Smashwords book reviews by Brenda Monson

  • Leave me alone: Memoirs of an Exmormon on April 18, 2010

    Being a devout member of the LDS faith myself, I wanted to investigate the fiction on Smashwords that target LDS audiences. When I first saw "Exmormon" in B.E. Hewson's title, I was afraid of what slanderous material this book may hold. But, I'm not one to make ungrounded judgments. Once diving into this phenomenal work, it was obvious this wasn't just some petty payback. The struggle and genuineness conveyed in B.E. Hewson's voice is as true as I've ever heard in all my years of teaching. I am deeply impressed by this youthful work that speaks to the oldest issues of my culture.
  • Unsolicited Advice for Newly Hired High School Educators on April 18, 2010

    I have been an educator for over 20 years and now teach Classroom Management at a University level. And I would not recommend this book to any of my students about to enter the job. Being funny shouldn't be the first goal of being informative.
