3 Happy Birthday, Shakespeare! Win a Copy of PUCK by Kim Askew & Amy Helmes



Happy Birthday, Shakespeare! Win a Copy of PUCK by Kim Askew & Amy Helmes

This month we're celebrating Shakespeare's birthday--which is April 23rd--all month long, with the help of Kim Askew & Helmes, whose Twisted Lit books put a fun, modern-day spin on Shakespeare's classics. You can win an autographed copy of their most recent title, Pucka retelling of A Midsummer Night's Dream. To enter, just do these two things: 1) leave a comment on this post and 2) subscribe to the Twisted Lit mailing list here. They'll pick a winner and announce it on April 23rd. 

More about PUCK: 
Life isn’t always fair, and no one knows that better than fifteen-year-old Puck. When she’s unceremoniously booted from yet another foster home, this city kid lands at DreamRoads, a rehabilitation wilderness camp. Her fellow juvenile delinquents include a famous pop star with a diva attitude, a geeky, “fish out of water” math whiz, and a surly gang-banger with a chip on his shoulder. The program’s steely director aims to break Puck, but she knows that every adult has a breaking point, too. Determined to defy this realm of agonizing nature hikes and soul-sucking psychobabble — even if that means manipulating four lovestruck camp counselors and the director’s dim-witted second-in-command — Puck ultimately gets much more than she bargains for in this “wondrous strange” outdoor odyssey inspired by The Bard’s most beguiling comedy.
