Required Reading

Life is complicated enough without getting into hotwater with federal agencies so: TAKE NOTE Many things I review I received at no charge in exchange for an honest review. Consider this as informing you that ALL things I review may have been gotten at no charge. Realistically about 40% but in order to keep things above board just assume that I got the stuff free. I do not collect information on my readers. If cookies or other tracking stuff is used on my blogs it is due to BLOGGER not ME. Apparently the European Union's new rules state I need to inform you if cookies are being use. If they are it isn't byu me, consider yourself INFORMED.
Words like, “sponsored,” “promotion,” “paid ad” or even just “ad” are clear ways to disclose that you’re being paid to share information and links so BE AWARE that some of what I write can be described as an AD by the government. BTW I will NEVER say a product is great, super or even acceptable if it isn't, whether I got it free or NOT!

The Lake House by Sarah Beth Durst

Once again, Durst has blown off my socks.  I’m an admitted fan and as an author myself, I’m humbled at how well she writes.  This story captures the insecurities of not just teens but all of us who practice self-deception or deflection or whatever tool necessary to protect the ego.   Three different personalities are stranded in a dismal, unregulated forest environment and faced with circumstances far beyond their control.  Forced to confront their insecurities to survive, the three girls find depths in their souls that they have never plumbed before.

As a certified counselor of kids in a former life, I would have tried to have this book read by many of my students. It’s that good.  

Durst captures your attention, fastens tentacles of interest around your cerebrum, and encourages introspection all the while entertaining you with a fascinating story. 

This book targets young adults, I’m certainly not young, and my status as an adult has been called into question on multiple occasions.   I loved the book, the story, and the messages.  I highly recommend it. 

This book may have been received free of charge from a publisher or a publicist. That will NEVER have a bearing on my recommendations. As an Amazon Associate I earn from qualifying purchases if you click on a purchasing link below.#CommissionsEarned
