Hello all! I’m so excited to be joining in the Harper Teen Winter 2016 Tour today because it’s awesome!!! Basically, we’re all spotlighting a different fantastic book coming from Harper Teen this winter and giving away some awesome prizes to boot :D.
First, let me tell you about my book: Mr. Fahrenheit by T. Michael Martin. I’m such a sucker for alien first-contact stories, so of course I had to snag this one ;-).
Stephen King meets Super 8 (with some Friday Night Lights thrown in!) in this coming-of-age novel about a group of teens who witness a flying saucer approaching earth, from the author of The End Games.
Benji’s lived his whole life in the same sleepy midwestern town—the same town his father grew up in, and his grandfather. But he wants nothing more than to put his past in the rearview mirror as soon as he graduates high school. Benji yearns for a Moment—the Moment that will redeem and transform his ordinary life. The Moment that will propel him into a new, star-bright future.
Then one night, the Moment happens:
Benji and his tight group of friends—CR, Ellie, and Zeeko—accidentally shoot down a flying saucer in the local quarry. At Benji’s urging, they decide to keep it a secret and solve its mysteries on their own. But as they face threats both earthly and alien and old tensions among the friends surface, Benji begins to question whether this Moment is the miracle he’s always dreamed of—or a curse that could destroy them all.
A heart-stopping adventure, a tender romance, a smart exploration of ideas of memory and time—and a fond homage to UFO movies—Mr. Fahrenheit is another stunner from T. Michael Martin.
And now I must reveal my secret word! I’m not much of this kind of reader, but it is close to Halloween ;-). My word is: horror!
