How does this work:

***STARTING 3/21***Pick up your copy of the book from the 2nd Floor Kid’s Desk: Mon.-Thurs. 10-8:30 PM, Fri. & Sat. 10-5 PM,

Read the book and show up to the in person discussion on Tues. April 25th from 5:00-6:00 PM and you get to keep the book! (If you don’t show up, you have to return the book, to be fair).

The first 12 teens to sign up AND pickup their book will get finished hardcover copies. Waitlisted teens are welcome to check out a print library copy and attend the event!

Due to high demand for this title, we ask that you pickup your book within 5 days of registering, or your book to keep might go to another teen.

I promised my mother I would never come to Bato-Ko…and yet here I am.

Narra Jal is one of the cursed, cast aside her whole life, considered unlucky. But with her mother’s life on the line, she will return to the city where she was born to face the trials: a grueling, bloodthirsty series of challenges designed to weed out the weak, the greedy, and the foolish. Trials to select the next ruler of Tigang.

Narra has nothing. No weapons. No training. No magic. No real chance of leaving with her life. Just her fierce grit and a refusal to accept the destiny she’s been handed. Even the intense, dark-eyed Guardian she feels a strangely electric connection with cannot help her. Narra is on her own. But she’ll show everyone what the unlucky can do.

Let the bloodbath begin.
