Sound Bender Sneak Peek

Posted by at 1:43 am in Reads, Sneak Peek | Permalink

SoundbenderDo you love stories with fast-paced action, trips to remote islands in the Pacific Ocean, and sound bending? "Wait. What's sound bending?" you ask. It's an amazing ability where you can hear the history of an object just by touching it. When Leo turns 13, he finds out that he has this ability. As Leo touches an unusual helmet among his uncle's valuable artifacts, he hears odd noises and realizes he must find out the story of this mysterious helmet.

Intrigued? Read the first chapter of Sound Bender by Lin Oliver and Theo Baker.

If you could hear the history of one object in your house or school, what would you pick? Tell us in the Comments!

    That sounds quite interesting. If I could here the history of an object I would choose this old bronze tea set thingy that my family owns in our house.

    I think I’d soundbend one of my grandfathers photos from when he was in the army, or maybe an old box, my Dad likes to collect old stuff he thinks is worth money. Maybe an old box he collected has a interesting past.

    I would choose my grandmothers necklace, because she died before I was born. It would be nice to learn more about her.

    So you’re telling me that he didn’t have that ability ’til 13?
    AND…
    I would pick my school’s Smartboard or … (it’s a secret).
