I was recently sent for review these two wonderful books:
I have recently finished reading The Legend of Mickey Tussler and am going to be starting The Sophomore Campaign shortly, so you will see both of those reviews here on Melissa's Midnight Musings within the next couple of weeks. I can't wait to share my thoughts on these wonderfully well written books with you.
What I'd like to share with you now is a fundraiser that promotes Autism awareness and advocacy whose proceeds will benefit Best Buddies International. Read more about that below:
Frank Nappi, the author of "The Legend of Mickey Tussler" and "Sophomore Campaign," is donating part of the proceeds from the books to Best Buddies International.
In a blog, Nappi said, "In an effort to support greater autism advocacy and awareness, I am pleased to announce that with the sale of each paperback copy of The Legend of Mickey Tussler or Sophomore Campaign between Friday, July 6 and Friday, July 27 on Amazon.com, I will donate a portion of the proceeds to Best Buddies International - a nonprofit organization dedicated to creating opportunities for one-to-one friendships, integrated employment and leadership development for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities."
The Mickey Tussler series chronicles the coming of age of a young pitching phenom with autism on a minor league baseball team during the 1940s.
