Read Zoe's review of The Blackthorn Key by Kevin Sands—and then enter for your chance to WIN a copy!

Hey Zoe, tell us about the book!

The Blackthorn Key is about a boy named Christopher Rowe who wants to become an apothecary when he finds out that his master, Benedict Blackthorn, is dead along with many other apothecaries. Christopher and his friend Tom follow the clues to solve the mystery.

So, what did you think?

What I liked about this book is that every chapter, there was a new mystery.  And you wanted to read more to find out what would happen next. What I didn’t like about the book is that I think there were too many characters and it was sometimes hard to follow.

But I think other kids would want to read this book because it’s a real page-turner. Plus if you like a good mystery, you’re in for a treat!

Did you know?

This is the first book in the Blackthorn Key series. The second book, The Mark of the Plague, comes out this September.

Here's your chance to WIN!

THIS CONTEST IS NOW CLOSED. CONGRATS TO THE WINNERS: STANLEY KAMPOURIS, REBECCA HURLEY, RYAN C., LUCAS WAKIL, AND NICOLE J.!

We've got five copies of The Blackthorn Key to give away!

For your chance to win one, just tell us: What book are you most excited to read this summer?

Answer in the comments below.

Contest is open to residents of Canada only and closes on Monday, July 11 at 11:59PM EST. Winners will be randomly chosen. Prizes courtesy of Simon & Schuster Canada. Full contest rules and regulations can be seen here.
