The votes are in and the winner of the book of the month is Firstlife (Everlife #1) by New York Times bestselling author Gena Showalter. This novel was one of fifteen that was put into a poll where you, the reader, chose the winning book. This is my way of making it a more interactive way of choosing the book of the month by popularity and anticipation.
Look below for a peek at what the book is about. And, as always, the synopsis is courtesy of Goodreads:
NO SECOND CHANCE.
Tenley “Ten” Lockwood is an average seventeen-year-old girl…who has spent the past thirteen months locked inside the Prynne Asylum. The reason? Not her obsession with numbers, but her refusal to let her parents choose where she’ll live—after she dies.

And what if the realm she’s drawn to isn’t home to the boy she’s falling for? She just has to stay alive long enough to make a decision…”
