Young Adult Faeries & Fantasy Giveaway Hop: Enter to Win "Horns & Wrinkles" by Joseph Helgerson and a $5 Starbucks Gift Card!

Announcing the 3rd Annual
Young Adult Faeries & Fantasy Giveaway Hop
January 8th to 15th

Welcome to the third annual Young Adult Faeries & Fantasy Giveaway Hop hosted by I Am a Reader Not a Writer. Every blog participating in this event is offering a young adult book with faeries or fantasy within its pages (or a gift card to purchase one) with a minimum total prize value of $10! For my giveaway, I am offering:

Horns & Wrinkles
By Joseph Helgerson

About this book:
How can you tell if a river’s under a spell? River trolls, rock trolls, blue-wing fairies -- the usual suspects. The stretch of the Mississippi where Claire lives has rumors of them all, not that she’s ever spotted any. But then Claire’s cousin Duke takes a swim and sprouts a horn -- a long, pointy, handsome thing. After that, Claire doesn’t have much choice but to believe that something rivery is going on, especially since she’s the only one who can help Duke lose his new addition.

In the tradition of grand river adventures, Joseph Helgerson’s tale is as twisty and unpredictable as the Mississippi River itself, while an unusual cast of characters adds pepper to the pot. Readers of all ages will enjoy getting in -- and out of -- trouble with Claire and Duke in this nimble, sharp, and funny fantasy.

“A thoroughly believable fantasy.” -- Publishers Weekly, starred review

“Tongue-in-cheek humor brings a delightful zing to the playfully inventive storytelling. … A new Mississippi River fable has been born.” -- SLK, starred review

“Folksy charm, inventive fantasy, and diverse characters blend in this offbeat river tallish tale.” -- Booklist

“A new tall tale with all the hallmarks of a classic.” -- San Diego Union Tribune

Note: I purchased this book at my local library’s used bookstore so it is a gently used paperback.


In addition to the book above, I am throwing in a $5 Starbucks gift card so you can enjoy a delicious cup of coffee or hot cocoa while you’re reading this book!

Enter through the Rafflecopter form below. This giveaway is open to U.S. residents only and will end at 11:59 PM EST on January 15, 2014.
