'The Adventures of Vivian Sharpe, Vegan Superhero'

Posted May 16, 2012 by Megan Rondeau

Seeing as how The Avengers has taken over the world—Mark Ruffalo as Hulk, you stole my heart—I thought it was time to introduce a superhero of another kind. Meet Vivian Sharpe, vegan superhero!

From the mind of vegan activist Marla Rose comes the tale of a young girl whose life is forever changed after receiving a visit from a “pig spirit” during the night. After that, a ham sandwich is no longer just lunch meat between two slices of bread—it’s the flesh of a once-living, breathing animal, one who was standing in her bedroom the night before! The strange occurrences don’t stop there, and as 15-year-old Vivian Sharpe transforms, it’s up to her to uncover the truth about the ecological disaster threatening her town.

Ready for some summer reading? For your chance to win one of three paperback copies of The Adventures of Vivian Sharpe, Vegan Superhero, tell us below about your favorite summer reading destinations. Good luck!

*Three winners will be chosen at random from submitted animal-friendly comments in which the commenter tells us his or her favorite summer reading destinations. Entries must be received by May 23, 2012. The winners will be chosen at random and notified on May 25, 2012. Be sure to read our privacy policy and terms and conditions, as you’re agreeing to both by commenting. No purchase necessary. Void where prohibited by law.

    in my backyard we have a beautiful rock garden my mom works on, covered in lava rock, shrubs, cherry trees, etc. there is a huge rock i love to sit on under the shade of the tree, admiring the smell of lavender and watching the bumble bees get their pollen. It’s such a wonderful place to read my books :)

    My favorite reading destination is in my backyard with my five beautiful dogs to keep me company, along with the chirping of the birds and the rustle of the leaves due to creatures like lizards and squirrels. Possibly a vegan frappuccino in my hand. If not the backyard, then maybe the park or a little vegan restaurant that isn’t too loud. :)

    I always look forward to the summer, ’cause I live in the northeast with my vegan superhero boyfriend and the eight cats and two dogs we are so honored to live with — and my favorite thing to do is to swim in the ocean. Since the cats don’t like to swim or travel (:o)) Dave and I bring the doggies camping and swimming many weekends in the summer to one of the very few beaches that “allow” dogs. I’m so grateful that it is SUCH a BEAUTIFUL beach and that we can bring our two girls. <3 Though I miss the kitties tremendously, I am always SO happy to see them when we get home! :o)

    ☸ ✵ ❂ ⚘ ❀ ❃ ❁ ✼☸ ✵ ❂ ⚘ ❀ ❃ ❁ ✼☸ ✵ ❂ ⚘ ❀ ❃ My name is Jason. Top 10 quirks: 1. I’m vegetarian. 2. I’m Sagittarius 3. Artist 4. I love The Beatles 5. Love dogs! 6. Spring is my favourite season. 7. I’m an only child. 8. I knit. 9. I like to press flowers. 10. I like to shrink potato chip bags. I have a tattoo on my wrist that says peace in braille. I feel like I should've been a teen in the 60’s-70’s. I have rainbow gauges in my ears. I’m FTM transgender but only identify as a gay male. I will write to anybody! I love fast food, glass blowing, making solar sensitive paper prints, ceramics, making friendship bracelets, tie dying, decorating my room, shopping online and off (but mostly online), cuddling with my Cockapoo named Mickey,eating candy, making things, fashion, & going to the mall. I can’t cook to save my life. I enjoy Netflix, crafts, & making people laugh, I am generous and enjoy Oldies. Green is my favourite colour. I hate the colour orange. Halloween is my favourite holiday. I’m addicted to playing Kardashian on my Ipod and using Instagram. I want to travel a ton one day, learn German, drive and lifeguard, and be an elementary school art teacher. I collect international stamps, coins, postcards, Betty and Veronica Archie Comics, kawaii stuff, cameos, *stickers*, and trinkets (I pick things off the ground, I’m a klepto like that). I write in a diary everyday. I hate candy corn. I have two cactus plants. I have Facebook, Snapchat, Tumblr and Instagram, so HMU if you want my usernames. I believe loosely in karma, fate, kismet, déjà vu, reincarnation, dreams, destiny & fate. I love for stores: Etsy, Hot Topic, Francesca's, & Claire’s. People say I look like Brenton Thwaites. My Celeb Hotties are: Joseph Gordon-Levitt *swoon*, James Franco, Paul McCartney, Jake Gyllenhaal, John Krasinski & Josh Hutcherson (I have no idea why they all mostly start with “J” lol).

Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that." - Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. "If you wait to tell someone you love them, it’s too late." -Paul McCartney "If you don’t shoot, you don’t score." "It’s all okay in the end. If it’s not okay, it’s not the end." "And in the end, the love you take, is equal to the love you make." -Paul McCartney Looking for: • Penpal • Art Pals • Package Pals • Snail Mail I send small gifts, and even surprise you when I’m thinking of you. **I ask that your age is 18-23.** No country requirements, I enjoy using stamps lol. What I expect from a pen pal is LGBTQA respect and a consistency to correspondence. But I seriously love meeting new people with different interests and writing to them.
