Urban Teen Fiction Flip Books Show Two Points of View | Giveaway

The “Grove Hill Giants” (Saddleback) is the follow-up series to the popular 2012 Lockwood Lions series which was the first “flip” book series made for YA readers, written with the point of view from two sides—the cheer squad and the football team. Want a different point of view?  Just flip the book… because every story has two sides.Flip Book covers

The Lockwood Lions’ crosstown rivals, the Grovehill Giants, seem to have it all. Or do they?  When the cheer squad and the football players get together, it always gets intense. But there are two sides to every story—whose side are you on?
