Superhot Austin Authors Part 1 - BRAINS FOR LUNCH ARC Giveaway

For the next two weeks, I'm featuring some of Austin's best. See, we here in Austin have one of the best writing communities in the world, and I'm going to prove it to you by giving away four hot ARCs in the next two weeks from Austin kidlit authors. These are four of the best books you could hope to read this fall/winter, so enter now and retweet often :)

Okay, we're starting the Superhot Austin Authors Giveaway with...

BRAINS FOR LUNCH: A ZOMBIE NOVEL IN HAIKU?! written by K. A. Holt, illustrated by Gahan Wilson (Roaring Brook Press, August 2010)

best cover ever...

I adore this book. I adore the author. It's got one of the most clever premises around, and the artwork is to die for. (note: the artwork is not all present in the ARC). But you don't even have to take my word for it. Check out the fantastic book trailer designed by the author herself.

From Amazon:

The difference being that this middle school novel is written entirely in Haiku. Loeb, its zombie protagonist has a problem: the object of his affection, Siobhan, is a lifer (i.e. human). What to do? In scenes set around a lunch table (the menu: brains) and around the school, eyes roll and jaws drop (literally). Also featured in the cast of characters is Carl, a chupacabra (bloodsucking critter) and Mrs. Fincher, a sympathetic and seductive librarian.
