A Man Called Ove

I loved this book! A Man Called Ove is probably the best book I’ve read in a long time with such a smooth and complete character development. From the very beginning, I looked hard to find any redeeming quality in Ove, a grumpy old man. Even though I disliked him, Ove drew me in to […]

A Fun Read for Middle School and Beyond!

I am an author of non-fiction with a secret love of dragons and all I can say is “Wow”! C. Lee McKenzie’s Sign of the Green Dragon kept me guessing every inch of the way. McKenzie’s imagery had me searching the cold walls of the cave in the dark, while feeling the breeze of the dragons’ wings […]

I have read many of Cec Murphey‘s books and loved them all. However, in my estimation, his best yet is one of his newest fictions The Promises of Ophelia Bennett. The quiet Mrs. Bennett brings so much more to her students than the ability to read and write. In her promises, her “poorest of poor” […]

A Girl Named Zippy by Haven Kimmel

Haven Kimmel portrays the innocence that childhood holds in A Girl Named Zippy. The nickname Zippy is so appropriate for this little girl as she is seen as the classroom menace and the neighborhood nuisance. Teachers dismiss her as a clown and neighbors slam doors in her face. But Zippy’s tenaciousness and tight grasp on […]
