Some wonderful book post landed on my doorstep at the weekend!  This is for a special book that I have once again been lucky enough to receive as part of a blog tour for Egmont Books.  The blog tour is run by The Write Reads and I am so grateful to both the publisher and The Write Reads for this amazing opportunity!  This children’s book already has film rights and the main character has already been cast! 😮  It sounds like an amazing story, it’s out in January, and I can’t wait to share my thoughts of it with you soon! 😀

Amari and the Night Brothers by B. B. Alston – Amari Peters knows three things.
Her brother Quinton has gone missing.
No one will talk about it.
His mysterious job holds a clue …
When Amari gets an invitation to the Bureau of Supernatural Affairs, she’s certain this is her chance to find her brother. But first she has to get her head around the new world of the Bureau, where mermaids, aliens and magicians are real, and her roommate is a weredragon.
Amari must compete against kids who’ve known about the supernatural world their whole lives, and when each trainee is awarded a special supernatural talent, Amari is given an illegal talent one that the Bureau views as dangerous.
With an evil magician threatening the whole supernatural world, and her own classmates thinking she is an enemy, Amari has never felt more alone. But if she doesn’t pass the three tryouts, she may never find out what happened to Quinton …


Doesn’t this sound amazing? 😀  I can’t wait to read this book and will share my review as part of the blog tour by The Write Reads, so look out for that starting in (I think) December.  In the meantime let me know what books you are looking forward to reading. 🙂
