Book Review-Iris and the Dragonflies

Product Description

Iris, a feisty, solitary, eleven-year-old girl prefers being down by the creek near her house more than anywhere else in the world.

School is nothing but a joyless prison and uninterested in her classmates she spends each day gazing out the window, waiting for the dismissal bell to ring. Her only friends are the dragonflies who flit through the shoulder high bulrushes growing along the creek’s banks.

Iris discovers the dragonflies are more than they appear to be and that she is the key to resolving an age-old battle between light and dark, good and evil. She has the ability to unleash the power of the Earth to restore the balance that has been lost. This however is not what the Solaris have in mind. They are the world’s most powerful Evil and Iris is the only one who can stop them!

Will Iris and her friends be able to win this battle?

Iris and the Dragonflies is empowering, and a must read for all girls.

My Review

When I received this book to review I thought that it was going to be boring because it is written for middle school kids but I really enjoyed reading this book.  It has such a great mix of fantasy and real things that it kept me interested.  I couldn’t help but like Iris.  The author is great and tells the story so well that you have to wonder at times if it is real or fantasy.  I am amazed that she could make Iris seem so real and peg how girls Iris’s age act.  She is an amazing author and I wouldn’t mind reading more of her books.  I think that middle school kids would love this book.  I would recommend that everyone check out this book!

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
