Win A Signed Copy of False Memory by Dan Krokos!

Miranda wakes up alone on a park bench with no memory. In her panic, she releases a mysterious energy that incites pure terror in everyone around her. Except Peter, a boy who isn't at all surprised by Miranda's shocking ability.
Left with no choice but to trust this stranger, Miranda discovers she was trained to be a weapon and is part of an elite force of genetically-altered teens who possess flawless combat skills and powers strong enough to destroy a city. But adjusting to her old life isn't easy--especially with Noah, the boyfriend she can't remember loving. Then Miranda uncovers a dark truth that sets her team on the run. Suddenly her past doesn't seem to matter...when there may not be a future.

How to Enter.  Entering this Contest is a bit more involved than entering my previous one.  Because I am a writer, I wanted to step it up a notch and have this contest be a Writing Contest.  Yup. You read correctly.  This is a writing contest--with a points system.  Before I give you the Writing Prompt, however, I will break down how the entries will be scored.
