Feathers

I’ve got another giveaway for you, this time from my amazingly talented friend and editor-sister Anna-Marie McLemore. I’m giving away a signed copy of THE WEIGHT OF FEATHERS (which comes out on Sept. 15!) and a fun mermaid necklace. This book is a stunning YA magical realism novel that has rightfully taken its place as one of my favorite books of the year. Before we get to the giveaway entry, here’s a little about the book:

For twenty years, the Palomas and the Corbeaus have been rivals and enemies, locked in an escalating feud for over a generation. Both families make their living as traveling performers in competing shows—the Palomas swimming in mermaid exhibitions, the Corbeaus, former tightrope walkers, performing in the tallest trees they can find.

Lace Paloma may be new to her family’s show, but she knows as well as anyone that the Corbeaus are pure magia negra, black magic from the devil himself. Simply touching one could mean death, and she’s been taught from birth to keep away. But when disaster strikes the small town where both families are performing, it’s a Corbeau boy, Cluck, who saves Lace’s life. And his touch immerses her in the world of the Corbeaus, where falling for him could turn his own family against him, and one misstep can be just as dangerous on the ground as it is in the trees.

Beautifully written, and richly imaginative, The Weight of Feathers is an utterly captivating young adult novel by a talented new voice.

I promise you that you NEED this book in your life. Now, go enter the Rafflecopter giveaway!
