Well this week I recived a new Biik. A Place called Blessing by John Trent
When picked this biik I was really excited. O have not yet read The blessong but I have heard about it. I also mistankenly thought this was a true story.
But that was my fault.
I will be frank. I was dissapointed.
It was a short read which is fine but I didn't get any lesson from it abiut the Blessing until after the story and during the study guide.
The begining read well and belivable. Working with kids inn the system I could tell the author had experience as a child being in the system.
but thats where it ended.
I couldn't help but feel like I was reading a script for a Hallmark movie.
It was predictable and pretty mediocore. Withe the exception if Anna I didn't feel conected to any of the characters and Josh got on my last nerve. Mike was a nice change until he got all "over protective older brother" about josh dating his cousin.
I wouldn't recomend this to someone as just a great read but it did have it's moments. I think in a group reading setting and in conjuction with Reading the Blessing it wiuld be fine though.
I recived this book free of charge from book sneeze and the in no way influenced my revie. These are opinions are entirly my own.
