Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Gr. 7-12. The book of Proverbs may seem unlikely fodder for teen readers: the verses are quaint, archaic, and often cryptic. Even so, some hit the bull's-eye with their relevancy. In his examination of these ancient writings, Carlson invites teens to ponder distinctions between wise people and fools: fools don't think they need advice; fools give full vent to anger; and a fool is like the dog that returns to its vomit. Using the New Living Translation, Carlson paraphrases the Scriptures and then clearly applies them to familiar circumstances and relationships--family, money, etc. The proverb "Fires go out for lack of fuel and quarrels disappear when gossip stops" may sound like a quote from someone's great-grandmother, but the words might just make teens stop and think.

More About the Author

Melody Carlson has written more than 200 books (with sales around 6.5 million) for teens, women and children. That's a lot of books, but mostly she considers herself a "storyteller." Her novels range from serious issues like schizophrenia (Finding Alice) to lighter topics like house-flipping (A Mile in My Flip-Flops) but most of the inspiration behind her fiction comes right out of real life. Her young adult novels (Diary of a Teenage Girl, TrueColors etc.) appeal to teenage girls around the world. Her annual Christmas novellas become more popular each year. She's won a number of awards (including Romantic Time's Career Achievement Award, the Rita and the Gold Medallion) and some of her books have been optioned for film/TV. Carlson has two grown sons and makes her home in the Pacific Northwest with her husband and yellow Lab dog. To find out more about Melody Carlson, visit her website at
