About the Book: Theo Mackey only remembers one thing for certain about the fire that destroyed his home: he lit the match.

Sure, it was an accident. But the blaze killed his mom and set his dad on a path to self-destruction. Everything else about that fateful night is full of gaping holes in Theo’s mind, for good reason. Maybe it’s better that way. As captain of the Ellis Hollow Diving Team, with straight A's and solid friends, he's only one semester away from securing a scholarship, and leaving his past behind.

But when a family history project gets assigned at school, new memories come rushing to the surface, memories that make him question what he really knows about his family, the night of the fire, and if he can trust anyone—including himself.
 


There will be 3 winners! 1 Winner will recieve a copy of Dive Smack and swag 
2 other winners will recieve swag!

About the Book: Todd Hewitt is the only boy in a town of men. Ever since the settlers were infected with the Noise germ, Todd can hear everything the men think, and they hear everything he thinks. 

Todd is just a month away from becoming a man, but in the midst of the cacophony, he knows that the town is hiding something from him -- something so awful Todd is forced to flee with only his dog, whose simple, loyal voice he hears too. With hostile men from the town in pursuit, the two stumble upon a strange and eerily silent creature: a girl. 

Who is she? Why wasn't she killed by the germ like all the females on New World? Propelled by Todd's gritty narration, readers are in for a white-knuckle journey in which a boy on the cusp of manhood must unlearn everything he knows in order to figure out who he truly is.
Make sure to check out all of the posts from Aug. 7-11! 
There will be 1 winner who will recieve all three books in ebook format!

About the Book:

No one but the dead dare venture Below . . .

The first volume in this thrilling trilogy opens on the barren plains of Below, where Hokk and his fox sidekick, Nym, live in exile amid the remnants of our modern age.

Overhead, on the floating islands of Above, Elia is trapped in a life of endless toil and drudgery as a laundress for the Mirrored Palace. To Elia, the islands edges are borders that no one dares cross until the ancient ritual that delivers the dead to Below. But a series of natural disasters rumbling through Above sends Elia s world crashing into Hokk s and she falls Below.

Their journey together will propel them across endless plains and through shattered cities in a centuries-old battle for the very earth and sky around them . . ."

Noteworthy experiences while reading this book: Well paced with wonderful characters! 

Do I Recommend this book? Yes if you love fantasies and dystopians and just something different then check this one out. 

Notes and Opinions: The first time I read this book ages ago I fell in love with the writing and the world. This second time around I loved it even better. I forgot how wonderful this world is with its above and below worlds.  The characters came alive on the page and this is still one of the best dystopian/fantaies I have read.  This series does not get the exposure that it should and everyone should read this one.  It wont let you down! This stories has wonderful pacing and the characters are just fabulous and alive.  

This is one story that will keep you on the edge of your seat through most of it.  As we are taken along for a ride with Elia.  

I have to say that even now my favriote character is Nym!  

Go Into This One Knowing: That once you start you wont be able to put it down!
