Contest: Neil Armstrong
This time I am giving away an ARC of a children's book recommended for ages 8-12: Neil Armstrong is My Uncle and Other Lies Muscle Man McGinty Told Me by Nan Marino. The cover of the ARC shows a reduced version of the actual cover, shown in the picture.
Contest will run until Dec. 4, with the winner randomly chosen and announced on Dec. 5. This contest is open to US and Canada only. Sorry, but International postage is too expensive for me.

You can read my review of the book here and see how much I enjoyed it. Here is the publisher's summary:
"Muscle Man McGinty is a squirrelly runt, a lying snake, and a pitiful excuse for a ten-year old......the problem is that no one knows it but me. In the entire town of Massapequa Park, only I can see him for what he really is. A phony.
It's the summer of 1969, and things are not only changing in Tamara's little Long Island town, but in the world. Perhaps Tamara could stand to take one small step toward a bit of compassion and understanding? A terrific debut novel with truly vivid characters and a wonderful voice.
