  • The Clark Kent Chronicles on May 05, 2012
    star star star star star
    Raising challenging, and challenged kids, can be frustrating, difficult and tiring. It can make you feel like you are alone in the world, that no-one truly understands you or your child. Well you are not alone, people do understand. This book looks at real life through a wonderful perspective that says "my child is wonderful, and special and even though I would like to strangle him/her sometimes, life really is good". The book, through the tales of the author, lets you participate in things that worked, and things that didn't. It is wonderfully written, easy to read and a real hoot.

    What a great book! How many middle aged woman have been stuck in a rut of, I feel terrible, my body hurts, I don't want to get off the couch, I don't want to get out of bed? How many have heard from their doctors, we're sorry but there is just nothing that can be done for you? Well the author does a great job of having us laugh and cry with her on her way to doing a half Ironman triathlon, in the middle of battling with really tough hormonal issues. What you come away with, including just the satisfaction of a great read, is that you are not alone and that you need to measure success on your terms, not on anyone elses.
  • Puppalicious And Beyond on May 05, 2012

    Loved it loved it loved it. This is not just someones ode to their lovable pooch. It is a collection of stories about animals, ghosts, bugs... think creatures. It is funny, creative, touching and moves so fast you want it to be twice as long when you reach the end. One other interesting thing about this book is that the author weaves in a couple of fiction excerpts from yet to be published books. Might sound a little weird, the way I describe it, but it works, and it great. You will not regret the purchase.

    OK YES I am the authors husband, no tricks here, AND, this really is a great book. I have read a ton of books in my lifetime, owned a bookstore before Pamela and I even met. When I first read some of her writing I was immediately hooked by her VOICE, yes, she has an amazing unique wonderful, funny, smart, voice. She has had the good fortune of hooking up with an excellent editor who has helped her create some really GREAT stuff while keeping that Voice. Saving Grace is the first of 3 in the series. It zips along full of life, laughs, color and mystery. The Characters are not cardboard cutouts, the scenes are NOT black and white. If you give Katie (the main character)a chapter, she will have you hooked for the series. And guys, this is NOT a girls-only book. If you want a great story with characters you can attach to, a murder mystery with a fast pace, and some great laughs while you are at it, this is it.
