Gratitude Giveaway Hop


Book Nerd 
Gratitude Giveaway Hop
Hosted by Book Hounds



Natasha: I’m a girl who believes in science and facts. Not fate. Not destiny. Or dreams that will never come true. I’m definitely not the kind of girl who meets a cute boy on a crowded New York City street and falls in love with him. Not when my family is twelve hours away from being deported to Jamaica. Falling in love with him won’t be my story.

Daniel: I’ve always been the good son, the good student, living up to my parents’ high expectations. Never the poet. Or the dreamer. But when I see her, I forget about all that. Something about Natasha makes me think that fate has something much more extraordinary in store—for both of us.

The Universe: Every moment in our lives has brought us to this single moment. A million futures lie before us. Which one will come true?

  58. My most memorable was the year I worked at a residential treatment center for children aged 3-12. Some of the kids had parents and some did not. Each holiday the children were allowed to go home for one week with their parents. The children that did not have parents were allowed to go home with a staff person for a week at the staff person's home. I was allowed to take home a 10 year old boy, and we had a great time :)

  75. Definitely the first year I started cooking the turkey for my family. I was about 12, I think, and I pulled the bird out to baste it, when I looked down and saw the pot holder I was using had caught on fire. It must have brushed the oven coil as I was pulling the turkey out. I remember feeling strangely calm, as I took the few steps over to the kitchen sink, threw the pot holder down, and turned the faucet full bore on it. I think some people would have panicked, but my mom was surprised I hadn't.

  76. My most memorable Thanksgiving experience was in 2nd grade when I decided to boycott Thanksgiving because I realized that we were celebrating genocide.
