    Asperger Syndrome in Adolescence: Living with the Ups, the Downs and Things in Between []  2020-7-27 19:49

    An insightful resource! I found this book to be very informative. The author's explanation of the syndrome was clear and very simple to understand. To read the preface by Luke Jackson, a student identified with Asperger's, was also very moving and validating. I am in the process of referring a high school student for Asperger's screening. This book was my number 1 resource in my own exposure to this disability and its put on the Autistic spectrum. The author covers such innovative subjects as; cognitive behavior therapy, exploring friendships,the ity of Asperger teens, the importance of occupational therapy, safety issues,diagnosis, parenting, interventions strategies, educational concerns and disclosure & self-advocacy. One would hope a kid with Asperger's would be diagnosed at the elementary level. However, with such a fresh awakening to the topic, I feel there are probably hundreds of misdiagnosed adolescents out there waiting for support and insight. Parents, I urge you to approach your child's teachers if you suspect Asperger-like characteristics in your own child. Then, I recommend you all read this book!

    Asperger Syndrome in Adolescence: Living with the Ups, the Downs and Things in Between []  2020-7-27 19:49

    One of my sons is seeing a therapist & she has stated that she feels he has some traits of AS. Well, after looking into it more, it would seem that both of my sons do. They are 15 & 20 and both of them enjoyed this book & seeing their own traits along with the traits of other family members being pointed out. The amazing thing is that it also gave them insight into why other people answer to them the method they do. I think this book will support them both in relating to other people. This has been a very handy book for them. Well written.

    Tips on Creating a Successful Naturopathic Practice: Based on the Ups and Downs of a ND in Private Practice []  2020-1-27 23:9

    This is an perfect resource for holistic practitioners, particularly licensed naturopathic physicians, either just starting out or looking to improve on current business practices. Dr. McElveen's clear, concise, honest tip is invaluable. She is honest about her successes, failures, and what she has learned in her first years in practice, and offers a lot of suggestions for improvement over her first practice blunders. I am entering my 5th year of naturopathic medicine personal practice, and this is the tutorial I want I had when I was starting out. I am excited to implement some of the fresh ideas I've gotten from this book, and look forward to maximizing my patient care and increasing income. A must-read for any licensed holistic practitioner!

    I'm a fresh ND, just wrapping up my first year in practice, and I'll tell ya…this was such a nice check-list to peruse, and I only want I'd had it my 4th year! It's always nice to hear it from a true ND perspective, and not some marketing guru that doesn't understand the true challenges of being a fresh grad trying to spread their wings. I have the amazing benefit of having the author as a colleague here in Maine…and believe me, the woman knows what she is talking about! Enjoy, all my fellow newbies…it gives you a nice start!

    Mom, I Hate My Life!: Becoming Your Daughter's Ally Through the Emotional Ups and Downs of Adolescence (A Hand-In-Hand Book) []  2020-9-24 18:49

    I'm a clinical mental health therapist who works with teens, and I have bought a lot of copies of this book on Amazon to loan and give away to patients' families. This is easily one of my all-time favorite books for parents of teen girls, right up there with the works of Mary Piper. I've found that this is one of the more sensible and helpful books I've used with families, and some of my teen patients ask to read it (so they can hold tabs on what I'm asking their moms to read, maybe?). Anyway, my teen patients agree that this book is dead-on in its descriptions of depression, body photo feelings, and conflicted mother-daughter relationships. The chapter on cutting and self-injury is particularly well-done.I deducted one star because of the book's title: "MOM, I hate my life." Dads are barely mentioned, and this book presents this material as if it is ONLY relevant to a mother's understanding of a daughter. Ever message how often books, articles, TV commercials, etc. simply assume that only MOTHERS are connected to their kids? As a male therapist and father of two, there is not one thing in this book that isn't equally applicable to an involved and struggling father. But a lot of amazing info is politely declined by the fathers I work with, simply because of the off-putting title. Unfortunately, Sharon Hersh's entire "line" of books use the "Mom..." titling gimmick, and the only prominent book for Dads and daughters (literally, "Dads and Daughters") is geared toward fathers of pre-teen nsider this a plea for better publications that offer clinically-valid hints for fathers AND mothers of teen girls.I found this book to be less "preachy" (in a religious sense) than some of the author's other books; while a spiritual foundation is apparent, it doesn't feel like a "Dr. Dobson" evangelical appeal to regressive traditions. On the contrary, Sharon Hersh has some very progressive and well-informed ideas, soundly based in clinical research and her own experience as a psychotherapist.Of all the books I loan to parents, this is the single one which is least often returned (because they like it), or the book that parents most frequently track down and buy for themselves.

    Mom, I Hate My Life!: Becoming Your Daughter's Ally Through the Emotional Ups and Downs of Adolescence (A Hand-In-Hand Book) []  2020-9-24 18:49

    Full disclosure: this book has come along at exactly the time I required it (I have two daughters, and the older one is on the cusp of adolescence), and I can't support being grateful. If this clouds my objectivity as a reviewer, I'll admit it; I'd rather be a poor book review writer than a poor , I HATE MY LIFE! by Sharon Hersh gives mothers of adolescent daughters the tools with which to shape their own particular parent-child relationship. While Hersh does not stray from the spiritual path, neither does she hammer it home to her readers. She realizes that most will already be Christians who recognize that we must render unto our kids their worldly due and that sometimes that worldliness will conflict with our own deeply held version you mind, says Hersh, because first of all, God is in control whether we remember to acknowledge that or not. Second, a mother's heart is powerful enough to include mistakes and heartaches along with triumphs and progress, even if we never saw those coming: "Of course, we couldn't imagine when our daughters were cute baby girls that one day they would stonily stare us in the face and announce, 'I hate my life,'" Hersh writes in her introduction, titled "A Haven in the Storm."She continues, "As mothers, we can become our daughters' greatest allies in the midst of the inevitable and sometimes scary emotional turmoil of growing up female. What I call hand-in-hand mothering begins with the conviction that as we stretch to meet our daughters' needs --- learning in the midst of not knowing, and giving even when we don't feel like we have anything to give --- we can experience private transformation and tutorial our daughters toward emotional maturity." To that end, Hersh has divided her book into three sections: Understanding Your Worlds, Building a Bridge Between Your Worlds, and Conquering Roadblocks to Relationships. Each section has four chapters, and each chapter has several "Just For You" boxes that include relationship strengthening exercises, suggestions for activities/reflections, and checklists.Hersh doesn't simply tell, tell, tell --- she provides anecdotes from both her professional practice and her private parenting so that readers can see true life and how her tip works in it. Her practical tip is highly valuable, too. For example, she counsels helping your daughter to create a "sacred space" in her room that she's really comfortable in. She recommends not prying, but if you do need to do a find of a girls' room for illegal substances, have her watch you as you do it rather than doing it on the sly.Hersh and her daughter Kristin collaborated on a attractive 1 Corinthians 13 For Mothers of Teenage Girls that closes her book, and she also provides an perfect list of resources for each zone she discusses in the book. Whether your daughter is 10 or 20, I recommend buying MOM, I HATE MY LIFE! and keeping it close at hand as you take her hand and continue your journey, together. --- Reviewed by Bethanne Kelly Patrick

    Mom, I Hate My Life!: Becoming Your Daughter's Ally Through the Emotional Ups and Downs of Adolescence (A Hand-In-Hand Book) []  2020-9-24 18:49

    I heard this author speak on a James Dobson radio present and immediately purchased the book.When I read the first chapter of this book, I wept. I had for so long thought my daughter was unusual and something was wrong with her because my other two daughters were so easy. It was unbelievable to read that she is normal and my other two are likely not! LOL. I now feel God gave me my third daughter so I won't harshly judge others for their "poor parenting." is book is such a blessing. I had read another about having a amazing child by Friday and if you like taking away chocolate chip cookies and vehicle keys and constantly grounding your child, then I guess that will work for you. But my issue with my daughter is NOT about taking away things, it is about learning to communicate with her so that we don't obtain in wars and I have to punish her in the first place! My daughter is not irresponsible. I don't need a book on how to teach my daughter responsibility. Rather, my daughter is hot-tempered and blows up for the littlest things. We call it going from 0-60. The old cartoon about Katie-boom describes her. She takes things very personally and is easily is book is wonderful. It tells me MY issues in dealing with her and teaches me how to deal with her. It reviews the different parenting styles so I can identify mine and gives the short comings of each and how to re-parent based on my is book has created such a difference in my life. I am huge on reading reviews before I purchase something and everytime I pick up this book to read it, I wish to come back here and give a review so that others can know it is not "too clinical" as someone else said. It has true examples, true solutions, and true relationship with my daughter has vastly improved, and not because of anything she's done, but because of what I've done. I no longer look at her as the monster, but realize I am the one with the major problem. Don't obtain me wrong, this book is not about pointing the finger at the mother. But in my situation, that's what I've taken away from it. For too long I haven't been parenting properly with her special temperament. (And this isn't a book about temperaments either.) Oh, I'm really botching up this review. But just be aware, it's unbelievable and it's everything you need. I imagine it works for boys too.I want this came with audio so I could listen to it constantly and drill these hints into my brain so I don't continually mess it up. I am a controlling parent (just one of the several mothering types) and this book has taught me to allow go and allow her be herself. My other two daughters are easy-going and place up with my controlling nature. This one is independent and fed up with it. She is 15.When she yells and says she hates me and hates her life, the words in this book encourage me that she is lashing out at the one thing in her life that she loves the most because it is safe. And later when she cuddles with me on the couch, I know it to be true, so I can obtain through the 0-60 when she says her life is miserable, I know NOT to point out all the unbelievable things she has and just shrug her off, but to stop and listen and do something about it!If you're having issues with your daughter, please read this book! There is hope! This book shows you!Be blessed!

    This book was a real eye opener to connecting with my daughter I quickly became aware that the method I was responding to her emotions was largely our problem. This book has helped me become a better mother and things are getting better I would recommend to all mothers even those with boys - I'm applying it to my three sons as well. Amazing read !

    I love Barnes's books simply for the fun, special take on things that only she seems to be able to offer. Add in plots that are both well designed, executed, and original and you are always in for a e Naturals series had me hooked from the very first book and seems to be getting better as it goes. A fun series about young teenage profilers that it is hard to resist.I love this rag mark group of people that not only over time have learned to be mates but a family too.Each with special abilities, traits, personalities, and things to offer, this series really had become a favorite of mine. It is hard to resist all the characters and how they interact with one another and how dang intelligent and attention detailed they really d in the fresh twists to the plot that were reveled all set in the quick paced life of Las Vegas Nevada and I 'm salivating to obtain my hands on the next book. I won't go into any more detail but I will say that if you are looking for something fun, mysterious and a lot like Criminal Minds for teens, this in the series for you.

    Trawling through my Kindle book shop I discovered that Bill Bernico seems to have written more books than he has readers, (or reviews at least). I think the reason is farely obvious. Dispite his titles being in the suspence/thriller section, they include small to none of the above. I, for one, will not be further exploring his work.

We learn a lot of Sloane's background and meet some of her family. I wish to know if all of Sloane's statistics are real (I verified 3)! We obtain to know Judd better. Cassie and Michael have a amazing talk. Cassie and Dean are amazing for each other. The plot centers around Fibonacci numbers and Sloane; the side plot is Cassie's mom.

    One of my favorite parts about The Naturals is that no matter how long it's been since the latest story, jumping back into a fresh book in the series is so easy. The characters are all so strong, to the point where I can't wait to learn more about all of them. No spoilers, but Sloane, who has always been sort of in the background as a squad member, was such a breath of new air to learn about this go. I love how Barnes has set up the story for another book and somehow managed to tie every story together into one huge arc that you don't really see until the very end. I already can't wait for #4 (where I hope we learn more about Lia given the setup) and to see how the bigger mysteries unfold.

    I enjoyed this series and overall this was a decent book. There are some concepts in the series that certainly require you to willingly suspend your disbelief but for the most part, I was easily able to do that with most of this series. In this final book, however, I felt the author stretch the boundaries of how far I could suspend my disbelief and things got a bit muddy with the all the numbers involved in the serial assassin story. I almost never obtain lost with story info but halfway through this book I was confused about who's supposed to slay whom during which year and with which weapon and it didn't obtain any clearer for me as the book continued.I'm glad they wrapped up the story of Cassie's mother but again, the direction the story went to accomplish this ended up being beautiful far-fetched even compared to the rest of the series. But I did have fun the books and do not regret reading them.

    It’s All In The Game. It was Lola's excellent song. But would it prove to be deadly for Kenny?

Sometimes it is a poor idea to go home with someone you don't know. Would Kenny obtain lucky? Or would this be the latest mistake he would ever make?Another amazing story to read when you only have a few mins to spend and don't wish to obtain too involved. These are amazing for those breaks in your day when you just need something short to hold you busy for a few mins - say during a coffee break. Nothings too serious, but fun small reads nonetheless.

    Six teenage FBI agents are on the hunt for a serial assassin haunting Las Vegas. The body count is rising with an inky MO.I have waited more than six months for this book to come out. I bought it this morning at 8:30, and with the interruption of church, lunch, 4H, and my sister pestering me, I finished reading it by six NOPSIS:I can't tell you much without ruining it! The Naturals squad go to Las Vegas to hunt down a serial assassin whose MO stays different, but the only thing linking his targets is tattoos. The Naturals are teenagers who work for the FBI and they have an awesome skill set that contains a human lie detector, an emotion reader, 2 profilers and a walking encyclopedia. They are supposed to work only on cold cases, but end up right in the middle of a hot investigation. The end will leave you wanting so much more! I can't wait until the fourth nce I read the first two books, it created a lot of sense to me, but if you haven't read them yet, you will still probably obtain most if not all of the storyline.WHAT I LIKED: the quick paced action, the mind blowing plot twists, and how cleverly everything ties in with the other authors. She tied in parts of this third book with some of the first book and I thought "How did I not see this coming?!"WHAT I DIDN'T LIKE: The book ends on a cliff hanger, and I have to wait yet again! The book was too short, I know that if it's over like 400 pages, it seems like it's gonna drag, but I don't care if it drags, I wanna read more!I found this book at a book fair where I bought the first 2 books. I read most of the first one on the method home, and it was so amazing! I was jumping on Amazon as soon as I could & found out I had to wait 6 more months for this 3rd book! I feel sorry for the people that had to wait is review written by a 13 year old with support from mom.

    Omg! This book continued the series with heartbreaking secrets and revelations about each of the characters. We see as they face difficult times and yet turn to each other instead of away. We hear more about the old cases and every lose end that you could have been wondering about. We meet some fresh characters and watch as Sloane, Michael, Lia, Dean, Judd, Briggs, and Sterling go through their own private he** and still manage to save someone. We see some more of each if their weaknesses and see Michael and Sloane break in their own ways. We see a more mature side to Lia and the true Sadie. We see Dean test to protect them and Judd also even while they face their own difficulties. I cannot wait for the next one. I have been hooked on this series from the very beginning and this hasn't stopped yet. The writing keeps me on the edge of my seat, making predictions, and wondering. I can feel what the characters feel and I love your writing style. I would read this series a million times if I could have the same mystery again, I want time travel was true so I could read it for the first time over and over again.

    I'm a huge fan of Barnes' books, and All In did not disappoint! Amazing characters and a compelling mystery kept me up late reading, but this book felt noticeably less realistic then the two previous books in this series.If you've read Barnes' previous books, you'll expect and appreciate the banter between The Naturals. Lia and Michael continue to be hilarious, and during the book, we learn more about Sloane's e underlying mystery in this book concerns a series of murders in Vegas. It's gripping and suspenseful, and throughout the book, Cassie learns more about what happened to her mother. At times, however, the plot felt a bit unrealistic (without giving away any plot points, certain people seem to have more access then they should, e.g.). Fully engaging in a YA book often requires suspending certain beliefs, but it seemed like there were a few locations in this book that were unrealistic, but were not central to the plot. Relative to Barnes' previous two books in the series, this was a bit of a l in: a solid book, and certainly worth reading if you're a fan of the series. If you haven't read the series before, then begin at the beginning!

    This third adventure of the Naturals sees them in Las Vegas trying to track down a serial killer. This venue is particularly stressful for Sloane because she is from Las Vegas. Her father, who hasn't acknowledged her, owns the casino where one of the murders took place. Cassie is also under particular stress in this one because a body has been found and it likely is the mother who disappeared leaving a blood drenched room when Cassie was twelve.I really like a the characters in this series. They are all damaged in some method by their pasts but the hurt has created their bonuses stronger. They are also all loners and very mature for their ages. It must be like herding cats for their guardian is episode is filled with tension and is emotionally hard on the children too. They need to search out who the assassin is quick since one of them might be intended to be the next victim. A secret is discovered and a link to Cassie's mom has been discovered.I can't wait for the next book in this series.

    Recovering My Life: How I decided bariatric surgery was right for me, the ups and downs through transformational weight loss, and why I would do it all over again []  2020-8-18 18:46

    Okay...I'm half-way thru and have been wanting to write this for a few days rst I can relate some as my weight has been up and down. A couple of years go I was 188…about 35 less than she was at her high weight.I wore a size 18...she says at about 225 ...35 more...she wore a size 16.Well ok but now she claims to be about 140 with more to lose and says she wears a 4 but its too big. Why would the doctor tell a size 4 woman to lose 20 lbs. more?Honey I lost 40 lbs. to 148 and I wear a 12. Hate to sound suspicious but it does not create sense. I was once at 110 in my youth and wore a 7. I just don't obtain how she is size 3-4 at 140…..and in the pics she looks nothing like a size 3-4 which is little Hollywood starlet interesting story tho it seems a small off. Sizec 4 with Bmi a 25? my Bmi is 24.5 and I'm 4-5 sizes higher? Naw...Unless maybe she is six feet tall...I apologize for my suspicions..but I'dlike to know where she gets her clothes so I can there!

    It's fascinating to read how things like her taste changed, and at the same time how honest and vulnerable she was in the hard parts of the process as well.

    I picked Carol’s book because I lost a stepbrother after his bariatric procedure went a poor way. His life ended with him thinking he had been better off overweight. Since I’ve never really battled weight issues, I have always wondered what created him choose what seemed to me such drastic measures. Thank you, Carol, for sharing your story and the amazing outcome that is possible.

    I love Carol's unfiltered approach to sharing her journey with readers. She does not keep back in letting us in on the mistakes and triumphs along the way...which is what I think people need to know. The Fb status updates that were included throughout created her more relatable and as if I was there in true time. I highly recommend this book, and I'm looking forward to her future works.

    I am incredibly grateful for this book. Recovering My Life has opened my eyes to a globe of pain I did not know existed. Carol has made a funny, but also a true and raw acc of what it is like the first 12 months after Bariatric surgery. The guilt and the shame associated with this procedure and how we can all practice kindness and compassion to people in our world. I am a better human for having read this book.

    Mina's Ups and Downs (Written in Traditional Chinese, English and Pinyin) (Chinese Edition) []  2020-8-31 18:55

    I love Katrina Liu's book. They have such a sweet storyline that all children can relate to. I love that the book has pinyin which enables my daughter to read and pronounce the characters. This book talks about emotions which is such an necessary topic. The attractive illustrations and dialogues support me in explaining the various emotions to my children. I appreciate that Katrina makes the books available in both Traditional and Simplified form. The characters and writings are simple to read. Such a unbelievable Chinese-learning book. My daughter loves it a lot and she can't wait to collect more Mina books.

    Cute and educational - the pages are very colourful which create it simple for children to learn; written in English, Mandarin Chinese characters, and pinyin (Pronunciation), it is excellent for children to assimilate the languages; I would definitely buy other books of this series!It would be even more excellent if the Chinese alphabet was also included in this book

    I love Barnes's books simply for the fun, special take on things that only she seems to be able to offer. Add in plots that are both well designed, executed, and original and you are always in for a e Naturals series had me hooked from the very first book and seems to be getting better as it goes. A fun series about young teenage profilers that it is hard to resist.I love this rag mark group of people that not only over time have learned to be mates but a family too.Each with special abilities, traits, personalities, and things to offer, this series really had become a favorite of mine. It is hard to resist all the characters and how they interact with one another and how dang intelligent and attention detailed they really d in the fresh twists to the plot that were reveled all set in the quick paced life of Las Vegas Nevada and I 'm salivating to obtain my hands on the next book. I won't go into any more detail but I will say that if you are looking for something fun, mysterious and a lot like Criminal Minds for teens, this in the series for you.

    Six teenage FBI agents are on the hunt for a serial assassin haunting Las Vegas. The body count is rising with an inky MO.I have waited more than six months for this book to come out. I bought it this morning at 8:30, and with the interruption of church, lunch, 4H, and my sister pestering me, I finished reading it by six NOPSIS:I can't tell you much without ruining it! The Naturals squad go to Las Vegas to hunt down a serial assassin whose MO stays different, but the only thing linking his targets is tattoos. The Naturals are teenagers who work for the FBI and they have an awesome skill set that contains a human lie detector, an emotion reader, 2 profilers and a walking encyclopedia. They are supposed to work only on cold cases, but end up right in the middle of a hot investigation. The end will leave you wanting so much more! I can't wait until the fourth nce I read the first two books, it created a lot of sense to me, but if you haven't read them yet, you will still probably obtain most if not all of the storyline.WHAT I LIKED: the quick paced action, the mind blowing plot twists, and how cleverly everything ties in with the other authors. She tied in parts of this third book with some of the first book and I thought "How did I not see this coming?!"WHAT I DIDN'T LIKE: The book ends on a cliff hanger, and I have to wait yet again! The book was too short, I know that if it's over like 400 pages, it seems like it's gonna drag, but I don't care if it drags, I wanna read more!I found this book at a book fair where I bought the first 2 books. I read most of the first one on the method home, and it was so amazing! I was jumping on Amazon as soon as I could & found out I had to wait 6 more months for this 3rd book! I feel sorry for the people that had to wait is review written by a 13 year old with support from mom.

    One of my favorite parts about The Naturals is that no matter how long it's been since the latest story, jumping back into a fresh book in the series is so easy. The characters are all so strong, to the point where I can't wait to learn more about all of them. No spoilers, but Sloane, who has always been sort of in the background as a squad member, was such a breath of new air to learn about this go. I love how Barnes has set up the story for another book and somehow managed to tie every story together into one huge arc that you don't really see until the very end. I already can't wait for #4 (where I hope we learn more about Lia given the setup) and to see how the bigger mysteries unfold.

    This third adventure of the Naturals sees them in Las Vegas trying to track down a serial killer. This venue is particularly stressful for Sloane because she is from Las Vegas. Her father, who hasn't acknowledged her, owns the casino where one of the murders took place. Cassie is also under particular stress in this one because a body has been found and it likely is the mother who disappeared leaving a blood drenched room when Cassie was twelve.I really like a the characters in this series. They are all damaged in some method by their pasts but the hurt has created their bonuses stronger. They are also all loners and very mature for their ages. It must be like herding cats for their guardian is episode is filled with tension and is emotionally hard on the children too. They need to search out who the assassin is quick since one of them might be intended to be the next victim. A secret is discovered and a link to Cassie's mom has been discovered.I can't wait for the next book in this series.

    Jennifer Lynn Barnes is the most reliable genre artist around. Her YA mashups are brisk entertainments, and clever plays on genre tropes, and most of all they are deeply involving. She puts her young protagonists at more sustained risk than any other mainstream YA writer, but does it with aplomb and narrative momentum that any writer would envy. This third book in The Naturals series is more of the same - although now there's a vision of a larger story arc - and I can't wait for the next book in the series. Don't wish to spoil it, but this one is in Vegas, and the odds are in no one's favor.

    Omg! This book continued the series with heartbreaking secrets and revelations about each of the characters. We see as they face difficult times and yet turn to each other instead of away. We hear more about the old cases and every lose end that you could have been wondering about. We meet some fresh characters and watch as Sloane, Michael, Lia, Dean, Judd, Briggs, and Sterling go through their own private he** and still manage to save someone. We see some more of each if their weaknesses and see Michael and Sloane break in their own ways. We see a more mature side to Lia and the true Sadie. We see Dean test to protect them and Judd also even while they face their own difficulties. I cannot wait for the next one. I have been hooked on this series from the very beginning and this hasn't stopped yet. The writing keeps me on the edge of my seat, making predictions, and wondering. I can feel what the characters feel and I love your writing style. I would read this series a million times if I could have the same mystery again, I want time travel was true so I could read it for the first time over and over again.

    I'm a huge fan of Barnes' books, and All In did not disappoint! Amazing characters and a compelling mystery kept me up late reading, but this book felt noticeably less realistic then the two previous books in this series.If you've read Barnes' previous books, you'll expect and appreciate the banter between The Naturals. Lia and Michael continue to be hilarious, and during the book, we learn more about Sloane's e underlying mystery in this book concerns a series of murders in Vegas. It's gripping and suspenseful, and throughout the book, Cassie learns more about what happened to her mother. At times, however, the plot felt a bit unrealistic (without giving away any plot points, certain people seem to have more access then they should, e.g.). Fully engaging in a YA book often requires suspending certain beliefs, but it seemed like there were a few locations in this book that were unrealistic, but were not central to the plot. Relative to Barnes' previous two books in the series, this was a bit of a l in: a solid book, and certainly worth reading if you're a fan of the series. If you haven't read the series before, then begin at the beginning!

    I enjoyed this series and overall this was a decent book. There are some concepts in the series that certainly require you to willingly suspend your disbelief but for the most part, I was easily able to do that with most of this series. In this final book, however, I felt the author stretch the boundaries of how far I could suspend my disbelief and things got a bit muddy with the all the numbers involved in the serial assassin story. I almost never obtain lost with story info but halfway through this book I was confused about who's supposed to slay whom during which year and with which weapon and it didn't obtain any clearer for me as the book continued.I'm glad they wrapped up the story of Cassie's mother but again, the direction the story went to accomplish this ended up being beautiful far-fetched even compared to the rest of the series. But I did have fun the books and do not regret reading them.

I won't go into any more detail but I will say that if you are looking for something fun, mysterious and a lot like Criminal Minds for teens, this in the series for you.

    All In (The Naturals, 3) []  2020-11-24 19:4

    I enjoyed this series and overall this was a decent book. There are some concepts in the series that certainly require you to willingly suspend your disbelief but for the most part, I was easily able to do that with most of this series. In this final book, however, I felt the author stretch the boundaries of how far I could suspend my disbelief and things got a bit muddy with the all the numbers involved in the serial assassin story. I almost never obtain lost with story info but halfway through this book I was confused about who's supposed to slay whom during which year and with which weapon and it didn't obtain any clearer for me as the book continued.I'm glad they wrapped up the story of Cassie's mother but again, the direction the story went to accomplish this ended up being beautiful far-fetched even compared to the rest of the series. But I did have fun the books and do not regret reading them.

    What can I say, Jennifer has done it again with this amazing series. From plot, to its setting and characters, and how detailed she is with every plot twisting moment. The Naturals are skilled and shine in their "natural" moments and now I need to read the next book in the series.

    Mina's Ups and Downs (Written in Traditional Chinese, English and Pinyin) (Chinese Edition) []  2020-8-31 18:55

    Very cute story about a young girl's first trip to a carnival. This book has English, Mandarin Chinese characters, and pinyin (Pronunciation). On each page, the author highlights an emotion or feeling, such as curious, excited or scared. This is very helpful when learning a fresh language. Being able to grasp the first few words and start to speak, can create a lot of difference for young learners. I addition, there are a lot of repetitive words like "I" (Wo), that can be learned quite quickly. Also, readers will recognize words like "ba ba" (Dad), "ma ma" (mom), and "pi sa" (pizza), Chinese words even us grownups can remember! These books are not simple to pull off, since all three forms of written words need to appear on each page, but this book does it very well. My only nitpick, I want the pinyin was highlighted as well, but in the book I think it's fairly obvious, so still, highly recommended.

    Love this series. I think it’s necessary to expose our children to a second language. It builds additional neurons and brain matter more than any other thing!

    This is a unbelievable bilingual book to teach children Putonghua using a very cute story about going to the carnival. I like how it focuses on the various feelings and emotions Mina has during the time at the carnival too. It is a amazing book to support children learn Chinese while enjoying a fun story!

    All In: (The Naturals #3) []  2020-1-18 19:48

    One of my favorite parts about The Naturals is that no matter how long it's been since the latest story, jumping back into a fresh book in the series is so easy. The characters are all so strong, to the point where I can't wait to learn more about all of them. No spoilers, but Sloane, who has always been sort of in the background as a squad member, was such a breath of new air to learn about this go. I love how Barnes has set up the story for another book and somehow managed to tie every story together into one huge arc that you don't really see until the very end. I already can't wait for #4 (where I hope we learn more about Lia given the setup) and to see how the bigger mysteries unfold.

    I'm a huge fan of Barnes' books, and All In did not disappoint! Amazing characters and a compelling mystery kept me up late reading, but this book felt noticeably less realistic then the two previous books in this series.If you've read Barnes' previous books, you'll expect and appreciate the banter between The Naturals. Lia and Michael continue to be hilarious, and during the book, we learn more about Sloane's e underlying mystery in this book concerns a series of murders in Vegas. It's gripping and suspenseful, and throughout the book, Cassie learns more about what happened to her mother. At times, however, the plot felt a bit unrealistic (without giving away any plot points, certain people seem to have more access then they should, e.g.). Fully engaging in a YA book often requires suspending certain beliefs, but it seemed like there were a few locations in this book that were unrealistic, but were not central to the plot. Relative to Barnes' previous two books in the series, this was a bit of a l in: a solid book, and certainly worth reading if you're a fan of the series. If you haven't read the series before, then begin at the beginning!

    Mina's Ups and Downs (Written in Traditional Chinese, English and Pinyin) (Chinese Edition) []  2020-8-31 18:55

    This bilingual picture book written in Chinese and English walks the reader through Mina’s first visit to a carnival. She is so excited. As Mina experiences the rides, the petting zoo, and the sights and smells of the carnival, she displays a range of feelingsMina feels satisfied when she flies up in the air but disappointed when she is too short for the roller coaster. She finds it difficult to choose from so a lot of foods She feels mad when the goats cause her to drop her ice cream and sad when she first loses a carnival game. Young readers obtain the notice that it’s okay to experience a range of emotions and that all works out for the best in the is book is an perfect choice for toddlers and preschoolers. My only criticism would be that the font for English is rather little and a bit difficult to read as the Chinese characters draw the eye to it.

    My 3.5 yr old has been a large fan of all the books in the Mina series. This fresh book is also a hit. With colourful pictures, fun concepts, and a thorough review of feelings to discuss, my daughter has read it 10 times already since we downloaded it an hour ago. We can’t wait to obtain our hard copy. The text is in traditional Chinese with pinyin and English. Love it!!

    Mina's Ups and Downs (Written in Traditional Chinese, English and Pinyin) (Chinese Edition) []  2020-8-31 18:55

    My toddler loves this fresh story about Mina going to the carnival. It is amazing for young kids because they can relate to the experience. This book is a amazing opportunity to talk about feelings and emotions with your small ones and wrap it up with an example from the story AND for them to learn chinese as well. It is the best of ALL worlds. I think it is also the author's goal to create learning fun at the same time. Very efficient and productive. I like!My 2 year old cannot read yet. However, she is able to recognize some Chinese characters that she has learned (which makes me so satisfied and proud). I do hope she will be able to read this book in the future, along with all the other Mina e illustrations are really cute. I love bilingual storybooks and want there were more of them. I love all the Mina books so I highly recommend it to other families, especially those who wish their kids to be bilingual. I think it's necessary for kids to have the resources (especially books) available to promote learning the language. This book is fun and a amazing takeaway overall!

    Can't Make This Stuff Up!: Finding the Upside to Life's Downs []  2020-1-24 21:5

    I was fortunate enough to keep an advanced copy of this book. Can't Create This Items Up! By Susannah B. Lewis, and this book is my favorite read so far this year! I loved her as a blogger, but goodness Susannah is funny, relatable, and quite possibly my fresh favorite a southerner myself, I especially loved reading about her testimony and her walk with Christ, even when it was difficult. She created me laugh, cry, and reminisce about my formable years.I recommend this book for anyone who needs a laugh, struggling with the demands of motherhood and being a wife, or anyone just looking for a fun read, because, Whoa Susannah!

    Allison Shadday has given us a clearly written and well-organized treatment on a topic that is not often covered for those of us with MS. The book has a amazing balance between the facts and the experiences of real-life ms-ers, including her e book handles the different symptoms of MS and how they affect emotions, and vice-versa. The chapters on depression, intimacy and caregivers are excellent.I recommend this book to all patients and their circles.

    Domestique: The Real-life Ups and Downs of a Tour Pro []  2020-11-17 18:55

    A truly interesting insight into the professional peloton. The role of the domestique is accurately described by the author as one of self-sacrifice for the betterment of the team. With that said, it felt as though Charly used this book as method to describe his dislike with his chosen career by bemoaning every aspect of his racing life. There were moments in the book when he did describe some positive experience that was covered in one brief explanation no longer than a page. Inevitably, he would then move onto something he didn't like and spend more than half the chapter complaining. I found his complete disregard for his natural talent and fortune to be disappointing.If you would like to learn more about the life of a domestique, read this book. If you love cycling for the pure adventure and love of it, then read another book.
