This a very different kind of book.  Think part tech manual, part science fiction, part alternative universe, and part I’m not sure what.  I can see someone who is a sci-fi or tech nerd totally enjoying this book.  It is well written and has a lot of good parts.  Unfortunately for me, it is not … Continue reading H2LiftShips Volumes 1 & 2: a tech manual for a future – Imagine a world, exactly like ours, but different by Bob Freeman

Shadows of Doubt (A Kahale and Claude Mystery Series Book 2) By Timothy R. Baldwin

As was established in the first book in this series, these teens have a lot going on.  Mixing a mystery with teenage angst can be daunting but Baldwin does it with enough finesse to keep adults interested as well.
