The Journal of Curious Letters (The 13th Reality)
By James Dashner
This blog is barely off the ground, but it's due time for a giveaway! I looked at all the authors who I would want a book signed by if I was at BEA this week and then wandered around the bookstore to decide which book I would want to give away. I ended up choosing The 13th Reality: The Journal of Curious Letters by James Dashner. I thoroughly enjoyed The Maze Runner and this book is the first of another series.
I haven't read this book myself, but I'm very intrigued. Here's what the back cover reads:
"What if every time you made a choice that had a significant consequence, a new, alternate reality was created - the life that would've been? What is those new Realities were in danger? What if it fell to you to save all the realities?
Atticus Higginbottom, a.k.a. Tick, is a regular thirteen-year-old boy living a regular life until the day a strange letter arrives in his mailbox. Postmarked from Alaska and cryptically signed with the initials "M.G.," the letter informs Tick that dangerous - perhaps even deadly - events have been set in motion that could result in the destruction of reality itself. M.G. promises to send Tick twelve riddles that will reveal that on a certain day, at a certain time, at a certain place, something extraordinary will happen.
Will Tick have the courage to follow the twelve clues M.G. sends him? Will he be able to solve the riddles in time? As M.G. warns Tick, very frightening things are coming your way. Will you join Tick and his friends on an amazing journey through the Realities? What will your choice be?"
Doesn't it sound curious? Here's what you can do to enter the giveaway:
