All The Answers
All the Answers - Michael Kupperman
I failed to see the humor that was described on the cover of this novel and what many individuals witnesses while reading this graphic novel. What I found while reading was a sad, moving story about an adult son who longed to know more about his aging father. I don’t know who I felt more compassion for after reading this graphic novel, Michael or Joel, as they both had faced some hardships during their lifetime.
 
The novel begins with Michael revisiting his childhood home. He’s on a mission, searching for something in his father’s study. He doesn’t know exactly what it is that he is searching for, but once he finds it, he knows that his search will be over.
 
Michael reminisces about his childhood and his current family life while he searches. Finally, Michael discovers some deteriorating scrapbooks hidden in his father’s study, his search is over. Michael has always wanted to know about his father’s childhood but his father has never wanted to talk about it. As adults, Joel finally agrees to talk to Michael but as they sit down and talk, Joel’s mind doesn’t recall many memories. Joel does remember that he didn’t feel like a genius which I thought was amazing after realizing he was on the show more than ten years. Michael still has many questions for his father that need answers and he reaches for the scrapbooks for answers.
 
It was entertaining how much information his grandmother included in the scrapbooks. I never realized how big prodigies were, back in the day. What his grandma was doing, was setting him up for stardom.
 
This book was a wakeup call for me to Joel and to what was actually happening on this show. Joel became the Quiz Kid, the most famous prodigy in America and possibly the world, just by being on this radio show. He was enjoying the fame and the stardom at first and then, the excitement died down yet Joel continued being on the show. Joel was the exception on this show and as I read, I began to wonder, why was he and for whom?
 
Joel seemed to have his own explanation for why things went the way they did for him. It made sense and it was sad that they used a child for this purpose. Michael does his research on what his father says and he begins to fully understand his own father. It’s sad that it’s taken all these years for them to see eye-to-eye. Even after quitting the show, Joel didn’t get to live a normal life, his days of being “normal” were over.
 
I felt that this graphic novel painted a picture for me, it showed me the story and gave me some details but now I want more. I felt some details were left out, details that I need to fully understand the whole story. This graphic novel was printed on cardstock paper which made it a very heavy, well-constructed novel. I enjoyed the illustrations, they weren’t too detailed but enough to describe the story.

Pluto Is Peeved
Pluto Is Peeved: An ex-planet searches for answers - Jacqueline Jules

One of the most stupid decisions of all time is was of course to demote Pluto from planet to dwarf planet. Cixin Liu’s SF series even suggests it will still be spoken of in 200 years! I for one, strongly feel for Pluto, so when I came across this little booklet in which Pluto searches for answers and struggles with the anxiety caused by the sudden change, I just had to read it.

It was a cutesy little book. Pluto, in a Science Museum, is looking why people would be investigating lots of things instead of him. Along the way he discovers that in science people have to changes ideas when new evidence arrives (think Galilei), and makes some friends. As a scientist I totally agree, as a person I feel for Pluto. Luckily its demotion doesn’t mean it will no longer be studied.

Thanks to the publisher and Netgalley for providing me with a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review!

Pluto Is Peeved: An ex-planet searches for answers by Jacqueline Jules
Pluto Is Peeved: An ex-planet searches for answers - Jacqueline Jules

Pluto is Peeved is a cute comic book style picture book. Pluto used to be the 9th Planet in our Solar System but has been demoted and he wants to know why. Pluto takes a trip through the museum to find out why he was demoted. On his journey he meets other exhibits from the largest to the smallest to find out why he was demoted. What he does learn is what all Scientists are interested in and learns that he himself is just one of those things. 

 

Cute interesting and educational book. The book has really great comic book style illustrations. At the back of the book there is an Authors note as well as the reason Pluto is no longer our 9th planet. As well as answers to some some of the questions brought p by the other exhibits in the book like dinosaurs and germs. There is also a glossary, further reading and websites to go along with the science brought up in the book. 

 

I received this book from the Author or Publisher via Netgalley.com to read and review.

MY REVIEW

 

Answers For Julie by Cate Beauman hooked me from the very beginning. It also ra

ises the question, do you like Prologues? After reading this one, you may be convinced.

Chase Rider is back in Bakersville, to fix up his grandmother’s home that he inherited when she died, and to sell it. He works for Ethan Security in Los Angeles and he is determined to head back as soon as possible. Little does he know that grandma had other plans for him. Memories surround him, so it’s off to get some comfort food, and I agree, pizza is the best. That is why I love Cate Beauman’s stories so much. She hits all the buttons and make me feel as if I am walking through the pages WITH the characters.

 

He, literally, bumps into Julie. She is as beautiful as ever. They had been childhood friends and sweethearts. It has been ten years, ten long years, since they have seen each other. The attraction for both of them has never left, but will they admit it? No way. In fact, Chase is being quite the **** and I wish he’d get over himself. lol

 

I wondered when the past would meet the future, but I did’t see this. I am only at 18% and lapping up the words like a thirsty dog. I can hardly wait to see how the story unravels. Now, I need to keep myself from racing through the pages so fast I miss the mysterious journey along the way.

 

A simple trip to the grocery store changed everything for Julie. Oh man, now I won’t be able to quit until the last page is read. A sense of anticipation overwhelms me and I see how Chase, the handsome hunk from Ethan Security, will come in handy, his tools, his connections with the FBI…I am at 30% and I cannot imagine what the next 70% will hold.

 

The romance is back and forth, yeah, expected that, but it’s not too much. Enough to seem real but not so much to make the story lag. Good job Cate. But what about the mystery? Seems cut and dried, so where are you taking this?

 

UH OH! I am a very suspicious and mistrusting person and I hope Julie is too.

 

I am always trying to figure out the story before I learn it and love when twists and turns keep my head spinning and my fingers flipping pages. I know I’ve been thinking of the right motive the whole time, but who is the villain? OH NO! I just thought…NO…that can”t be right. Then who?

 

My eyes are so blurry I can hardly see the words. I have to take a break.

 

OK, now I get why Miranda did what she did.

 

Every time I think the end has to be around the corner, Cate Beauman throws more mystery and danger at me. I love how she twists and turn me in the direction she wants me to go and I eagerly follow. I have a few suspects left…

 

Heartache, smiles, romance, love, mystery and danger. All the elements that make a perfect romantic suspense thriller, plus, putting this over the top!

 

I purchased Answer For Julie by Cate Beauman from Amazon back in October of 2016. I would have read it sooner had I known what I was missing.
