An Intriguing Read Giveaway




The Winner of Show Me a Sign is Cheri Swalwell. Congrats.
 
 

Here is a picture of the author, Susan Miura, at her launch party where she signed her book for me.

 
I am giving away the young adult novel, Show Me a Sign by Susan Miura. I have not given away many YA books, but am a believer in Christians writing interesting and realistic books with positive messages that will engage young people.




Check out the plot from the back cover:
 
All he wanted was to share a pizza with the coolest girl he'd ever met. Then his almost-girlfriend was kidnapped. Seventeen-year-old Nathan Boliva is under investigation by the FBI for a kidnapping he didn't commit. Deaf and beautiful Haylie Summers agreed to go on a date with him, then disappeared the day before. When the Feds discover a text was sent from Nathan's cell phone, asking Haylie to meet him behind her garage, Nathan becomes a prime suspect. An action-packed plunge into intrigue and danger.
