The Echoing Book Tour! Review by LAWonder10
Uncategorized , Young Adult Books / August 12, 2016

              About the book: Rylee has an unusual gift. It brings good luck to those who are kind to her and misfortune to those who are not–at least, that’s what the crazy woman in the woods tells her. But Rylee doesn’t believe it until strange coincidences start happening to her classmates and friends. Her gift may not be a matter of luck but of life and death. My Review: Although Rylee didn’t find making friends easily, her one true friend, Shyler, was positively a jewel! She always found the positive in even the most impossible situations. Her other true friend was two years older, Merritt, but for a few years, their paths had gone separate ways. Now he was a Senior and she figured he was no longer interested in being friends. Rylee was shy whereas Shyler and Merritt were confident and outgoing…her opposites.Still, Shyler was the most devoted friend one could ask for. Although Merritt and Rylee no longer hung out together, he had always acknowledged her when he passed by…He never seemed to ignore her or acted like she was “below” him. The two years difference in age just sent them on…

Children's Books , Uncategorized / August 9, 2016

I am so far behind! I am sorry, dear followers for my lack of professionalism this year! I have survived my 20-year-old grandson’s suicide and the stress the county put us through by refusing to give us a date to release his body for a memorial.

I had a severe reaction to the devastation of that besides four other deaths this year of people very close to me. I have been out of commission five to six days (and nights) a week with debilitating migraines with very little relief.
