Last year I was so proud when my first teen book, CHESS RUMBLE, was named a 2008 Notable Book by the American Library Association and a Young Adult Choice by the International Reading Association. Now my second book, SURF MULES, is out as I continue my journey to get teens, particularly boys, to read.
SURF MULES is a thriller about two young surfers on the verge of graduating when they become embroiled in a world of disorganized crime. An epic road journey into the heart of darkness, SURF MULES looks at the choices we make in the struggle to leave adolescence behind and the price we pay in the name of friendship and loyalty. Aren't these issues we all have faced in one way or another?
I am giving away five signed copies of SURF MULES, picked from random entries. To enter, write me at email@example.com or visit www.gneri.com!
Thanks for reading!
