Giveaway: Signed ARCHVILLAIN by Barry Lyga ARC

Welcome to Teach 8 YA Book Blog's first giveaway!
I have a SIGNED ARC (Advanced Reader's Copy) of Barry Lyga's new middle grades book, ARCHVILLAIN to for this contest.  It seems appropriate to read a story like this away around Halloween, so you have until October 23rd to enter.
Summary from back of the book:
Sometimes it's good to be bad.
Kyle Camden knows exactly where he was the night Mighty Mike arrived: sneaking around the fallow field behind Bouring Middle School, preparing one of his most ingenious pranks yet.
Which is why he couldn't tell anyone where he was.
Or what he saw.
Those lights everyone saw in the sky weren't tiny meteors burning up in the atmosphere. They were some kind of strange, supercooled plasma that bathed the entire field-including Kyle-in alien energies.
Unfortunately, the energies also brought Mighty Mike to Earth.
Kyle is the only one who knows that Mighty Mike is an alien. Everyone else thinks that Mike is just some kid who stumbled into the field, got beefed up on meteor juice, lost his memory, and decided to start rescuing kittens from trees. But Kyle knows the truth.
And he'll do anything in his power to stop Mighty Mike, even if it means being an Archvillain.

  1. Only 13-year-olds can enter? That seems kind of restrictive.

  2. Oops...just a typo! Must be at least 13 years old to enter. Thanks for catching my mistake - it's now been fixed.
