With great wit, insight and passion, Naomi Kinsman ushers Sadie and her readers through another crazy couple of months in her young life This book ended up being my favorite in the entire series so far I really enjoyed the changes that happened in Sadie s world at this point and how she handled them I also loved the way that the story played out The various mysteries in this one were interesting and it was fun to watch Sadie wade through them.Though this book was fun and had a lot of lighthearted moments, it would be hard to ignore Sadie s struggles With a mom who isn t really healthy and some serious situations that could be life threatening, these books pack a powerful punch Unlike the teenage angst that is so popular in many other YA books, the drama and chaos here is realistic and down to earth I think that a lot of teenagers will be a
I would like to give the book another half star if Goodreads would only let me It was good.I felt the author did an adequate job of making this sequel a stand alone novel, but a few tie ins and explanations would have been great I enjoyed the religious aspects The author was not heavy handed, nor did she promote a particular denomination, so it s a good read for most kids.The bear research grabbed me from the start because I work at a zoo, and our area has a bear rescue program that does phenomenal work The one part that bugged me was that the researchers in the novel were overly friendly with the bears, in that they fed and touched them The kid who played a villain for most of the book was actually right They are wild animals, and they should be treated as such.I would like to have seen a few loose ends tied up There were some bits that played heavily in
Naomi Kinsman has written a cute and hearfelt Christian novel that takes you on the journey of a young girl and her friends in a quest to save bears that they have become attached to This book has everything a young girl could want from friendships being tested, friendships being made, the need to save what you love, and the idea that doing the right thing isn t always the easy thing to do There is only one thing that I think could ve been done better and that is introducing the characters and situations from the previous
Sadie s story continues with another good addition to the series Her first Thanksgiving and Christmas season in Michigan brings surprises growing relationships, a former enemy Frankie who suddenly is friendly, a homeless family squatting in a cabin near the hibernating bears, and even a mysterious Christmas present from a secret Santa The ending of the story brings the various plot threads together when Sadie realizes the dangers to the bears she loves As in the first
I really enjoyed this book I won it for my girls ages 12 and 8 I read it first, and felt very comfortable having both of them read it There were a few grammar errors, but overall a very enjoyable book It is nice to have books that young girls can read, and as a parent not have to worry about it. I received this book for free through Goodreads First Reads I found this to be a wonderful book for young Christian girls It teaches about friendships, faith, and growth I can t wait for my daughter to read it I believe it will teach h
