Contest with a lot of Awesomeness!

Hey everyone, Contest time!?
Kelley was nice enough to giveaway a signed copy of The Summoning and The Awakening, Bookmarks, and a Tote Bag to one very lucky winner.
Here is what the two books are about:

Chloe Saunders sees dead people. Yes, like in the films. The problem is, in real life saying you see ghosts gets you a one-way ticket to the psych ward. And at 15, all Chloe wants to do is fit in at school and maybe get a boy to notice her. But when a particularly violent ghost haunts her, she gets noticed for all the wrong reasons. Her seemingly crazed behaviour earns her a trip to Lyle House, a centre for 'disturbed teens'. At first Chloe is determined to keep her head down. But then her room mate disappears after confessing she has a poltergeist, and some of the other patients also seem to be manifesting paranormal behaviour. Could that be a coincidence? Or is Lyle House not quite what it seems...? Chloe realizes that if she doesn't uncover the truth, she could be destined for a lifetime in a psychiatric hospital. Or could her fate be even worse...? Can she trust her fellow students, and does she dare reveal her dark secret?
If you had met me a few weeks ago, you probably would have described me as an average teenage girl—someone normal. Now my life has changed forever and I’m as far away from normal as it gets. I'm a living science experiment—not only can I see ghosts, but I can raise the dead without even trying. Trust me, that is not a power you want to have. Ever. I’m running for my life with three of my supernatural friends and we have to find someone who can help us gain our freedom back before the Edison Group finds us first. Or die trying.
To enter, you must answer this question:
What sort of "power", would you like most?

    Hi Sarah :) I love your contest idea!! Fun :)
    Okay, I would select the Power of Knowledge - wherein all I had to do was to think a question and have the ability to KNOW the answer!

  60. I would like the power to make my imagination come to life if I wanted to. (tends to think of food) :D

    +5 new follower

  61. To enter, you must answer this question:
    What sort of "power", would you like most?

    Speed or strength would be nice but what I'd really like is to be able to have an actual conversation with my animals.

    +3 for Tweeting? I'm @bookdragonslair

    I haven't commented yet on your reviews ;) so I guess that's it!

    {going back to read your interview....}

  62. Let see
    What sort of "power", would you like most?

    The power I would like is to be able to move stuff without having to get up (lazy)but I think It would ,make my life much easser

  63. I have alway wanted the power to blink, like bewitched. I could accomplish so much like that.
    +5 I am a new follower!

  64. The power that I would love to have would be telekinesis. Being able to move things with your mind would be oh so awesome. I would probably become lazy as a result of having this power but it would so be worth it. The second most power that I would want to have would be flying. I think it would be so freeing and exhilarating to go where ever you want just by flying.
