Welcome to the Halloween edition of the YAmazing Race with MGnificent prizes! The race starts Monday afternoon, so come back after your carbo-loading to start the race.
You've reached the CHAINED stop on The YAmazing Race with MGnificent prizes, a whirlwind Internet contest featuring 50 debut authors and prize packs with signed books, gift certificates, swag, and more. Don't worry if you just happened upon this page and are a little confused now. See the Apocalypsies post to start from the beginning and read the complete rules.
But, if you're ready to get going, stretch out your hamstrings and take a candy break while you read a little about CHAINED:
Ten-year-old Hastin’s sister has fallen ill, and his family must borrow money to pay for her care in the hospital. To work off the debt, Hastin leaves his village in northern India to work in a faraway jungle as an elephant keeper. He thinks it will be an adventure, but he isn’t prepared for the cruel circus owner. The crowds that come to the circus see a lively animal who plays soccer and balances on milk bottles, but Hastin sees Nandita, a sweet elephant and his best friend, who is chained when she’s not performing and punished until she learns her tricks perfectly. With the help of Ne Min, a wise old man who seems to know all about elephants, Hastin protects Nandita as best as he can. Still he wonders–will they both survive long enough to escape?
If you're ready for the next stop on this leg of the race, go visit Tiffany Schmidt and find out more about her debut novel, SEND ME A SIGN.
Thanks for playing!
