Entering the contest is easy-peasy! Simply tell me why you want the ARC in the comment section of this blog. Dying to read? Need liner for the bird cage? Planning to set up an alter and worship at the feet of all things cheese? Maybe your pet bear has been bugging you to buy him this book… I know mine has…

For additional entries, you can:

+1 for adding TOUCH to your TBR on goodreads
+1 for tweeting about the contest (make sure you @ me so I know you tweeted!)
+1 for blogging about the contest (Link in the comment section)
+1 for facebook fan page like
+1 for subscribing to the Newsletter
+2 for other unique ways of spreading the word. This includes (but is not limited to) body art, sky writing, and training parrots to speak in verse about the contest.

All entries will be put on a list and the winner chosen using a random number generator. Be sure to leave your email address and what you did so I can calculate entries correctly. Be sure to leave your email!

    Jus, Good Luck with your release, Marian

  2. I want one because every time I win a book, ARCs especially, I feel superior to the rest of the world. It’s a pretty good feeling.


    I entered on Goodreads as Ashley Christiano


  3. Rfirasek says:

    Woot! I can’t wait to read this book!!! Don’t enter me, I want to buy it. The cover is of course amazing, and I so want to read about our little skater girl. She reminds me of my daughter. So cool. Congrats, Jus! Rock on!!!

  4. Vicky Burkholder says:

    I’d love to win! It sounds like a great book – and on the upside, I write reviews for Goodreads, my site (http://crystalClearReviews.wordpress.com) and am the person in charge of recommending YA books at the bookstore (www.aaronsbooksonline.com) where I work – a win-win situation all around. 🙂

    I’d love to read it before its available!  So I can tell specific friends what parts to look for in the story, and of course I’ll buy one for each bibliophile on my Yule list!  I’m having technical difficulties getting it together, it’s still early so =/

    Great contest! I subscribed to your newsletter +1

  17. Why do I want the ARC? Because it looks freaking awesome!! And one of my goodreads buddies recommended it wholeheartedly (and that’s rare). It reminds me a little of Kyle XY which was way awesome until it got canceled, and I’d love to read a YA novel with a similar evil company, special kid vibe.

    Looks like such a good book! Hmm reasons why I want it…other than I just love to read 
    😀 It sounds different from a lot of other books. I’ve been getting a bit burned out on YA lately but this one intrigues me, sounds different, makes me want to bump it to the top of my TBR pile 😀 And it has a gorgeous cover! And I’m always looking for new books to highlight on my blog and the Operation Awesome blog 😀

  36. Caitlin says:

    I would love to read this book. First, Kale on the cover is very good looking. Just that makes getting this book worthwhile lol. Second, Deznee takes him home to piss off her father that’s crazy and totally funny. That alone makes me like her and she would be a great character to read. Add in the fact that Kale and Dez are both special and yes I would love to read this book for sure.

  40. My friend read Touch on NetGalley and she CANNOT stop talking about how wonderful this book is. She’s already named it her favorite book of 2011. I trust her judgement and am now dying to get my hands on a copy. I would love to own an actual copy, and proudly display it on my bookcase! 🙂
