By Sassy Cabot from the Read ’Em and Eat Mysteries by Terrie Farley Moran
Well here we are—it is June and Fort Myers Beach is welcoming family vacationers with open arms. Temperatures are in the low 90s most days and the breeze from the Gulf of Mexico feels oh so good.
Now that the Lee County schools are out for the summer, the Teen Book Club members plan to meet every two weeks. Instead of arguing about what to read next or leaving the decision to me, the club members decided to each drop a folded paper with the name of a book into a paper bag and then I got to shake the bag and draw out the name of the first June book. Holes by Louis Sachar won both the Newbery and the National Book Award, so I was delighted it would be our first read. Since it was Julio’s selection, he did a twisty high five fist bump handshake thingy with Larry while shouting, "This book is lit. Wait 'til you read it."
In honor of summer reading we’re offering a copy of Well Read, Then Dead to one lucky commenter. Let us know if you read more books or fewer books when summer comes around. Or tell us anything about your favorite summer reads. Please include your email in this format: your name (at) your server (dot) com--so the spambots can't pick it up. Giveaway closes at midnight Thursday June 22nd.
And remember to keep coming back to the Killer Characters blog as there is a new book giveaway every day for the month of June. Don't you love it?
