The Poacher's Son

 I had the privilege to have the opportunity to read "The Poacher's Son"  by Paul Doiron as a part of BN's First Look club. I was not sure what to expect, except that it was a mystery. I enjoy mystery's and this one did NOT fail me!! I was a great read and read it all in one day! I thought that "The Poacher's Son" fascinating. The characters and the plot were well developed. The plot had many twists and turns. The setting of camp in the woods of Maine was quite accurate!. A fun week-end read!

Dear Readers: Read this book!!

"Dear Lilly" by Peter Greyson, is an awesome 'guide to life' written by a father to his preschool daughter. I picked it up and absolutely could not put it down! I read it in one day, and read it again and again. It cuts straight through the heart with " Mr G's" personal stories. Before I had finished, I had already decided that I would be buying several for my HS reading group. I teach in an inner-city HS and feel that "Dear Lilly" will have a profound effect on my students. His experiences will help my students understand their own lives, and that they are not alone in their. I highly recommend "Dear Lilly" for every teen and adult. Thank you Peter for opening up yourself! It should become a required read in every HS!
