Weekend Book Give-Away: Scarlet

Can you believe we are already halfway through Teen Tech Month?  How does the time fly so quickly?   I'm a pretty big geek, so when I think technology, I love to think about science fiction.  It is such a fun way to explore the possible directions our world might be going in, and to think about the consequences before we get too far down any one particular path.  One of the most fun science fiction series I've come across recently has to be The Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer.  I know any of you who read Cinder are totally looking forward to this weekend's book:  Scarlet.

Cinder, the cyborg mechanic, returns in the second thrilling installment of the bestselling Lunar Chronicles. She's trying to break out of prison - even though if she succeeds, she'll be the Commonwealth's most wanted fugitive. Halfway around the world, Scarlet Benoit's grandmother is missing. It turns out there are many things Scarlet doesn't know about her grandmother or the grave danger she has lived in her whole life. When Scarlet encounters Wolf, a street fighter who may have information as to her grandmother's whereabouts, she is loath to trust this stranger, but is inexplicably drawn to him, and he to her. Scarlet and Wolf unravel one mystery, they encounter another when they meet Cinder. Now, all of them must stay one step ahead of the vicious Lunar Queen Levana, who will do anything for the handsome Prince Kai to become her husband, her king, her prisoner. 

For a chance to win this book,  tell me what is the most creative re-use of an old fairytale that you've encountered in a book.

Winner will be selected with Random Number Generator on Tuesday March 19, 2013. Be sure to leave a name with your entry, and check back to see if you won. To win you must be a teen (6th-12th grade, or 12-18) who uses a Sno-Isle Library.

Well I read this one book that was based on the sleeping beauty myth and i loved how they made her not even know it but everyone else kind of knew she was and one person was trying to kill her. very creative.

I read Tigerheart by Peter David. It is a re-telling of Peter Pan and I absolutely loved it! Peter Pan was my favorite fairy tale growing up and I have read Tigerheart countless times.
