Mystery Monday #23: PRETTY CROOKED Mystery Box Giveaway

We are pretty excited here at Sleuths, Spies, and Alibis this month. Pretty Crooked  by Elisa Ludwig, one of our own detectives, releases March 13th!

For our Mystery Monday writing prompt this month we are sponsoring a Pretty Crooked Mystery Box giveaway!

Intrigued? Want to win one of these boxes?Just answer the question posed in the Pretty Crooked book trailer below and you could be one of three winners! Winners will be announced on Monday March 19th, 2012.


  1. Answer: I'd definitely even the score! Bullying is a major no-no, but I don't think I'd approach things as extremely as she did in Pretty Crooked. Super excited for the release!

  4. I would definitely even the score!

  6. Hmm yeah get them where it hurts by taking the stuff they love the most!

  7. I guess i would even the score.

  8. As a victim of bullying when I was child, I am absolutely against bullying in ANY shape or form and for whatever reason. The example in "Pretty Crooke" is the rich attacking the poor, but many forms of bullying takes place all the time.

    As for the question posed in the video, I wouldn't "stand by"---but, I don't believe I would go to the same extreme as "evening the score." If I'm being honest, I just don't retaliate that way. I would most likely defend whoever is being bullied, speak out against it to the perpetrator(s), and try to educate people. Bullying should be illegal!

    Thanks for your generosity in hosting this giveaway. I want to win not only for the book(s), but to be able to appease my curiosity about what's inside that box!

  9. I would even the score. It'd be hard to stand there and watch something like that happen. Even IF it meant me getting caught, if I helped at least one person, it'd be worth getting into trouble.

  10. I'd find a way to even the score, too. This sounds like a unique twist on a bullying story - one that both my 12-yr-old daughter and I would enjoy. Thanks for the opportunity to enter your contest!

  11. I don't know if I would go as far as Willa went, and man did she have some *balls* to do the criminal things she does. However, I would do something to even the score. The girls were probably picking on more than just the poor girls. So ditch the mean friends and get meaningful friends.

    Ah! Love this giveaway! I really want to know whats in the mystery package.
