Let the Countdown Begin! ARC Giveaway~ UNDER THE BOTTLE BRIDGE

Less than a month from now, my 4th book will be released!

This is a story full of legacy, traditional arts, mysterious messages, changing friendships, and hearth milk.

It's a story about an uncle trying hard to be a parent and a child trying hard to parent herself.

It's a story about impossible searches.

Most of all, it's the story of Minna Treat, a young girl with a big heart, a somewhat smart mouth, and a secret quest.

And there's a dog in it, too.

To enter the giveaway, tell me which type of traditional artisan you would be, given the chance (or tell me one that's not on the list!): 

Chandler (candlemaker)

A winner will be chosen on 8/11. UPDATE: Via Random.org, the winner of the ARC is Faith Hough! Congrats, Faith! DM me on Twitter and let me know your preferred shipping address. The next giveaway will be on 8/16 over at From the Mixed-Up Files of Middle Grade Authors.

In the weeks leading up to Gilbreth, New York’s annual AutumnFest, twelve-year-old woodcraft legacy Minna Treat is struggling with looming deadlines, an uncle trying to hide Very Bad News, and a secret personal quest. When she discovers mysterious bottle messages under one of the village’s 300-year-old bridges, she can’t help but wonder who’s leaving them, what they mean, and, most importantly…could the messages be for her?

Along with best friend Crash and a mystery-loving newcomer full of suspicious theories, Minna is determined to discover whether the bottles are miraculously leading her toward long-lost answers she’s been looking for, or drawing her into a disaster of historic proportions.
