Weekend Book Giveaway: Sky on Fire

This weeks book Monument 14: Sky on Fire by Emmy Laybourne is an action packed thriller full of characters with gritty determination who will do anything they can do to survive...even in the face of disaster. This brand-new hardback copy has ten requests on it!

The world hasn't ended; yet. Trapped in a superstore by a series of escalating disasters, including a monster hailstorm and terrifying chemical weapons spill, brothers Dean and Alex learned how to survive and worked together with twelve other kids to build a refuge from the chaos. But then strangers appeared, destroying their fragile peace, and bringing both fresh disaster and a glimmer of hope. Knowing that the chemical weapons saturating the air outside will turn him into a bloodthirsty rage monster, Dean decides to stay in the safety of the store with Astrid and some of the younger kids. But their sanctuary has already been breached once. . . Meanwhile, Alex, determined to find their parents, heads out into the darkness and devastation with Niko and some others in a recently repaired school bus. If they can get to Denver International Airport, they might be evacuated to safety. But the outside world is even worse than they expected. . .

I had a time where my problems got even worse when my friends left me out and treated me like nothing. But I still had hope, because I still had one true friend.

I moved three times in one school year. Every time my parents told me we were going to move, it was bad news to me because I had to say good bye to my new friends. During this school year, I still had hope that we would find a good place to settle down. I actually made some great friends when we settled down here in Washington.

A bunch of families from my church were all going camping at a great lake and I love inner tubing so I was really hoping that someone would bring a boat and inner tubes but no one had them and I was really hoping and trying up to the day we went that we would get them but we didn't.

My best friend was really depressed and had an eating disorder! Her other friends were being really mean! She wasn't letting me help her though. I kept hoping and praying that she would let me help her, and she did!!
