Bookish Review for “No Place for Kids”

This book is inspiring, eye opening and such an important read The influential Evie-Bookish Book Blog has given Alison Lohans’s novel No Place for Kids an outstanding review. Thank you, Debbie! I am not much of a fan of middle grade books as I’m much older than that. However, this book grabbed my attention from the first few pages. I felt drawn into the story of Jennifer and Sarah. They are children but are forced to grow up way too fast. They are children but are forced to fend for themselves. They are children but are forced to run in order to feed themselves.   This story is heartbreaking at times but something we should all take the time to read.

LitPick Reviews “And in the Morning”

Author John Wilson tells a fantastic story. His research on real letters, diaries and lives of soldiers in the Great War made the story heartbreakingly true as it followed historical events precisely… LitPick reviewer “ReesaOnFire,” a 17-year-old from Virginia, USA, has given And in the Morning four stars in her review for the preteen and teen book review website. Wilson creates a relatable gateway for young readers to learn about a period of trial in our world’s history through his choice to compile these entries from young Hay. I enjoyed And in the Morning and recommend it for readers aged 15 and up. LitPick.com was recognized by the American Association of School Librarians as a 2013 Best Website for Teaching and Learning
