Book Review: Hating Heidi Foster by Jeffrey Blount

Hating Heidi Foster by Jeffrey Blountimages (15)

Reviewed by Jackie Paulson © 2012

I was given a free copy of this emotional roller coaster young adult novel which is about the suffering, loss of a loved one, and grief.  When the main character, Mae McBride decides that her best friend is not her best friend any longer, the story shows us how they reunite in such a magical way.

What causes Mae and Heidi to have a departing conflict is the fact that when the house is caught on fire, Mae’s father saves Heidi’s life and dies a hero.

First off I can relate to having a loved one die, which many can who would read this book.  The book shows the stages of grief among the character that are a reality and can be something I relate to as well as you.

NOTE: (My real mother died when I was five and she was 33), so I can really relate to all of the characters emotions in the stages of grief and loss.

Secondly, the story is short and easy to read in one sitting (105 pages total).

Thirdly, I could feel the emotions and the compassion in each character as true to life as well.

Fourthly, I think it would be easy to place blame on the “dead father” for saving Heidi.  It is such a reality to envision this story as real.  I also can see the two best friends take the stance they did in the story and then later realize the regret and silliness to only make up and become life time friends forever, learning from the experience.

This would be a great book for any age group but it is aimed towards young adults.  If you decide to read this book please comment below of what you thought of it, thank you, © 2012 Jackie Paulson

Handwriting for Hero’s by Kathleen E. Yancosek
Written by Jackie Paulson©2012
I would like to thank review the book dot com for a free copy for my review.
The workbook is a six week program to teach you how to write left handed. I am right handed and enjoyed each of the exercises. I felt like I was in kindergarten when doing the pages because when I write with my right hand it is so easy but when I write with my left hand it was such a challenge. I loved the challenge and took it on and have to admit that I did it faster than I had expected. I also think that it used my brain in a form that I was not aware I had. If someone has an injury to their hand they can use this book to learn how to write again and this is the first book of the kind published. What a great idea!
I think all doctors’ offices, chiropractors, and anyone who helps others with healing from injuries would benefit from this book. Doctors could order in bulk and give them away. I am very impressed with Kathleen E. Yancosek and her idea to publish this one of a kind book on handwriting.
