and looked a little different. Why?? Because it is a ARC! What?? In Green Bay, Wisconsin???
I know they say that they are not for sale, but we found it at GW without knowing what it was until we had it. 
So exited about it! So, sorry my fellow readers, this one is mine! I'll find another one for a giveaway someday. :D 

This Girl is Different by J. J. Johnson
Publication Date: April 1, 2011
Publisher: Peachtree
Pages: 320

Goodreads Synopsis

Evie is different. Not just her upbringing-though that's certainly been unusual-but also her mindset. She's smart, independent, confident, opinionated, and ready to take on a new challenge: The Institution of School.

It doesn't take this homeschooled kid long to discover that high school is a whole new world, and not in the way she expected. It's also a social minefield, and Evie finds herself confronting new problems at every turn, failing to follow or even understand the rules, and proposing solutions that aren't welcome or accepted.

Not one to sit idly by, Evie sets out to make changes. Big changes. The movement she starts takes off, but before she realizes what's happening, her plan spirals out of control, forcing her to come to terms with a world she is only just beginning to comprehend.

JJ Johnson's powerful debut novel will enthrall readers as it challenges assumptions about friendship, rules, boundaries, and power.

I can't wait to meet Evie. She sounds so powerful and interesting.

What is in your Mailbox??

That's so funny that you would find an ARC in Goodwill! Super awesome though! I've read this whole series, but I need to get my hands on it!
