Knock Book Review and Giveaway!

Knock, by Christa Bradley Dubois, is the first in an exciting new Young Adult Christian Fiction series.

I am thrilled to share this new book with my readers, not only because it was a great read and we need more Young Adult Christian Fiction books available, but also because Christa is a local friend and homeschool mama of four children!!  It's been her lifelong dream to write a book and she as finally been able to accomplish it! 

Book Synopsis: Meet Adam: an average middle school student wading through typical teenage emotions and feelings… until Adam meets Jesse. Who is this strange kid that happens to be around right before things go terribly wrong, almost as if he’s causing bad stuff to happen? Find out through the twists and turns of alternate endings as you decide how things will turn out in Adam’s life. 

Adam’s family has a past, his future is uncertain, and the present is getting really odd ever since Jesse entered the scene. How will Adam get through the maze of friendly jealousy, bad grades, a really mean teacher, and unanswered questions about the new kid in town? Only you can make that call in this first book of an awesome series about coming of age challenges that have the most surprising results.

I read this book aloud to Funny Bunny, who loves choose your own ending adventures.  We read through it several times, until we selected all the endings at least once.

Thoughts of a 10-Year Old:  Knock, by Christa Bradley Dubois, is a good book about a boy named Adam who leads a normal life until a kid named Jesse shows up.  Jesse wants to help Adam out, but does Adam even want his help?  You decide!  I like Knock because it is a book about spiritual choices and it teaches a lesson with every choice. 

A couple things she mentioned to me were that she would have liked the chapters to be a little shorter and she wanted more ending choices.  Of course, that's just her personal preference.  :)
