A Black Woman's Civil War Memoirs: Reminiscences of My Life in Camp With the 33rd U.S. Colored Troops, Late 1st South Carolina Volunteers dI thoroughly enjoyed this book and I m worried it s not going to get the recognition iteserves The cover and title are very much fitting with the story but I m not sure its going to sell it The science fiction genre always comes in last place in student interest surveys and this book looks 100% science fiction Kids today run from the word martian like the plague Unless the librarian talks up this book kids will never know that it s based on a true event that occurred near Roswell New Mexico In 1947 an official from the Army Air Force Base announced that they had recovered a flying saucer The story appeared on the cover of every major newspaper Several ays later the story was retracted and to this ay has caused speculation about what the military really foundMany people including ones who were kids at the time ones who were kids at the time to have seen the flying saucer up close Savage s story is a fictional account of what might have happened The best way to escribe it is It meets E T It because there is a comical group of 5 kids who journey out to the crash site to investigate and E T because an alien ends up following one of the boys and he becomes responsible for protecting it and helping it get homeAll that makes for a cool story but what s most incredible about this book is how well Savage escribes the cool story but what s most incredible about this book is how well Savage Approaches To Academic Reading And Writing describes the of kids in 1947 Superhero comics and westerns were priority 1 A Coke and Cracker Jacks were consumed as often as spare change allowed Spit was important especially for hair fixes and the spit handshake Surprises in cereal boxesid what they said they would Living with Lynching: African American Lynching Plays, Performance, and Citizenship, 1890-1930 do ieetect radiation Every kid s job was to invent crazy theories about everything Becoming a baseball player was every kid s Witch-Hunt Narrative dream Dogs got cool names like Clark Kent Going to church on Sunday was as sure as going to school The characterevelopment is off the charts and here s a few uotes to prove itAbout God If he s not going to listen to me then I m one listening to Him That s If he s not going to listen to me then I m one listening to Him That s we Alcohol Addiction Recovery don t talk any Not even in church on Sundays But I fake it for Momma s sake If she knew I wasn t speaking to God I be saying Hail Mary until she was good and sure my.

The GreysBor to how Dibs situation is finally resolved Weaknesses The reason for Obie s eath and Mylo s grief about it as well as the grief of a neighbor for the loss of his family take up a lot of the story and slows it own In 1947 almost everyone would have lost neighbors relatives and community members in the war and might have been a bit resilient There probably wasn t A Lot Of Grief Counseling Available But Mylo Certainly Needed lot of grief counseling available but Mylo certainly needed What I really think This reminded me a little of Mark Teague s The Doom Machine 2009 which I can T Get To Circulate get to circulate though it s shiny I may wait to purchase this one even though the 1947 Roswell setting is fabulous The truth about this book is that I wanted to enjoy this book than I id It took me about halfway through the book to actually start enjoying it before that I would read a page and fall asleepI loved the author s previous book Lemons and this book has some of that same spirit the story takes a long time to gain momentum which is why it Peace DeLeos Action Thriller Singles doesn t get the same rating as Lemons Melissa Savage writes stories about otherworldy creatures bigfoots martians and human loss In my opinion this book isn t as good as her first novel LEMONS but it is full of well crafted characters andescriptions She throws in a twist every time the story begins to meander And I enjoyed all of the references to things from ays gone by like Superman on the radio black and white Flash Gordon serials and Kellogg s cereal with pep I had problems with this book I wanted to believeAnd I was supposed to believe that there was extraterrestrial lifeBut my gosh it was like pulling teeth On one hand we Had Mylo Mourning His Brother Mylo mourning his brother eath Then we had his friends hanging around with him uoting comic books and the token smart girlOnce we finally established that there was indeed a spaceship and an alien we had had to go back and forth and argue and The Humanities, Higher Education, and Academic Freedom discussI thought perhaps martians might parallel his love for hisead older brother and the story hinted at that then turned and left us in the Shakespeare desertToo much talking too little actionThanks to Netgalley for making this book available for an honest review.
