This is a great "gripper" for those tween-teens without the gore of a typical thriller! Peretti is a fantastic author! Teenage twins and their parents help the USA search out "odd" situations! The sequel "Nightmare Academy" is EXCELLENT! Read 'em both!
This was a gripping novel. I couldn't put it down! Great analogies were presented throughout the book! (Sin seems so appetizing like your favorite homemade desert, cooked to perfection....and then you find out you are eating wormy, moldy dog food!)
EXCELLENT BOOK! I would highly recommend it. It can either reinforce what you're already doing or encourage you to get on the right track. It is also just a delightful look into Robin McGraw's heart, just like the title says! From the back "I am on a mission to get you excited about your life, excited about being a woman in this day and time. My goal is to help you see your life as I see mine: A vast array of choices that can bring you closer to the person you long to be. Your life is waiting for you to claim it. It's all in the choosing."
THIS IS AN EXCEPTIONAL BOOK!! From back cover: "Joel was only two years old when an 18 wheeler smashed into his family's car. In the inferno that followed, he was burned on over 85 percent of his body. This is his story as onhly he can tell it. Experience the world from Joel's perspective as he takes you on a personal journey with more twists and turns than a Hollywood movie....I am just an ordninary person who people find extraordinary."
This book is the story of Little Women from Mr. March's point of view. It was a good read but seemed to lack "intregrity". I was disapointed in one or two threads of the story. Overall, it is a good read but not worth a credit. I recommend you get it at the library.
An absolutely adorable book about how long a minute takes.... When waiting for the school bell to ring or waiting for the cookies to come out of the oven...it's still only ONE minute. "Sometimes a minute seems fast and sometimes it seems slow!"
