New York Times bestelling author Alan Gratz will be celebrating the launch of his latest young adult novel, Grenade, with a book talk and signing at Fiction Addiction on Sunday, October 7th at 2pm. This event is FREE and open to the public, but please RSVP to Fiction Addiction if you plan to attend.
Hideki lives with his family on the island of Okinawa, near Japan. When WWII crashes onto his shores, Hideki is drafted into the Blood and Iron Student Corps to fight for the Japanese army. He is handed a grenade and a set of instructions: Don’t come back until you’ve killed an American soldier.
Ray, a young American Marine, has just landed on Okinawa. This is Ray’s first-ever battle, and he doesn’t know what to expect — or if he’ll make it out alive. He just knows that the enemy is everywhere.
Hideki and Ray each fight their way across the island, surviving heart-pounding ambushes and dangerous traps. But then the two of them collide in the middle of the battle…
And choices they make in that single instant will change everything.
Alan Gratz, New York Times bestselling author of Refugee, returns with this high-octane story of how fear and war tear us apart, but how hope and redemption tie us together.

About Just Add Glitter by Angela DiTerlizzi:
Has the rainy day got you down?
Not feeling fancy in your gown?
Just add glitter!
It all starts with a mysterious mail delivery, a little girl with a big imagination, and a sprinkling of twinkling glitter. Before long there’s glitter here, glitter there—glitter, glitter EVERYWHERE! But just when she’s about to add more glitter, the little girl realizes maybe there is such a thing as too much bling when you and your best pal start to get lost in it…
