Giveaway: Seconds Away & Shelter by Harlan Coben

I have a great giveaway this week thanks to Penguin and Big Honcho Media. I have one fun prize pack: SHELTER & SECONDS AWAY by Harlan Coben. Plus, a super cute bag to carry them in. US only. First, info about the book and author.

About Seconds Away
When tragedy strikes close to home, Mickey Bolitar and his loyal new friends—sharp-witted Ema and the adorkably charming Spoon—find themselves at the center of a terrifying mystery involving the shooting of their friend Rachel. Now, not only does Mickey have to continue his quest to uncover the truth about the Abeona Shelter, the Butcher of Lodz and the mysterious death of his father, he needs to figure out who shot Rachel—no matter what it takes.

Mickey has always been ready to sacrifice everything to help the people he loves. But with danger just seconds away, how can he protect them when he’s not even sure who—or what—he’s protecting them from?

About Shelter
The stunning young adult debut from international bestseller Harlan Coben is now in paperback!
Mickey Bolitar's year can't get much worse. After witnessing his father's death and sending his mom to rehab, he's forced to live with his estranged uncle Myron and switch high schools. Fortunately, he's met a great girl, Ashley, and it seems like things might finally be improving. But then Ashley vanishes. Mickey follows Ashley's trail into a seedy underworld that reveals that Ashley isn't who she claimed to be. And neither was Mickey's father. Soon Mickey learns about a conspiracy so shocking that it leaves him questioning everything about the life he thought he knew.

About the author

  18. Shelter was packed full of twists and turns that I can't wait to find out what happens in Seconds Away! Love it, and I think the series has such massive appeal for boys (which is great because sometime it is very difficult to get male students to read anything)!

    Thanks for the giveaway!
