#BIR2010 - Book Spotlights & Giveaway: The Replacement, The Lonely Hearts Club & 13 to Life

Welcome to Day 7 of the Best I've Read 2010 event! We hope you are enjoying all the interviews, guest posts and giveaways so far. With this post we are offering you three amazing books: The Replacement by Brenna Yovanoff, The Lonely Hearts Club by Elizabeth Eulberg & a signed Secrets and Shadows chapter book (the second book in the 13 to Life series) by Shannon Delany! Pretty awesome, right? Read below for the book info and fill out the form to enter. 

The Replacement Book Info: 

The Replacement by Brenna Yovanoff
Publisher: Penguin
Release Date: September 21, 2010

Book Summary (from Penguin): Mackie Doyle is not one of us. Though he lives in the small town of Gentry, he comes from a world of tunnels and black murky water, a world of living dead girls ruled by a little tattooed princess. He is a Replacement—left in the crib of a human baby sixteen years ago. Now, because of fatal allergies to iron, blood, and consecrated ground, Mackie is fighting to survive in the human world.

Mackie would give anything to live among us, to practice on his bass or spend time with his crush, Tate. But when Tate's baby sister goes missing, Mackie is drawn irrevocably into the underworld of Gentry, known as Mayhem. He must face the dark creatures of the Slag Heaps and find his rightful place, in our world, or theirs.

Edward Scissorhands meets The Catcher in the Rye in this wildly imaginative and frighteningly beautiful horror novel about an unusual boy and his search for a place to belong.

Love is all you need... or is it? Penny's about to find out in this wonderful debut.

A movement is born: The Lonely Hearts Club (named after the band from Sgt. Pepper). Penny is suddenly known for her nondating ways . . . which is too bad, because there's this certain boy she can't help but like. . . .
