GIVEAWAY: #GabbyDuran & the Unsittables prize pack!

Though there are plenty of us adults who like young adult and middle grade reads just fine on our own, thank you very much. There are also those among you that are still YAs and MGers yourselves, and are looking for new things to read, and readers to connect with and talk to about them. And lastly, I'd imagine there are certainly many of you who read this blog (and others) because you have children in your life, and you want to keep up on things for them to read.  You may have already begun counting down the days until school lets out for the summer (so soon!), and you suddenly have an eager, energetic summer kid on your hands, and you're looking for things to keep them occupied...

About the Book:

Gabby Duran and the Unsittables by Elise Allen & Daryle Conners
Middle Grade/Fantasy, 208 pages
Expected publication: May 12th 2015 by Disney-Hyperion
Case File: The First Unsittable

Summary: The Association Linking Intergalatics and Earthlings (hereby known as A.L.I.E.N.) has a new member. After months of investigation, Gabby Duran, Associate 4118-25125A, has proven herself to be a babysitter extraordinaire. Her celebrity clients fly her around the country to care for their rambunctious little humans. Our spy, Associate 4118-23432B, otherwise known as Edwina, believes Gabby can be trusted with the truth: aliens are living among humans on Earth. And here at A.L.I.E.N we believe that even extraterrestrials need a babysitter now and then. No one was up to the task...until now.

After accepting the top-secret position, Edwina has paired our new associate up with her first charge, a little girl from the planet Flarknartia. The timing for associate 4118-25125A is less than ideal. It's a school day on Planet Earth, Gabby's audition for the solo part in the band is tonight, and this tiny alien is a bit more than meets the eye.

Can Gabby Duran, Associate 4118-25125A, First Sitter to the Unsittables, keep her otherworldly charge safe in the unpredictable halls of middle-school and keep A.L.I.E.N hidden?
