Are you afraid of Monsters?


Jack Templar

 

Jack Templar: Monster Hunter

Orphan Jack Templar has no memory of his parents and only the smallest details from his Aunt Sophie about how they died. The day before Jack’s fourteenth birthday, things start to change for him. At first it’s great: A sudden new strength helps him defend his nose-picking friend “T-Rex” from the school bully, and even his crush, Cindy Adams, takes notice. But then a mysterious girl named Eva arrives and tells him two facts that will change his life forever. First, that he’s the descendent of a long line of monster hunters and he’s destined to be in the family business. Second, that there’s a truce between man and monster that children are off-limits…until their fourteenth birthday! Jack has only one day before hundreds of monsters will descend on his little town of Sunnyvale and try to kill him.

As if that weren’t enough, things get even more complicated when Jack discovers that the Lord of the Creach (as the monsters are collectively known) holds a personal grudge against him and will do anything to see that Jack has a slow and painful death. To stay alive and save his friends, Jack will have to battle werewolves, vampires, harpies, trolls, zombies and more. But perhaps the most dangerous thing he must face is the truth about his past. Why do the other hunters call him the last Templar? Why do they whisper that he may be the “One?” Why do the monsters want him dead so badly?  Even as these questions plague him, he quickly discovers survival is his new full-time job and that in the world of monster hunters, nothing is really what it seems.

Diggy eBook

Diggy

Diggy

Diggy is an adorable story about an excavator (a piece of construction equipment) that takes you through

a day in the life of construction work.  Diggy likes to dig holes, and throughout the story children will watch as Diggy

does what he does best.

The story is repetitive and engaging.  It’s great for both boys and girls, children who love cars,

trucks and getting dirty.

Your child, like mine, will be asking to read this story again and again.

The characters are brightly colored with fun names.  My children identify with each

character, as their daddy works in construction, so to them they get to keep Daddy around throughout

the day even though he may be at work.

Dating the Wrong Men

  • Laugh, cringe and identify with each “Wrong Man” story.

  • Find and maintain your dignity and self-worth in any “Wrong Man” situation.

Kelly Rossi has hit the nail on the head with her book Dating the Wrong Men.  Her book depicts her life as she deals with a great number of the wrong ones.  She hilariously, and often seriously, depicts each character over the course of her misguided dating years before she finally was able to find HER Mr. Right.

Following, you might like to read a few of mine.  Please feel free to share some of your “wrong men” dating fiasco’s in the comments section!  I’d love to hear the types that you have been through. [Read more…]

Breaking Free eBook


Breaking Free YA Novel

 

Breaking Free

A short description from the author:

Kelsie Sullivan’s life has changed forever. The once outgoing cheerleader has a secret to hide. The car accident that killed her best friend Jenna? She caused it.

With an absent father and unforgiving stepmother, Kelsie has nowhere to turn. She manages her guilt and grief with razor blades. The fleeting release she experiences becomes an obsession and soon she’s unable to hide it any longer. Once her cutting is revealed, Kelsie’s parents enroll her in a Wilderness Therapy program designed to rehabilitate troubled teens, but North Carolina is a world away from California.

Kelsie fights against everything the program has to offer until she befriends JC, a boy with a tortured past of his own. He’s also the only one who is able to ease her pain. The two grow close, but quickly discover that nature—both human and otherwise—can easily rip them apart.

This book really hit home with me in some aspects.  As a mother of a teenager who was dealing with some serious depression issues, I can completely sympathize.  This girl had to have been facing and dealing with some of the deepest guilt anyone could ever imagine.

Reading this book, it’s easy to put yourself into her place, and truly feel the overwhelming guilt that she feels, that forces her to start on a path to cutting, which for many can be very hard, sometimes impossible to overcome.

Thankfully, Kelsie’s parents did one thing right and enrolled her into a therapy program that starts her on the, often bumpy, road to recovery.

This book is a heartbreaking story of depression, guilt, anger, and the results of what that all can cause for a young girl.

A riveting story that kept me turning pages until the very end.

My opinion: In today’s society, every child needs to be taught about compassion, learning about other cultures and learning empathy for another person.  This book is the perfect way to start your children at an early age, to learn and understand that all children; all people, are the same regardless of their colors or cultures.  It’s a great way for them to learn about other cultures and help them to eagerly learn about cultures that they don’t see on a daily basis.
