Monday Book Give Away, #10

This is a fabulous coming of age novel, by the award winning Australian author Tim Winton. His writing is beautiful, taunt and exciting, I found Breath hard to put down; I really didn't want it to end.

Here is the synopsis:
Breath is a story of adolescent rebellion--of learning one's limits by challenging death. On the wild, lonely coast of Western Australia two thrill-seeking boys fall under the spell of Sando, a veteran big-wave surfer. Sando initiates them into a regimen of risk and challenge, and they test themselves and each other on storm swells and over shark-haunted reefs. The boys give no thought to what they could lose, or to the demons that drive their mentor on into ever-greater danger.

This copy has only been read twice, and it's signed by the author. If you're interested, leave a comment.

I will keep the comments open until Sunday afternoon and then announce the winner on Monday morning when I offer a new book. The winner will chosen by the Random-Number-Generator.

The winner of last week's give away is Punk Rock Mom. (I'll send it to your office address, unless you notify my otherwise.)
