Congratulations to Alyssa Annico! You've won One Plastic BagPlease send us a DM on Twitter or an email to publicityinfo@lernerbooks.com with the subject line "Free Book Friday" and your mailing address so we can get your book in the mail.

This week, enter to win Place Hacking: Venturing Off Limits, a fascinating look at urban explorers who bend the rules a bit.


Leaping from the Eiffel Tower in a wingsuit. Scaling Shanghai Tower, one of the world's tallest buildings. Camping on the roof of Philadelphia's abandoned Eastern State Penitentiary. These scenarios are real examples of the recreational activity of place hacking: climbing, wading, jumping, or even ironing your way into prohibited or obscure spaces.

Why do people do it? Is it the exhilaration of trespassing? Is it discovering a new perspective? Is it roving through your surroundings in an unpredictable manner? Place hackers say it's all these things—and more. In Place Hacking, Michael J. Rosen explores the experience and mindset behind place hacking. 


Packed with stunning pictures, this is a young adult nonfiction title not to be missed.
