Almost Perfect
By Diane Daniels Manning
Publisher: Beltor
ISBN: 978-0578136394 (print)
ISBN: 978-0578136400 (ebook)
Pages: 319
Genre: General Fiction

An old woman and a special boy come together over love of a dog, journey to Westminster and heal their troubled families in the process.

Benny Neusner, a 13 year-old boy with mild autism and ADHD, spends his days dreaming up ways to please his neglectful mother and avoid work at the special school he attends. He just knows if he won Westminster, the world’s greatest dog show, it would make his mother smile. He falls in love with McCreery, a has-been champion Standard Poodle and dreams McCreery could be the Best in Show, but McCreery belongs to another. His owner, 70 year-old Bess Rutherford, was once the greatest breeder of champion Standard Poodles in America. Now she has razed her famous Umpawaug Kennels, sold off all her remaining dogs except McCreery and given up her lifelong dream of winning Best in Show at Westminster—a feat she has actually never attempted for unknown reasons. Can a lonely boy who has never succeeded at anything in his life find a way to combine his dream and Bess,’ heal two families and create an ending that is almost perfect?

Praise for Almost Perfect:
"A charming novel about a troubled young dog owner that will appeal to readers of all ages." - Kirkus Reviews.

Our Beck Valley Books Review of Eighty and Out by Kim Cano 
"As with all of Kim Cano's books that I have read, you become mesmerized by the story, the characters come to life somehow making a special bond with the reader, you instantly feel connected to them. This is a beautiful, gentle story of coming of age, love, loss, despair and happiness,

The story follows two sisters, Lou and Jeannie, along with Lou's best friend Bernice. They found themselves growing up in the racial hate timeline which was harsh and choosing whether to follow the pressure groups or your own heart and beliefs is a choice that they must make. Another choice the sisters made together was never to allow themselves to live past 80, to end up as their poor Aunt Violet has, living in a nursing home with her full life withering away to frailty.

As they grow through school, college and beyond their friendships grow, relationships start with the innocence of first love and dreams of their futures are created. But do they allow their hearts to win over their minds and follow their dreams ? Do they stick to their childhood sisterly pact?

There is always a lovely tone when reading this author's work, the light humor to this one made me smile from the things the parents said to the kids themselves and the way their minds work. Although I felt the emotional highs, I also felt the tremendous lows and the story line definitely pulled at my heartstrings with some of the sadness. I have to admit though at one part of the book I did shout out with anger, but I'm not telling you why!

I loved the close bonds of friendship and the sisterly love within the story. I also loved that the story highlighted that life is precious and love is what keeps life moving on even in those hard times."

Title: The Truth About Ellen
Author: Sarah Louise Smith
Publication: Crooked Cat Publishing Ltd. (19 May 2015)
Summary: When Ellen starts dating Tom, a member of the band she adored as a teenager, she can’t believe how lucky she is. She neglects to mention that she's a huge fan because that just wouldn’t be cool, would it? Ellen also keeps quiet about how she once spent an evening with Tom’s ex-bandmate/ex-best friend Jasper, her long-term celebrity crush. Tom doesn’t need to know about that, it’s all in the past. That is until Tom and Jasper get back in touch… and the truth threatens to ruin everything Ellen has ever dreamed of...
