Celebrate Black Books Giveaway Hop

Sybil Nelson's Blog, author of the hilarious and most awesome Priscilla the Great series is hosting The Celebrate Black Books Giveaway Hop. I'm so thrilled to be a part of it because that means I get to share great books with black protagonists with one lucky person. It's hard to find books with black protagonists, especially in the weirdness genres I crave, so I'm also hoping to discover more. If you know any, let me know. I'm really sad more bloggers didn't join this hop.

Both titles I will be giving away are YA. The covers have bend marks, sorry, but the pages are in good condition.

Guardian of Eden - a heart wrenching family drama
Leslie DuBois

What would you do if you had one chance to kill the man who raped your twelve-year-old sister? No Judge. No Jury. No witnesses. Seventeen-year-old child prodigy Garrett Anthony has to answer that question. As he holds a gun to the head of his sister’s rapist, he flashes back to his traumatic past: five-years-old in a foster home, seven-years-old stealing food to survive, and sixteen-years-old visiting his black father in prison for the first time. After years of fighting to secure a stable life for him and his half-sister, he finally has a scholarship to a prestigious Washington DC private school and the love of a Virginia senator’s daughter. But this newfound and tenuous happiness begins to unravel once he reveals the family secret which is the catalyst to the painful decision he must make. Can he take the life of someone else and continue to live with himself?
