Thanks to everyone who participated in my online contest to win a signed copy of The Yo-Yo Prophet. And the winner is … (pause for drum roll) … school librarian Sarah W.
If you’re disappointing you didn’t win, you can read the first fifteen pages of the book below. I hope that helps.
Need a reason to run out and buy your own copy of the book? Here’s the latest review:
“Calvin is a likable character who is struggling to keep it together under the mounting stress, the relationship between Calvin and his grandmother is realistically portrayed, and the eventual resolution with Calvin’s dad feels authentic. Meanwhile, the yo-yoing scenes are surprisingly vivid and keep the action moving. Readers will root for Calvin to stand up to Rozelle and triumph in the end.”
