Good morning everyone! I hope you’re all having a great Easter weekend. We’re just having a quiet one here. However, here on Peeking Between the Pages, I have a giveaway for you! I just happen to have an extra copy of Miles from Ordinary by Carol Lynch Williams that St. Martin’s Press was nice enough to send me along with my review copy. Many of you may recognize this author as she wrote The Chosen One which got rave reviews. Now Carol Lynch Williams is back with Miles from Ordinary which released on March 15/11 and it sounds fantastic. I hope to have a review up shortly for you all. In the meantime, here is a bit about the book…
Thirteen-year-old Lacey wakes to a beautiful summer morning excited to begin her new job at the library, just as her mother is supposed to start work at the grocery store. Lacey hopes that her mother’s ghosts have finally been laid to rest; after all, she seems so much better these days, and they really do need the money. But as the hours tick by and memories come flooding back, a day full of hope spins terrifyingly out of control….
“No one can get inside the head and heart of a 13-year-old girl better than Carol Lynch Williams, and I mean no one,” said James S. Jacobs, Professor of Children’s Literature at Brigham Young University, of her breakout novel, The Chosen One. Now this award-winning YA author brings us an equally gripping story of a girl who loves her mother, but must face the truth of what life with that mother means for both of them.
