Great Giveaway by Author Sherry Gammon

Sherry Gammon

My good friend and fellow author Sherry Gammon is having a great giveaway on her blog to celebrate the release of her new book, Souls in Peril. I was lucky enough to read this book as she wrote it, and I can tell you how much I love this book! It's heartbreaking, frustrating, lovable, hopeful, and unforgettable. All the things that make a book great. You can read my review of the book below.

If it weren't enough that she's giving away a couple copies of this fantastic book, she's also giving away some Souls in Peril swag, a couple of her other books, and she has several other books by authors Cheri Schmidt, Marie Higgins, IC Fisher, Pendragon Iman, and Daniel Coleman. And, oh yeah, she just happens to be giving away a couple of books by yours truly: a paperback copy of Geek Girl and an eBook copy of Red and the Wolf
So click on this link and hop on over to her blog to sign up for some great prizes.

My review:

Souls in Peril is seriously one of the best books I've ever read. It had me in turn laughing and crying, my heart aching for all the characters involved.

Max is a kid who has it all: he's popular, athletic, has a great family and the perfect girlfriend. Then, in an instant his life changes.

JD is the opposite of Max in luck. Overweight and bullied, both at school and at home, JD's only bright spot in life is his friend Izzy.

Max and JD's lives become inexorably intertwined, and for the first time in his life Max is forced to understand what it is to "walk a mile" in JD's shoes.

This book gripped me from the first page and refused to let go until I'd read all the way to the end. The ending isn't all flowers and sunshine, either. It's real. Like life. But I promise you won't be disappointed.

Gammon's writing is full of humor, sorrow, realism, and pulls you into places you might not want to go, but will be happy you did when all is said and done. I HIGHLY recommend this book!
