Young Adult/Middle Grade Novel For Review

Joshua's Island
By Patrick Hodges
Publisher: iUniverse
Published: December 2014
ISBN: 9781311583727
Genre: Young Adult, Contemporary YA
Formats Available For Review: epub, mobi, pdf, Online reader

Joshua is small for his age. He has been bullied relentlessly for years, and all of his friends have drifted away from him. Eve is a pretty girl who has just been recruited into the popular girls’ clique. They couldn't be more different. But as they begin their final year of middle school, their lives intersect when they are paired together as lab partners in Science class.

At first reluctant to be near him, Eve soon realizes that not only is Joshua nothing like she’d been led to believe, but that their school hides a very nasty secret. The unlikely pair enter into a dangerous relationship that will teach them both the true meaning of friendship, loyalty, and most of all, love … a relationship that will not only change both of their lives forever, but the complexion of their entire school.

YA Science Fiction For Review

The Ghost of Sephera
Theodore Crane YA Sci-fi Series, Book Two
By J.D. Tew
Published: November 2014
ISBN: 978-1503236295
Pages: 417
Genre: YA Science Fiction

In a volatile Galaxy that is light-years from Earth, Theodore Crane thrusts himself and his broken crew into desolate conditions, vowing to find two valuable allies who were lost in battle.

Meanwhile, the war between two all-powerful demigods continues--the tyrannical Odion spreads his empire and the despotic Zane stalks Theodore through a shroud of resistance known as the Opposition.

Due to recent failures, the Opposition must retrench in order to rid the universe of the two demigods who are threatening the freedoms of the Galaxy. Theodore must help the Opposition's freedom fighters find hope.

Along his journey, Theodore and his crew learn of an all-powerful omnipotent mainframe, Eppa. Records of her existence suggest that she sees and records everything. If Theodore can locate Eppa, he may shift the fate of the Galaxy.

The Ghost of Sephera is a rollicking space adventure to be enjoyed by readers age twelve and up, and explores universal questions such as: Do incredible nano-engineered particles with great intelligence have the same freedoms and rights as the peoples of the galaxy? If time travel was a reality throughout the galaxy, how do we hunt down and apprehend violators? Is a vast repository with unlimited knowledge, one that records every single second since the beginning of Time and discerns every decision ever made, too powerful to exist?

The Acolytes of Crane
Theodore Crane YA Sci-fi Series, Book One
By J.D. Tew
ISBN: 978-1482547580
Published: February 2013
Pages: 352
Genre: YA Science Fiction

Theodore Crane finds solace in goofy everyday pranks, in order to cope with living under the shadow of an abusive father and dealing with a belligerent bully who seeks him out at school.

One day, intervention from outer space strikes as a mysterious amulet soars into his room bearing enigmatic clues.

This causes Theodore to question everything about the universe, and the answer comes in the form of two battling intergalactic warlords who, unknown to Theodore, have been analyzing him all his life, fearing that he can unlock the secret to their defeat and demise. But this curiosity over Theodore comes at a price, for many people.

To protect his loved ones, and to avenge what has torn his family apart, Theodore must leave Earth. He is given just fourteen days to assemble a team of trustworthy friends and then convince each one to go with him on this dangerous mission.

Just because it's December, don't think this "Firelight" has anything to do with holidays...except perhaps as a gift for your favorite teen girl. ;)
