Review Wednesday – The Perfect Blindside
Today, I am reviewing The Perfect Blindside by Leslea Wahl. Before I start the review, I want to share a couple of links with you:
I really enjoy reviewing books for teens because my son is about to turn twelve and I want to make sure I have “the right kind of books” here for him to read. Sure, we love all the classics, but as our Priest said on Sunday (paraphrased), ‘As parents teaching your children about our Faith and morality, starts with you, at home. The love of God in your children’s hearts; the teaching of virtue and commandments ALL start with you.’ My immediate thought was – “NO PRESSURE!”
- Jake. Olympic Snowboarder with a silver medal. Egotistical. Teen sensation. Struggling with all the normal teen stuff AND how to manage fame. His parents moved him to a little town in Colorado in an effort to shield him from fame. And he’s torn between being cool in everyone’s eyes AND wanting to fit in like everyone else.
- Sophie. Honors student. Budding Photographer/Reporter. Small town sweetheart. Judgmental and a little bit OCD. She and her best friend Kate are like so many teen girls. It made me smile when they planned their first day of school outfits (we all used to… awww).
