Introducing ... PARCHED!

This week I'm highlighting a very special new novel by the amazing author Melanie Crowder. Parched released yesterday to rave reviews, including positive nods from Kirkus Reviews, The Wall Street Journal, School Library Journal, and Booklist. (You can read my own review on the Lucky 13 blog right here.)

Part survival story, part friendship story, Parched is a book you'll swallow whole. Don't be put off by its brief page count--like a beautiful poem, the depth is in its spare, gorgeous prose and its heartfelt story.

  5. What a great giveaway. I love multicultural books and would love to read one on water/dought/famine. I don't there are many out there on that topic.
