Cinescape is happy to announce it's next contest: A giveaway of the first book in a new young adult series titled THE ADVENTURES OF CHANCE FOURTUNE: CHANCE FORTUNE AND THE OUTLAWS.

The first in a middle grade series by author Shane Berryhill, CHANCE FORTUNE AND THE OUTLAWS centers around young Tennessee native Josh Blevins, a fourteen-year-old who dreams of becoming a student at the esteemed Burlington Academy for the Superhuman. However, due to his lack of superpowers, his application is rejected. Refusing to accept defeat, Josh, through some dubious connections and little white lies, gains entrance into the academy. Since he does not actually have any superpowers, he does this under the falsified persona of Chance Fortune, his "superpower" being luck. At Burlington Josh meets a kaleidoscope of extraordinary characters some friends, some enemies and ultimately finds himself caught up in a struggle for the fate of the universe.

Sounds like a bad take on Sky High. Who wants to bet that he winds up having superpowers? My guess would be that he has the power of luck. Duh...

And how long before someone buys the rights to make the movie?

First, I would assume fft5305 has NOT read the book since his "guess" is completely wrong. The Adventures of Chance Fortune is a fantastically imaginative book that is a tale of a boy who makes his own luck through hard work and perseverance--and a joy to read at any age. And I'm not just saying this because I'm from the author's hometown...though it does afford me the ability to say that Mr. Berryhill completed his first draft of TAOCF long before Sky High was a glimmer in the public's eye. So, please, enough with that. The adventure zips along at the speed of light with a dazzling array of characters. The action sequences are tight, and as Mr Berryhill continues to gain experience, this series is sure to become all the richer. Fans of comics and the scifi/fan/horor genres will also enjoy the numerous nods Mr. Berryhill gives to many of his influences. In a way, this book is a tribute to and a revival of a golden age in danger of passing. And its a nice break from wizards and dragons. But...don't take my word for it. Publisher's Weekly has said the book will "delight in this first volume" and the Voice of Youth Advocates says the ending is sure to "have readers demanding more."
