    We are currently between homes, living with the grandparents. My 12 and 9 yo kids are big fans and would really enjoy the escapism offered by a good book, while we continue to look for a new home.

    Because my kid just got his computer & Xbox taken away (failure to do/hand in homework) and he’s going to need something to keep him occupied. :D

  • Angelica Macklin

    My hubby is a huge fan and he’ll need something to read during all the holiday driving

    I actually would love to give this as a Giving Tree charity gift to a child in need of books.

    My daughter just discovered this book series and absolutely fell in love with it. We had to go online and order every available book in the series from our library. She started book one yesterday and is getting through that one very quickly. She would be beyond thrilled to win this book.

    My oldest has read all of the Alex Rider books so far and really loves them. I love a book that pulls me in like that, and love to see him find books that make him feel the same way.

    I discovered these with my little sister this summer. We found two copies of the first book at the library while she was visiting, and read simultaneously! It was such fun bonding. The new book would be fun to give her as a xmas/b-day gift…but I’d have to read it first :)

    My little brother needs this book because he’s never liked to read and is only now showing an interest. I honestly think he’d enjoy this!
