Cover Reveal #4 - Only For A Minute

 

I realize that sometimes the right love come along at the wrong time. I’m not naive, despite my age.

 

I’ve loved Clock my entire life, desperate for him to see me as more than just a ‘kid’. I thought that our history would make our bond unbreakable.

What I didn’t know, was that after we crossed that line, even if only for a minute, there was no going back.

 

This is a forbidden, age-gap, love story about Clock & Chloe. You can meet these characters in the book LIGHTER, but you don’t have to read that story before this one.

Lighter Than My Shadow
Lighter Than My Shadow - Katie Green Lighter Than My Shadow by Katie Green is the auto-biographic graphic novel about a girl with big issues who just wants to be happy. Katie deals with an eating disorder, anxiety and all the awkwardness of adolescence. At over 500 pages this is one huge graphic novel and it took the author almost five years to draw and write it. What made me want to read this book was that I had never heard of a biography in this format and I fell in love with the cover. When I saw the girl walking through the woods with a scribbled shadow behind her I had to find out more.

At the start you see an average girl with a perfect life. We also see her deal with problems in school, learning about her sexuality and the pressure that all kids go through to be accepted. Katie’s story is easy to relate to as you see her go through the awkward teenage years. She thinks that she will never find a boyfriend and worries about getting good grades. Katie wants to fit in but at the same time she wants to be happy. She struggles to accept her changing body and you see her deal with her feelings of being different from everyone else. Being a kid is hard and it seems to be even harder for Katie.

As the story goes on it gets more into Katie’s eating disorders and how it affects her life. It also gets into what causes her to begin her journey, starting with how other kids look at their bodies. Food becomes an obsession, not just eating it but how much weight she will gain if she does. She worries constantly about how food will affect her and her as her life goes into a downward spiral. I liked the attention to detail on her eating disorder but I felt that this part of the book was a little too long. I understood the point that was being made and less time could have been spent on it. At times the book felt like a long therapy session but I was rooting for Katie to find what she was looking for in life.

When one problem gets solved, other problems present themselves and you start to wonder if Katie will ever find happiness. Lighter Than My Shadow is one woman’s journey from a good childhood to being a troubled teenager to finally finding piece of mind. This book was obviously a labor of love and readers will be able to see some of their selves in Katie. She is looking for the same thing that everyone looks for which is happiness.

Lighter Than My Shadow
Lighter Than My Shadow - Katie Green
With over 500 pages, this graphic novel packs a powerful punch. This memoir begins as Katie is a small child and she begins to have negative feelings about food. These feelings are just the beginning as Katie begins to experience some OCD behaviors that will carry over into her adult life.
 
While her peers were anxious to grow up, Katie didn’t want to. She wasn’t interested in fashion and boys; Katie’s main concern was to be the perfect student. I loved that she tried to get advice from her parents as she matured when she approached them to talk to them about her concerns. What upset me sometimes was the response her parents would give her, they seemed too extreme, either too carefree or too strict in their attitude towards her issues. Times change and it was now in Katie’s life that she began to consume large amounts of food and her views started to change. She started to be concerned about her body image and she became curious about boys, but she felt herself unworthy of their attention. As the bullying continues, Katie begins to use food as her coping mechanism. Her self-esteem suffers and her thoughts scared me. Just when I think that Katie is going to find healing, the novel takes off and Katie is out of control. She becomes a victim of sexual abuse which just adds more fire to the issues Katie is trying to control. Food becomes a bigger issue and I loved the illustrations that portrayed this portion of her life. I appreciated Katie’s honesty in this novel as I could feel the emotions she was experiencing in the writing and in the illustrations. I really enjoyed this graphic novel although the subject matter was a difficult one.
 
I received a copy of this novel from NetGalley and the publisher in exchange for an honest review.

Lighter of Gospel Fires: The Story of J.N. Loughborough
Lighter of gospel fires: John N. Loughborough - Ella May White Robinson

The long life of Seventh-day Adventist preacher John N. Loughborough saw many in the world and in the development of the Adventist movement from William Miller to the Seventh-day Adventist church.  In Lighter of Gospel Fires: The Story of J.N. Loughborough, Ella M. Robinson recounts the service of one of the Seventh-day Adventist church’s first ordained ministers and pioneer into many fields of ministry not only through his owns words but her interactions with him when she was a young girl growing up.

 

Born in upstate New York, John N. Loughborough was the son of a carpenter and deacon of the local church and throughout his early life was always around hard work and Christian fellowship.  Soon after losing his father at age seven Loughborough went to live with his grandfather and the family joined the Adventist movement started by William Miller soon afterwards.  Even before the Great Disappointment Loughborough learned that some ministers would not tolerate Biblical beliefs contradicting human traditions.  Soon after beginning his own life-long service of preaching at age seventeen, Loughborough encountered many of these worldly ministers as well as the challenges and triumphs that came preaching the word.  Within several years of beginning his preaching career, Loughborough was convinced of the Seventh-day Sabbath and soon encountered other Sabbath-keepers within the Adventist movement, James and Ellen White.  Along with the White, John Andrews, and many other church pioneers, Loughborough and his family would cross the United States to bring the ‘midnight cry’ to those that hadn’t heard it.  But Loughborough wouldn’t find the fruits of his efforts only in the immediate locations where he preached, but across the country and then around the world.

 

The nearly 170 pages of text, albeit in large font, and the composition quickly denote this book for teen as well as relating the time when it was first published over 50 years ago.  Although primarily a biography of J.N. Loughborough, Robinson related many side incidents surrounding him that added to the overall book.  Robinson also illustrated the development of the Seventh-day Adventist church through Loughborough’s own career not only to show his importance but also how all the pioneers of that time sacrificed and contributed to building up of the church.

 

Lighter of Gospel Fires is an informative, yet short biography of church pioneer J.N. Loughborough that is an easy read for teens who are not interested in having to read a dry book.  Ella M. Robinson not only relates the life of the longtime Adventist preacher, but also looks into how the Seventh-day Adventist church had developed by the time of Loughborough’s death.  Although not perfect, this book is a nice Sabbath read that I would have loved reading when I was a teen.
