Unique,sweet and adorable - we thoroughly enjoyed this book. Can't wait to pick up more as school is out, and we are looking for good books. And although we love ALL books in our home, its truly special to see "ourselves" and all different colors of the rainbow as we explore..

This is the second book I've gotten my hands on by Ey Wade. As always, I am enjoying the depth of this story. I love a plot where characters are faced with adversity and find new strength within. (Poor Debney, and shame on those who complicated her life and hurt her).
I also love realistic dialogue and flawed, realistic characters;this book has all of the above and more. I recommend this book/author not to mention the children's books in her collection.
- Two Sisters: prattle tales of playful girls
on March 28, 2013
Sure to keep readers giggling, this story actually reminded me of a children's television show series. Each story was vivid, detailing the dynamics and love between two adorable little girls. Both Addy and Izzy are precocious and full of personality; they play funny pranks on one another, tease one another, but most importantly, they love one another. My personal favorite story was "Rainy Day," in which Izzy finds herself playing in older sister, Addy's bedroom on a rainy day. Addy is away at school, Izzy becomes bored, and surprisingly begins missing her big sister. Izzy then finds herself in Addy's bedroom, where she knows she will surely be "in trouble" with her sister. Several dolls and a pair of scissors later, an adventure ensues! And as the story ended, I sat imagining what would come next, even as the next story began.
- The Open Pillow
on Aug. 02, 2013
My 3-year-old, 7-year-old and I, read "The Open Pillow," and we all enjoyed this book. The artwork was beautiful, and the book's overall message: fitting in spaces you don't belong is nothing we should fret over; we outgrow people, places and things as we evolve. Not to mention, those places in which we go, hoping to "fit in" or mold to our surroundings, are temporary; finding our perfect fit lasts a lifetime.
Here are my 7-year-old's thoughts on "The Open Pillow."
"My favorite was the part when the cat ran away, because it was funny. It made me sad, when the pillow couldn't find his match. I learned, the word near-sighted means you can't see far away. I like the part when he found his match.
- Not a Sound. Not a Peep
on Aug. 02, 2013
My 7-year-old, 3-year-old and I read this book and really enjoyed it. Here is my 7-year-old's review, in her own words, of "Not a sound, not a peep."
"My favorite is when the bear really did protect the room. It made me sad when she had a nightmare. I like the part when the bear protected the room, and the light shining in her room."

REDEMPTION is a quick read. It felt more like an illustration with words. From the opening, filled with dim lights, a peculiar loneliness, to carefully nuanced scenes and conversations, and I wanted to know what was going to be revealed. (Not because of some overly dramatic plot, or dialogue infused with theatrics - this story goes deeper.)
I cannot stand spoilers, so I will only say, from learning a bit about the back story, the author has taken the unusual circumstances of the main character(s) and remarkably, vividly, taken us inside, outside, around, and through, the possibility of immortality and destruction.
I enjoyed Rowinki's ability to subtly describe such starkness, and look forward to reading more from this author.
- Back From Chaos
on Sep. 24, 2014
Where do I start? So many layers. Not at all what I'd expected -- in a good way. I will try not to ramble, but I want to include specific parts, and things that I noticed and truly enjoyed.
"When the people lived in harmony, Earth supplied them
with what they needed. But when they acted with violence and destruction, such as in times of
war, She had not the power to sustain Her support. Each needed the other. Thus swung the pendulum of Balance."
Not only did I read this story feeling as if I had every bit of information needed to follow closely, utterly engaged and intrigued with no confusion -- yet just enough mystery. Knowing Marja's history of betrayal, watching her own father lose his mind, it is difficult for her to trust. I shared her hesitance, and with each encounter with Gaelen and the rest of his people, I wondered what would be revealed.
My one and only "issue" would be in the way Marja, whose highly analytical nature (such a complex mind, which I very much enjoyed delving into), so quickly declared her trust in (I won't say his name -- no spoiler!!) especially with the concerns she mentioned (in her inner thoughts).
"Messalia let Sinnath lead where he wanted to go. She could see no personal stake in the outcome. Her position was secure. But she enjoyed intrigue, and it amused her to see where
men’s minds led them. This new twist might prove very interesting."
Characters like Messalia, were a great touch, and quite fascinating. Gaelan, in all of his conflict, and perceived level-headedness, (and the way he pinched his nose) brought something quite special to the story as well.
The dialogue was stunning. At times, there were things that I felt I should have seen coming, but because I was so wrapped up the strategies and the thoughts of the characters, I wondered, "how'd I not see that coming?"
In many scenes, the dialogue was so tightly weaved, cutting from words, to expressions, to tone of voice, back to words, and once again the actions of the character speaking. I was never left in the dark about what was happening, yet not once did I feel as the way I processed the characters was forced.
Marja - what an observant, intelligent, strong woman, even in her predicament.At one point, I thought to myself: So sad that clean hair, a bath, her old friends, and things of her past, were called ghosts. It was interesting to me, the way she viewed Klast, my personal favorite character; he, too, was referred to, as a ghost. With Klast's ability to fade into the background, she said that he made her skin crawl. I found this quite interesting, as the man who "bought him," when he was just a boy, made me absolutely sick -- made my skin crawl. Once, again, such lovely descriptions, drawing visceral reactions!
Poor Klast. I truly connected with him, when he connected with the pain and dark, traumatized state of (no spoilers: an integral character in the book). "He felt her go limp, and watched her retreat into that inner world that admits no pain or shame."
Back From Chaos, is an unexpected, myriad of emotions, and I could not ask for a better ending. Where will the story go, as we follow the precocious Liannis? I'll bet it will be quite a ride.
