Book Review: The Weight of Silence by Gregg Olsen
The Weight of Silence by Gregg Olsen My rating: 4 of 5 stars This was an excellent read by any standards. There are two things that stand out for me. One, I kept forgetting the author is male.

The UK Version of America’s Indiebound

Book Review: Emmie of Indianapolis by Kay Castaneda

Book Review: Emmie of Indianapolis by Kay Castaneda
Emmie of Indianapolis by Kay Castaneda My rating: 5 of 5 stars This well-written coming of age novel has it all.
