A PENNY FOR MY THOUGHTS?

I have to be honest, I didn't think I would like this book at first...What with it being Sci-fi! I'm not that big into that genre...But I decided that I should give it a whirl, especially when John said it had romance in it...What girl could turn it down...Then I thought that it was going to be really 'alien-y' but they are basically regular people like you and like I.



Once you get started with this story, your not going to be able to put it down!!! I started reading thinking it was going to take forever, but then I couldn't stop reading, and I ended up staying up WAY to late :) Now the first part, is kind of slow, but once you get to the heart of the story it just gets better and better!!!



It starts with the Story of Death of the Tavern...This is the story of the beginning! And then the Secrets of Zareba is the end of the beginning...



I have to say, this has to be the hardest review to write...I'm trying to figure out what I can say, without giving away the good stuff :)



It all starts with Micheal and Triana, getting accused of cheating during a history project, because their stories are very similar, causing the teacher (Mr. Cample) to suspect them of talking to each other during the course of their projects.
So Mr. Cample calls a meeting of the Children and their guardian/parent... Dr. Jonas Harwell, adoptive father of Michael, and guardian of Triana, sits down and starts explaining everything...How these two kids who have never heard of the opposite story, could have been so alike...It takes you through reading both stories, and lets you in on some secrets of Triana, and Dr. Harwell!!'


I would say this is a must Read!!!!!!




To the FTC and whomever else it may concern, I received this book from the Author. In return, I have promised to review the book but have been given the freedom by The Author to give my honest opinions whether they be positive or negative.

  1. From the cover this doesn't look like my type of book- but based on your review I might give it a try.

    I really like the way your blog is set up! Very eye-catching!

    I found you through Book Blogs and signed up to follow you. When you have a chance- please stop by and follow the blog for my middle grade novel that I am hoping to get published. http://thesecretdmsfilesoffairdaymorrow.blogspot.com/

    Take care-
    Jess- although I may show up as Fairday, the main character from my novel. I can't figure out why that happens sometimes and I can't fix it. :)
