Life Happens

Sorry, I haven't been faithful in posting lately.  My mom is in the hospital.  She had heart surgery this week and is doing fine.  My brother in law is also in ICU 2 doors away from Mom, and my husband recently got out of the hospital too.  It is getting bad when the nurses know you by your first name and have a cup of coffee waiting for you when you get there.

I can thank God that He has never left us alone through all of this and has had to carry us when the going got tough.

I just want to ask all of you for your prayers for me and my family.

Invasion by Jon S. Lewis

I did not really know what to expect from this book when I ordered it.  I am not a major sci-fi fan but I have grandsons who do enjoy this genre.  My oldest grandson read it after I finished and said he enjoyed reading it. 

Following the death of his parents, Colt is forced to move to Arizona to live with his grandfather.  The only person he knows in his new town is a childhood friend named Dani.  He also meets a boy, Oz whom he has not met before, yet seems strangely familiar.  The trio of friends are drawn into a world of shape shifters, flying morotcycles, and aliens.  Everything Colt thought was normal now seems to have disappeared.  His life will never be the same.

Although I did not enjoy this book as much as others I have read, I did find myself lost in the story at times.  I think this book would be a good book for young sci-fi fans.  I received this book from BookSneeze in exchange for an honest and open review.
