March Misfit - Giveaway & Sneak Peek (Part 2)!

We're only two days away from the release of March Misfit by Barbara Stremikis and the celebration continues!

Not only has Barbara provided us with a sneak peek of her fabulous book, she's also giving away a copy of March Misfit this week! Just leave a comment any time this week to be entered in our drawing to win your own copy of March Misfit.

Lucky for us, though, we don't have to wait until Friday to start reading March Misfit. We posted Chapter One yesterday, and today we're previewing Chapter Two. Cool!

Here's what the story is about:

When a mudslide destroys her home and kills her parents, fifteen-year-old Cara Talbot is sent to live with a distant cousin, his wife, and five sons on a dairy farm in Indiana. The stink of cattle, a tiny bedroom loft, and two brothers who resent her intrusion make life a bitter struggle. As she copes with her grief, she finds solace caring for an autistic child, who helps her see the softer side of Nicolas March, another family misfit.


And here's Chapter Two:

Cara jerked awake when the hall lights came on. The harsh glare streamed through slits in the curtain. The clock read 4:30. She turned over and tried to go back to sleep, but Nicolas passed her room and headed downstairs, shouting to his brothers to get up and get going.

“You’d better be at the barn by the time I get the cows there,” he warned. “That means you too, Gideon.”

How did Nicolas find cows in the dark?
