Maggie Wheatley, 15, of Weston, Fla., was having such an awesome experience reading Maggie Vaults Over the Moon, that she just had to Tweet about it, and Tweet! about it, and Tweet!-Tweet!-Tweet! about it:
“New book and it’s so good!” “I just spent the last 5 hours reading and I only have 10 chapters left.” “There’s a code among vaulters, they help each other.” “I just bawled at the end!” “I love it when you read that 1 out of a 1,000 books that you will carry with you forever.” “I just finished this book and absolutely loved it. Maggie makes the shelf!”
As heroine Maggie Steele was capturing Maggie Wheatley’s heart, her enthusiastic Tweets captured the heart of the book’s author, Grant Overstake. “It was exciting to see her enthusiasm growing and growing, all the way to the end of the story. It was a win-win experience,” he said.
Wheatley, our Book Review Contest Winner for July, wins a Maggie Vaults Over the Moon tee-shirt, and Maggie wins a new best friend!
In addition to her Tweets, Maggie submitted this review:
Three words came to mind as I was traveling black-inked roads of this story — Bravery, Love, and Family — and that is all you need to know. I can’t say anything more to make you want to read it, because anything I say cannot measure up to the overwhelming emotion I felt reading this book. It makes you feel as if the experiences Maggie Steele has are happening to you, in the flesh. When I say I couldn’t put the book down, I proved it by staying up until 5 a.m., reading through the night, or, should I say, pole-vaulting through the night. When your eyes read the words, your heart feels the movement. I would recommend this book to any vaulter, teenager, sibling, parent, and anyone who thrives for greatness. I conclude with, Once you read it, you will never be the same. And one day, you might vault over the moon. – Maggie Wheatley, Weston, Florida
