Homeschoolers Anonymous is pleased to announce that we are teaming up with M Dolon Hickmon to give away free copies of his powerful new novel, 13:24.
Called “a strange and effective debut novel about the powerful dynamics of father-son relationships and the casual violence of amoral subcultures” by Kirkus Reviews, 13:24 is of particular relevance to those interested in how abuse can arise within and hide behind the Christian Homeschool Movement. You can read our review of the novel here and our interview with Hickmon here. (We also featured a post from Hickmon during our “To Break Down a Child” series, which you can view here.)
We are giving away a total of 10 books, 4 via Facebook, 3 via Twitter, and 3 via Pinterest. We are also giving away one “grand prize” package, consisting of a special print edition (with a unique cover and limited edition artwork) and a “Rehoboam” t-shirt.

My Pinterest isn’t my name – it’s languageclass and I pinned it under “Educational Readings.” This would be good reading for all.

A book giveaway not to be missed.
i re-tweeted this post on twitter using my real name, though it may appear as firstname.lastname@example.org I am feeling technologically challenged with facebook, keep trying to log in and it has locked me out of my account, am totally blind so must listen to the audio version of the security code. In any case, 13-24 is well worth reading. We might not like to think that such abuses as the Michael-Pearl-like father perpetrates in the book take place, and it may make for stomach-churning reading, but it is crucial that we know about these things. I devoured Janet Heimlich’s “Breaking Their Will” and Meg Mosley’s “When Sparrows Fall” and “1324” will be a welcome addition to my library. It will fill a need for fiction that raises our awareness of abusive child discipline in Christian settings..
Thank you for the comment, andrea! I saw the retweet and you are definitely entered into the giveaway. We’ll be announcing winners this Friday and will make sure everyone knows who wins.
