Book Review: The Time Traveler’s Wife by Audrey Niffenegger

The story is about Henry DeTamble is a time traveler, the next evolution of humans, only that he can’t control where or when he’s going – and he can’t take anything with him and that includes clothes and even tooth fillings but he does return with the bruises and injuries he has incurred.

Book Review: Grandpa’s Mountain by Arieh Larkey

I thought this was a sweet, short book. No 12-year-old I know would use the language or vernacular you Mr. Friedman of New Jersey would use, but I understand the mechanics of trying to convey so much information to a young audience.

Book Review: All He Saw Was The Girl by Peter Leonard
