Wow, can you believe it is the end of April already? Only 31 days of school left here at HMS...anyway I wanted to pass on some links from the Teenreads.com newsletter which has a very cool site...
My review of The Last Summer of the Death Warriors is HERE....such a great book I want to continue supporting it....
Francisco X. Stork’s latest novel, THE LAST SUMMER OF THE DEATH WARRIORS, is loosely based on Miguel de Cervantes’s classic DON QUIXOTE and portrays the unlikely friendship formed between two very different young men. In our interview, Stork describes how he was able to put himself in the shoes of his two characters and discusses the parallels between this book and his previous acclaimed work, MARCELO IN THE REAL WORLD. You can enter to win a copy of THE LAST SUMMER OF THE DEATH WARRIORS. Just read this excerpt, and click here for contest details.
Another great book that I loved was Alice Hoffman's Green Witch (my review HERE)
GREEN WITCH by Alice Hoffman is a story of survival in a post-apocalyptic world. Read the first chapter of this supernatural tale, and enter our contest for your chance to win a copy of the book.
