3.5 Hearts - Final



3.5 of 5 hearts. A Promising Premise As Yet Incomplete in Execution. Though I ultimately found Wild Born disappointing, young readers are bound to enjoy this start to a tale which points to an impending grand-scale struggle, with far-reaching consequences, between good and evil. Who doesn’t want to save the world?

4.5 of 5 hearts. Words of Encouragement and Empowerment. Staying Strong 365 Days a Year inspires its readers through life-affirming quotations and reflections. It’s like getting a daily pep talk from Demi to help you deal with whatever obstacles, internal or external, might be causing you to stumble on your path to happiness.
