S.O.S Book of the Week

The S.O.S Book of the Week is where I let you in on what new releases I'm looking forward to! S.O.S comes from the term 'Strict on Sale'. It's bookseller speak for a title that you can't sell before a specific date-- think Harry Potter. While the books I have here may not be S.O.S titles specifically, they are all new!

The S.O.S Book of the Week is:

Taken from Goodreads, "When schoolboy Tom Oakley discovers he can transport himself through time, he draws the attention of evil men who seek to bend history to their will. Tom's family are obliterated and he soon faces an impossible choice: To save the world he must sacrifice his family."

Author Richard Denning is coming to the blog early February to promote 'Tomorrow's Guardian'. This book, a time travel adventure reminiscent of DJ MacHale's 'Pendragon' series, is a fun read for 'inbetweeners'-- those kids who are just growing out of traditional Juvi books, but aren't ready for hardcore YA title. (I've started it already... Though I'm not done yet, so it still fits in with the S.O.S requirements!)

I've read time travel books before and typically get hooked by them. The perfect example being the before mentioned 'Pendragon' series. 'Tomorrow's Guardian' seems like it will be an exciting romp through time!  For more on this title, come back 2/8/11 for a review and a quick Q/A with the author!
