Hey everyone! I have a signed paperback copy of The Forsaken by Lisa Staase plus a signed poster from the Spark A Reaction YA Panel of The Uprising by Lisa Staase. I do want to let you know that the poster was hung up on the walls by tape during the YA Panel and there is tape marks on the back side. The front side though looks great. The staff at the library gave me the poster after the event and I was able to get it signed! And the poster is pretty huge! United States entries only!

Book Synopsis (Goodreads):
As an obedient orphan of the U.N.A. (the super-country that was once Mexico, the U.S., and Canada), Alenna learned at an early age to blend in and be quiet—having your parents taken by the police will do that to a girl. But Alenna can’t help but stand out when she fails a test that all sixteen-year-olds have to take: The test says she has a high capacity for brutal violence, and so she is sent to The Wheel, an island where all would-be criminals end up.
The life expectancy of prisoners on The Wheel is just two years, but with dirty, violent, and chaotic conditions, the time seems a lot longer as Alenna is forced to deal with civil wars for land ownership and machines that snatch kids out of their makeshift homes. Desperate, she and the other prisoners concoct a potentially fatal plan to flee the island. Survival may seem impossible, but Alenna is determined to achieve it anyway.
