Weekend Book Give-Away: The Cydonian Pyramid

Did you read The Obsidian Blade?  Then you will be excited to get to read this week's book is the The Cydonian Pyramid by Pete Hautman before the library copies have even come in!

More than half a millennium in the future, in the shadow of the looming Cydonian Pyramid, a pampered girl named Lah Lia has been raised for one purpose: to be sacrificed through one of the mysterious diskos that hover over the pyramid's top. But just as she is about to be killed, a strange boy appears from the diskos, providing a cover of chaos that allows her to escape and launching her on a time-spinning journey in which her fate is irreversibly linked to his. In this second volume of the Klaatu Diskos trilogy, Tucker Feye and Lah Lia each hurtle through time, relating their stories in alternating viewpoints that converge at crucial moments. Fans of the first adventure will be intrigued by the chance to see the world through Lah Lia's eyes -- no matter how disturbing the vision might be.

For a chance to win, tell me about a time you gained understanding by seeing things from a different perspective...or about a good book you've read that does this.

Winner will be selected with Random Number Generator on Tuesday May 14, 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.

There was once a murder mystery I read, unfortunately I don't remember the title, that had narration from both the victim and the murders point of view. It helped you understand motives and the thought process of both. I didn't sympathize with the murderer but it helped me see more of the ins and outs of what the murderer is going through.
