  Teen Book Reviews And More

*Warning!  Proud Mom Bragging Alert*
Here are some examples of the delightful reads and reviews to be had at Book Jacket.  I highly recommend following the progress of this up and coming new teen (pre-teen) book review blog.  This young lady {oh, so talented daughter} has a passion for reading and writing and it reflects in her weekly posts.  If you are looking for a great book recommendation for your {tween/teen} child or just want to read a personal review on some interesting books, then visit Book Jacket.          

I actually have my eye on "Home To The Sea" by Chester Aaron (above).  Here is a sample of the review that Olive {aka-Olivia} posts on this book:   "I loved this book! I have read it so many times. Chester Aaron took a story that has been stuck in the Fantasy section since its creation, and transformed it into a story that seems like something real! This book is a scientific version of The Little Mermaid in reverse, and better! (The teen version) This is a very deep book, and full of emotion."

Another review:
"Witch and Wizard was amazing, James Patterson really worked his tail of on this book(there is going to be a sequel). He put lots of dialogue in this story that made me laugh out loud, which I don't usually tend to do when I am reading a book. He left no confusions, and nothing that didn't add up, everything fit precisely. His characters were portrayed beautifully. One of the things that impressed me the most was timing, he would hit you with an event that you never saw coming, and in some way, he would manage to slip in the scene at exactly the right time, so that it would leave you shocked."

Make sure to check out her review on another James Patterson book/series, 

Read a review and pick up a book!
~It is fun~

thanks for swinging by my blog! Your daughter writes excellent book reviews.

If she keeps up the blog, I'm certain she'll be able to get free copies of YA and middle grades to read & review - All she needs to do is grow her readership and contact the PR departments of publishing houses - they will just send her copies! I've done a few myself but it's hard to keep up when I've got all the other things going on. Then Olivia can do fun things like autographed book giveaways and author interviews.

She can contact me at anytime (on my blog or website and I'll try to answer writing questions! :)
