YAmazing Race with MGnificent Prizes

The YAmazing Race is now officially over, as is the Nerdy Chicks Rule Contest.  Winners will be notified soon! All entries recieved after 12:00 pm today, October 29 will not count. Thank you for stopping by!

Nerdy Chicks Rule is participating in the YAmazing Race with MGnificent prizes. That means this post will be up for a week, while race contestants run through the blogs of over 50 participating debut authors for chances to win awesome prizes. Haven’t heard about it? Click the HERE to visit the Apocalypsies blog for complete details. Whether you are participating in the YAmazing Race or not, check out the additional contest we are running here at Nerdy Chicks Rule. Details follow the information about THE BOY PROJECT below.

So for race contestants, here’s what you’ll need to answer that race question:

Wildly creative seventh grader Kara McAllister just had her best idea yet. She’s going to take notes on all of the boys in her grade (and a few elsewhere) in order to answer a seemingly simple question: How can she get a boyfriend?

But Kara’s project turns out to be a lot more complicated than she imagined. Soon there are secrets, lies, and an embarrassing incident in the boy’s bathroom. Plus, Kara has to deal with mean girls, her slightly spacey BFF, and some surprising uses for duct tape. Still, if Kara’s research leads her to the right boy, everything may just be worth it. . . .

Full of charts and graphs, heart and humor, this hilarious debut will resonate with tweens everywhere.

Reviews, trailer and three ways to order THE BOY PROJECT right HERE.

    Reader <3, Lizzy!

  4. Umm, last time I used duck tape was a couple moves ago when the back of my bookcase did not survive the move and I needed to reattach it. =/ I knew there’d be another move or two in the future so there wasn’t really in point in replacing it at that time.

  5. My favorite use is to duct tape a person’s mouth shut. A LOUD person that goes by the name of MY BEST FRIEND. :p She knows I mean well.

  6. Tia says:

    For sending packages in the mail

  7. Stephanie Trujillo says:

    MY favorite Use of Duct Tape is mainly making accessories, whether its head to toe or even as a costume :), I have also even jazzed up my gaming headset to beat them boys!
    Love the giveaway Fingers Crossed!!!

  8. I used to use it to sick up posters since the posters would fall of with other tapes.

  9. Kayla G says:

    I love using colored duct tape when mailing packages to friends who live out of state. It helps make them a bit more cheery. 🙂

  10. PamM says:

    To decorate my books and to use them to liven up my art & craft projects! 🙂

  12. Jessica says:

    My favorite use for duct tape is fixing anything to be a MacGuyver Mom. This weekend my kids and friend we shared a hotel room with jumped so hard on the bunk beds they broke it. With my trusty PURPLE roll of duct tape in my trunk, I jimmy rigged and secured the bed (better than its weak particle board could manage). Or when a car almost rammed me off the road, but into a large plastic garbage can and almost took out my side mirror, my purple duct tape afforded me the chance to get to our destination with out fearing we would lose it on the road. Ar when a woman couldn’t get into her car with a coat hanger, for fear it would scratch up the lock mechanism, i used my duct tape to seal up the hanger and voila – we got in, no scratches.

  13. Veronika says:

    I like using them for wrapping gifts and packages.

  14. Tizzy Potts says:

    This sounds like a fun book for tweens-my little sis would love it. Thanks for this great giveaway, the prize pack looks really cute. My favorite use for duct tape is for tying people to chairs and interrogating them for information!

  15. Sunny says:

    I like to use duct tape to hold cotton swabs with apple cider against certain parts of skin. Don’t ask… 🙂

  16. Shelver506 says:

    My mom hates flying. She and my dad were sitting in a plane, waiting to take off, and it was taking FOREVER. She was getting really nervous… and didn’t feel any better when a guy went SPRINTING from the front of the plane to the back, duct tape in hand. They took off soon after. Eek!

  20. Duct tape is actually very handy when my husband shouts at his computergame. Just a bit of duct tape over his mouth, and he shuts op (no mentioning the shouting when he tries getting it off again) =D

  21. Katy B says:

    I have two wallets that friends made for me in high school out of duct tape. I also just watched a tutorial on how to make Harley Quin’s boots out of duct tape which I may use next year for a Harley Quinn Halloween costume. My all time favorite though was the dress my friend made for Prom using only duct tape. It was great.

    I love to watch old MacGyver episodes. I was always amazed at the many uses of duct tape that he invented. My brother used to love to wrap Christmas gifts in a layer of duct tape, very irritating. 😉

    Favorite use? To hold things together. And pluck some hair out from my husband’s arm (yes, I know, I’m evil, muahahahahaha).

    Thanks for the giveaway 😀

  34. Carmel says:

    I usually gag myself with it and pretend I’m being kidnapped! HAHAHA. I usually use it to pluck some hair out of my jeans since I have pets at home. The pet hair usually sticks on my jeans and that is where the duct tape comes in handy,

    I never really used duct tape all that often. I used it to fix backpack straps in high school. I don’t know why I didn’t just ask my mom to buy me a knew one…

    I was always more fond of electrical tape. I was in color guard in high school, and we would tape up our rifles and sabres and flag poles with electrical tape.

  39. Annabelle H says:

    I don’t use it that often but I used to use it to stick my very large photgrams together to make a big picture!

    My favorite use of duct tape was when my friend and I were on a trip and in the lobby we took tape ant taped up my mom but she got out and started tickling us.

  42. Hikma says:

    I don’t really use duct tape, but if I did, it would be a laugh to cover my parent’s car with it!

    Duct tape for sealing up boxes.

    I love using it to attach my friends backpacks under the lunch table when they leave.

  47. I think I’m the least interesting person when it comes to duct tape . .. I only using it for fixing stuff :S This is possibly related to my overuse of regular tape when I was little and then not being allowed to use much tape later on 😀 (Oops?)
