Giveaway: THREATENED by Eliot Schrefer (Signed ARC)

ENDANGERED by Eliot Schrefer was my favorite YA book of 2013. When I heard that he was going to be writing a whole series of books on the four great apes, I was so excited because I love his writing so much. I was able to get an early copy of the second one about chimpanzees, THREATENED, at the NCTE Convention, and then they had copies available at ALAN also since Eliot was on a panel there. Hearing him speak about his research process for his books, I was inspired to tweet this thought:
After the panels at the ALAN Workshop, the authors are available for silent signings. Since I had two copies of THREATENED, I asked Eliot to sign the second one for a giveaway on my blog, which he was happy to do.

A bit about THREATENED...and the entry form below.


Author: Eliot Schrefer
Publisher: Scholastic
Release Date: February 25, 2014
Number of Pages: 288

Into the jungle. Into the wild. Into harm's way.
        When he was a boy, Luc's mother would warn him about the "mock men" living in the trees by their home -- chimpanzees whose cries would fill the night.
        Luc is older now, his mother gone. He lives in a house of mistreated orphans, barely getting by. Then a man calling himself Prof comes to town with a mysterious mission. When Luc tries to rob him, the man isn't mad. Instead, he offers Luc a job.
        Together, Luc and Prof head into the rough, dangerous jungle in order to study the elusive chimpanzees. There, Luc finally finds a new family -- and must act when that family comes under attack.
        As he did in his acclaimed novel Endangered, a finalist for the National Book Award, Eliot Schrefer takes us somewhere fiction rarely goes, introducing us to characters we rarely get to meet. The unforgettable result is the story of a boy fleeing his present, a man fleeing his past, and a trio of chimpanzees who are struggling not to flee at all.
