THE LIONS OF LITTLE ROCK GIVEAWAY
If you'd like a summary, check out this lovely review in The New York Times and another review at Everyday Reading.
The thing that struck me about the book is that it's really about activism. (And really, how many YA titles out there include activism?) It gives kids a great picture of the kind of work it takes to actually change things in the world. And Marlee is a character you really root for. She changes a lot over the course of this "lost year" after the Little Rock Nine made headlines.
And did I mention there's a number of scenes that take place at a zoo? Yep.
Well done, Kristin! This one is sure to be a strong awards contender. Check it out. And since I reallyreallyreally want you to read it, I'm giving away a copy. Leave a comment, and you're in!
Contest will close midnight CST next Tuesday, Feb. 21.
