Top Prospect Giveaway

Happy Friday! Congratulations to Beth Wilson, who’s won Sachiko: A Nagasaki Bomb Survivor’s Story by Caren Stelson. Beth, please send your address to so we can get your book in the mail.

The NFL season has just begun, so we’re giving away a middle-grade novel that your sports fans will love: award-winning author Paul Volponi’s Top Prospect.

Travis Gardner lives to play quarterback. He’s a standout QB by the middle school, and he’s prepared to put everything he has into the game. Then Gainesville University’s head coach makes Travis a promise: Travis will have a place on the team, and a scholarship to go with it. He just has to get through high school first.
As Travis starts ninth grade, he’ll have to earn his teammates’ trust and dodge opponents aiming to sack the star quarterback. But his biggest challenge might be staying focused in the face of sudden fame. Because now the pressure is on, and Travis has to prove himself with every pass.
