My W.O.W for this week is The Mockingbirds by Daisy Whitney.
- I’m a law and crime fiction junkie, and to see that translated a bit into the YA genre is great.(Just ask my friend the lawyer who I make spout legal jargon)
- The synopsis is killer.
- I thought I’d be interesting if a class was to read To Kill a Mockingbird and then The Mockingbirds in tandem.
- The author is awesome and does interesting work with media (one of my degree’s interests)
Jo Knowles’ Jumping off Swings arrives in stores August 11, but you can win a free signed! copy by entering Jo’s new contest. Not only will you receive Jumping Off Swings, but a copy of Jo’s first book, Lessons from a Dear Girl (highly recommended!) which arrives in paperback the same day.
You can help her celebrate the book release by sending a photo of you jumping off a swing, or even just swinging on a swing, for her slide show.
