Here is what readers have to say about C.R.I.M.S.O.N.:
"A new genre is created: Homeschool action thriller! The Vision is truly inspiring!"
Virginia T. - Homeschool mother of three young men.
"I thought the characters were so easy to relate to. Josh, Rebekah... I feel like I know them all. I think the book had a great message that people working together and with God can make a change for the better. ... It is easy to get wrapped up in the story and in the suspense at times. I can't wait to read what you have planned next."
Chandler L. - Homeschool Sophomore, speech and debate club competitor.
"I loved the suspense and action in this book. As the climax rose the mystery of the conflict and the apprehension of the main character created a tension that was addictive. A suspense that did not allow me to lay the book down. The history and relationships intertwined in such a way as to create a complicated, round conflict. I thoroughly enjoyed C.R.I.M.S.O.N."
Jules G. - Homeschool Freshman
"R. H. Krebs' portrayal of homeschooling, intense homeschool mothers and homeschool support groups, the complex relationships between homeschool fathers and kids, were rich snapshots of the unknown and often misunderstood world of homeschooling. C.R.I.M.S.O.N. encourages homeschool students to pursue futures in the legal and governmental spheres. The writing is sharp, the story is tight and the whole book is saturated with a dry intelligent wit. I loved it!"
Jess G. - Homeschool student and Westmont University journalism graduate.
