More About the Author

Brenda McCreight Ph.D. is an author, speaker, and therapist as well as the mother of 14. Brenda entered the adoption world as the young adoptive mom of a 14 month old boy with undetermined "special needs". Those special needs were later diagnosed as fetal alcohol spectrum disorder, but at the time, so little was known about it that her family couldn't even get a diagnosis, let alone find any resources. Fortunately, as a family therapist, she was able to access the scientific research. She read what little she could find, and then she began putting on workshops for other parents and professionals so that they could learn to recognize the symptoms and create ways to help their children who carried the diagnosis that would soon become so common in the adoption field. Over the next 30 years, she adopted 12 more children and kept on top of the newest research on neuroscience so that she could provide effective counseling, parent coaching, and training. So far, she's written four books about adoption - they are "Recognizing and Managing Fetal Alcohol Syndrome/Effects" and "Parenting Your Older Adopted Child" and "Eden - The Story of an Older Child Adoption" and her most recent book "Help-I've Been Adopted". Brenda is the author of numerous magazine articles on adoption and has been given the Adoption Activist Award in 2003 by the North American Council on Adoptable Children. Brenda also enjoys writing fiction. She currently has several on Kindle including "Cleah: The Lost Fury Chronicles" and "Good Enough: A Shay James Mystery" and "Regards..." a book of short stories. More fiction books will be coming soon. She can be contacted by email at brendamccreight@gmail.com or through her blog at http://www.brendamccreight.blogspot.com

As a foster parent, I know it can be hard to find realistic stories featuring foster kids. Most stories either paint foster kids as juvenile delinquents or as pitiful little angels with a Pollyanna complex. I was impressed and refreshed to find a young adult novel which actually contains a realistic, but lovable young heroine in foster care.

The book, "Good Enough: A Shay James Mystery", which was written by Brenda McCreight, not only contains an interesting mystery for young sleuths, but it also tells a story that many children share, a history of neglect and abuse. Like many real-life foster children, Shay James spent much of her life with parents who put their addictions before their children. She learned early to fend for herself and to expect her world to change at a moment's notice.

Just when Shay finally finds some stability, her happiness is once again put at risk by the illegal actions of others. Shay is happy to have found a foster home where she is comfortable, but what truly excites her is the nearby stable where she is able to ride and take care of horses. However, Shay's world is rocked once again when a crime occurs at the stable. Unless the culprit is found, Shay and her friends are told that they can't return to the stable. Even worse, the stable owner is now threatening to sell the horses and the stable! Determined to save the horses, Shay and her friends decide to investigate on their own.

Although Shay makes some questionable decisions in the book and finds herself in serious danger, she displays many fine qualities such as resourcefulness, loyalty, friendship, compassion and maturity. By the time the story ends, Shay James has become a wiser teenager who has finally found what she was looking for all along...

This novel was good for the younger generation to read. Age 9 13 would most likely enjoy it. I can only give it two stars.

There are scarcely words to express how I felt reading this book. Shay is an incredible girl, full of fun, and she acts like many other teenage girls do; she has fun going out with a friend, she talks to her closest friends about secret crushes, and listens to other girls gushing about " droolie" guys. Don't ask me where that word came from... ask the foster girl that lives in the same foster home as Shay. Larissa; a twelve year old girl who wants desperately to be included in everything that is going on with the two older girls. Over all, I really like the reality of this book. I can honestly say that the two and a half hours it took me to read this( I am a very fast reader...)

I liked this story. Although it was a bit predictable, it was well written. The characters were real. The ending brought tears to my eyes. I think anyone who loves horses,, and kids, would like this one.
