Giveaway: Under a Painted Sky by Stacey Lee!

Greetings, friends! We haven’t had a giveaway around here in a while, so I’m excited to offer you a chance to win an advance copy of Stacey Lee’s incredible debut YA historical novel, Under a Painted Sky.

Stacey and I share an editor, so I was lucky enough to get my hands on an ARC of her book a couple of months ago. I tore through this tale of adventure and friendship, and was awed by the author’s ability to bring a completely new twist to the Western genre. I couldn’t recommend it more highly. (And neither could Kirkus or Publishers Weekly, which both gave this book starred reviews!)

Under a Painted Sky by Stacey LeeA powerful story of friendship and sacrifice, for fans of Code Name Verity

Missouri, 1849: Samantha dreams of moving back to New York to be a professional musician—not an easy thing if you’re a girl, and harder still if you’re Chinese. But a tragic accident dashes any hopes of fulfilling her dream, and instead, leaves her fearing for her life. With the help of a runaway slave named Annamae, Samantha flees town for the unknown frontier. But life on the Oregon Trail is unsafe for two girls, so they disguise themselves as Sammy and Andy, two boys headed for the California gold rush. Sammy and Andy forge a powerful bond as they each search for a link to their past, and struggle to avoid any unwanted attention. But when they cross paths with a band of cowboys, the light-hearted troupe turn out to be unexpected allies. With the law closing in on them and new setbacks coming each day, the girls quickly learn that there are not many places to hide on the open trail.

This beautifully written debut is an exciting adventure and heart-wrenching survival tale. But above all else, it’s a story about perseverance and trust that will restore your faith in the power of friendship.

  1. Ah, I don’t read nearly enough “historical” fiction, this sounds great! It’s been catching my eye a ton lately (seriously, I featured the cover in a blog post).

    I love how original it sounds with a chinese main character, taking place in Missouri (which I live next to, in KS, and have been to MO a ton), and the two girls disguising themselves to go to the gold rush. It sounds so fascinating.
