Saturday Shamelessness!


We've got game!

WIN a copy of Sarah Prineas's The Magic Thief and a whole bunch of other HarperCollins books by clicking HERE. What more can you ask for?

Jody Feldman, author of The Gollywhopper Games (Greenwillow) is running a cool contest for kids to win a Nintendo DS Lite or a very cool Gollywhopper Games T-shirt. Info at Click on the Contests balloon.

Nancy Viau, author of Samantha Hansen Has Rocks in Her Head (Abrams/Amulet) is having a fun drawing. Prizes include a hot-off-the-presses ARC of her middle-grade, a rock collection like her main character's, and much more. Check out her blog for details.


The buzz is building for Zu Vincent's The Lucky Place (Front Street Press), starting with a great review at School Library Journal, who call it "a stunning fiction debut by an author to watch." The rest of the review is HERE. Did you get that? Stunning. Go Zu!

The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books liked The Lucky Place, too, calling it "Moving and multilayered."

Booklist finds even more strengths: "The 1960s setting is infused with small details from a child's viewpoint, providing a solid backdrop to the timeless story of changing family dynamics and allegiances." The reviewer also notes that "Fans of Nancy Werlin's Rules of Survival (2006) are a natural for this sad but hopeful story."

Debbie Reed Fischer has been interviewed by Alice Pope (and Deb's hilarious, as usual): Check it out HERE.

Have a great weekend, everybody. See you Monday!
