Morning all!

SAM SAVES THE NIGHT, Shari Simpson, Sleepwalkers, Ghosts, Girl, Boy, Puppeteer, Banner

A sleepy welcome to the Blog Tour for Sam Saves The Night by Shari Simpson which is stopping by my blog today! So excited I can be part of this tour as this book sounds amazing. Sleepwalking? Battles? Dreams? Staying out all night? Yes!

For today’s tour I got an excerpt, a giveaway (sorry guys, US only), and of course book/author information. Be sure to also check the others that participate in this tour, I got this and next week posted.

Let’s get started~

SAM SAVES THE NIGHT, Shari Simpson, Sleepwalkers, Ghosts, Girl, Boy, Puppeteer,What would you do if you could stay out all night and not get in trouble?

Thirteen-year-old Sam has no friends, but you can’t really blame her. She lives her life in a state of chronic exhaustion thanks to her nightly sleepwalking jaunts, which include trips to the store, treehouse-building projects, and breaking-and-entering escapades-none of which she remembers in the morning. Her condition is taking its toll on her family (and her life), so when her mom takes her to see a wacky strip-mall sleep specialist, Sam is wary, but 100 percent in.

The night after the doc works his mojo, Sam wakes up outside her body, watching herself sleep. FREAKY! But once she gets over the panic attack, she realizes there’s a whole world of detached-souls out there, called SleepWakers-cliques of kids like the Achieves, who use their sleep time to learn new things; the Numbs, who eat junk food and play video games all night long, and the OCDeeds who search for missing things and organize other people’s stuff. And then there are the Mean Dreams, led by Madalynn Sucret, the nicest girl in Sam’s school, who shows Sam that she can use her power to get back at a bully who’s been tormenting her. Sam is intrigued-until it becomes clear that Madalynn is the real bully and the “tormentor” is just, well… sad. Now Sam is faced with uniting the various tribes of SleepWakers to fight back against Madalynn and the Mean Dreams in the most epic battle the night has ever seen.

on his face that Sam recognized. It was the “I can fix this” look that she’d seen on the faces of various pediatricians, psychiatrists, psychologists, principals, parents, police, palm readers, and even one phrenologist who swore that finger- ing the bumps on her skull would unlock the mysteries of her sleeping mind. All that experiment did was unlock the mystery of who started the lice epidemic at her last school, adding to Sam’s reputation of highly contagious freakdom.
“Yes, sir?” “I’m Officer Stanhope and I was just over there bending your mom’s ear about how my nephew used to walk in his sleep, too. Now, it wasn’t as, uh, extreme as your situation— he was three years old and all he did was urinate every night in the laundry room—but my sister and her husband tried a bunch of things that maybe you and your family haven’t thought of yet.”
Jax snort-laugh-eyerolled. Officer Stanhope chuckled warmly and continued, “I know, I know, most of what I sug- gested to your mom you’ve tried already, but she didn’t have much to say about this one, so I thought I’d run it past you. Have you tried putting a bell on your door to wake you up if you sleepwalk?”
Jax snort-laugh-eyeroll-blew a raspberry. Sam felt a little badly for Officer Stanhope. Poor misguided dude. She answered as gently as possible. “Yes, sir. Tried that.”
