The Cavendish Home for Boys and Girls by Claire Legrand
Victoria hates nonsense. There is no need for it when your life is perfect. The only smudge on her pristine life is her best friend Lawrence. He is a disaster—lazy and dreamy, shirt always untucked, obsessed with his silly piano. Victoria often wonders why she ever bothered being his friend. (Lawrence does, too.)
But then Lawrence goes missing. And he’s not the only one. Victoria soon discovers that Mrs. Cavendish’s children’s home is not what it appears to be. Kids go in but come out . . . different, or they don’t come out at all.
If anyone can sort this out, it’s Victoria, even if it means getting a little messy.
Now, hold all that information tight in that awesome brain of yours. You’ll need to remember it for the upcoming quiz!
But wait, there’s more! ANOTHER giveaway!
Updated (5/8): And the winner is . . .
Congratulations, Linda! I will contact you via email shortly.
Thanks to everyone who participated — in both the YAmazing Race with MGnificent Prizes and my own giveaway! Also, after reading through all your comments about what creeps you out, I’m seriously sleeping with the light on tonight!
See, there are a lot of bugs in Cavendish. And they’re not very nice. In fact, they’re downright gross and creepy. (I have this phobia about bugs, especially beetle-type bugs, so what better way to overcome that than to be alone in the middle of the night, in the dark, writing about swarms of them?? Oh, the logic of writers.)
ANYWAY. I have a couple of bugs here that are the exact opposite of gross and creepy. In fact, they are quite adorable and I love them so much that I kind of want to keep them for myself but I won’t. Nay, they are for you! WHAT? It’s my birthday and I’m giving presents to other people?? I KNOW, IT’S CRAZY AROUND HERE.
The first one is named Vincent. Here he is:
And here’s his buddy Jared:
And here they are together (they be rollin’):
(I found these bugs, by the way, at this Etsy shop, Gloombug.)
For a chance to win one of these two bugs, simply comment below and tell me what creeps YOU out — that’s it! This giveaway — like the YAmazing Race — ends Tuesday May 8 at noon EST. I’ll announce the two winners that afternoon!
