Another giveaway and still more to follow!

(Scroll to the bottom to enter this giveaway!)


Alligators Overhead

Twelve-year-old Pete Riley thought being suspended from school was bad, but that’s nothing compared to what happens when a legendary mansion reappears after being gone a hundred years.  When the mysterious, haunted mansion pops up next door, the backwater town of Hadleyville is transformed from boring to bizarre. Pete discovers he’s living among a sadly out of practice coven of witches, his Aunt Lizzie is the leader and the Ornorfree alligators are the witches’ familiars. These swamp animals are in danger of extinction if Aunt Lizzie’s Save the Ornorfree Committee can’t find legal ways to stop developers from destroying another chunk of the swamp. He's struggling to make sense of what’s happening around him when he discovers he might have inherited the family tendency toward witchcraft, but his spells aren’t any better than the out-of-practice witches. When they work some old witchcraft spells, they vanish. He’s scared his spells won’t do much better, but he and his one friend, Weasel, are the only hope for the fragile swamp ecology. It’s up to Pete to harness what he’s come to know are his own strange powers, bring back the Hadleyville witches, and stop the bulldozers.

 
About The Author

A native Californian, C. Lee McKenzie loves to do three things: write, hike and practice yoga. She wrote her first young adult novel, Sliding on the Edge, after reading a news article about "self-abuse" among ivy league students. It was so disturbing to think young people needed to inflict pain on themselves to cope with their lives that she finally had to write about it. It turned out to be a fictionalize account that she hopes offers some insights into the growing problem. Her second novel, The Princess of Las Pulgas, deals with a young girl's family in distress. Alligators Overhead is her first published Middle Grade novel.
