    11. “The Boy and The Crow” took me back to when I began reading books aimed at adolescents. I could almost feel time had never passed. The author’s writing and tone reminded me of S.E.

    13. Brendan,Normally I do a fair amount of sleeping on the trip to Mexico. When I left this Sunday, I brought one book to read; your "The Boy and The Crow".Notwithstanding the conversations and meals with my colleagues, the getting on and off two airplanes, etc I had it read within 13 hours. I say "read" but what I really should use is "devoured". What a wonderful and enticing experience. There were times I was almost in tears while other times I really stressed to see what would happen next. What a [...]

    16. I usually only read murder mystery type books but when I was asked if I would like to read this I thought sure why not. Well I can honestly say I really enjoyed it.

It keeps your interest and makes you want to come back for more. A real page turner.
