photoSome dogs like to eat homework … ours likes to give it away. Just comment on this post and let us know what you think of Some New Trend (or anything, really), and we’ll put your name in the Dog Bowl of Magic and Literature. Juanita picks a new name each week, so you’ll have a new chance to win every Friday.

This week’s giveaway is Tracktown Summer by Elizabeth Holmes. Here’s the synopsis from the back of the book: Jake has felt fatherless ever since his parents separated, and so he can’t wait to spend the summer with his dad. But the house Dad rented is a shabby place next to the railroad tracks, with no friends and nothing to do. Then, through a pickup game of hoops, Jake befriends a neighbor boy. Adrian is charming at first, but soon Jake starts to sense a streak of desperation in him. Jake gets sucked into Adrian’s bizarre life, in which recklessness escalates to danger. Witnessing Adrian’s highly dysfunctional, sometimes violent, family gives Jake new perspective on his own situation.

The winner of last week’s giveaway, Geektastic, Stories from the Nerd Herd, edited by Holly Black and Cecil Castellucci, is … Amy Jo! Send an email to info@somenewtrend with your mailing address, and we’ll get your book in the mail soon.

If you’ve won a book but haven’t received it yet, be sure to let us know. Resend your address and we’ll double check the outgoing mail.
