I would love to register for the contemporary mid-grade collection. I am a school counselor in an elementary school that has a Battle of the Books team. They read and compete against other students who prepare for this annual contest. Last year, I helped by reading one of the books on the list and preparing a set of questions for the contestants.

Thanks for this generous offer.

Book giveaway
I would love to win either of the mid-grade sets of books, fantasy or contemporary, for out Lunch Bunch Book Club that we run with our fifth graders. Thanks for the opportunity.

What a great contest! The book club in my school library (Westbrook High School in Maine) is just getting going again. Interest waned last year, but this year the student's are asking for it to be brought back. I would love to reward their enthusiasm with a set of books. They tend to read mostly contemporary, so either YA contemporary 1 or 2 would be great. It would also be fun to hook them on fantasy, so we'd like to be in the running for YA fantasy as well.

If we win, please contact me at my personal email megan @ meganfrazer.com

This is so generous, awesome and creative! I would love to have the chance to win the MG Contemporary pack, which feels like the best fit for kids in South Los Angeles - this is for Beyond Shelter's library and community programs at Broadway Village II - a large apartment complex and neighborhood resource center on the corner of 51st/Broadway in S. Los Angeles. The center has counseling, family programs and after-school homework, reading and tutoring. email me at my work email - acasil@beyondshelter.org I'll have to ask about what the teens would like or tell them for the YA packs if possible - I think any/all would be good for the older teens right now.

Mid-Grade Contemporary Pack
I am the librarian at a private K-8 school, trying to stir up more interest in reading for our 5th - 8th graders. To that end, I am starting a middle-school book club, and some of the books in the Mid-Grade Contemporary Pack would be awesome to try out. I have heard good reviews about some of these, particularly The Reinvention of Edison Thomas.
