Very engaging "troubled teen" story. Some of the scene transitions are a bit choppy, but the story is compelling and the book is hard to put down. The work may need a bit of polishing in spots, but the author is on the right track. Don't read it if you aren't prepared for teen angst.
Eddie has some tall tales, but that's what happens when you grow up in Texas. Personally, I believe in the flying pigs, but I'm not so sure about the bear. A lot of fun, and in between the shady stories, there's some good inside knowledge about Depression era Texas. Give 'er a read.
An enjoyable young adult coming-of-age/quest story. It has some amusing variations on the way. Kat is a young witch just coming into her powers in a secret polar witch nest. She learns that through no fault of her own, she is a threat to the way of life she has been born into. After some requisite struggle, she finds the solution to her troubles with the help of her half-vampire younger brother. Having fallen for the first boy she meets who isn't a witch, she goes off into the sunset, toward a better life.
Breezy and fun, one looks forward to the next outing of Kat and friends.
