Cover Reveal: The Alcatraz Escape by Jennifer Chambliss Bertman

Oh, the weather outside is frightful! Some of you are headed to Midwinter right now in the midst of horrible, terrible snows. I salute you, one and all.

To take your minds off your cancelled flights, let us pause a moment and consider Jennifer Chambliss Bertman’s clever and charming Book Scavenger series.
