Imagine: The Great Flood by Matt Koceich
The Great Flood - Matt Koceich The Great Flood - Matt Koceich

“Imagine: The Great Flood” is a short, quick read. Combining a time-travel adventure with Biblical history, Koceich crafts an inspirational story for young readers, drawing parallels between the two. The tale opens in modern-day Texas, where ten-year-old Corey Max is having a hard time dealing with an upcoming move that his family will be making to Florida. He suddenly finds himself immersed in ancient Mesopotamia, where preparations for Noah’s ark are almost complete. However, powerful opposition threatens to interrupt the project and bring harm to Noah’s family. As Corey works together with Noah’s sons, he comes to understand similarities to his own situation and wonders if he will ever have a chance to get back home. Although this is a short book, it packs plenty of action and lessons about trusting God into its pages, making it a great choice for kids.

Review: The Englisher
The Englisher - Beverly Lewis

The Englisher appear the focus of this story or mostly part of the story. Beverly does do this gradually. Annie Zook has some struggles to keep the promises that she made with her father who by the way is the preachers.

 

We go through the struggles with Annie. There another struggle that going on as well. Zeke is struggling with something and it does take the whole book to figure it out. There are surprises and twists throughout the book.

Review: Hidden
Hidden - Vannetta Chapman

Hidden is a story. Vannetta Chapman does a wonderfully job with the plot of this book. It action packed from the beginning to the end. You are pulled into this book from first few pages.

 

You think this book is a thriller from the way it written and told. We learn about Ben Marshall and Dana Jacobs. We are surprised and twists. What is Dana running from? She does not tell us or do we discover completely until end. I do not want to spoil it for you.

 

Jacobs has a staff of some dedicated members and it to Homeland security. We know someone is after something or someone. There a call that comes in at the school as if it a bomb but you do not now and then there an attack or threat of one. It gets more action packed from there.

 

If you are a thriller, Mystery, action fan, you get many it all. Though it looks like there some Christian talk in here about god. I mean there is some if not more than enough. Will Dana get over her fears or will she not?

Becoming Bea
Becoming Bea - Leslie Gould

Becoming Bea is about a girl and family. It looks into the relationship of Bea and Ben. They both have trouble communicating with one another. Bea hears Nan has just had triplets from a member of her community.

 

She wants to help out and so offers. There is matchmaking going on. Will Bea lean to communicate or will she not. She believes she made to be a spinner or old maid as the Amish like to call it.

 

The author does a decent job. Thought the plot of the story make me wonder what it really about. We do know that Molly is married. Bea does not want to move and be with her older sister and her husband.

 

Like I stated the author is good. It just do not know what the main plot of the story is about other than Ben and Bea have problems with communications. You figure that out early enough. Now if the author plot is to see the couple can figure it out and finally get together. Maybe what it was about. But to me it was unclear exactly what the plot was about.

 

The author does wonderfully for Minding Molly and Courting Cate and their plots. It not so confusing as Becoming Bea. Maybe it to see how Bea grows from a girl to a young woman.

 

You have the option to read it and decide yourselves. I believe this is an okay book. My only problem with the story and book is the plot nothing more.
