Read in January, 2010

Now and then I feel the need to be swept away by magical stories, and that's when I put down adult literature and pick up a book that will allow me to become a child again. The Fire Stone was clever, well written, and a thoroughly entertaining read. Adventure and unexpected twists kept me turning the pages. I loved how the author threaded the learning of important values and friendship into a story that was action-packed and witty. And Matt, the main character, was enormously likable. There's something here for everyone, and Ms. Carney did an exceptional job of crafting a story that was as charming as it was entertaining.

Linda Mays This sounds interesting so I clicked on the Amazon link to it. I was disappointed that Amazon didn't have the 'read an excerpt' feature for it.I love high fantasy books though so I'll probably give it a try. I re-read childhood and young adult books all the time so I'm totally with you on the need to escape into magical books. Although not considered a young adult book, I really enjoyed the J.V. Jones 'Baker's Boy' Trilogy. You might like it as well :-)
