***Review From Nerd Girl Amber***

**Given a copy book from the author in exchange for an honest review**

This is a captivating story about self discovery, love and struggles. The author writes the book from Liberty’s POV. She does an amazing job portraying the depth of emotion in this character. Portraying the struggles, emotion and still being able to carry an interesting storyline that captivates the reader.  I was immediately sucked into a world where tragedy and love took on a whole new meaning. The author does an awesome job of creating a world and characters you can relate to. I found myself crying, cheering and screaming. My heart melted at each turn of events and I sympathized with the characters.

Liberty a sweet, emotional pushover who is struck by tragedy, decides to run away from her problems. What she didn’t realize is that she would be running straight into a love triangle. Two guys vying for her attention. Brett and Shayne each want the affections of the lovely Liberty. One being a good choice and one being the wrong choice.

The Eyes of the Chameleon by Graham A. Dixon (Review By Tina)

**Review By Tina From The Nerd Girl Page**

*This book was given to me by the author in exchange for an honest review.*

This book takes place at Berkeley University in San Francisco, California with a trip to China and back again.  The overall idea for this book was a good one, that keep you guessing as to who did it.   I could not wait to start reading this book, but almost from the beginning I was left with confusion.  The main characters needed more back ground information to give them depth and for the readers, a feel as to whom they are and then they can start to relate or understand their decisions.

From chapter to chapter the story jumped around too much that I found myself re-reading some of the chapters, because I thought I must have missed something and I didn’t.  I felt that the Author tried to put too many details or elements into this story but without giving you the information needed to keep up.  I feel that the story would have been better had some chapters been removed entirely leaving room for more embellishment in some of the… Continue reading

Review:

B+ (4-4.5 stars)

I love dystopian books, I should probably stop reading them because I’m so wrapped up in all these possible, horrible futures, I’m not sure which one to prep for first! I’m overloaded in silly facts that add up to a terrible, wasteland future, but I can’t stop reading them, because I just… Continue reading

***Review From Nerd Girl Amber***

**Given a copy book from the author in exchange for an honest review**

This book is the second in a series. Although I have not read the first book, which believe me NOW I am going too! This book can be read as a standalone. This book has it all! Mystery, love, intrigue, sadness drama, heroism and much more. It is a captivating storyline. The author writes as if she has lived the story. This tells me that not only is she an intelligent writer, but that she also researches very well before writing about specific topics.

I do not want to give any spoilers away so I will be brief. This story takes adventure seriously. It captures your attention and sucks you in. I love that about this story. Cross injured in an accident and left sort of disabled and in pain decides to be a hero in this book. He embarks on an incredible journey filled with drug cartels, drama, danger and undeniable connections. Cross learns new things and travels to Mexico for a search and rescue. There he tangles with a drug lord and makes and unusual, but undeniable connection to a… Continue reading

This book is a lovely story of a duck called Juniper , she could do just about anything she wanted, but knew she couldn’t do everything.

The illustration is really quirky and something I haven’t seen before , I really liked the way the book is wrote about a duck princess who isn’t particularly glamorous but still a princess .

I don’t want to ruin the story but it’s a life lesson we all could take note from .

My daughter aged 6 absolutely loved this story.
