I am thrilled to share all the reviews of my new middle-grade series for girls! Please check them out today. If you have any middle-grade children who would love this book, please share.

This book deals with bullying, friends matter and family relationships. Jemsbooks encourage children of all ages to respect one another, be kind to others, be sensitive to others’ feelings and differences, and think of others first.

Here’s the newest review. Go to the link above to see all reviews.

An entertaining book with a valuable lesson!

on July 19, 2018

I loved Janice Spina’s new book “Abby and Holly, School Dance.” The writing style made you feel like you were enjoying the adventures of Abby, Holly and their friends. You’re sure to smile at the twins Derek and Davey’s shyness around Abby and Holly. It’s a delightful story. Trouble comes when one of their classmates, Justine, mysteriously becomes sick. How is the mystery solved? When Justine is bullied, how does the group of friends encourage the bullies to change their behavior. This is an enjoyable book teaches, families, and teens are sure to love and they are likely to remember not only the entertaining adventures, but the important message the story shares. Another wonderful book by Janice Spina.
* I received this book as a gift from the author and chose to review it without compensation.
