Tiny Angel by Nancy Carty Lepri


 This is a cute book for your tweens.  the theme is bullying and friendship along with peer pressure.  Lepri helps the reader see that being in the "in crowd" isn't always what it's cracked up to be.  This is a very good message for those in between years when your child wants to fit in but can't find his/her click.  It can be a hard road to travel alone.  Tiny Angel will help the reader see that sometimes it isn't good to be in the "in crowd".  It's hard to turn the other cheek and take a stand.  While this was a very cute book I must stay true to my language code (see code here) and let you know there are some words in this book that I consider curse words. 


When her dad is transferred to a new town, Macy Carver leaves behind her best friend and everything she knows. Suddenly she is the new girl…alone and bullied. An unexpected flash announces guardian angel Jody, who teaches her how to fit in and become a forever friend.

Thanks for the lovely review of Nancy's book. I'm glad you enjoyed it.

I had to go and look at your language code because I had read the book and I couldn't rememer any cuss words. Thanks for including the link so readers know what kinds of words you're talking aout.

I recently created a trailer for this book. Your readers can find it at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LpzS_vYroHA

Thanks again.

Wishing you and your readers a blessed Christmas.

Thank you for your review of my book. I too had to go to your language code to see what words you consider curse words and was surprised for I knowingly did not infuse any curses in my book. But you have a right to your opinion, and I respect that. Thank you again for your candor. Happy holidays to you.

I was concerned with your comments about my using "curse" words in my text, so curiosity got the better of me and I went through the manuscript. I found 1 "darn", 1 "heck", 1 "gosh" and 7 "geesh".

Because of your stance on not using these words, I'm surprised, but honored that you continued reading my book.

Thank you again...
