Einstein’s Trunk
by Jim Haberkorn
ISBN/UPC: 9781599554525
Vendor: Cedar Fort, Inc.
Imprint: Bonneville
Release Date: March 12, 2011

Summary: Rulon Hurt is a straightlaced, religious, and hardworking farmer from Idaho. Yohaba Melekson is a wild, worldly, and impossibly intelligent physics student from Switzerland. But when the two discover a trunk full of Albert Einstein’s secret writings, they learn that opposites attract in this electric tale that pits truth against lies, faith against knowledge, heart against mind, and an epic struggle for survival against the planet’s imminent destruction

About the author: Jim Haberkorn was born in Brooklyn, New york in 1951. When a teenager, he moved with his family to the west coast, settling in San Francisco for a time before moving south into Silicon Valley. After attending college, completing a church mission, and spending six years in the Marines, he joined a computer company in 1978 and is still employed there today. He has lived on three continents and done business in over forty countries but still counts Idaho–the home of Boise State University, his alma mater, and Rulon Hurt, his hammer-wielding cowboy–as one of his favorite places. Currently, Jim lives in Zurich, Switzerland with his wife Kim.

Book Review and Giveaway

The Gifted
by Deborah Andreasen
Paperback, 240 pages

Published March 28th 2011

ISBN 1456578235

4 stars

Pyper just wants a normal life. But ever since the day she died, she’s been able to control objects with her mind. What she can’t control is a mother who fears Pyper’s ability and the possibility of it being discovered. Pyper only finds solace in her friend and brother, Baler. When Pyper moves to yet another new school, she meets Kael, who takes an immediate interest in her. He knows her secret, and he’s got one for her: he needs her help saving the Fae people. The problem is, Pyper doesn’t believe in Faeries. But when her brother is abducted, Pyper doesn’t have much choice. Can she really save a race she doesn’t believe exists? Can she rescue her brother? And can she accept her second chance at life?

The first thing that grabbed me about The Gifted is how swiftly the writing pulls you in and holds you. Each page is tight and creatively crafted. Pyper, a red haired green eyed fireball, has been forced to move states over and over because of the impact of her strange abilities. As the book opens we find her in a new shcool and once again, two girls have singled her out as a freak. She has a little bit of trouble controlling her temper, and those on the receiving end meet with paranormal circumstances. Watching all of this unfold is Kael, popular gorgeous classmate who doesn’t seem at all phased by Pyper’s blatant efforts to completely ignore his advances. He tries and eventually succeeds in winning a tiny bit of Pyper’s trust. Neither he nor the two mean girls are at all what they seem.

Pyper has always had her brother Baler to confide in and lean on, but as time wears on he seems to be slipping further and further away to his new group of friends. Little do either of them know just how influential and life changing their choice in peers will become. Brother and sister have yet to meet the battle they were meant to fight. Andreasen takes faerie lore and puts in a fantastical paranormal twist which will appeal to Young Adults. The Gifted is a clean read I would gladly let my children read and once you pick it up you’ll stay with the plot until the end. I loved the brother and sister loyalty portrayed as well as the kind love Kael shows. It’s endearing to see such genuinely nice YA characters.

Paperback, 422 pages
Published 2007
by Little, Brown
series Maximum Ride #1

Summary: Fourteen-year-old Maximum Ride, better known as Max, knows what it’s like to soar above the world. She and all the members of the “Flock”–Fang, Iggy, Nudge, Gasman and Angel–are just like ordinary kids–only they have wings and can fly. It may seem like a dream come true to some, but their lives can morph into a living nightmare at any time–like when Angel, the youngest member of the “Flock,” is kidnapped and taken back to the “School” where she and the others were genetically engineered by sinister scientists. Her friends brave a journey to Death Valley, CA, to save Angel, but soon enough, they find themselves in yet another nightmare–this one involving fighting off the half-human, half-wolf “Erasers” in New York City. Whether in the treetops of Central Park or in the bowels of the Manhattan subway system, Max and her adopted family take the ride of their lives. Along the way Max discovers from her old friend and father-figure Jeb–now her betrayed and greatest enemy–that her purpose is save the world–but can she?

A World Without Heroes
by Brandon Mull
Hardcover, 464 pages
Published March 15th 2011
by Aladdin
ISBN 141699792X
series: Beyonders #1

Jason Walker has often wished his life could be a bit less predictable–until a routine day at the zoo ends with Jason suddenly transporting from the hippo tank to a place unlike anything he’s ever seen. In the past, the people of Lyrian welcomed visitors from the Beyond, but attitudes have changed since the wizard emperor Maldor rose to power. The brave resistors who opposed the emperor have been bought off or broken, leaving a realm where fear and suspicion prevail.
In his search for a way home, Jason meets Rachel, who was also mysteriously drawn to Lyrian from our world. With the help of a few scattered rebels, Jason and Rachel become entangled in a quest to piece together the word of power that can destroy the emperor, and learn that their best hope to find a way home will be to save this world without heroes.
