Queen Victoria spent the majority of her reign wearing black, to mourn the death of her husband Albert. Yet, she is credited with kicking off a very different fashion trend: Brides wearing white on their wedding day.

I have reached a heartbreaking decision. Starting today I will NOT accept any more books for review. I will continue to work on the books I have. If you'd rather I didn't please send me an email and I will delete the copy you sent me or send the books back. No one but me has access to the books sent for review, so there isn't a need to worry someone else will have them. It's been 11 years of reading and reviewing for authors all over the world. I have given 110% to my blog and the authors. I've always posted my reviews in more places than anyone else. Right now it's right at 30 places. It takes a lot of time to read the book, then write the review and make sure it gets posted on 30 different sites.

This book is a good one. It's hard to read, in a way, because of the hard story it tells. It hits at the center of your heart and then shreds it. It's an important story to be told though. Too many live like this. The writing is good. The characters well defined and three dimensional. I recommend this one for teens and adults. It will give you a clearer center of gravity. It will teach valuable lessons. Add it today to your TBR pile or library.
I did find issues. It really drags. It beats a point to death. It jumps to too many characters. Keep it somewhat simple. Last, it isn't as focused as it could be.
I gave this one 3 cheers out of 5 because of the issues above.

This is truly a spectacular book! It's well written and the research for it it spot on. The characters could have been the kids from my neighborhood. I find it very easy to get wrapped up in this book. It's not only for teens but adults too. I hadn't heard of some of the things discussed in this book. It is a bit technical in spots but I doubt any teen or adult will have much trouble with it. This should be part of your teens library! I believe Dr. Schewe struck gold here!
I didn't find any issues.
I gave this one 5 cheers out of 5 because it has all the things teens like. You'll see, they will love it.

I LOVE this movie. It is exciting and funny and you'll be glad you watched it. Madame C. J. Walker as Sarah became known later, worked hard and didn't let anyone stand in her way. This is a strong, passionate and wonderfully written piece. I highly recommend this book to everyone. Sarah shows us perseverance is the key to moving ahead. It's a definite must have in your library.

I gave this one 5 cheers out of 5 because it will open your eyes.
