Sea Cutter in Paperback!

Today I’m celebrating! I’ve been at this self-publishing thing for less than two years, so I don’t have a long history with any of my related friends and contacts. And despite the large number of indie books that have crossed my path during this time, I’ve recommended very few of them. Timothy Davis, however, was […]

Seeds of Rebellion (Beyonders, book two), by Brandon Mull, 2012, Book Review

I’ve been waiting exactly a year for the second Beyonders book. I read the A World Without Heroes at family camp last year. This year I checked out Seeds of Rebellion to read at camp once again.

The Island Stallion, by Walter Farley, 1948, Book Review

Sent (The Missing: Book 2), by Magaret Peterson Haddix, 2009, Book Review

***This is book two of The Missing series. If you haven’t read book one, Found, check out that review first, read that book, and then meet me back here.*** I don’t always review more than one book in a series, but in this case, the sequel was as good as the original. At the end of book one, […]

  “He’s not dead!” “Please Nathaniel. It’s been two years. He’s not coming back,” my mother begged. “How can you give up on him?” I yelled. Nat’s heart tells him his father survived the shipwreck. But where is he? Why has he left Nat and his mother to a pauper’s existence in New Bedford? Then […]

Found (The Missing: Book One), by Margaret Peterson Haddix, 2008, Book Review

This book was recommended to me with little explanation, and I expected it to be just another run-of-the-mill, edgy adventure story, with a little too much language and content a little too old to comfortably call it a tween book. Wrong! Found is much more than I bargained for. It’s a fantastic, clean page-turner entirely suitable for […]
