Christian Fiction

Invasion of the Ninja (by Jeffrey Allen Davis)

Rating 5

Reviewed by Kaitlyn, McClay Road TAB

I really loved how the Ninja attacked the school in the middle of a dance and the main characters a group of preteens called adventure swoop in and save them, yet they get stuck in the school because the Ninja bombed the bridge. I think Jamie Ralph is a good example of saying; 'Just because you can do something doesn't mean you have to do it. Keep up the good work, Dad!

Rating 5

Reviewed by Danielle, grade 11

The Door Within, the first in a trilogy, is about a teenage boy who is called to an alternate realm to help fight against the evil that threatens to take over.  It is very easy to get drawn inot the story, which is full of hope (and humor) despite the darkness.   I highly recommend this book, especially if you like stories like The Chronicles of Narnia, The Lord of the Rings, and The Hobbit.

Still Waters (by Shirlee McCoy)

Rating 5

Reviewed by Dremia, grade 7

Shirlee is an amazing author!  Tiffany, the main character, had a great personality.  I loved how she reached out to others.  Throughout the book I felt sorry for Tiffany and happy for her.  Jake, the sheriff, was the kind of guy where you never know what he's about to do.  The mix of romance and suspense was absolutely amazing!  I am definatley impressed with Shirlee McCoy's first novel.
