It’s the middle of July. Baseball fans everywhere know that means it’s time for the All-Star Game and short break from regularly scheduled baseball games across the United States. For non-loving baseball peeps, you can just keep on enjoying your summer as you have been: curled up with your favorite book, sipping cold lemonade, and relaxing by the pool. However you want to celebrate this week, please also join in the fun with young adult author Margo L. Dill as she holds a contest and book sale! 
 
Why during All-Star Game Week?
 
Great question! Margo’s young adult novel, Caught Between Two Curses (Rocking Horse Publishing, March 2014), is the story of 17-year-old Julie Nigelson, who is cursed. So is her entire family. And it’s not just any-old-regular

curse, either—it’s strangely connected to the famous “Curse of the Billy

Goat” on the Chicago Cubs, hence the All-Star baseball week celebration.

Julie must figure out this mystery while her uncle lies in a coma

and her entire love life is in ruins: her boyfriend Gus is pressuring

her to have sex, while her best friend Matt is growing more attractive

to her all the time.

Somehow, Julie must figure out how to save her uncle, her family’s future, and her own love life—and time is running out! 

 
What have people been saying about Margo’s book?
 
Here are a few lines from a couple reviews on Amazon.com:
 
“This book is one of the best I have read in a long time. Once I opened it up I could not stop until I was finished.”  ~Janet Cannon
 
 “A baseball mystery and a contemporary, heartfelt romance, CAUGHT BETWEEN

TWO CURSES is sure to score big with the young teen audience!” ~Cathy C. Hall

 
“I definitely recommend this to young adults, but

really any adult because it’s a story that keeps you interested and

will stay with you long after you finish.” ~Amie Merz
