A wonderful read! This memoir is a fantastic look into the world of the digital age. It showcases one person’s personal story of growing up with a fascination of the tech world, and her journey to immerse herself completely in that world. As a fellow tech lover, I responded to this story immediately. It also does a wonderful job of showcasing the transition from childhood to adulthood. It highlights the struggles young adults go through to not only pursue their dreams, but to make a place for themselves in the world.
If you want an inspiring tale of the pursuit of dreams, and how doing whatever it is you are most passionate about in life can turn into something spectacular, then I, Justine: An Analog Memoir is the book for you! With summer fast approaching, personal stories of growth, struggles and personal ambition such as this is a must read.

As a teenager, one of the hardest things in life can be figuring out how to remember and apply the things we learn in school. While he
states not any one method works for everyone, author M.P. Thomson has brought together a brand new method of helping students with their
studies in his book, “The Gaming Revision Guide”.
This guide does a marvelous job of speaking to the current video game enabled generation of students whose love for the video game can
actually help them study subjects in school. Utilizing a student’s favorite game and sport, Thomson helps turn what can be boring and
mindless hours of studying into a fun gaming and scholastic exercise.
This guide is an excellent approach to helping today’s students with their studies. It makes the process fun while still helping to make
the lessons and facts needed for scholastic success easier to recall. While Thomson is quick to point out that this method isn’t guaranteed
to work for everyone, it may just be that “The Gaming Revision Guide” can be the next new method that teachers can use to help their
students in the future! Pick up your copy of M.P. Thomson’s “The Gaming Revision Guide” now!
Full discretion: I was given a free copy of this book to review by the author. All opinions are my own.
Michael Mardel’s “A Seahorse Tale” is the first YA and middle school style book I’ve ever reviewed. As such, I took my time and really dove
headfirst into this story, and what I found was quite amazing. In this story, Mardel creates a fantastic fantasy land in which he not only
entertains both children and adults alike with his creative creations, but he implements a tale of philosophical proportions. Bringing to
light the various cultural beliefs, from Christianity and mythology to Darwinism, the author blends these cultures together and implements
them in his story expertly.
Listening to this tale of the Rainbow Serpent, a creator of life on Earth who gave life to the narrator of this story, the seahorse, is a
truly unique experience. The evolution of life on the planet and the experiences with the mermaid, pirates, and other figures throughout
history as told by the seahorse are remarkable. This story does a phenomenal job of blending history and the Australian culture with the
mythology of our world, and creates a fun read that is both creative and at times poetic in it’s delivery.
This is a must read YA book. The imagery used in this story are bright and vividly accurate. The vastness of this creation is something to
behold, and each page is dripping with detail and power that makes it easy to see it as an animated film in your head. Pick up your copy of
Michael Mardel’s “A Seahorse Tale” on Amazon.com now!

brand of humor, but also boasts an honest and down to earth attitude. You can feel the heart and soul of Shane in every essay/story. This
is a fantastic read. So few books today have the heart and humor that this book does, and that’s what makes it a must have book!
