TUESDAY REVIEWS-DAY-on-WEDNESDAY – BOOK REVIEW – IGGY AND OZ AND THE PLASTIC DINOS OF DOOM by J.J. JOHNSON

 

THE BLURB

What if hundreds of plastic toy dinosaurs suddenly came to life- Could you find a way to stop them…?
Iggy Risner is your typical wise-cracking twelve year old. When his younger brother, Oz, wakes him in the middle of the night claiming he heard a monster in the attic, Iggy takes him upstairs to prove him wrong. But instead of a flesh-eating beast, they discover hundreds of their toy plastic dinosaurs that have mysteriously come to life.
When the dinos escape the attic and start terrorizing young kids in the neighborhood, and trampling flower beds, somehow Iggy, Oz, and their friends must catch the plastic dinos of doom before the damage escalates. But what do you do when your parent’s doubt your story, and a group of clueless neighborhood bullies stand in the way?

MY REVIEW

Such a fun story! Written in Iggy’s voice—with occasional interjections from Oz—the telling is delightful and suspenseful and comical. I truly felt like I was tagging along as they pursued their prey. Or at least listening to Iggy as he related their adventures.

The suspense builds as the children search for the wayward dinos, who leave a trail of disaster wherever they go. Interaction between the kids was spot on, importance of the task and excitement of the challenge before them, laughter at distractions, the neighborhood bullies trying to crash the search—and fear of the dinos themselves. I particularly enjoyed the lively and snarky and all too real banter between Iggy and Oz and their friends.

Overall a great story for middle grade kids.

TUESDAY REVIEWS-DAY – BOOK REVIEW – THE RED JOURNAL by DEB ELKINK

 

THE BLURB

Flirty globetrotter Sybil badgers her friend Libby to travel along in seeking out the world’s “sacred places”—a monastery in Japan, a mountaintop in Africa, a mosque in Istanbul. Her footloose wandering far from family values costs her more than money.
But Libby can’t afford to travel, and she’s plagued by a different kind of restlessness. Grieving the recent death of the grandmother who raised her in their inner-city Minneapolis tenement now slated for demolition, Libby faces homelessness in both heart and habitation.
When Libby discovers a cryptic message from beyond the grave and an antique ring pointing to a mystery in an inner room of a mansion museum in North Dakota, she sets out on a quest of her own for the meaning of heritage and home.

 

THE AUTHOR

I’m connected to several writers’ associations and was recently recruited to The Mosaic Collection (an international publishing group of women authors). I’m also involved in the local church and in community life. I take to the road several times a year to speak at women’s functions, always ready to return home again to my babbling brook — to sit and sip chai as I write and research, read and edit. But I also love to travel internationally and confuse the locals with my smattering of foreign phrases; I’ve visited thirty countries on five continents so far and have offended the ears of Japanese, French, and Spanish alike with corresponding gusto. (I’ve been told, however, that my English is quite good.)

My little stories are only as original as my research and imagination. That is, there’s nothing truly new under the sun. As I say in my very first Motifs posting, I love listening to the proclamation of the King in His Word. I don’t fancy my writings to be inspired, but just an attempt at retelling timeless truths written first by God Himself, the Author with authority to direct our steps. My heart echoes Job’s longing (19:23-25): “Oh, that my words were recorded, that they were written on a scroll . . . I know that my Redeemer lives!”

MY REVIEW

What a profound story—I’m so glad I stuck with it!

Sybil seems more an annoyance in Libby’s life than any sort of friend. I sure didn’t like her! So brash and pushy. I felt like there was far too much description of her past ventures to “enlightenment;” it bogged down the reading for me.

Same with Paige’s research. Fascinating as it was, for me it distracted from the story.

The threads of the story were there, though, however thin for the first two-thirds of the book.

Then, BAM! It picked up in intensity and held my interest, urging me on to the final page.

Oh, how well Ms. Elkink wove this together, so tightly knit. As brash as she was, Sybil served her purpose in Libby’s life. And as unrelated as it seemed, Paige’s research also had significant impact.

Ms. Elkink layers elements, the ugly, the miserable, with the tender and loving, and portrays a true image of life. Like ingredients in soup, each element contributes to the whole of the flavor, and to take one away, even the bitter, would distort the final result.

Overall a wonderful story with a profound Truth embedded within.

BLOGWORDS – Saturday 26 October 2019 – TUESDAY REVIEWS-DAY-on-SATURDAY – BOOK REVIEW – WHERE I WAS PLANTED by HEATHER NORMAN SMITH

TUESDAY REVIEWS-DAY-on-SATURDAY – BOOK REVIEW – WHERE I WAS PLANTED by HEATHER NORMAN SMITH

 

THE BLURB

In the spring of 1961, ten-year-old Nate “Weenie” Dooley has a revelation-his father is not a good one.

Inspired by National Geographic, his favorite thing next to the Bible storybook his mother gave him before she died, Nate plans to leave his father and their home in the Smokies to set out on adventure.

When he discovers that his father has left him first, it will take the help of a stray dog, some kind neighbors, a one-man-band, letters from a long-lost-aunt, and a new understanding of God to figure out he isn’t really alone.

Will he find that Copper Creek is where he’s always belonged? Or will his wanderlust keep him from ever coming back?

 

THE AUTHOR

 

Heather Norman Smith is a devotional blogger and author of inspirational fiction. Her goal is to use the written word to entertain and encourage, while illuminating the redemptive love of God. She also enjoys writing songs and singing about Jesus.
Heather is proud to be a life-long North Carolinian and aims to present the beauty of the Tar Heel State in her writing. Her home is just outside Winston-Salem, NC, where she lives with one husband, two daughters, one son, two cats, and two dogs. Heather loves words and does not enjoy math, except when it comes to counting blessings..

 

 

 

 

MY REVIEW

What kid doesn’t dream of going off to see the world? And with a cache of National Geographics, Nate Dooley has a better idea of where to go than most kids. Adults, too, for that matter. And like kids everywhere, he figures he can strike out on his own.

No matter he’s only ten. He’s essentially on his own all the time anyway.

Ms. Smith tells a heartwarming—and heart wrenching— story. Nate is resilient and ingenious, and somewhat precocious—I don’t know of many ten-year-olds who would consider some of the adult issues he does. Nor could I fathom that a father would leave a ten year old to fend for himself.

Those issues aside, this was an intriguing story, and as Nate soon learned, there were many people who loved and cared for him, even if his father couldn’t.

EXCERPT

October 1850

California gold fields

 

They were going to starve to death, if they didn’t freeze to death first. Sure, they had beans for dinner, but Eli had had to trade her spare shirt for them—the one she’d been wearing beneath her everyday shirt to keep the early-October frost from biting her skin. She shivered beside the fire. Not much left to trade for supper, but then, there wasn’t another miner in these diggings that had grub to spare even if she had something worth trading.

She studied each bean, careful not to burn a one. Her hollow stomach cramped as the sweet smell of the simmering meal mixed with the scent of wood smoke filling the air.

A pinch of rosemary would have added flavor. Would Mama have been disappointed Eli’d traded the last of their herbs for Pa’s new coat? She shook her head. If Eli couldn’t coax Pa from the creek, the least she could do was keep his shoulders warm. Mama would have understood.

A shift in the cold wind blew soot into Eli’s eyes as she lifted the pan from the fire. Brushing a grimy strand of hair from her face and blinking away the sting, she turned her back to the smoke and stirred the beans.

Time to get Pa.

She walked to where he squatted in the icy mountain creek.

He wouldn’t be happy she’d traded the spare shirt. He’d wanted it to hide her blossoming womanhood. Of course, he’d have to notice the shirt was gone first.

Standing beside the babbling water, she toed off her boots before yanking her tattered socks off. After stuffing them into a boot, she pulled up her trousers and, with a bracing breath, waded into the chilling water.

“Here, Pa.”

She held the spoon out handle first, but he shrugged her away. Afternoon sunlight bounced off his thin, greasy hair—brown like hers, but darkened by muck. His dirt-encrusted brown eyes continued squinting into the swirling pan of water. The gentle rotation of his wrists never ceased.

“Come on, Pa. You gotta eat.”

He cleared his throat and spat to the side opposite where she stood, never taking his eyes from the water. “I’m fine. You eat.”

Eli lifted the spoon higher. “But, Pa—”

“I’ll eat later.” He shifted in the calf-deep water so that her worried stare landed squarely between his broad shoulder blades.

Her fingers tightened around the spoon as she planted her fist on her hip. The rocks shifted beneath her feet. “That’s what you said this morning.”

“I’m busy, Eli. Now hush and leave me be.”

She stood there a moment longer, taking in the sight of him. That tall, too-thin frame draped in the now too-large, threadbare shirt. She’d mended that thing more times than she could count. The trousers he kept up with a rope at his waist needed mending in the right knee, but she doubted the fabric could endure another stitching. She peered down at her own trousers. The worn threads of the cuffs drifted and tugged with the current.

She frowned at the beans cooling in the pan. A body shouldn’t have to choose between clothes and food. But miners upstream caught any fish in the creek, and hunting around here was pointless. All the digging, rattling, and mining commotion scared the game away.

She’d tried to coax Pa to leave their claim long enough to hunt elsewhere to no avail.

Mama could’ve convinced him.

Mama isn’t here. Eli straightened her shoulders. “Pa, this is the last—”

“Hey, Eli!” The familiar voice cut her off.

She turned in time to see a small rock sail toward her head and managed to duck it, but the move upset her balance. She tipped backward.

The beans!

Contorting herself to right her balance without spilling their dinner, she wobbled back and forth as stones rocked beneath her. She shifted her footing, but the sloped face of a large, moss-covered rock hastened her descent. Holding the pan aloft as she fell backward, her body tilted sideways and she overcorrected—

Sending the beans spilling down her shirt and into the creek.

For a moment she sat still, the chill of the icy mountain runoff failing to cool her blood as gales of boyish laughter drifted toward her from the bank. She erupted from the creek, wielding her now-empty pan above her head. “Morgan Channing, I’m gonna have your hide for this!”

She sloshed three full steps to the edge of the creek before she froze.

The eleven-year-old had stopped laughing and was staring at her, mouth hanging open, eyes wide. “Y-you…! Y-you’re a…a…”

Eli followed his gaze to her chest, where a few beans still clung to her drenched, oversized shirt. She dropped the pan and covered herself. Oh, how brainless of her! Would Pa send her away?

BLOGWORDS – Friday 25 May 2019 – TUESDAY REVIEWS-DAY-on-FRIDAY – BOOK REVIEW – UNBOUND by ELEANOR BERTIN

TUESDAY REVIEWS-DAY-on-FRIDAY – BOOK REVIEW – UNBOUND by ELEANOR BERTIN

THE BLURB

Ruthie Adrian loves ranch life with her handsome husband, Mac and his family. But her fading hope for a child dissolves when Mac is killed in a crash along with his brother and father.
Added to their heartbreak, Ruthie and her mother-in-law, Naomi now face rejection by her sister-in-law, and impossible barriers as they try to protect their land.
Jake, a self-styled prophet steps up with a bizarre offer. A Godsend or a trap?
With raw grief, unexpected humour, and life-giving grace, Unbound is a modern twist on a timeless tale of the unique bond between two widows who harbour a few secrets of their own.

 

THE AUTHOR

 

In a fit of optimism at age eleven, Eleanor Bertin began her first novel by numbering a stack of 100 pages. Two of them got filled.
Eleanor holds a college diploma in Communications and worked in agriculture journalism until the birth of her first child. The family eventually grew to include seven children, all girls except six. Writing was crowded out by homeschooling a houseful for 25 years until Lifelines, her first completed novel, was shortlisted in the 2015 Word Alive Free Publishing Contest.
Eleanor and her husband live with their youngest son, who has Down syndrome, amidst the ongoing renovation of a century home in central Alberta. She blogs about a sometimes elusive contentment at jewelofcontentment.wordpress.com.

 

 

 

 

MY REVIEW

Tragedy can unsettle the most stable of families; triple tragedy can crush them.

Like their Biblical counterparts, Ruthie and Naomi have each other to cling to. And as obstacles assault them from all directions it seems they’re all each other has. Until even their bond is wounded. Both clinging to the need to keep a past secret hidden, the fear of discovery is crippling.

Ms. Bertin teases the brink of cultism with Jake’s overbearing and aggressive attitude and controlling behavior, and playing on Naomi’s grief. She draws out each character’s strengths—and their weaknesses—their fears and their deepest heart desires. Ms. Bertin walks them through the valley of the shadow of death, and painstaking step by painstaking step to healing and joy. Each event, each encounter, each interaction urging me on to the last page, the story was engrossing and captivating.

10 BEHIND THE SCENES FACTS ABOUT THE STILL WATERS

  1. My grandparents actually met on a back road in Colleton County in the 1940’s. She was lost and he was bundling pine straw to sell. So that story inside the story is true.
  2. McConkey’s Jungle Shack—and they’re not kidding about the shack part—really does have the best fish tacos on the coast
  3. Late in Still Waters, I reference a story about soldiers mistaking a loggerhead turtle for an enemy when the beach was being used as a lookout during WWII. This really happened and you can read about it in Nell Graydon’s Tales of Edisto, which I used for both reference and inspiration.
  4. We drive a blue minivan and it’s kind of well-known because the paint job was bad (thanks Honda) and we’ve never spend the money to fix it. So my best friend begged me to put the blue van in the story. It’s there, when Cora Anne and Nan stop at King’s Market, complete with a passel of kids. (I have four of those.)
  5. I buy and eat a whole King’s Market key lime pie every time we go to Edisto.
  6. My cousin Heather and I were born 18 hours apart, and our moms are sisters. Yes, she inspired Cora Anne’s cousin, Hannah. When we were kids at Edisto, we always hunted for sharks teeth and snail shells so we could make necklaces with our grandmother.
  7. The book is set in 2006 because I wanted a time period before social media’s invasion and before BiLo bought out the Piggly Wiggly. Edistonians are not coming around. They still call their only grocery store The Pig.
  8. The Edisto Island Open Land Trust is a gem I stumbled upon while researching what made the most sense for Tennessee’s philanthropic spirit. The EIOLT was the perfect fit since it’s all about preservation of the Island’s natural beauty, while empowering home owners to still be able to afford family property that’s been passed down for generations. The executive director, John, drank coffee with me one morning at the Edisto Coffee Shop and told me so much valuable information.
  9. Botany Bay (and that’s the Botany sentinel tree on the Still Waters cover) was nearly destroyed by Hurricane Matthew in 2016. Edisto took the brunt of the storm’s hit and the eye passed over the island. When the beach pushed inland, the entire first row of houses were left standing in water. But the community there is strong and resilient. They’ve been rebuilding and regrouping. The beaches will never look the same, but as my mama says, “That’s nature. And life. Storms come and you have to deal with the aftermath.” Or, as Tennessee puts it in the story, “Sometimes a storm’s what clears out the junk…”
  10. Edisto Beach still has a video store, probably the last one left in the country. It’s also one of two places in the town to get ice cream—unless you’re sitting on your own porch enjoying the ocean breeze and listening for the churn to slow down.

 

SNIPPET FROM STILL WATERS

“Sparkler time.” Cole grabbed the package and headed out the door, his brothers on his heels.

Outside was clear—a sailor’s dream sky. The boys set off the sparklers against the midnight black and whooped when someone a few streets over sent up a spray of light.

Lou stamped her feet and rubbed her arms. “I’m going to freeze to death.” She’d traded her earlier t-shirt for a sweater, and David could tell it was thin by the way the fabric skimmed her body.

“Here,” he slid his coat around her shoulders, pulling the collar close under her chin and brushing aside her chestnut hair. She’d let it grow beyond her jaw for the first time in at least a decade.

Thank you.” They stood that way for only a moment—but in the freshness of the new year under skies beaded with light eternity could have come and he would’ve died a happy man.

 

MY REVIEW

This story wrapped around me from the first page and didn’t let go! Ms. Brackett’s grasp of human nature and relational interactions is brilliant. Nothing is more complicated than distorted family ties, and this book is rife with them. Charlotte with her old school notions, Grace with her need to belong, David with his misplaced dedication, Lou with her insecurities—she frustrated me to no end, her constant hesitation and self-doubt… much too familiar to this reviewer. Shattered dreams and straining against what she wants most.

I appreciated the intermittent throw-backs, the bits of their past, laying the ties that have become so unraveled. Although, I kept waiting to understand what had triggered Lou’s deep seated insecurities.

The story rolled along so naturally, moving between characters and from one scene to the next. Reading felt like time spent with friends. Of course, now I must needs go back and read Still Waters

WREADING WEDNESDAY-on-TUESDAY – FEATURED BOOK – SON OF THE FATHER by ANDREW STONE

 

 

THE BLURB

Some debts are impossible to pay.

Son of the Father is a creative storytelling of Barabbas, the man released in the hours leading up to Jesus’ crucifixion.

Long before his life is traded for Jesus’, Barabbas’ family is ruined, a consequence of his own rage. Consumed with guilt he resolves to put things right, but this seems an impossible task. Huge debts, a man bent on revenge, theft, and murder hang above his head.

As Barabbas struggles to atone and restore his family’s honor and to bring himself out of poverty, he meets the new religious teacher. Barabbas can’t bring himself to trust this wandering preacher even though his family follows Him, until Barabbas’ life is spared, costing more than he thought possible.

 

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

 

Andrew is an ordained minister of religion who has experience of working in broadcasting and journalism. He is married to Alison and they have three grown-up sons.
