Support Teen Reading with Great Prizes!

With thanks to:

I was lead to the website of Randy Russell author of 

Dead Rules by Randy Russell
TBP: June 21, 2011
Jana Webster and Michael Haynes were in love. They were destined to be together forever.

But Jana's destiny was fatally flawed. And now she's in Dead School, where Mars Dreamcote lurks in the back of the classroom, with his beguiling eyes, mysterious smile, and irresistibly warm touch.

Michael and Jana were incomplete with out each other. There was no room for Mars in Jana's life or death story. Jana was sure Michael would soon rush to her side.
But things aren't going according to Jana's plan. So she decides to do whatever it takes to make her dreams come true, no matter what rules she has to break.

Love wasn't all red paper valentines and candy hearts. Sometimes love was despair. And sometimes love was wrong. Jana loved Michael enough to kill him for it. Jana loved Michael to death.

So why is this so epic?
Because he is giving away some epic prizes!

It is so important now since so many libraries have had their budget cuts. I am lucky I live in an area where the library is supported, but will still be one of the cuts if things get worse. 
My favorite memory is the book-mobile. I loved that bus. Couldn't wait for it to come after school on certain days. I would love to see that program in particular make a major comeback. 

So hop on over HERE to get more info!
