I have a pretty awesome giveaway for you all today! No, it isn’t a book. Nor is it swag. Today, as a part of the 2013 Standalone Reading Challenge (if you have yet to sign up, you can sign up here ), we are giving away a query or 2,500 word critique by YA author, C.J Flood. You can enter the giveaway here or at I Like These Books, it doesn’t matter as we are using the same rafflecopter (you only need to enter at one site). But before we get to the entering business, here is a little bit about the awesome debut by the author who has donated the prize.
Infinite Sky by C.J Flood
Simon & Schuster
February 14, 2013
Iris Dancy’s free-spirited mum has left for Tunisia, her dad’s rarely sober and her brother’s determined to fight anyone with a pair of fists.
When a family of travellers move into the overgrown paddock overnight, her dad looks set to finally lose it. Gypsies are parasites he says, but Iris is intrigued. As her dad plans to evict the travelling family, Iris makes friends with their teenage son. Trick Deran is a bare knuckle boxer who says he’s done with fighting, but is he telling the truth?
When tools go missing from the shed, the travellers are the first suspects. Iris’s brother, Sam, warns her to stay away from Trick; he’s dangerous, but Iris can no longer blindly follow her brother’s advice. He’s got secrets of his own, and she’s not sure he can be trusted himself.
Infinite Sky is a family story about betrayal and loyalty, and love.
