Contest: Nicholas Sparks’ The Lucky One

posted by Nell Minow

In honor of this week’s release of “The Lucky One,” I am giving away a copy of the Nicholas Sparks novel it is based on.  Zac Efron stars as a U.S. Marine who finds a photograph of a beautiful woman.  It becomes a talisman for him and he feels that it keeps him safe.  When he comes back to the United States, he goes in search of her and when he meets her he is too emotional to tell her why he is there.  If you’d like to read the book — which conveniently comes with its own little package of tissues — send me an email at moviemom@moviemom.com with “Lucky One” in the subject line and tell me your favorite Nicholas Sparks movie.  Don’t forget your address.  (U.S. addresses only)  I’ll pick a winner at random on April 21.  Good luck!
