Eight Minutes, Thirty-Two Seconds Book Blast and Giveaway

Here's an interesting sci-fi thriller for the young adult crowd. I wouldn't have pictured this as for young adults from the cover. With that said, the giveaway associated to it has two winners, one getting an Amazon gift card and the other Starbucks. I believe both are open worldwide, though the Starbucks option could be US only. You have through 8/17 to enter.

Eight Minutes, Thirty-Two Seconds

Over eight billion people died when the world ended.

Two survived.

L and M don’t know why they’re alive. They don’t remember what happened. Addicted to a drug that kills them for eight minutes and thirty-two seconds, they risk the end of humanity in order to learn the truth.
