That being said, these are good stories. Though written for pre-teens, Celesta kept me involved and entertained. In such a short format, it’s impossible to draw out the drama. But she does well, given the tight space constraints.
Short story series might be necessary
I know many cannot or do not read today. With readers having the attention span of a gnat, this type of series might well be necessary.
The world-building is sparse. But, that’s due to the brevity of the stories. It’s enough to enable the suspension of unbelief so I could enjoy the various elements of the story.
Spiritually, there’s nothing here
This is just a clean read. However, in looking over the descriptions of the other six books in the series, it reaches at least Christian and possibly Redemptive by the end of the series.
All things considered, your mid-school children will enjoy this one. The same is true for early teens. But, it’s a bit thin for teens and young adults.
I could see the story unfolding in front of me. I liked both Chrissy and Michael, and I have to see if there is a second book with a new adventure for them.
Super job Celesta! By Angela
The plot and storyline were well-developed and new information was constantly being revealed in order to keep the reader engaged. The characters, Chrissy and Michael, were well-rounded and likeable which made it easy to want to root for them to succeed in the end. The novel was full of suspense and drama, especially during the part where Chrissy meets her father for the first time in a very long time. There really was not a dull moment in this novel.
(I received this book from the author in exchange for a review. My daughter read the novel and created the review.)
