GIVEAWAY: Medina Hill

Now that you've had a chance to see my thoughts on Medina Hill, I'd like to give you a chance to win your copy of the book!

If you need a reminder here's the blurb:

In the grimy London of 1935, eleven-year-old Dominic Walker has lost his voice. His mother is sick and his father’s unemployed. Rescue comes in the form of his Uncle Roo, who arrives to take him and his young sister, Marlo, to Cornwall. There, in a boarding house populated by eccentric residents, Marlo, who keeps a death grip on her copy of The New Art of Cooking, and Dominic, armed with Incredible Adventures for Boys: Colonel Lawrence and the Revolt in the Desert, find a way of life unlike any they have known. Dominic’s passion for Lawrence of Arabia is tested when he finds himself embroiled in a village uprising against a band of travelers who face expulsion. In defending the vulnerable, Dominic learns what it truly means to have a voice.

Trilby Kent brilliantly handles a far-off time and place to present a story of up-to-the-minute relevance.

  1. I'm in because I can't resist the 1935 England setting. I also can't remember reading any YA historical fiction so I'm curious!

  2. I like the band of travelers. Whenever new people enter someones life interesting things happen.


  3. Oh, and you're giving it away, too! Awesome!
    I want to read it because, in general, I enjoy historical fiction. I like the idea about reading about different types of people living together in a boarding house. Sounds cool!

  9. Why I want to read this? I love a good historical fiction and the fact that it is set from a younger perspective makes it all the more interesting.
