Sometimes it takes a book a while to find its niche. THE GIRL WHO SAW CLOUDS has settled in at
#1 Children’s Science Fiction Books
#1 Children’s Fantasy Books.
Of course! Science Fiction + Fantasy! That’s it!
Rose has read all of the Judith A. Barrett books.
She reviewed the books on Alligators Who Read Great Books*. Five stars for each one.
*It’s imaginary. Tough guys are fond of imaginary. ~Spike
What’s the same? Both books have the word “CLOUDS” in their titles, and the colors on the covers are very similar. Aimee Louise is on the cover of both books. What else is the same? The story of the US grid going down, and the farm becoming a refuge for neighbors and friends. And the villain? No change there either!
What’s different? THE GIRL WHO SAW CLOUDS is a Young Adult Novel, with a focus on Aimee Louise and the other children.
The focus of DANGER IN THE CLOUDS is on Major Elliott and the other adults.
Same story; different perspectives.
Which should you read? Depends on which perspective appeals to you.
psst. if you read both, let me know which one you prefer. And why, of course.
I don’t see the details other people see. I see stories. Do you see this fanciful creature? A toy? What do you notice about it?
I saw his story, and he became a major character in The Girl Who Saw Clouds.
Does this help? Can you guess what major role Happy Spikey Guy played in my debut novel?
#FlatRose took her new assignment as Marketing Assistant seriously at the I Heart Books signing event in Jacksonville, FL.
When folks stepped close enough to snitch a piece of candy, Rose directed them to the opportunity to be eligible for our drawing for a free book, Sweet Deal Sealed, and the opportunity to be among the first to know when The Girl Who Saw Clouds is published. Triple bonus!
She was a little embarrassed for the balloon creature that was supposed to be an alligator, according to the balloon guy. Rose was heard to whisper it looked more like an anteater.
