Marvelous Middle Grade Monday + GIVEAWAY


Marvelous Middle Grade Monday

Shannon Whitney Messenger decided it was time to give middle grade stories the attention they deserve, and "Marvelous Middle Grade Mondays" was born. 

 
***BLOG TOUR:***

Huber Hill and the Brotherhood of the Coronado
  by B.K. Bostick


Expected publication: October 9th 2012 by Sweetwater Books


Synopsis:

The Dead Man’s Treasure has been stolen! When Huber receives a revelatory message from a girl in Spain regarding the treasure’s location, the gang hatches a plan. Convincing their parents they are part of a study abroad program, Huber, Scott, and Hannah travel to Salamanca, Spain- an old city full of secrets. 
While in pursuit of their goal, the group becomes dangerously entwined with a secret society called the Brotherhood of Coronado- a ruthless organization led by three self proclaimed kings, bent on reacquiring the lost fortunes of the Spanish empire for nefarious purposes. 
Their only hope of finding the stolen treasure and escaping the city with their lives requires trust in new found friends and in a cloaked figure who reveals clues leading to the Brotherhood’s hiding place. But in a city of strangers, who can you trust?  
With a plot that will keep you guessing, Huber Hill and the Brotherhood of Coronado is a study abroad adventure you’ll want to be a part of!

B. K. Bostick has provided us with another perfect MG story full of adventure and bad guys and unexpected craziness. I loved getting to rejoin the awesome cast of characters from The Dead Man's Treasure and following them on their most recent quest--to Spain! I enjoyed this one even more than the first, which is awesome, because I loved the first one!

This sounds like a great book. Thanks for sharing about it Shannon. I'm not entering the contest because I'm trying to get my TBR list under control.

Shannon, you're always coming up with books from small publishers that may not get a lot of buzz elsewhere. They should give you a commission! This one sounds exciting, especially the treasure part, but let someone else win (I, too, have a huge stack of books to read).

Michael G-G said...

I know how much you admire B.K. Bostick, Shannon. This sounds like another great Huber Hill book.

Jemi Fraser said...

Need to add this one to my class library once it's out and about!

Theresa Milstein said...
