- Heaven Is For Heroes
on Oct. 22, 2011
PJ Sharon did a great job with the voice. It was easy to read and follow, important topics and real life issues that are hard to deal with, all expressed so well. This book is great for YA as well as for adults, too.
Dealing with the death of a brother or close relative is very hard, especially when they die young. I find the author lets the readers really get a feel of how such grief must be like. With family issues, obstacles to overcome, decisions to make, and a beautiful love story- makes this book a great read, very touching and inspiring.
- On Thin Ice
on Jan. 04, 2012
A MUST read for young adults and beyond. Penny's story is about how she overcomes the twists and turns life puts in her way. Dealing with her mom's cancer and grief, the responsibilities that are passed on to her, learning the effects lying can cause, family issues to deal with and her future and those in her life.
Penny finds herself ON THIN ICE at the rink but especially in life, with decisions to make, consequences to deal with and understanding why things happen and how to make the best of it. Not all is lost and there is always the right solution to any problem. Very inspirational, full of hope and surprises.
This story covers so many issues that I'm sure readers will connect or at least relate with in some way. Also, a beautiful love story, every girl would love to have a Carter in their life.
This book really touched my heart and as a parent it reminded me how life is viewed from a teens point of view and as an adult to understand and be more open with my kids letting them know they can come to me no matter what problems they face.
I highly recommend this book. Once you start reading you won't want to put it down. I liked that it wasn't so predictable and had me eager to keep reading. PJ Sharon does an awesome job with the voice. Her scenes play like a movie, very well written and I love happy endings. Caution-tissues are a must for this one, I give it 5 hearts!
