Welcome to DAY OPHIUCHUS of 13 Days of THE 13TH SIGN Preorder Contest! OPHUICHUS is traditionally considered to be the MISSING sign of the zodiac – the mysterious sign that throws us all out of whack! OPHIUCHUS characteristics include: impulsive, jovial, flamboyant, irresponsible, rebellious, and good-humored.

(Want to learn more about your 12-sign horoscope, your 13-sign horoscope, and which horoscope sign you ACT like? Take THE 13TH SIGN quiz!)

Young Adult Book Central is happy to host Day Nine of this contest!

So. What is this contest all about?
If you preorder a copy of THE 13TH SIGN by Kristin O’Donnell Tubb, you will be entered into a contest! Where you can WIN THINGS! And there are new prizes every day!

And. EVERY preorder will be *matched* by a $1.00 donation to RIF, a literacy program committed to placing books in the hands of kids who need them most.

About the book:
What if there was a 13th zodiac sign? 


You’re no longer Sagittarius, but Ophiuchus, the healer, the 13th sign. 


Your personality has changed. So has your mom’s and your best friend’s. 


What about the rest of the world? 


What if you were the one who accidentally unlocked the 13th sign, causing this world-altering change, and infuriating the other 12 signs?  


Jalen did it, and now she must use every ounce of her strength and cunning to send the signs back where they belong. Lives, including her own, depend upon it.

-zodiac charm - sign of your choice
