Drumroll please - winners for MG book giveaway

My first giveaway features two books I have recently reviewed. I used Virtual Dice on to make the selections, as I didn't have a hat handy.

Tom Sawyer and the Ghosts of Summer12-year-old Matt Lively is obsessed with trying to somehow stretch time to make summer last indefinitely. Convinced he is living the ideal time of life-in Missouri,1950, between the 7th and 8th grade-he longs to experience extraordinary adventures before he is forced to confront high school, and eventually, boring adulthood. Along with his best friends, Rob Linehart and Wally Carter, Matt begins the summer with pranks, problems and fun. A mysterious and ominous tramp, Thatcher, accosts Matt and Rob and tells them things he should have no way of knowing. As Thatcher captures the boys' attention, he invites them back in time to save a life or two and recover a treasure, but mostly to change history in a way that will preserve The Adventures of Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn for posterity. Join Matt, Rob and Wally on their time-traveling adventure of self-discovery.

Grey Griffins: The Clockwork Chronicles #1: The Brimstone KeyA brand new adventure starring The Grey Griffins! Max---the leader Natalia---the brains Ernie---the changeling Harley---the muscle A year ago, the Grey Griffins were just regular kids from Avalon, Minnesota. That was before they learned about the existence of evil fairies, werewolves, and other things that go bump in the night. Now they are monster-hunters, celebrated heroes, and allies to the legendary Templar knights---but even heroes have to go to school. When the Griffins enroll at Iron Bridge Academy, a school to train young recruits in the fight against the forces of evil, they find themselves at the center of a whole new adventure.
