What I Didn't Like So Much: I hadn't read the first two books in the faithGirlz!/From Sadie's Sketchbook Series ( {1} Shades of Truth and {2} Flickering Hope ) so I did end up feeling a little bit lost at times in the midst of the already well established story and characters. Other than that I have no more complaints whatsoever.

My daughter and I have been switching off reading this right before bed time. She reads fairly slow still so I often read a couple of chapters for her. There are some really grown up topics which are great because it gives me a chance to explain to her why the characters are feeling the way they are about the situations. I think it's been written well for the target age group. My daughter seems very interested in it and always wants me to read more. We haven't finished it yet, but maybe in a week.

My Sunday school girls got to read the book and then meet the author. It's a very good book for today's preteen's. Whose going to be the author of your book of life. You, or the world? Big questions for preteens to think about. Some many things pulling on them. They'll need help in standing against the tide. All young girls should read this book.

Naomi Kinsman's "Shades" addresses the deeper questions often skirted in YA literature: How to navigate ethical questions when there's no easy answer; how to find spiritual strength; how to fit in to a new community without losing yourself. All of this is imparted with the classic perks of great fiction. Kinsman's writing is fresh and her characters ring true. Sadie is such a likable character. I can't wait to read the next in the series. Wonderful book.

Review Title: The Art of Truthfulness (review of Shades of Truth by Naomi Kinsman)
Reviewer: Janice S. Garey
***** 5 Stars

This book is part of a series, "From Sadie's Sketchbook," and is categorized as Juvenile Fiction. The author, Naomi Kinsman, has a gift in weaving together events in the life of young middle school/high school age character, Sadie, that escalate into the drama of knowing the truth, or what appears to be the truth, and then the difficulty of determining the proper time, way, and persons to reveal it to. The adults in the novel face their own sets of problems that are realistically portrayed and shown to be an additional source of stress in Sadie's life.

Through new friendships, Sadie is subtly introduced to church activities in a non-preachy way. This element in the book should not offend those who want a full picture of all the elements involved in the lives of people around them. The church is a necessary part of the plot because it is a place of refuge at one point. Don't let the mention of church or Christians scare you away from this good story. The few Christians portrayed are shown to be flawed people who look to a higher power for help in troubling times. Sadie, the main character, is a seeker and wonderer about such things.

The book shows both sides of a controversial issue, the hunting of bears. The coverage of the issue will be enlightening to all who are interested in wildlife.

Another feature of the book is the sidebars at the end of the chapter that show connection with Sadie's BFF through e-mail and another device that gives backstory and a bit of relief from the building tension in the main story. This part seems like a bonus to the main book and makes the whole book deserving of an A+ rating.

The next book in the series, Flickering Hope, promises to be excellent, too, based on this first offering. All who enjoy a good story, no matter what age, will appreciate this author's expert storytelling ability.
In this book readers are introduced to Sadie Douglas, a young girl whose family decides to move from California to Owl Creek, Michigan. Sadie's mom has been sick for awhile so the family thought that the move might just help. While Sadie puts a positive perspective on moving thinking of it as a great adventure she quickly learns that it isn't so easy to make new friends because of her dad's new job which is working as a middle man between bear hunters and researchers. When Sadie finally makes a new friend at school, its with Ruth who happens to be a preachers daughter. Sadie starts attending youth meetings with Ruth and has high hopes that she and Ruth will become best friends but something happens that has Sadie questioning Ruth's loyalty, and not only that bear season has started and Sadie can't quit worrying about the bears.

What a wonderful story. I really thought the author captured the essence of Sadie. While her life was good in California, she set out with a positive attitude about the family move, because she hoped that it would help her mother.Sadie's character was very easy to relate to. I thought the problems that she faced were very realistic. The spiritual questions that she pondered were dealt with in a good way as well. I always love when a dog is written into a story and with this book we had Higgins.
A great story that's filled with positive messages but doesn't come off as preachy or overly sweet. I think this book is very appropriate for ages 7 and up. I really enjoyed reading about Sadie and look forward to reading more of this series.
Highly recommended!
