Book Description

Book One in The Book of Sight Series

A book can be a wonderful gift.

When Alex received an unexpected package, she never dreamed the book it contained
would change her life forever. After all, the words inside were gibberish.

She had no idea the places that book would take her, the friends that book would help her
make or the wonders that book would reveal.

She had no clue the trouble that book would bring, either.

A book can be a dangerous gift.

When finished, continue the series with book two, The Broken Circle.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Magical, mysterious, suspenseful, adventurous April 1, 2013

    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    Four teenagers are given a book and their world changes. They start seeing things no one else sees. This creates a special bond. A fifth teenager joins their group, and together they explore the wonders and mysteries they encounter. The story weaves a wonderful, magical, mysterious tale around an adventure that is also fraught with danger. The book is a quick read that leaves you wanting for more.

    5.0 out of 5 stars A Treasure! April 11, 2013
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    The Book of Sight is the kind of book you can't put down even when you have more important things to do. It is a welcome relief to the poorly written, overly sensualized, melodrama that has become the genre of teen/tween lit today!

    Finally, a new book that a 28 year-old teacher can share with her students without blushing or stifling a yawn.

    4.0 out of 5 stars Great Story April 20, 2013
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    I really liked the story and how the characters are developed. My sole whinge is that the book concludes somewhat abruptly and leaves a lot of threads dangling. OK, I understand that this likely indicates a sequel is in the works, but there is a happy medium where a story can stand on its own and still enable a sequel.

    The formatting and editing was excellent, a definite improvement over the average eBook offering in this genre.

    A personal note of thanks to Mrs. Deborah Dunlevy who graciously and generously gave me this book in exchange for an honest review. I thank you!
    "In a plain house on a dull street in a nondescript neighborhood in a sleepy town near the mountains lived a girl named Alex." Fourteen year old Alex is an average teenage girl beginning her summer vacation. Dad's very preoccupied with work, Mom's no longer in the picture. As Alex is contemplating the summer stretching out before her, a messenger delivers a package. A book. No ordinary book. A book that will change her summer and change her future.

    Opening the book, Alex sees nothing but gibberish. Then, a language of sight appears. It's not as though she is reading the book, but she's living the book. Alex meets a number of other teens who have also received the book, and strange things begin to happen; or rather, they begin to see strange things. Things which they think may have always been there but suddenly they can see but other people cannot. As they try to figure out just what's going on and why they got the books, the books begin to disappear. Now they have another mystery on their hands.

    "It's hard to read but it's good to read. It's like The Book." Emily, 16, after chapter 4.

    "This is a confusing book, a deliciously confusing book!" Mom, not telling my age, after a few chapters.

    My kids did think that it moved a bit too slowly in the beginning of the book. They didn't want me to stop reading though. We just had to know what was going to happen next. There was interest that grew as the chapters unfolded. It was as though we were reading a whodunit, but we couldn't quite tell what it was that was done.

    4.0 out of 5 stars well written October 14, 2013
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    Considering it was written for teenagers, it was a well written book, but it requires you to read the sequel, so that kind of took away from the experience.

    It started out kinda slow for the first chapter because it was laying the foundation. But boy from the second chapter on it was one not to put down. Looking forward to reading the sequel.

    More About the Author

    Deborah Dunlevy was born in Indiana and grew up everywhere else. Even moving every year or two couldn't satisfy her desire for adventure, so she learned how to read and started taking trips into other people's lives. Eventually she grew up and went to college and got a respectable job as a teacher. Then she ditched that to go live on the other side of the world, where she had a few kids and learned what adventure was really about.

    Deborah now lives in Indianapolis with her husband, Nate, her three kids, and an Argentine hound dog. She spends her time making up stories and sometimes writing them down on her blog
