Sky On Fire Giveaway!

Sky On Fire (Monument 14 #2)
Emmy Laybourne

Hitting shelves May 28th, from Feiwel & Friends, a children's division of MacMillan...


Fourteen kids. One superstore. A million things that go wrong.

In this sequel to Monument 14, the group of survivors, originally trapped together in a superstore by a series of escalating disasters, has split in two. Most of the kids are making a desperate run on their recently repaired school bus for the Denver airport where they hope to reunite with their parents, be evacuated to safety, and save their dying friend.

But the world outside is dark and filled with dangerous chemicals that turn people into bloodthirsty monsters, and not all the kids were willing to get on the bus. Left behind in a sanctuary that has already been disturbed once, the remaining kids try to rebuild the community they lost. But when the issues are life and death, love and hate, who can you really trust?

If you were going to be stranded in a store, which would you choose?
My practical answer would be Target because they have everything I'd need to survive (food, books, clothes, beds...), but if I had it my way I'd probably choose either Barnes & Noble (for obvious reasons) or maybe a cosmetics store like Sephora because I already live in them anyway.
