Title:  Iris Brave
Author: Ali B.

From Amazon...

Iris Brave isn’t as courageous as her name suggests. That’s about to change. Iris doesn’t take risks. Heights make her dizzy and she prefers to swim in the shallow end… with nose plugs. On a summer visit to her grandpa’s farm, a mysterious stranger shadows Iris, leaving her cryptic messages. When this outsider turns out be a phantom from her family’s past, Iris sheds her timid ways to uncover the truth and protect the family she loves. Along the way Iris discovers family secrets and enigmatic figures that lead her to question everything she’s ever thought was real.

This book is the first in a series called the "Soul Jumpers" by Ali B. it will be available on Amazon from Wed September 24th on... for the wonderful price of $.99 for Kindle edition.  I will be reviewing her second book soon entitled:  "The Sixteen" ...."What if you find yourself on the verge of death and your soul is to ready to die?"  Sounds fascinating. This series is classified, Middle Grade Fiction.  Get a jump on my review by picking up the first book and be prepared for number two when I post.

About the author:

Ali B. is a teacher, wife, mother and writer. “I can't remember a time when I wasn't reading. I love books! My mother was an incredible librarian and she always had a stack of books by her chair. Now I have my own stack!” She currently lives in San Diego with her husband, two children and three dachshunds. On writing this series, she says, “I love creating characters. I love giving them lives, adventures, challenges and quirks. For me, writing is about developing characters that are worth knowing, throwing obstacles in their path, and then sitting back and watching them grow.”

       It's Saturday....go the night away!!  See you back here on Monday.  Enjoy!

Read on and read always!
