Together We Go Places is simply beautiful; a story of a happy family and the places they go

together. Sometimes families get to go to exciting places, such as a restaurant or vacation,

while other times it’s to the store or doctor’s office. Together We Go Places is the perfect

book to show the fun and beauty that is found even in the small things that families do

together. Truthfully, I adored this book!

Author Jennifer Schroer has clearly poured her own love and passion for her children into

her writing. A simple, yet beautiful book, Together We Go Places is a must-read for young

children! There is added value in fostering discussion on the routines and errands your own

family has after reading this book. Children and adults will love this book together!

The illustrations, done by Tosin Akinwande, are vibrant and appealing to children but do not

detract from the text.

Overall, Together We Go Places belongs on your child’s shelf, in your classroom, or

anywhere else that small children are found!

Despite the Devil by Shawna James is a thought-provoking and emotional story. Stephanie and Andrew seem like a perfect, fairytale couple, but Andrew comes with some history that Stephanie will have to deal with. Will they be able to overcome everything and take a step toward the life they want together, despite Andrew’s past, despite the difficulties that Stephanie must face to maintain a relation, despite the drama, despite the frustration and pain... despite the devil?


Despite the Devil by Shawna James is the best romance story of the year! Despite the Devil is truly a one-of-a-kind story. Author Shawna James has a grasp on reality and puts her words into an artfully-crafted tale that will leave a lasting impression. Love is not always the cliche fairytale it’s made out to be, and Stephanie finds this out the hard way. I appreciate authors, like Shawna James, who create a realistic and emotional tale that does not fall into the redundant pit of similar stories. If you want a realistic, emotional, and intriguing novel; read Despite the Devil by Shawna James. A truly hidden gem that you won’t regret buying!

"Never Going Home" is the story of Din Swift, a relatively average man with an average life.Average, however, is not all it's cracked up to be, so Din begins to take steps to create achange in his life. Perhaps a bit prematurely, Din quits his job and begins to search forhappiness. Job interviews and dating are both challenging and frustrating for Din, whichmakes him take a look at himself, and society as a whole. Where does he begin in the questfor change? 


I have not read a book quite so real as "Never Going Home" in a very long time. I alwaysenjoy a book that the author is clearly passionate about or invested in, which is clearly thecase here. Author Jeff Marlowe has delivered a relatable work of fiction that simultaneouslycalls attention to flaws in the way our beloved society operates, particularly in regard toemployment and the "American Dream" we are expected to chase after. I must say I wasimpressed with this book; if you want to read and be entertained while fostering deeperthought, then Marlowe's book is for you! I recommend everyone give this book a read atsome point, a real modern-day classic!
