Giveaway: Mickey Bolitar series by Harlan Coben

September 12, 2012

Earlier this year I read, and enjoyed the first book in a new Young Adult series by Harlan Coben.  Shelter features Mickey Bolitar, the nephew of Coben’s popular character Myron Bolitar, and I really liked Mickey’s spunk and determination.  I’m thrilled to see he’s back in another book, Seconds Away!

Thanks to Penguin Teen, I’m giving away a copy of both Mickey Bolitar books plus a beautiful tote bag!  This is your chance to get in on the ground floor of a great new YA series.

About Shelter:

Mickey Bolitar’s year can’t get much worse. After witnessing his father’s death and sending his mom to rehab, he’s forced to live with his estranged uncle Myron and switch high schools. Fortunately, he’s met a great girl, Ashley, and it seems like things might finally be improving. But then Ashley vanishes. Mickey follows Ashley’s trail into a seedy underworld that reveals that Ashley isn’t who she claimed to be. And neither was Mickey’s father. Soon Mickey learns about a conspiracy so shocking that it leaves him questioning everything about the life he thought he knew.

About Seconds Away:

When tragedy strikes close to home, Mickey Bolitar and his loyal new friends—sharp-witted Ema and the adorkably charming Spoon—find themselves at the center of a terrifying mystery involving the shooting of their friend Rachel. Now, not only does Mickey have to continue his quest to uncover the truth about the Abeona Shelter, the Butcher of Lodz and the mysterious death of his father, he needs to figure out who shot Rachel—no matter what it takes.

Mickey has always been ready to sacrifice everything to help the people he loves. But with danger just seconds away, how can he protect them when he’s not even sure who—or what—he’s protecting them from?

    I love Harlan Coben and did not realize he had a new YA series – shows how long it’s been since I’ve been in an actual bookstore! Thanks for hosting such a fantastic giveaway!

    Amazingly I haven’t read anything by Harlan Coben. This sounds like a good opportunity to start at the beginning of a new series.

    Wow–I didn’t even know he had a YA series! Of course, I haven’t read *any* of his books…though I’ve told myself many times that I should.

    I bet my daughter might like this series.

    I just recently listened to Shelter on audio and I am reviewing it today. I love Harlan Coben! However I did not know that it was a second book (which explains why I didnt understand how Mickey was at Myrons). Now I want the other book and of course, since I collect Harlans books, Shelter as well in book format.
