|New from||Used from|
"I loved this book. The characters are quirky, fun...If this book is made into a movie I would definitely watch it. I loved all the thoughts that go on in Robin's mind. I also loved Creek: his loving and caring character. The way he protects everyone makes him a real hero, even if he does it in a not-so-legal way. Overall, the story is great and the characters are well-developed." -Lorena Sanqui, Readers' Favorite Book Review
"If you don't fall in love with the entire gang at Turtles Shores and the adventures and magic that permeate each page, you may need to check if you are breathing! -Dianne Bylo, Amazon Top Reviewer

From the first scene, told in a convincing first-person teen voice, to the last, Robin in the Hood is delightfully tongue in cheek, randomly crazy, and humorously odd. It tells of a teen coming of age, family trust lost long ago, the dawning of love, and the bombing of bad guys with trebuchets and jello pits. But there’s wisdom and mystery hidden under the crazy action, quick-fire dialog, and rapid romance. Creek, though mystically odd, repeatedly retreats to an appropriate distance. Robin, though over-the-top and wild, slowly learns there’s more to love and rejection than quick assumptions. Prayers, though no one is sure who they’re sent to, are answered. And a nicely modern Robin Hood theme slips pleasingly into the space around a hidden lake.
This isn’t the sanitized Robin Hood where rich people never get hurt. Nor is it the overly-socially-conscious sort that agonizes over other poeple’s pain. Rather it’s a quick sharp romp through modern fantasy, blending fairytale, romance, excitement and fun in well-measured portions—a fast, cool, highly recommended read.
Disclosure: I was given a free ecopy during the author’s blog tour. I’m just sorry it took me so long to get around to reading it.
