Mysteries, races, chainsaws: CHASING ALLIECAT
I am biased beyond belief--friends are in this trailer, friends made this trailer, and it was written by a Sister in Ink--but seriously, friends, you must read CHASING ALLIECAT. It's a wonderful mystery, and there are *incredible* bike racing scenes that will take your breath away--truly like you are on Sadie's bike with her. Plus, there is a missing chainsaw, which is pretty much irrelevant to the story, but its "bring it back" sign is the most hilarious point of the book. Well, that and firing the cannon.
See? Cannons, chainsaws, bikes--oh, and dead priests and murderous hicks in pickups--you've really gotta. Pre-order it here, and watch the trailer here. You will *not* be sorry. It's an ALAN pick and a Junior Library Guild selection, so I'm not the only one who thinks it's fab, but you'll agree with me--I know it! It's out in February, which is soon.
GO, BECKY! Woo woo!
(one of my New Year's resolutions is not to use so many exclamation points, but they're justified here, yes?)
