In My Mailbox (1)

When I get books I hope to participate in this cool meme. It is set up by The Story Siren and she links every Sunday to bloggers and what they received to review. It just is kind of fun to browse around and see who has what. This week I was really excited to receive...

GREEN
by Laura Peyton Roberts
Published January 12th 2010 by Delacorte Books for Young Readers
Hardcover, 272 pages

Summary:
Turning thirteen starts off with a bang for Lily. Literally. A birthday present explodes on her porch . . . and soon after a trio of leprechauns (yes, leprechauns) appears in her bedroom. They whisk her away to a land of clover, piskies,(MPB note, I didn't type that wrong...the book actually says piskies on the back too....huh...) a new friend, a cute boy, and lots of glimmering, glittering gold. A world of Green.

It turns out that Lily, like her grandmother before her, is next in line to be keeper for the Clan of Green, and in charge of all their gold. That is, if she passes three tests. And she has to pass them. Because if she doesn’t she may never get to go home again. She’ll be stuck with the Greens.

Forever.

Anyone who knows me knows how much I LOVE St. Patrick's day, and thus I love a good leprechaun story! I'm really excited to get to this one!

It is a great cover! Simple, yet the old key gives it a mysterious element.

StorySiren - I actually got a book you want? Wow. Now I feel really super special! I am always so jealous of you and the great books you get. I love your blog!

Aimee, I am with you! I may be more Scottish that Irish, but St. Patty's day was always huge in my house as it was my dad's birthday. This year will be hard, but I am excited for it already thanks to this book!
