WELCOME 11-YEAR-OLD GUEST BLOGGER

I wanted to share this review with you by guest blogger, 11 year-old Ireland Stuart.  Ireland’s dad bought a copy of my book back in June when I was signing at the Borders at Baltimore-Washington International Airport.

Of course, I was thrilled that Ireland loved my book (always nice to hear!) but I was even more touched that she took the time to write such a thoughtful review — I think this may be the beginning of her career as a great literary critic!

Looking for Salvation at the Dairy Queen
A novel by: Susan Gregg Gilmore

The book Looking for Salvation at the Dairy Queen was a great book to read! One of the reasons I liked the book was because at times there was so much suspense, I couldn’t put it down!

Another reason why I liked the book was because I liked how there was times when I could really understand how Catherine Grace and Martha Ann felt. Those were reasons why I liked the book, Looking for Salvation at the Dairy Queen.

I had two favorite parts in the book. One of my favorite parts in the book was when Catherine Grace finally earns enough money from her jam making business to escape Ringgold and leave for Atlanta, Georgia.

My other favorite part in the book was when Catherine Grace and Martha Ann find out they have a mother. Martha Ann was bursting with happiness but Catherine Grace was upset that her mother ran away from her family. So much suspense!! I was overjoyed when Catherine Grace figured out that Lena Mae was her mom and she loved her.

That was my review for the book, Looking for Salvation at the Dairy Queen.
