Y’all, it’s been a long time since we’ve had a giveaway ’round these parts. So I’m super excited that we have not one but two books to give away, and even better, they’re both by award-winning author Cynthia Leitich Smith.

Harvest House takes place in the same world as Hearts Unbroken, which followed Louise Wolfe, a Native teen navigating the treacherous waters of high school and first love. (Now you can see why we obviously had to offer two books!)

Here’s the dish on Harvest House:

Deftly leading readers to the literary crossroads of contemporary realism and haunting mystery, Cynthia Leitich Smith revisits the world of her American Indian Youth Literature Award winner Hearts Unbroken. Halloween is near, and Hughie Wolfe is volunteering at a new rural attraction: Harvest House. He’s excited to take part in the fun, spooky show—until he learns that an actor playing the vengeful spirit of an “Indian maiden,” a ghost inspired by local legend, will headline. Folklore aside, unusual things have been happening at night at the crossroads near Harvest House. A creepy man is stalking teenage girls and young women, particularly Indigenous women; dogs are fretful and on edge; and wild animals are behaving strangely. While Hughie weighs how and when to speak up about the bigoted legend, he and his friends begin to investigate the crossroads and whether it might be haunted after all. As Moon rises on All Hallow’s Eve, will they be able to protect themselves and their community? Gripping and evocative, Harvest House showcases a versatile storyteller at her spooky, unsettling best.

Um, yes please?!! I can already tell that Hughie’s gonna get a BFF charm from us. Also, is it weird that now I want to get all of my Halloween decorations back out?

To enter the giveaway, leave a comment and let us know how you feel about haunted houses in general.

Please note this giveaway is open to U.S. residents only.
