Gringolandia Teen YA Book Tour begins October 29
October 29, 2009 is the beginning of the Teen YA Book Tours. What makes this book tour exceptional is that each blog this author will visit is run by a teenager. Fabulous teens doing fantastic things with books, reading, and reviewing. Each teen has their unique view on the world of books and invite everyone on this tour and to their blog to learn that Teens are hot on what makes good reading fun.
Thank you to each and every one of you who are participating and wanted to participate in this book tour. You have given insight and a fresh perspective to the world of books that I find invigorating. Thank you for honoring me with your involvement in this event.
Now for the show:
There will be an autographed book given to the lucky person picked from the people who leave a comment with their email addy at each blog. Thank you to the author for this wonderful opportunity.
A brief description of the book:
Though haunted by memories of his father's arrest in Pinochet's Chile, Daniel Aguilar has made a new life for himself in the United States--far from politics. But when his father is released, Daniel sees what years of prison and torture have done. Trying to reach his father, Daniel, along with his "gringa" girlfriend, finds himself in the democracy struggle of the country he thought he left behind.
