Book Giveaway: "How To Hug A Porcupine-Negotiating The Prickly Points Of The Tween Years," By Julie A. Ross, M.A.~~~CLOSED~~~

I won this fabulous book in a giveaway. However, it's useless to me, because I don't have any tween (pre-teens). Therefore, I'm passing along my blessing to one of my readers who can definitely benefit from this book. (This book is brand new in excellent condition)

"How To Hug A Porcupine" lets parents peek into the underlying, confusing thoughts and perplexing decisions that young tween are constantly facing.

More info about this book:
*Find out how other parents survived nightmarish tween behavior--and still raised great kids.
*Break the "nagging cycle," give your kids the right balance of responsibilities, and get results.
*Talk about sex, drugs, and alcohol so your kid will listen.
*Discover the secret that will help your child disregard peer pressure and make smart choices--for life.
