KARMACK by J.C. Whyte gets LADYBUGGED
Ladybug Lin here again and boy howdy are my wings flapping!
What an UNEXPECTED DELIGHT this book is!
From the very beginning I fell head-over-heels in THRILL with this book.
I mean SERIOUSLY! Anyone who's ever been the recipient of a bully's cruelty will LOVE this book and the way Ms. J.C. Whyte's creative mind turns the tables.
KARMACK is a book I truly wish had been available when I was still actively teaching in the classroom...I can guarantee it would have held a prominent place in my yearly lesson planning...Yep... it really IS that good...AND that inspiring.
Ms. Whyte teaches the value of growing beyond bullying through her ingenious reworking of the concepts of Karma and consequences.
This is one the the BEST Middle Grade/Tween books I have read...maybe in...well FOREVER!
Five stars just doesn't seem enough for the value this book offers, (Ten seems closer)
but what I am forced to limit my praise to what is allowed...
So, I, Ladybug Lin, with great reluctance, am forced to award KARMACK
ONLY FIVE STARS...
while also pleading with Ms. Whyte to
KEEP 'EM COMING! You're a Beacon for the future of our youth readers!
