Middle Grade Monday – Ninja Librarian!
So, you know when you’re paging through the offerings on NetGalley or Edelweiss and a book just jumps off the electronic shelf at you? Or maybe you don’t? Did you know you can get free electronic review copies here or here? Especially if you’re a librarian. So this just jumped at me when I saw it – I’m going to leave you to your own assumptions…
Luckily for me (and for you), because I requested a preview copy, I was invited to take part in the Ninja Librarians Recon Team. I think I’m a week behind, but today I will be sharing with you an excerpt from the book, and a sneaky peek at the book trailer – enjoy!
