White Trash (Alexandra Allred) [includes giveaway]

Alexandra Allred is a new author to me. I downloaded her book from Netgalley because the cover caught my attention (being truthful!) and because the summary seemed interesting to me.

For Christmas 2011 my daughter and her boyfriend decided to gift me with a single-serving coffee machine. The realistic options were Keurig and Tassimo.
