Remarkable Contest

I am having a REMARKABLE contest in honor of Lizzie K. Foley's Remarkable, which hits stores on April 12th.

Here's a sneak peek at her debut Middle Grade novel:

In the town of Remarkable, almost nothing is ordinary, except for one girl named Jane. Jane's parents are world famous, and her brother and sister are prodigies. Her grandmother is Remarkable's mayor. Every kid in town goes to Remarkable's School for the Remarkably Gifted -- except Jane. Since Jane is not gifted, she has to go to the regular public school, where she is the only student.

Her life is boring...

...until the nefariously wicked Grimlet twins get expelled from the gifted school and are assigned to Jane's fifth grade class...

...then a weather machine, a band of pirates, a music-loving lake monster, and a jelly controversy wreak havoc on Jane's beloved community...

...and Jane learns that the fate of Remarkable rests in her overwhelmingly average hands.

How FUN does this book sound?!?

YOU can win yourself a copy of Remarkable -- AND a $25 gift card to Barnes & Noble!
