Flapper Alert: A Roaring Twenties Giveaway

Bootleggers, gangsters, and a dash of romance—what could be more glittering and decadent than New York City in the Roaring Twenties? In Janet Fox’s new novel, Sirens, 17-year-old Josephine Winter is shipped off to live with her rich cousins in Manhattan. Caught up in the swirl of the bobbed-hair set—and the shady men who court them—Jo soon realizes that this world of jazz and gangsters and their molls hides a nest of lies, and she is faced with a choice: hang on to her soul, or lose herself in the decade of decadence.
Penguin wants to give you an early look at Sirens—enter to win a free copy of the book by sending an email to SirensGiveaway@gmail.com with your name, library, shipping address, and email address. Five lucky winners will receive a copy of Sirens for their collections. Email entries must be received by midnight (PDT) on Friday, November 30. Winners will be selected in a random drawing on December 1 and notified via email. Only one entry per person; prizes will only be shipped to U.S. addresses.
