This story is incredibly sweet and heartfelt. And the dialogue is an author/pop culture fanatic's DREAM. Loved every moment right until the last page.
The Final Lesson by Shakyra Dunn
"I thought this was a good book with potential. It's an indie book and like a lot of indie books it probably needed another round of edits before being published. There are times when the wrong word is used or even a word that isn't actually a word..." Read more of this review »

I truly related to this novel, being an artist myself (particularly a writer like Wallace), and every inch of this story had layers that tore down every fiber of what it means to step up and create something magical.

:D A fun and mystical read from a debut author. I had the pleasure of picking up this novel for a sensitivity read (as I'm a native Chicagoan), and I really enjoy the concept behind it.

Shifters, birds of a feather, taking flight, all to survive.

Heather Derr-Smith

John Lennon
“Words are flowing out like endless rain into a paper cup,
They slither wildly as they slip away across the universe
Pools of sorrow, waves of joy are drifting through my open mind,
Possessing and caressing me.
Images of broken light which dance before me like a million eyes,
They call me on and on across the universe,
Thoughts meander like a restless wind inside a letter box
They tumble blindly as they make their way
Across the universe
Sounds of laughter shades of love are
Ringing through my open ears inciting and inviting me
Limitless undying love which shines around me like a
Million suns, and calls me on and on
Across the universe”
John Lennon
