The Dark Days of Hamburger Halpin

Continuing in our series of presenting Fresh Teasers about 2010 releases we are excited to read is a glimpse at a funny debut book, The Dark Days of Hamburger Halpin from a funny debut author, Josh Berk!

Here's the blurb:

Being a hefty, deaf newcomer almost makes Will Halpin the least popular guy at Coaler High. But when he befriends the only guy less popular than him, the dork-namic duo has the smarts and guts to figure out who knocked off the star quarterback. Will can’t hear what’s going on, but he’s a great observer. So, who did it? And why does that guy talk to his fingers? And will the beautiful girl ever notice him? (Okay, so Will’s interested in more than just murder...) Those who prefer their heroes to be not-so-usual and with a side of wiseguy will gobble up this witty, geeks-rule debut.

Sounds great, huh?

And one last thing about The Dark Days of Hamburger Halpin: it releases February 9th!

And one last thing about Josh Berk: he’s a fantastic Facebook Scrabble player (and has beaten me in every game)!

Our best to Josh on his debut and hope you, too, will check out his fun first book!
