I just had the chance to read Sky Pony Press’ newest middle grade novels, and boy, are they great! I don’t think you have to be in middle school to enjoy a book written for those grades. I always love reading from the middle school and young adult sections in the library. When I had the chance to review these 2 books, I was pretty excited! I will donate them to my local library, now that I am finished reading them.

The main character in this book, Laney, has been having what she calls, “future flashes” for as long as she can remember. When she touches someone, she gets a glimpse of a future event in their life. A new boy moves to her town and is in her class. When Laney touches Lyle, she gets the worst future flash she’s ever had! Now she has to figure out if there is a way to change the future and save Lyle’s life!

This story was exciting, engaging and heart warming! I love Laney and I really loved the storyline! I was taken in within the first few pages and I found myself staying up late just to see what was going to happen! I would recommend this to any middle school child. The author writes so well, you feel like you are part of the story!

This book will capture the attention of anyone who loves pirate tales! The story tells of Toby and his father, who sail the seas, salvaging junk from the water in order to stay afloat. They have to keep away from the watchful eyes of the authorities, especially because Toby’s dad is a wanted man! On another ship, A girl and her Captain mother are looking out to destroy the Phoenix…can you image what might happen if they joined forces?

This is an exciting, fast paced tale with enough excitement to keep kids reading past their bedtime! We liked to read books like this out loud to our kids, even as they became old enough to do their own reading. Reading together was always something we looked forward to. This would make a great gift for boys or girls who like excitement! I may not be a kid anymore, but reading this book made me feel like I was a kid again!
