Release Day for Two Great Books and Giveaway of One: The Extraordinary Secrets of April, May & June by Robin Benway and I Am Number Four by Piitucus Lore aka James Frey and Jobie Hughs

Today is the release day of two really good books I was privileged to read. One is The Extraordinary Secrets of April, May & June by Robin Benway. This is the second book by the author who is a relative new comer to the YA genre. It tells the tale of three sisters with special powers: ability to see the future, ability to disappear and ability to read minds. They have to use these powers to help them navigate a tough year in their life, of which hell in high school is only one part. The author has a tremendous talent to write the teen voice. Awesome!

The second book and the one that will be given away is I Am Number Four. The alleged author is Pitticus Lore, but the true authors are James Frey of A Million Little Pieces fame and Jobie Hughs who is making his debut and is apparently the major contributor to the book. This is an exciting story that is the first of a six-book series. It is the story of teen aliens from the planet Lorien who live among us on Earth, attempting to blend in and escape the Mogadorians, a murderous race of aliens that have destroyed their planet. The teens are the only survivors of Lorien and they're being hunted. The movie is already in production for release in February 2011.

I've reviewed both books more fully on my blog. Stop by to check them out and enter the giveaway for a chance to win a good read.
