Autobiography of Us – Aria Beth Sloss giveaway

Giveaway now closed.

Last year, I reviewed a lovely debut. The story of two female friends in 1960s America who are changed by an incident at college. I described it as ‘a gem of a debut novel’ and thanks to Picador, you can win a copy of the paperback published next week.

You can click the book cover to read my review and here’s the blurb:

Coming of age in early 1960s suburban California, Rebecca Madden and her beautiful, reckless best friend Alex dream of lives beyond their mothers’ narrow expectations. As teenagers they are inseparable. But then, one sweltering evening the summer before their college graduation, a single act of betrayal changes everything.

Decades later, Rebecca’s haunting confession reveals the truth about that night, the years that followed, and the friendship that defined her.

Gorgeous, captivating and compelling, Autobiography of Us is the story of two women caught between repression and rebellion, and the sacrifices, struggles and triumphs of a generation.

Entering the giveaway is easy, simply leave a comment below. As always, I’m happy to send worldwide. Entries close at 12pm U.K. time on Sunday 29th June and a winner will be chosen at random shortly afterwards.
