If you read my Bookshelf Tour Tag post last week, you might have noticed me mention being an advance reader for Jenny L. Cote’s newest book, The Voice, The Revolution, and the Key. If you don’t know what in the world I’m talking about, here’s the gist: often, authors will choose certain people to read their new, unreleased books. These “advance” readers read the entire book in a certain time frame of the author’s choosing (in my case, it’s a month). We catch any lingering typos or mistakes, advertise the book, and provide feedback that will be published in the novel once it is officially released.
Today, I was treated with a nice surprise…
I’m so excited to begin reading, and I’ll be sure to keep you updated on the rest of the advance reader process. Although you can’t get the book yet, here’s the official summary to get you pumped for it:
The Order of the Seven must help birth one nation under God by entering the lives of a unique generation of children chosen to become the Founding Fathers of the United States of America. Liz is given the assignment of helping Patrick Henry become the Voice of the Revolution, setting the entire war in motion. If Max can’t protect George Washington in the French and Indian War, the patriots will lose the Sword of the Revolution to lead them. Nigel must ensure that Benjamin Franklin’s kite-flying efforts succeed to turn the key to unlock American independence, and Al must gather intelligence right under the nose of King George III. Victory will be impossible without powerful ally France joining the fight, led by its patriotic son, the Marquis de Lafayette. But will Kate be able to protect the young Marquis? The fight for liberty will be costly with an Enemy determined to the give the patriots the other outcome – death.
Jenny L. Cote is an amazing author, and I can’t wait to delve deep into this new adventure that she has created. Hopefully you’ll check back in and see where this advance reader journey goes next!
The Voice, The Revolution, and The Key by Jenny L. Cote will be available in stores on August 15th, 2017.
