I just finished reading this book and sat down to review immediately because I couldn't wait to share my thoughts with all of you!Defending Rebecca is a true story with little fiction thrown in and, might I add, it is absolutely interesting, funny and thoroughly enjoyable.

Shadows of the Northlandsis a historical fantasy by Vishwesh Desai. The author is a 14 year old, yes you read that right! I cannot begin to tell you how surprised I was when I read the book and connected the effort to that of a 14 year old. It is just truly exceptional! More on my thoughts later. First, let's get to the summary.

Book Excerpt : Sin and Cider

Sin and Cider, Copyright © 2017 by K. Reese
Shaking the lust from my mind, I decide to turn my focus to the inside of the barn now that I’ve finished the thankless task of clearing out weeds. I had pulled out some of the rubbish inside already but still have a lot of work to do. I pull one of the doors to the side, the gentle creaking sound washing over me in a wave of nostalgia. I make my way inside and step over dried leaves and debris, each step kicking up a layer of dust. I look ahead and broken slats of wood are on the ground; those must be part of the original roof that was destroyed. I survey the space and take in the old tanks where we used to make cider and the empty jugs, some whole and some broken, lining the walls on shelves covered in cobwebs. When I was a kid this barn was spotless and welcoming, the perfect place to make cider and welcome visitors. Now it looks like an old photograph and not the treasured memory it really is. I take a deep breath and the smells o…
