I love it when my kids and I read the same book. It’s a great opportunity for discussion. Grab a cup of tea, a comfy chair, and your book, and your child will feel like a grown-up, and you will get to hear what’s going on inside their beautiful mind. My daughter and I recently read Lost & Found from the Rock Harbor Search and Rescue series by Colleen Coble. She writes books in the adult genre, but this series is specifically labeled Juvenile Fiction. Emma Grace read the book first, and I knew she loved it, because she could not stop talking about it. The plot pulled her in and was interesting enough to keep her captivated. She was on the edge of her seat to tell me the ending but patiently waited until I read the book myself.
Obviously, I loved that the book interested her so much, but I also really enjoyed this mystery novel. My favorite book genre are crime stories. Even though this is one is geared toward young adults, it drew me in as well. Fourteen-year-old friends, Emily and Olivia, love solving mysteries. Emily is training her search and rescue puppy, Sherlock, to be her crime solving sidekick. There’s two significant mysteries to solve in this book, the story behind Olivia’s adoption and the disappearance of Naomi, Emily’s stepmother. The author weaves them together beautifully and keeps you interested while not dragging the story out. There’s also great lessons that any age can learn from. The girls learn what it means to trust God even though you don’t understand why and that He always sees and wants their best. I highly recommend this book to all ages! And guess what? I have one to give away!
