    In this Romantic Times Top Pick, Christy Award finalist Linda Nichols follows the wanderings of Miranda DeSpain, a young woman still haunted by a painful adolescent experience. When Miranda finds a clue to this mystery from her past, she travels to an idyllic Virginia town. There, an 11-year-old girl helps her find lodging and a job. Suspicious of strangers, the police chief discovers there's absolutely no record of Miranda. And then he notices his niece's picture among Miranda's belongings.

    This is a great book!...engrossing and inspiring with a very satisfying ending. As the story works it's way through the lives and perspectives of each character, I couldn't help comparing some of them to people I know and it actually gave me a greater ability to assume that the motivations of others are good, at least as good as they can be considering unknown circumstances.

    The book is very realistic as I have personally experienced similar miraculous circumstances that God has brought about to bring people together.

    Twelve-year old twins, Mika and Ellie, live in a future behind a wall - safe from the plague animals beyond. Or so they've been told. But when one of them disappears, and the other takes part in a sinister virtual reality game, they begin to discover their concrete world is built on lies. Determined to find each other again, they go in search of the truth. And as a strange sound in their heads grows to a roar, they find out that children and the planet have never mattered more.

    Story

    What do you know? A book can be written that is fun and exciting without filth, foul language and inappropriate content. My kids (early to mid teens) loved it. I did too actually! Can't wait for the sequel.

    Nine of us came here. We look like you. We talk like you. We live among you. But we are not you. We can do things you dream of doing. We have powers you dream of having. We are stronger and faster than anything you have ever seen. We are the superheroes you worship in movies and comic books—but we are real.

    Story

    The story was very interesting and exciting as I was listening with my kids. Then out of nowhere, part way into the book, starts some very bad language. We hoped it was isolated and wouldn't continue especially as the story itself was so good. However, it didn't stop and got worse. What we did was buy the hard copy of the book and I finished reading it out loud because like I said, the story line is very exciting and I could skip the bad words so the kids could finish the story. Something else you may want to know is that about half way through a romance starts that is described in a way that made me cringe and I skipped over that as well. Unmarried physical romance should not be glorified at any age let alone age 15 with a "beautiful" girl and "hero" type guy which every kid wants to be. As an aside, the "gorgeousness" of the lead girl is way overemphasized. "Gorgeous" girls didn't earn that somehow. They were accidentally born that way. Have your children read the Uglies Series. It is very good at undefining "pretty" and they are very thrilling action/fantasy/dystopia books that have a very few mild words like rhymes with 'kissed'. And in the second of the series a young couple lives together but they are literally brainwashed that it is okay and even encouraged by the dystopian society to do whatever you like (sounds familiar?) but nothing inappropriate is ever described or even hinted. Just that they live together.
