The Body Electric by Beth Revis
Ella Shepherd can slip into other people’s minds. Using technology invented by her parents, Ella has the ability to experience–and influence–the memories of others.

Young Moon, Sami, and Simma by H.S. St Ours
Growing up in North Korea, in the days before her Father destroyed the world, Young Moon was happy. At least she thought she was, but that was so long ago and she was so very young.
All she wanted was to be left alone to talk to the visions in her drawings — visions that came to warn her of impending danger. But a chance word spoken by an angry classmate would force Young Moon’s family to flee to China, where she would witness her Father set in motion a world-shaking disaster of epic proportions.
Sami wasn’t born in the Five Tunnels. She’s traveled all over, even as far as the Northern caves beyond Eastport. Only nobodies went farther than that. It’s been almost a century since the sky fell and the world broke apart in a day, and still most folk spent their whole lives shielded by living stone. But now, nobodies and someones alike were disappearing, and voices came to her in the dark, warning her of great danger ahead. Sami seeks answers and uncovers a mystery that spans worlds.
Sami is Book 2 in the Water Worlds sci-fi adventure series.
Living under the water in tunnel Tee Two, with her mom and her mom’s boyfriend, Namid, frightened Simma no end. Any moment, she felt, the walls would split and the whole of the mile-wide river would rush in and drown her. Namid said she’d outgrow it but the dread only deepened in her. Then Sami came, as if in a dream, and told her to run! It was up to Simma to warn the Twelve Towns. War was coming and worlds were at stake!
Simma is a story of courage and hope in an age of reconstruction, and is Book 3 in the Water Worlds sci-fi adventure series.

Q & A with the organiser – Sarah Dalton
How can readers enter the YA Spring Fling giveaway?
Head over to my website Sarahdaltonbooks.com and find the page for the YA Spring Fling (handy hint, it’s HERE). Once you’re there you can browse through the books on offer, or check out more information about the participating authors.
You should see plenty of links prompting you to enter the giveaway. Simply fill out the Google document telling us which books you’d like to win, the format you prefer, and whether you would also like to win paperbacks and swag. It’s that simple. Pick the books you want and sign off.
How will I know I’ve won?
There are so many books on offer that I’d be surprised if you didn’t win something! So you will be hearing from us. J
After April 3rd, I will collate all the entries and pass them on to the participating authors. They will then choose the winners at random and Email the winners to let them know the good news.
Will my Email or personal details be used outside the giveaway?
Absolutely not. We’re all against spam and promise not to use your Email for anything other than contacting you as a winner. If you joined up to the YA Spring Fling mailing list you will receive one Email telling you the giveaway is open, and another warning you it is about to close. That’s it!
Is the giveaway open internationally?
Yes! But there are some paperbacks on offer that are region specific. Not all of our authors are sending paperbacks and swag internationally, purely because it costs us so much money and we ain’t made of it. 😉
We will ask for your country of residence in the Google document. That’s so we can work out the winners for region specific paperbacks more easily. Everything else is open internationally.
I have a question, who can I contact?
Me! Send me a message on Facebook. My Email might be clogged by answering author queries, so Facebook might be the easiest method.
Who can I tell about the giveaway? And what can I do to help spread the word?
You can tell everyone and anyone who might like YA books. If you’d like to spread the word it would be awesome if you could follow or like some of the authors and share their posts about the giveaway. You can find a full list of the participating authors and their social media links here.
GOOD LUCK EVERYONE! MAY YOU WIN MANY BOOKS!
