As you probably know, the day we've been counting down to is almost here!! Make sure you stop by tomorrow because I have a one last surprise to announce, and if you plan on reading Sprinkles and Secrets, you definitely want to hear about this surprise!
But today is a different kind of surprise. Today I want to give away a really special middle grade novel because as much as I love reading YA, MG novels have a special place in my heart. I love them in a different way. The 10-year-old reader in me gets SO excited about a heart-warming MG read.
A friend picked up an Advanced Review Copy of this book for me at ALA, and I really enjoyed it. And I want to give some lucky reader a chance to enjoy it too.
Yes, this is the highly anticipated LEISL AND PO, written by NYT bestselling author Lauren Oliver. Lauren, like me, writes YA and MG, and she does both with incredible talent. Wow.
I loved this book. Loved with a capital L. It's really like nothing I've ever read before. Here's the description from Goodreads:
Leisl lives in a tiny attic bedroom, locked away by her cruel stepmother. Her only friends are the shadows and the mice -- until one night a ghost appears from the darkness. It is Po, who comes from the Other Side. Both Leisl and Po are lonely, but together they are less alone.
That same night, alchemist's apprentice, Will, bungles an important delivery. He accidentally switches a box containing the most powerful magic in the world with one containing something decidedly less remarkable.
Will's mistake has tremendous consequences for Leisl and Po, it draws the three of them together on an extraordinary journey.
