The book begins with name-calling and swear words are introduced further long and near the end of the storyline. To be honest, the words used were used in context and they do give the storyline authenticity. I could even say that the author watered down a lot of the terms that she used. She Named Me Wolf is a story of friendship and growth. It has unforgettable characters and brings a new light on abusers and victims alike. The main character, Wolf, has a very difficult life at home, and the person – or should I say ghost – that helped Wolf cope and survive was a phantom by the name of Polly.
Simon Lord has it all—the beautiful fiancé, the loving family, the sprawling mansion, and the famous last name. Little does he know that what is supposed to be the happiest day of his life will become his last.

The Abbey Mystery is a perfect blend of the classic Austen style and a Nancy Drew mystery. Jane Austen is a spirited young woman, sent to the Cromwell household to keep company with Lady Cromwell for a week until her son’s birthday party and ball. She is pretty bored from her obligation but soon she finds out a legend about a vengeful ghost that haunts the Abbey next to the house so she decides to investigate. Will Jane be able to stay out of trouble as was recommended by her mother? Or will she give in to her curiosity?
MOSAIC by CHRIS ASLAN is the story of a young girl's journey from the highest village on the side of the Many Peaked Mountain to life as a merchant in Damascus. It is also the story of her spiritual journey, from being not very religious to earnestly follow Yeshua, the Teacher, after she witnesses miracles, and also after she herself is delivered from unforgiveness and hatred. I enjoyed reading about village life in the snow-clad mountains about a Great Lake and Blood City.
