Orchards (see the book trailer here) to middle or high school students, or teachers, librarians or parents of middle or high schools students. I will mail the copies to addresses anywhere in the world. To qualify, please leave a comment on this blog post below (these will be moderated) and include a few words about why you'd like to receive a copy of Orchards. I will draw five names on September 10 sometime in the evening EDT (morning September 11 Japan time). UPDATE: Comment period extended through September 30, 2011.
