Film Executive. He is taken to the hospital and has like zero concept of how humans work. Then he is sent to a foster home where one parent is a doctor, the other a pastor and they already have a son.
Much more in keeping with my own tastes. When found by Law Enforcement he was assumed to be an orphan with a severe mental defect and deposited at a foster home. Fantasy fiction. Mwah, hah, ha! Dirk needed something like this.
Along the way important lessons are learned. And then all the weird evil laughing. I think a lot of kids would get a kick out of Dirk. She works for a non-profit. April always has a book on hand. In her free time she can be found binge watching The Office with her husband and toddler, spending way too much time on Pinterest or exploring her neighborhood. I can see how this may not work for some people. But yes, some MG books that I find silly are loved by my relatives. I have to remember that there are many years and experience between us.
Yes, exactly! Good point about the years and experience, I agree. It does sound very young. I looks somewhat cute — the cover at least — but the dark lord does sound a little annoying.
This review makes me glad that I decided not to pick up a galley of this one. I still read a number of them, and try to put on my librarian hat and determine if I would recommend it to kids rather than to adults.
Great honest review. The premise sounds great, but I think I would end up having a similar reaction as you. Notify me of follow-up comments by email. Notify me of new posts by email. This site uses Akismet to reduce spam. Learn how your comment data is processed.
