Back to the Books Giveaway Hop: Win Unlocked by Ryan G. Van Cleave

Back to the Books Giveaway Hop runs from September 1-7, 2011 and is hosted by the lovely I Am A Reader, Not a Writer and Buried in Books. I am stop # 85!

Since the hop is back to school themed, I decided to also make my giveaway school themed. One of my favourite reads from the month of August was Unlocked by Ryan G. Van Cleave. This is a novel-in-verse about a boy who befriends a potiential school shooter. I gave the novel a 4/5 and you can read my review here.

Andy is the janitor's son, an outcast, a nobody. Then the rumor starts-that Blake has a gun in his locker. In a moment of misguided hopefulness, Andy steals the keys from his dad and opens up Blake's locker, hoping that finding the gun will change his own status. But the gun isn't there and Andy remains an outcast. When an unlikely friendship develops between the two loners, Blake shares most of his secrets with Andy, including the gun. But there's one secret that worries Andy more than anything-the date circled on Blake's calendar. Does Blake have something planned? Something that Andy can prevent? In a fascinating look at how teens deal with the now constant threat of school violence, debut author Ryan G. Van Cleave provides a unique, emotional perspective on how it feels to be the one who can prevent a tragedy.

One lucky reader will win a paperback copy of this book from The Book Depository.
