We are giving away signed hardbacks of two of the most amazing books ever! (Details below.)
No person outside my family has influenced my son's life more than this amazing man. You can see the thrill on my face at meeting him last month. In person he is just like his books - full of incredible stories and interesting information. BUT in real life he is hilarious! It was such an honor to be able to thank him in person for his influence in my son's life.
Gary has written a new book woven with historical vignettes called Woods Runner. It's about a 13 year old boy who sets out to rescue his family from during the Revolutionary War.

If I had to scream praise for a book, it would be Lindsey Leavitt's middle grade novel PRINCESS FOR HIRE. From the first page, I was laughing... the first sentence! The main character drew me in and carried me through the story to the end. Humor, heart-ache, magic and love--that's what makes this book shine.
