I immediately went and purchased the first book from these young authors and send it to my daughter’s kindle and she started that book the moment she was done with The Perfect Summer. I skimmed over the book and read bits and pieces and it didn’t take long for me to realize that we have three young ladies who are going to be fantastic authors as adults if they keep this up. They are natural born story tellers who know how to relate to teenagers through stories of morals, values and compassion. As a mother I highly recommend these books for your young readers.
Faith’s review (age 12)
I loved all three stories. My favorite story was the second one, A Lesson for Summer. I think I like it more
because I could understand the characters more. I could relate to the stories more than other
stories I have read because it was like talking to my best friend instead of grown-ups.
I love how they all put their own touch it every story. My
favorite characters are Vanessa and Teresa. They are my favorite because they
are twins that stick together in every situation. I don’t always like to read but I didn’t want to stop reading this one and already like their first book. It is nice to know that kids can be authors too.
Too Big for Teacups by Gabrielle Simone helps the readers realize the value of family and the good times we always take for granted. Teenage is the time when we think ourselves to be suddenly independent and just want to do our own thing. This story reminds us to appreciate what we have.
A Lesson for Summer by Jackie Lee brings out the drama any parent will face if they move to a new or small town especially when holidays are around. A move to a new place can be quite unsettling for children and Jackie brings out how sharing and helping can help us make friends easily. To adjust in any new place takes time and effort, it can be difficult for children as well as adults. Keeping an open mind and working together makes all the difference.
A Country Summer by Morgan Billingsley describes every gadget savvy kid’s nighmare! No TV, no WiFi and no smart phones are what the twins, Max and Micky find themselves with. To top it off they have a bunch of cousins who have strange games and ideas that make the twins heads spin. A new place, new environment and lots of family teach a lot of valuable lesson to the kids.
All the three stories have the same theme, of family, love, bonding, respect and celebrating the importance of what life offers us. I enjoyed reading this book and look forward to more from these spunky girls. I recommend this book for all teenagers – a must read.

"Too Big for Teacups" by Gabrielle Simone tells the story of a young girl that is spoiled with a life style that most girls her age don't get the luxury to have. I love that the author was able to bring me back to my childhood days. Living in the urban community none of the kids around me had the luxury of leaving the projects. I did and I complained every time I had to go away for the summer.
"A Lesson for Summer" by Jackie Lee tells the story of two twins extremely spoiled. Vanessa and Teresa are both disappointed when they discover the mansion they thought they were going to be living in turns out to be smaller than the house they left. I love that the author made them see how ungrateful they are by using younger characters that have been through really rough times.
"A Country Summer" by Morgan Billingsley also tells the story of two twins extremely spoiled. Mickey and Max happen to be my favorite characters and the reason being is although neither one wanted to go away, Max quickly adapted to the transition. Mickey is very outspoken and has no problem with speaking her mind even if that means hurting someone else's feelings. I love that the author was able to create drama amongst Mickey and her cousins and later regardless of how mean she was they forgave her.
I think that the three young authors wrote a wonderful book and they have a very promising future. "The Perfect Summer" ended up being the perfect book to read!
