Featured Book Review: Sun Bleached Winter 0000
Author : D. Robert Grixti
I admire how the author, D. Robert Grixit introduces the characters in this book and how he prepares his readers for what to expect. The author did a great job describing the atmosphere, scenery and how chaotic, gloomy, lifeless, dark, scary, eerie and dangerous his surrounding is in the wastelands.…
The Girl Who Could Fly - Victoria Forester Horror Book Review
Horror books Review
You just can’t keep a good girl down . . . unless you use the proper methods.
Piper McCloud can fly. Just like that. Easy as pie.
Sure, she hasn’t mastered reverse propulsion and her turns are kind of sloppy, but she’s real good at loop-the-loops.
Problem is, the good folk of Lowland County are afraid of Piper. And her ma’s at her wit’s end. So it seems only fitting that she leave her parents’ farm to attend a top-secret, maximum-security school for kids with exceptional abilities.
School is great at first with a bunch of new friends whose skills range from super-strength to super-genius. (Plus all the homemade apple pie she can eat!) But Piper is special, even among the special. And there are consequences.
Consequences too dire to talk about. Too crazy to consider. And too dangerous to ignore.
At turns exhilarating and terrifying, Victoria Forester’s debut novel has been praised by Stephenie Meyer, author of the Twilight saga, as “the oddest/sweetest mix of Little House on the Prairie
...Prepare to have your heart warmed.” The Girl Who Could Fly
is an unforgettable story of defiance and courage about an irrepressible heroine who can, who will, who must . . . fly.
Praise for Victoria Forester and The Girl Who Could Fly
“It’s the oddest/sweetest mix of Little House on the Prairie
. I was smiling the whole time (except for the part where I cried). I gave it to my mom, and I’m reading it to my kids—it’s absolutely multigenerational. Prepare to have your heart warmed.” Stephenie Meyer, author of the Twilight saga
“In this terrific debut novel, readers meet Piper McCloud, the late-in-life daughter of farmers…The story soars, just like Piper, with enough loop-de-loops to keep kids uncertain about what will come next….Best of all are the book’s strong, lightly wrapped messages about friendship and authenticity and the difference between doing well and doing good.”—Booklist, Starred Review
“Forester’s disparate settings (down-home farm and futuristic ice-bunker institute) are unified by the rock-solid point of view and unpretentious diction… any child who has felt different will take strength from Piper’s fight to be herself against the tide of family, church, and society.”—The Horn Book Review
