I so enjoyed “All Things Different”. A great emotional ride about relationships, good and bad, loyalty, family and love. This isn’t an easy weekend read, you’d miss most of the undercurrents. The story is told through the eyes of a high school boy. Not a lot of dialogue, but lots of insight on peoples feelings and thoughts. You need to read this one with some Kleenex close by. I give it 5 stars and will be checking out more books by Shawn Underhill.
Still free on Amazon Kindle version.
I was given a copy of “Fugitives from Northwoods” by the author, Chris Bostic in exchange for an honest review. The title originally caught my attention because I live in the Northwoods of Wisconsin. The story contains good teenage characters. Trapped in a world where teenagers are forced to work in labor camp “for the good of all”, and the boundaries of the countries that once were familiar are all changed. Penn leads a group of young people out into the wilds of a fall in the Northwoods of Minnesota. A strong story about loyalty and friendship. I recommend for ages 13 and up due to teen relationships. I give the story 5 stars and would definitely read more from this author.
I was given a copy of “Runner” by the author, Sharon Sant, in exchange for an honest review. This is a YA Dystopian novel who’s main character, Elijah, meets up with a group of ‘runners’ who are trying to stay a step ahead of those chasing them. This story is about teamwork, loyalty and how a group of people can become a family. I enjoyed the story and would recommend it for ages pre-teen and up. Sharon Sant has an easy writing style and a way with characters. I would definitely read more of this author’s work. I give the book 5 stars for YA readers.
