Bestselling YA author Michael Grant is in Australia and New Zealand this May to promote Front Lines, the first book in his blockbuster new YA series, Soldier Girl. I’m very excited to be part of Michael Grant’s Australia and NZ blog tour to promote his new book, Front Lines. Join me on Thursday 12 May for a special guest post from Michael Grant and a review of Front Lines. Here are the other awesome blogs and bloggers that are part of the blog tour:
Check out the cover, blurb and book trailer for Front Lines below:
It’s 1942. The fate of the world rests on a knife’s edge. And the soldiers who can tip the balance . . . are girls.
A court decision makes women subject to the draft and eligible for service. The unproven American army is going up against the greatest fighting force ever assembled, the armed forces of Nazi Germany. Three girls sign up to fight. Rio Richlin, Frangie Marr, and Rainy Schulterman are average girls, girls with dreams and aspirations, at the start of their lives, at the start of their loves. Each has her own reasons for volunteering: Rio fights to honor her sister; Frangie needs money for her family; Rainy wants to kill Germans. For the first time they leave behind their homes and families—to go to war. These three daring young women will play their parts in the war to defeat evil and save the human race.
As the fate of the world hangs in the balance, they will discover the roles that define them on the front lines. They will fight the greatest war the world has ever known. But not everyone believes that the girls should be on the front lines of war.
Now Rio and her friends must fight not only to survive, but to prove their courage and ingenuity to a sceptical world.
