This book was a great inspiration! I loved the author's way of showing young people that they can overcome hardships, regardless of their situation. This was done in a way that was entertaining. Great book for young people!
This was an easy to read, light book. I enjoyed to the plot of this book that contained just enough mystery to keep the romance interesting. It has been a long time since I have read a romance book, but this one entertaining enough to make me consider choosing this genre occassionally.
I kept putting off reading this book because it was a children's book and I wanted to read something else more. Well that was a mistake! I really enjoyed this book so much. The plot was engaging and kept me wanting more. This book was a great read.
I really enjoyed this book. At first it was difficult to get used to the slang and I would have preferred it to not have included so much. I had a hard time relating to Lamar because of the slang, but I did get very involved in the book. It was difficult, at times, to follow the story because the slang was so ethnic I did not understand what was being implied. Even with all the slang difficulties I really got attached to Lamar and found myself getting emotional in the story. There was one point when I cried, not just had tears! The reader can not help but feel for this poor young boy as he goes through difficulties. I think it was a good book with a great moral.
This was a great mystery. The story contained enough variety to keep the story flowing without loosing interest. The only drawback was the romantic tension between two of the characters. I felt it should have either played or been left out. On a whole this was a good book that I enjoyed, with plenty of action and suspense.
This is a great book! I really enjoyed reading about the family as they have progressed through the history of America. It was a well written book that provided entertainment value as well as historical perspective.
Loved this book! The plot grabs you from the first pages and it never lets you go. I would love to read more adventures of the characters in this book and see how things develop between them. I love this genre and will be looking for more books by this author.
