Giveaway: Paper Hearts by S.R. Savell and Canary by Rachele Apline

I have two wonderful books to giveaway today, thanks to the wonderful people at Medallion Press.

Both of these books tell harrowing stories of two young girls in awful situations. In Paper Hearts, Michelle has to learn that even with all the negatives in life, there is always a shining glimmer of hope in the most unlikely of places. In Canary, Kate struggles to make her voice heard, even to those she loves the most, after experiencing a horrifying and terrifying ordeal.

Both of these books are simply amazing and should be read by those young, old, and everybody in between. Each girl in these two novels learn to become strong individuals and speak out for themselves. I found myself to be enraptured by their stories and pulling for them to overcome the obstacles life has placed in their paths.

My Review: Posted April 13, 2014
A pushy counselor, school bullies, a neglectful mother, and a dead father have ruined seventeen-year-old high school senior Michelle Pearce’s perspective on life. A social reject living in self-imposed exile, Michelle has little use for anything or anyone—until Nathaniel comes along. A high school dropout who works three jobs to care for his dying grandmother, he’s all but convinced Michelle that there is some good left in humanity.

And then humanity proves him wrong. The unforgivable happens, destroying Michelle’s new found faith in life and threatening to unravel a love in the making.

Title: Canary
Author: Rachele Apline
Series: Standalone
Pages: 486 (paperback)

Staying quiet will destroy her, but speaking up will destroy everyone.

Kate Franklin’s life changes for the better when her dad lands a job at Beacon Prep, an elite private school with one of the best basketball teams in the state. She begins to date a player on the team and quickly gets caught up in a world of idolatry and entitlement, learning that there are perks to being an athlete.

But those perks also come with a price. Another player takes his power too far and Kate is assaulted at a party. Although she knows she should speak out, her dad’s vehemently against it and so, like a canary sent into a mine to test toxicity levels and protect miners, Kate alone breathes the poisonous secrets to protect her dad and the team. The world that Kate was once welcomed into is now her worst enemy, and she must decide whether to stay silent or expose the corruption, destroying her father’s career and bringing down a town’s heroes.


Five winners will win a copy of Paper Hearts by S.R. Savell and Canary by Rachel Apline!
