I,Q Book 2 Sneak Peeks and a giveaway!

Waaaay back in October of 2008, I raved about a little YA book called I,Q: Independence Hall by Roland Smith. I found it thrilling, page-turning, and a clean read for teens. Great for reluctant readers. Here's a bit more of what I said:

"Once I sat down and began reading this young adult novel, I had to keep making excuses to come back to it. I brought it into a restaurant, read it on a "hike" with the hubby and the dog, and kept turning the light back on at night to continue it. The thrill ride starts with the first page and doesn't ever let up. From page to page the reader isn't quite sure who the bad guys are or if everyone is a bad guy! The writing is fantastic, perfect for teens and middle graders, and the characters really display true emotion. If this were to actually happen to a couple of kids, I can see them reacting in exactly the way Q and Angela do.

My favorite part of the book is the fact that there is really a perfect amount of techy talk, action, and thrills, but not too much of any of them. So many books in this genre are filled with characters getting killed and bad language, but I, Q really keeps everything in perspective. There is talk of guns and some slight violence, but I would have no problem recommending this to my teens and middle school patrons and would have confidence telling their parents it is a safe read."

You can read my full review here.


Well, to promote I,Q: The White House, the second title in this series, Sleeping Bear Press is giving us some sneak peeks into the book, which is being published later this Spring. So far, there are two sneak peeks up...both verrrry interesting teasers, and you can go here to find them.

Sleeping Bear Press also thought it would be nice to give away THREE copies of the first book, I, Q: Independence Hall, to get those new to the series geared up for the release of book 2. How nice is that?

I actually just picked the first book up not all that long ago (technically, I've HAD it for longer but you know how a To Be Read pile gets crazy). Goes a mile a minute! Excited for a sequel!
