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.  
 

 
 
 
Some Reviews:


"A well-crafted romantic thriller."-AMY ALESSIO, teen librarian, reviewer for The Book Report, author of the Alana O'Neill Mysteries.

 

"Love and friendship break the sound barrier in this suspenseful, fast-paced story."-JOANN KORT, Deaf Educator.
 
 
Susan Miura is a former newspaper and television reporter. She is a professional book reviewer for Faithfulreader.com and works in public relations for a large library. Her books reflect her Christian faith and are meant to inspire as well as entertain.

  1. I met the author in the fall at the Library book exhibit and have wanted the book badly to read for myself and then to give to the teachers of the deaf program in District 130 who teach all the deaf children on the SW side of Chicago. This book will be read and re-read many times.

  10. Well, Susan, I thought I had left a comment, but I guess it did not publish for whatever reason. Anyway, this sounds like a great book. I remember you well from the work you submitted to Starsongs.

    Would you mind to get in touch with me at patti.shene@gmail.com? I'm giving serious thought to adding a teen page to my web site in 2014 where I feature YA books and interview the authors. I'd love to have you as a guest.

    Of course, I'd also love to be entered in the contest to win a copy of the book! Thanks for the giveaway opportunity!
