Margo Dill's Book and Contest

I planned to post this Monday night, but our power went out, again. I'll see you next week for Wordless Wednesday.

Busch Stadium by Phil

Great question! Margo's young adult novel, Caught Between Two Curses (Rocking Horse Publishing, March 2014), is the story of 17-year-old Julie Nigelson, who is cursed. So is her entire family. And it’s not just any-old-regular curse, either—it’s strangely connected to the famous “Curse of the Billy Goat” on the Chicago Cubs, hence the All-Star baseball week celebration.

Julie must figure out this mystery while her uncle lies in a coma and her entire love life is in ruins: her boyfriend Gus is pressuring her to have sex, while her best friend Matt is growing more attractive to her all the time. Somehow, Julie must figure out how to save her uncle, her family’s future, and her own love life—and time is running out! 
What have people been saying about Margo's book?
Here are a few lines from a couple reviews on

I would not consider it a curse but we do seem to have a terrible habit of falling over invisible objects. ;)

I think people can be cursed by others but I think the person has to believe they are to actually be cursed.

A curse: Well one year my mom had her ankle fused (she had Polio), I broke my foot because I fell in the shower, my Dad just got special arch supports for his shoes, and Isaak had bowed feet from birth. My mom and I had our boots on, and my Dad and Isaak had special shoes. I felt like we were feet cursed.

Do I believe in curses? A little. Well I supposed a little. My family has a genetic condition to pass on called Trisomy 18. It's rare to be able to pass it on. It's a family curse.

Thanks for sharing your curses. Hopefully, things will come to pass. My family is cursed with a strong Diabetes risk.

It sounds like it's geared towards the YA audience, but would really be great for anyone YA and older. Cool. :)

I'm familiar with the All-Star season. We had to time our restaurant visit last night around the start of the game, to ensure hubby got a seat in time to see the opening pitch. ;)

Caught Between Two Curses sounds like a great read. But me personally, I don't believe in curses. :)
