Kissing Tennessee: Stories for real teens

Kissing Tennessee: And Other Stories from the Stardust Dance - book cover picture

Kissing Tennessee addresses the real-life challenges teenagers today are dealing with; with emotion-charged stories that let teenagers know they are not alone on their journey through life. Kathi Appelt writes for young adults, as young adults. Ms. Appelt does not sugar coat any bitterness of the conflicting feelings of puberty. As a youth leader, working with middle and high school age teens on a daily basis, I highly recommend "Kissing Tennessee." Many young people will be able to identify with the characters in the stories in "Kissing Tennessee." It will affirm young readers own feelings and realities, letting them know they are worthy human beings; regardless of the tragedies they have encountered, and like the characters at the Stardust Dance, they too are capable of overcoming, succeeding and dancing as they slip and slide on the waltz to adulthood.

I read this book because it was my second choice, and because everyone else was reading it. Jack Daw loves birds, any types of birds. One day Jack and his class went a field trip to the local zoo. He finds himself looking straight at a nine foot tall, 345 pound ostrich! Then Jack comes up with a plan. Jack steals an extra ostrich egg that's about to be fed to a snake! Then he brings the ostrich egg back home to his family's farm. If you want to find out what happens to the ostrich egg, and you like birds, read this book! It's very interesting!

We read this book to our 7-year-old and 4-year-old. Our 4yo needed quite a few words and situations explained, but still enjoyed the action, and kept asking for one more chapter! Our 7-year-old was so enthralled, she talked her 1st grade teacher into reading it to the class. The whole class loved it. The main character disobeys his parents to enter the race, so this issue should be discussed. Overall, the story is well written, and exciting, but I would recommend it for kids older than mine. Try it with younger ones to stretch their vocabulary (just plan on spending a little more time). A good book!

Faith of My Fathers - book cover picture

I don't usually buy hard cover books, but I bought three copies of this one, two as gifts for others. The family saga that McCain recounts is so well told, so gripping, and so inspiring that it should be required reading by all Americans who think that honor and integrity no longer exist and can't be found in our political life. They are present in abundance in this fascinating narrative by a true American hero. McCain's book recounts a memorable family saga, his own youth, and later years of captivity in Vietnam with unsparing candor, yet with much grace, intelligence, warmth, and a lot of humor. This isn't a campaign biography, it is a memorable tribute by one son to a military family from whom much was asked and by whom much was given. I highly recommend it.

John McCain's Faith of My Fathers Shows His Character

Book title: Faith of My Fathers
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Audio Cassette
Faith of My Fathers - book cover picture

Senator John McCain's biographical book, Faith of My Fathers is not only unique in that it details McCain's experiences as a POW in Hanoi during the Viet Nam war, but it is a window into the man's soul. He describes the life and Navy careers of his father and grandfather, two men he not only loved deeply, but felt tremendous respect for. McCain values honesty and character more highly than any other attributes a person can possess, something not usually professed by a political person. I would recommend this book to anyone wanting a different perspective on the Viet Nam War, and wanting to know John McCain better. He is an extraordinary human being.

Murder in Greenwich: Who Killed Martha Moxley? - book cover picture

This book was given me as a gift. I ended up reading it in less than two days! Each chapter gripped me with it's thorough research and detail. Mark Fuhrman is truly a brilliant author and he didn't leave any stone unturned. Even though he was greeted in Greenwich with hostility and no cooperation, under these difficult conditions, he still managed to turn out a spellbinding book. I can't wait to read his other book, murder in Brentwood. And I'm also thrilled that this book helped bring another Kennedy relative to face the law for his crime.

Talion : Revenant - book cover picture

I'm a big star wars fan and I needed a break from all that stuff even though it is great. So I decided to read this by Stackpole, my favorite author and the author of the X-Wing novels. This was also my first fantasy novel. This book turned out to be the best I ever read. While the way he writes it is confusing because he goes from when Nolan's a novice to when he's a full justice chapter by chapter, you get the swing of it later on in the book. Toward the end it got a little confusing, but after finishing it I looked back on what I read and I began to understand it. If you want a GREAT book, this is what you need.

A Lesson Before Dying - book cover picture

All I can say is, I have never been one to be able to shed tears from reading a book. I'm much more visual and usually need a movie to do that. But this book had me absolutely sobbing at the end. A gripping, emotional and all too "real" novel about a man in the wrong place at the wrong time with the wrong color of skin and no education to release him of guilt. The last few chapters that included his journal were heart-wrenching. Gaines is a wonderful writer. This book should be a mandatory read in High Schools across America.

Out to Canaan (The Mitford Years) - book cover picture

Living in a small town myself I could give each character a face in this wonderful series(Mitford Years)by Jan Karon. After reading Home in Mitford, I went to check out A Light in the Window, the second of the series, and found the book missing from the local library. I found out my neighbor had it and begged her to please let me have it while she finished another book she was reading. You can do this in a small town. The Mitford years are the most heartfelt and relaxing books I have ever read. Jan has a way of speaking to your heart and making you feel very much a part of Mitford. Jan please don't stop here, your books are absolutely the best ever. These books have renewed my faith in God and made me value my friends even more.

Read it again and again... Aebi's adventures never get old!

Book title: Maiden Voyage
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Paperback
Maiden Voyage - book cover picture

The amazing story of an 18 year old who sets out to see the world. However, unlike the majority of us who board a 747 and are at our destination a few hours later, Aebi travels around the world alone on a sailboat. Her adventures are really interesting and her story is inspiring. At times, the book is a bit technical (it *is* a sailing book), but even for those of us who have never sailed before in our lives, her accounts of her past and her travels really make the book enjoyable and understandable. I've read it several times and it has always managed to inspire me. Never a boring read.
