I reviewed Susan Cain's "Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can't Stop Talking" and invite you to read the review and weigh in with your thoughts: How important IS group work? Is it necessary to be outgoing in order to be successful? Does eloquence automatically indicate intelligence?

A must read for those with PTSD or survivors of PTSD--  

I just finished reading Banned For Life by D.R. Haney. Check out my review of this punk-rock coming of age story!



Goodreads Review:

Before scientists found the cure, people thought love was a good thing. They didn’t understand that once love -- the deliria -- blooms in your blood, there is no escaping its hold. Things are different now. Scientists are able to eradicate love, and the government demands that all citizens receive the cure upon turning eighteen. Lena Holoway has always looked forward to the day when she’ll be cured. A life without love is a life without pain: safe, measured, predictable, and happy. 

But with ninety-five days left until her treatment, Lena does the unthinkable: She falls in love.

My Review:

þ Mysterious, charming, adorable boy

þ   Forbidden love 

þ   Dystopian world

þ   Cliffhanger ending

    Lauren Oliver is really smart to have taken something so important in today's world, like love, and make it illegal in a future world.  It's kind of like Brave New World in the sense that love is not desirable and people are sort of like robots, without emotion.  Read the rest of my review here

Five Star Review for Middle-Grade/YA Treasure Hunting Adventure

A long-lost emerald, a missing treasure map, and a wealthy villain combine for an action-packed adventure!

Thirteen-year-old Noah Winter, the son of sea-exploring treasure hunters, dives the San Isabel shipwreck with his parents in search of a mysterious treasure map lost in the murky depths off the Florida Keys over a century ago. The map reveals the hiding place of the priceless De La Rosa emerald. But before the Winters can find the map, a wealthy treasure-hunting rival kidnaps Noah’s parents. Now Noah must match wits with a dangerous adversary, not only to discover the treasure map first, but to rescue his mom and dad before it’s too late.
