TANTALIZE: KIEREN'S STORY Graphic Novel by Cynthia Leitich Smith Giveaway!

I adore when I have a new book from this Austin author up for giveaway! Cynthia Leitich Smith has been at it again in her wonderful world of TANTALIZE, ETERNAL, and BLESSED, but this time it's in graphic novel format! And it's from the point of view of her main guy character, Kieren!

TANTALIZE: KIEREN'S STORY by Cynthia Leitich Smith, illustrated by Ming Doyle (Candlewick, August 23, 2011)

From Amazon:

Illustrated by hot new talent Ming Doyle, Cynthia Leitich Smith’s TANTALIZE is reimagined as a graphic novel— seen through Kieren’s werewolf eyes.

As a hybrid werewolf, Kieren is destined to join an urban Wolf pack and learn to master his shift. Soon, he’ll leave everything behind: home, school, his family, and Quincie, his human best friend . . . who’s beginning to be a whole lot more than a friend. For years, Kieren has managed to keep his desires— and his wolf— at bay. But when the chef at Quincie’ s family restaurant is brutally murdered, Kieren resolves to be there for her, even if it means being framed. Even if it means watching Quincie’s beloved restaurant morph into a vampire lair. But when the new chef begins wooing her, how long can Kieren control his claws? How long can he protect Quincie— and himself? In an elegant graphic edition featuring cinematic sequential art by debut artist Ming Doyle and lush, romantic cover art by Sam Weber , bestselling author Cynthia Leitich Smith re-envisions her delicious dark fantasy through wolfish eyes.

So our school library has no graphic novels, I am pretty sure I can change our librarian's mind about this, with Tantalize!
