Long before Chris Crutcher or Charlie Price were award winning, YA novelists, they were hippie teachers, wrangling kids at a "last chance" alternative school in Oakland, California. To celebrate their shady history and their new book releases, Chris and Charlie are asking three bloggers to help them give away a few books -- and inspire a few laughs at their expense.

Post a caption for one or all of three vintage 70s photos -- on the blogs or on Facebook -- and you'll be automatically entered to win a free signed copy of DEAD GIRL MOON by Charlie Price AND a free signed copy of PERIOD 8 by Chris Crutcher. Chris and Charlie will hand pick the winners, so let yourself go crazy. Funny is our mission. And with these classic images, how could you go wrong?

Must be 16 or older to enter. Contest closes on April 1, 2013. Prizes will be distributed by April 15. Three runner's up will win signed ARCs of Period 8, so if you're a collector of signed ARC's, try not to be TOO funny. If you have trouble posting your caption, send them to Kelly Milner Halls at
kellymilnerh@aol.com and she'll be sure you're safely entered. May the grooviest entries win!

Here's the picture.  Good luck!!!

[Charlie sings about Chris and plays guitar:]"Fare thee well, my own true hair; Fare thee well, my mustache; They will get too tangled when the wind blows free, For I am bound away to the sea, Mary Anne."
