A signed copy of FORGE by Laurie Halse Anderson

Donated by: Nicola's Books

Laurie Halse Anderson's books just kill me. They're so so SO ridiculously good. So you can imagine how thrilled I was when the terrific people at Nicola's Books, hosts for my launch party on July 23rd, said they had a couple of signed copies that they wanted to donate to the auction. And here's one of them!

Prize details:
The winner will receive a signed copy of FORGE by Laurie Halse Anderson.

About FORGE:
In this compelling sequel to Chains, a National Book Award Finalist and winner of the Scott O’Dell Award for Historical Fiction, acclaimed author Laurie Halse Anderson shifts perspective from Isabel to Curzon and brings to the page the tale of what it takes for runaway slaves to forge their own paths in a world of obstacles—and in the midst of the American Revolution.

The Patriot Army was shaped and strengthened by the desperate circumstances of the Valley Forge winter. This is where Curzon the boy becomes Curzon the young man. In addition to the hardships of soldiering, he lives with the fear of discovery, for he is an escaped slave passing for free. And then there is Isabel, who is also at Valley Forge—against her will. She and Curzon have to sort out the tangled threads of their friendship while figuring out what stands between the two of them and true freedom.
