Your book was probably the most pure and wholesome young adult book I've ever read.

“It’s one of the most pure and wholesome young adult books I’ve ever read.” — Shannon Clark

Thanks to Shannon Clark of I Run Read Teach   for an Awesome Review:

You know that saying — “Don’t judge a book by its cover”? Well, it applies to this book. Most definitely! Grant Overstake, the author, contacted me about reading his book and reviewing it on my blog. I am so glad I did.

It’s a young adult book that’s appropriate for young adults as well as 4th and up. When do you ever find a young adult book like that? Some words that would best describe it would be- PURE, WHOLESOME, GENUINE -those can also describe Maggie, the main character.

Not an inappropriate word throughout the entire book. No inappropriate content either. I mean that’s a hard find in today’s world! It’s one of the most pure and wholesome young adult books I’ve ever read.

Maggie has to endure a tragic event in her life and does a swell job. At one point I started wondering if Maggie was too good to be true-maybe a goody two shoes and not realistic. However, she still had a few “teenage” moments-they were just watered down from what you normally read about.

I LOVED the farming life in the book as well as the track and field aspect. But what I really loved was the “character” of Maggie. She has a lot of it. It was one of those books that left me with a good feeling even though I did shed a few tears while reading it.

5 out of 5 stars

I was not paid for this book review. All opinions are my own.
