Exclusive Trailer Reveal: Mercy Rule (Tom Leveen), Plus Giveaway!

MercyRule

Today we're excited to share the trailer for Mercy Rule!

Read on for more about author Tom Leveen, and his book, plus the trailer & giveaway!

 

 

Meet Tom Leveen!

Tom Leveen is the author of nine teen novels, including his most recent titles Hellworld and Shackled; Zero, an ALA Best Fiction for Young Adults 2013; and Sick, a YALSA Quick Pick 2014. He is a former high school teacher, a rocking and frequent speaker at schools and conferences, and an advocate against teen bullying and suicide. Tom lives and writes full-time in Phoenix, Arizona.

Meet Mercy Rule!

Danny’s parents yanked him out of art school, his real school. Now he’s starting sophomore year at the public high school. The only good thing about this school is Cadence, a cute freshman who loves punk rock. But even meeting her can’t make up for all the crap he gets from the meat-head athleaders.

Brady just wants to get out. Go to college, play football, maybe reach the NFL. He definitely wants to stop waiting for his deadbeat mother to get it together. It all adds up to a lot of stress. So who can really blame him when he and the football team turn their aggressions on the new freak?

Coach turns a blind eye to his players’ infractions—because this year, they’re going to States. But maybe if Coach had paid more attention, he could have caught it before it all happened. Maybe it could have been avoided.

Maybe.

With quick cuts between a large cast of unforgettable characters, and razor-sharp plotting, Tom Leveen takes readers on a countdown to an inevitable, horrifying act. This gripping novel offers an intense, smart perspective on the tragic, toxic mindsets behind the celebrated American sport and the monsters it creates.
