Book Spotlight: Battle of the Bullies by Fenyx Blue

Ebony, Eris, and Emani Robertson have been through so much more than most high school freshmen.

After giving homeschooling a try, they enroll in a promising new academy, hoping for the best.

The Robertson triplets soon discover, however, that their new classmates are anything but kind. A mysterious group of bullies known as the Dimes rules the hallways and spreads fear everywhere they go. All three sisters end up being targets of the gang and have to find a way to defend themselves. Can they bring down the Dimes while trying to make it through the ninth grade?

Princess Lillian and Grandpa’s Goodbye by Jenny Fulton

Princess Lillian and Grandpa’s Goodbye is a heartwarming story to help children cope with loss.

Princess Lillian visits Grandpa in the hospital, where she learns he is going to his forever-kingdom home. It makes Daddy and Lillian sad, but her grandpa seems happy. That’s when he tells her about his best friend, the Great King Above the Nations, how the Great Spirit helps us understand, and how wonderful our forever-kingdom home is.

Princess Lillian and Grandpa’s Goodbye is a beautifully illustrated story sharing the joy of everlasting life with a Navajo influence. Lillian is dressed as a princess and an Angel comforts her as she goes to say her goodbyes.

One of the lovely things about this story is that it helps us realize how similar the stories of God are throughout different cultures and how important the gift of everlasting life remains.

Highly recommended.

Book Spotlight: Amiranda: Princess Amiranda and the Tale of the Deciduous Forest by John P. Adamo

AMIRANDA: PRINCESS AMIRANDA AND THE TALE OF THE DECIDUOUS FOREST
By John P. Adamo
Juvenile/Tweens

An instant classic tale portraying the life of “Amiranda,”an innocent and brave princess, who unwittingly sets out on a quest that will ultimately determine the fate of her entire kingdom.

From her castle window, Amiranda would gaze at the beautiful countryside below-always watching carefully, always observing everything. Gradually the princess realizes that she knows very little
of the small kingdom over which she would one day reign.

Nevertheless, Amiranda would never disobey her father’s wishes, especially the one to never enter the mysterious dark forest, which borders their kingdom. That is, until one day when she would have no other choice.

Amiranda will take a journey that will lead her on a wild adventure, where the decisions she makes will determine the fate of many lives-the lives of her animal friends, her family members, those who dwell in her kingdom, and her very own life as well. Travel along on this trip where Princess Amiranda hopes to find the missing piece in her existence and ends up trying to achieve the impossible….

John Adamo is a Long Island-based author and songwriter who has copyrighted more than four hundred poems and has both written and composed numerous songs and short stories. Music has always been an integral part of John’s life, as he has performed at different venues all across Long Island—both as a professional pianist since the age of seventeen (one year after his father passed away) and also as a disc
jockey / emcee for various private parties and public events.
This is John’s first formal work, which was originally written as a screenplay and copyrighted in 1998. John has always had the visualization that an animated movie would one day be made from his work. The author wanted to put together a story unlike any other, and one that could be enjoyed by people of all ages … both young and old alike. A story that reinforced good values, covered common ethics, and taught morals as John feels those important criteria are so often left out in today’s modern fairy tales.
After having the screenplay sit on his shelf for nearly fifteen years, John felt that it was finally time to let the world know the life and world of Amiranda—a Cinderella-type princess who has everything in the world that a princess could possibly ask for, but is still missing something more in her life. With your help, John hopes that he can help fulfill Amiranda’s aspirations, hopes, and dreams. Last but not least, John hopes you like Amiranda’s story just as much as he enjoyed writing it … Enjoy!
