The Magnificent 12: The Call by Michael Grant


This is an interesting tale of a 12 year old boy who is just medium in everything: build, brains, ambition and even in his life. Nothing outstanding. So why would he be told he's one of the Magnificent 12? And how can the guy talking to him be three-thousand-years-old?

This is a Katherine Tegin Books publication and they sent me an ARC for review. (Thank you.)

One of the most interesting twists in this book is that Mack's worst enemy, a very big bully, suddenly becomes his protector because Mack saved his life. That's real handy for Mack, because his life suddenly becomes very dangerous, leaving medium way behind...

It's a fast paced action story for young adults aged 10+, and there is enough humor interspersed to keep it from becoming too intense.

If you would like my ARC of this book, follow the steps below:

1) Leave a comment here on the blog;

I'll pick a winner in about a week.

I would love to read this book. I'm always looking for new authors to read, and who doesn't LOVE a free book. Plus it would be my very first ARC!! Thanks for the consideration!!
