|“Look! We’re inventing basketball. How exciting!”|
A different kind of game is afoot in Quicksilver, R. J. Anderson’s new young adult novel from Carolrhoda Lab ™. This much-anticipated companion to Ultraviolet (2011, now available in paperback for those playing catch-up) follows sixteen-year-old Tori, an engineering whiz with–you guessed it, didn’t you?–a dangerous secret. She and her family have left behind their old life in the hopes that, armed with a fresh identity, Tori will be safe. But it soon becomes clear that Tori can’t outrun her past, and that she’ll need to rely on every ounce of her special skills–plus some help from friends, old and new–if she finally wants to be free.
For a chance to win Quicksilver, just leave a comment on this post (with your name, or a name you’re comfortable answering to) or Tweet this: “Free Book Friday!
