Book Review: Toroa

Toroa is Erik Hofstatter's debut novel and it soars!  On the surface, this book focuses on a girl named Mahi.  Mahi does not know her dad, her mother is the opposite of ideal, and she just met a fire-breather at a local festival who turns her world upside down in a sense.  All we know … Continue reading Book Review: Toroa

Book Review: Camp Carnage

Camp Carnage was initially a book that I bought when I was in this "slasher" book mode (but let's face it, I am ALWAYS in that mode!) I buddy-read this with a friend and we both seemed to enjoy it.
