The Alpha Bet Giveaway!


Stephanie Hale’s newest young adult novel, The Alpha Bet, is quite a treat for fans and new readers alike. It features the 16 year-old Grace Kelly Cook in her first semester of college, setting out to perform 26 alphabetical tasks in order to advance herself from Geek to Greek. And what could go wrong definitely does!

You may have read Stephanie’s Aspen Brooks series, featuring the beautiful, popular, talented (and ultimately sleuth-crafty) heroine whose humorous reflections of the life she felt owed to her made the pages practically turn by themselves.

Grace Kelly is almost Aspen’s polar opposite, in that her lifetime focus has been her brainy achievements, trying to overcome natural clumsiness and finding a common ground with her neurotically overprotective mother. Fashion, popularity, dating--not in her vocabulary.

But what these two so-different heroines have in common is Stephanie’s sharp, clever writing, and her ability to focus in on the little details that simply bring a story to life.

Booklist loves The Alpha Bet, too, saying: “Hale sets a perfect tone—overtly bubbly with glimpses of Grace Kelly’s obvious intelligence—for her gawky, brainy wallflower with a delightful personality."

And so now the giveaway! In order to be entered to win a copy of The Alpha Bet, simply leave a comment telling us so. The contest starts NOW and ends Sunday night, with the winner chosen by my handy-dandy random number generator on Monday.

I would LOVE to win a copy of "The Alpha Bet Giveaway". My library for readers beginner through teens is one of my proudest possions. The fact is books do not become part of my library until I read them, then I can pass on the recommendations to all young people I encounter as a teacher.
PS. Cool wesite, got it off of Steve Brezenoff's page
