Book Reviews, Updates, and Happiness

Hi Hi!! Lots has happened this summer! ;) School finished well and I am now free to breath! Also our house in Idaho SOLD!!!!! Thank the Lord for that. We started looking for a house here but we really couldn't find anything. My parents wanted a house that literally backed up to the school and that was pretty much impossible because it's a very popular area. But one day my mom was driving in that neighborhood for the millionth time and there was a beautiful house with a for sale sign in front of it. We made an offer that night and it was ours the next day. The Lord works in mysterious ways. To see more pictures go HERE.
So, since all that happened we are going back to Idaho (YES!) tomorrow for three weeks to visit extremely missed friends and pack up our house. I'm sure we all will have a blast there and then when I get back I get to go to a two week drama camp!!
Hope all is well with everyone....enjoy my books reviews below..

Bringing the Boy Home by N.A. Nelson

Tirio knows that his adopted life in the United States is better, granted that he was cast out of his families’ Takunami tribe at an early age because of a disabled foot. But, that doesn’t stop him from wondering what his life would be like if his father had accepted him and loved him as he was and not shunned him for what he wasn’t.
Luka’s goal in life is to conquer his soche seche tente, a sixth sense test that he does with his never met father. If he succeeds his family will be honored, weddings will happen, and families will be reunited, but if he fails, his tribe will never respect their family again.
These two boys who live in completely different worlds intertwine in and out of each other’s lives in a very exciting and surprising adventure.

Troll Blood by Katherine Langrish

Peer and Hilde find themselves on a ship heading for Vinland. They both want some adventure but when they find out the captain’s real intentions for the trip, they wonder if they will ever get home. In Katherine Langrish’s final novel of her Troll Trilogy all her characters,Viking and Native American history, and legends come alive. Reading the first two books of this trilogy is highly recommended.
