A Twilight Treasure - buy it for your daughter (and son!!),
This review is from: Twilight, True Love and You: Seven Secret Steps to Finding Your Edward or Jacob (Paperback)
I got this book for my teenage daughter and read it myself first (just to see if it was giving the kind of messages that I wanted my daughter to receive)...and I realised after reading the book that I had unknowingly subscribed to and perpetrated some of the myths about relationships that can and do lead to people making poor relationship choices. I expected to whizz through it thinking "Yep, I knew that"...and yet, a few times during reading, I had pause for thought....this is a very clever book, but written in a light upbeat accessible format making it especially appropriate I feel for young women (and men). This author does not hide behind jargon; she clearly knows what she is talking about and wants to get this message delivered. And it works. Anyone from any walk of life could read this book, it is not overly technical, nor too simplistic. I am very grateful to have found a book to help guide my daughter through the potentially stormy waters of looking for love. Buy it. Read it. Then pass it on. I have.

It is hard to take this review seriously when it is biased by the fact you are a family friend of the Deacons (at least).

.....I think the purpose of these review posts is to give people the opportunity to say whether or not they liked a book. In this case, I did, and you didn't, that's fine by me.....why are you then going to the trouble of making guesses about who I do and do not know? I have also reviewed Barbara Trapido's book "Brother of the More Famous Jack" but I do not KNOW the author, I just like her book. I am planning to review Simon Parke's "Beautiful Life" and before you ask, no he is not my Dad.....just a guess but could it be you who knows the author in person which would explain your vitriolic attack on a perfectly good book?? Just a guess...!!
