Review: Jake & the Dragons of Asheville by Brian Kacica

Here is a summary of what the book is about: The storyline takes place in a very small town in North Carolina. When Jake Winston is thirteen years old he discovers that he has a unique genetic trait... a power coursing through his blood. A power so strong that a special government  agency, ONX, wants. What the government    wants  the government  decides to get: by any means necessary.

ONX agents begin to plot and then act to obtain Jake's secret. Jake's father, who was a local hero, suddenly dies. After the death of his father, Jake's grandfather returns to the area to look after Jake and sends him on a journey. The journey leads Jake to a gated forest near the town. Upon entering the forest Jake comes face to face with a family of dragons. From that point the story explodes: ONX agents begin killing every dragon they come upon in order to discover the power of the blood. What will Jake do? Or, can he do anything?

This is the first fantasy book that I have read and what a treat. There is a lot of action and adventure in the story.

For those of you who enjoy fantasy books you should pick up a copy. This book is great for pre-teens and up. Just the cover should get their interest... it's kind of cool.

There is a surprise in the book but I am not going to tell you where it is. You will have to find out for yourselves.

Happy Reading Everyone!

Just Another Blog Update

Well my husband comes to California  today. I can't wait to see him it has been a while since I have seen him. While we are in California  we are going to drive up to Monterey and  stay up there for 3 days. Then we are going to do some sight seeing along the coast on the way back down  to my dads house.  This is going to be a fun vacation. I am going to take a lot of pictures so be sure to check out my Facebook and Instagram accounts.

Review: Ralphy the Rabbit: Finds Himself by David Wallace and Lorian Dean

Here is a summary of what the book is about. The story is about a rabbit named Ralphy. He knew he was different from his brothers and sisters. Ralphy couldn't hop very far but the thing that drove him nuts was his ears. Ralphy ears were larger and crooked than a normal rabbit. When kids came into the pet shop they would laugh at him as they pass by him. One day a little girl named Marta noticed Ralphy jumping  around in his cage. From that moment everything changed for Ralphy.

What an incredible story to read to children.

There are some wonderful adventures that teach great moral lessons.

It has a wonderful message about friendship and accepting yourself just the way you are. Also, don't worry about what other people think of you.

I feel this book is geared toward the age range of 6 to preteen.

I believe the message is also saying it's ok to be different.

Happy Reading Everyone!

Review: 3 Willows by Ann Brashares

Here is a summary of what the book is about. Summer is a time to grow

seeds
Polly has an idea that she can't stop thinking about, one that involves changing a few things about herself. She's setting her sights on a more glamorous life, but it's going to take all of her focus. At least that way she won't have to watch her friends moving so far ahead.

roots
Jo is spending the summer at her family's beach house, working as a busgirl and bonding with the older, cooler girls  she'll see at high school come September. She didn't count on a brief fling with a cute boy changing her entire summer. Or feeling  embarrassed by her middle school friends. And she didn't count on her family at all...

leaves
Ama is not an outdoorsy girl. She wanted to be at an academic camp, doing research in an air-conditioned library, earning A's. Instead her summer scholarship lands her on a wilderness trip full of flirting teenagers, blisters, impossible hiking trails, and a sad lack of hair products. It is a new summer. And a new sisterhood. Come grow with them.

I found this book very interesting. I thought it was apart of The Sisterhood  of the Traveling Pants series but it's not. It's a new sisterhood and new friendships.

What I got out of the storyline is that no matter what your friends are always there for you.

I only hope to have friendships as close as the characters did in this book.

I do plan on reading more books from  this author.

Happy Reading Everyone!
