It’s Day 6 of my birthday bash! That means there’s only two more giveaways to go. (Apparently I lied, there’s eight. MUAHAHA!)
So today is YA Fiction time. I have two books—one fun to read and one interesting and thought-provoking. What are you waiting for? Go on and read them!
As always, the book descriptions and links are below the rafflecopter. Also, today’s a busy day, with three posts (including this one) going up. Make sure to check them all out!
A Whole Lot of Luck
Thirteen-year-old Kallisto is a superb equestrian living in central Asia. Her mother breeds and trains Ferghana horses, and Kallisto often rides them to determnie which horses excel and should be bred. But when returns to her city after delivering a herd of horses to the nomad breeders, she discovers that the Chinese army is preparing to seize her city—and steal the famous Ferghana horses. It’s up to Kalli and her friend to warn their families and protect the horses from the invading armies.
Hailee Richardson never realized how much she hated her Salvation Army life and Goodwill accessories until the night her family wins the lottery. All of a sudden she’s no longer the only girl at school without a cell phone or a brand-new bike! And the newfound popularity that comes with being a lottery winner is just what she’s always dreamed of. But the glow of her smartphone and fancy new clothes wears off when Hailee is transferred to Magnolia Academy, a private school. All of a sudden, her best friend and parents seem shabby compared to the beautiful Magnolia moms and the popular bad-girl Nikki, who seems to want to be her friend. Now, Hailee wants nothing more than to grow up-and away-from her old life. It’ll take one very busy social networking page, a stolen first kiss, and a whole carton of eggs for Hailee to realize that not all luck is good, not all change is bad, and a best friend who’s just a call away will always be more valuable than a phone.
