Thanks to Jocelyn Kelley of Kelley & Hall Book Publicity, I am giving away 5 print copies of A Boy Called Duct Tape.
A Boy Called Duct Tape is the 2012 Juvenile Fiction title winner for the Pinnacle Book Achievement Award and the 2013 Young Adult Fiction winner of the eLit Gold Medal Award.
12-year old Pablo Perez is having a hard time. His mother is working for minimum wage, his sister has a bad leg due to the accident that took the life of his father and he gets picked on everyday for taping his shoes together because they keep ripping. He’s a boy called Duct Tape.
But his life turns around when he’s with his sister Pia and finds an 1879 gold coin while swimming to the bottom of Harper’s Hole. When Pablo purchases a one-dollar treasure map at a county fair that promises to lead him to Jesse James fortune, Pablo wonders if his gold coin and the map are in some way connected.
With the help of his sister, his cousin Kiki, and the eccentric Monroe who at first seems scary but soon turns out to be a great guide for the tween trio, they go in search of Jesse James’ fortune. This novel has everything an exciting adventure story needs: a page turning mystery, cruel villains, plot twists, and a likable boy at the heart of the novel. Fans of Indiana Jones, The Goonies and the wildly popular video game franchise, Uncharted, will all find something to love in this thrilling, fun novel.
