I really enjoyed The Dirt. It was a fun story to read. Once I started I couldn’t wait to see what happened.
Lucy’s Dad was getting remarried and her and her 2 sister were all in the wedding party in sea foam green dresses that none of them like. Once the wedding was over Lucy would be going to boarding school which she was so looking forward to. She and her older sister did not get along and she couldn’t wait to leave. When finally arriving for the ceremony there was a guest that they did not know. Little did they know this unknown guest would change everything for the family.
Who was this unknown guest? How does this turn the family upside down? Does Lucy still go to boarding school? You will need to read the book to find out what happens next. I think anyone would like this book. It was easy to read.

Poseidon and the Sea of Fury
A young Poseidon must triumph over aquatic terrors in this Heroes in Training adventure. The merciless Cronus and his Titan buddies are in hot pursuit of Zeus, Hera, and Poseidon, who plan to travel across the treacherous boiling sea in order to save a fellow Olympian. They have a boat, but they also have a problem: Poseidon can’t swim and is terrified of the water (well, really of the creatures that lurk in its depths). The group faces danger after danger as they battle singing sirens, a fishy and ferocious Titan named Oceanus, and people-eating monsters sent by Cronus himself. Can Poseidon overcome his fears and help his fellow heroes escape Cronus and his cronies?
Heroes in Training by Joan Holub & Suzanne Williams
Authors Joan Holub and Suzanne Williams deliver fun, adventures, and a few surprises as ten-year-old Olympians go on a journey of a lifetime to discover their true identities and defeat their Titan enemies.
Praise for Heroes in Training
“Readers will gobble this down and look for more, make no mythtake.”
“This is a fun read, casting Zeus in the role of relatable kid, and there is a nice balance between his primary goal of survival and his sense of destiny and adventure. . . Share this title, and likely more to come, with those still too young for Percy Jackson’s adventures.”

Zeus and the Thunderbolt of Doom (Book 1)
After pulling a magical thunderbolt from a stone, ten-year-old Zeus goes on the adventure of a lifetime in this thrilling start to a brand-new series! The terrible Titans–merciless giants who enjoy snacking on humans–have dominated the earth and put the world into chaos. But their rule is about to be put to the test as a group of young Olympians discover their powers and prepare to righteously rule the universe….
Ten-year-old Zeus is mystified (and super-annoyed) by the fact that he keeps getting hit by lightening. Every. Single. Year. He also longs for adventure, as he has never been far from the cave where he grew up.
Zeus gets his wish–and a lot more than he bargained for–when he is kidnapped by dangerous, giant Titans! In self-defense, he grabs the first thing he sees–an actual thunderbolt he pulls from a stone that is covered in mysterious markings. Zeus is the only one who can decipher the markings, and sets off on a quest to rescue his youthful fellow Olympians from the evil Cronus. Armed with his trusty thunderbolt (named Bolt, of course), Zeus is on an adventure of a lifetime–and a journey to fulfill his destiny as King of the Gods.
Hades and the Helm of Darkness (Book 3 coming April 2013)
The Heroes in Training are entering the Underworld—if Hades can conquer his canine fears, that is.
The Underworld usually isn’t really meant to be a fun place—but tell that to Hades! He loves the dark and the stinky smell of sulfur. However, there is one thing that Hades is not a fan of: dogs. And when Zeus and his fellow Olympians encounter Cerberus—a snarling, three-headed dog—Hades must conquer his fears and tame the hound so everyone can continue into the Underworld and deposit their Titan prisoner, Oceanus, back where he belongs!
But with magical water that causes forgetfulness, hot beds of lava, and another epic battle with two more Titans standing in their way, will Zeus and his heroes make it out of the Underworld with everyone intact?

Author Joan Holub
I graduated from college in Texas with a fine arts degree, and then freelanced as an art director at a graphic design firm for eight years. I dreamed of working in children’s books, so I moved to New York City and became associate art director in Scholastic trade books, where I designed books for children and worked with editors and illustrators. It was a great job.
I illustrated my first published children’s book in 1992 and soon began illustrating full time. I began completing manuscripts and mailing them out to publishers in the early 1990s. In 1996, I sold my first two manuscripts — Boo Who? A Spooky Lift-the-Flap Book (Scholastic) and Pen Pals (Grosset & Dunlap). Yippee!
Now I write full time and have written and/or illustrated over 130 children’s books. Creating books that entertain, inform, and interest children (and me) is a fabulous job that I truly love.

I love brownies!! I found some really good brownies at Vermont Brownie Company. I was able to try one of Vermont Brownie Company‘s Sample Pack. Which includes 6 individually wrapped brownies labeled and placed in unique and fun gift box. It contained some very yummy brownies. The Sample Box included the signature, espresso dulce de leche, peanut butter, maple toffee crunch, walnut chunk, and blondie. The first one I tried was the Signature Brownie. Wow! Was it good! I could taste the dark chocolate and a bit of sea salt on the first bite! Good thing I didn’t have a whole box of them because they would not have lasted very long! Actually I loved them all. They were each very moist and soft just like a brownie should be.
Vermont Brownie Company was started by Katherine and Shawna one day after spending the day snowshoeing New Years Day 2008. They were talking about how they would each like to start there own company, they talked about the long hours and commitment that it would take, but they also talked about how it would be worth while. That is when Vermont Brownie Company was born. After testing many brownie recipes they came up with their signature brownie which is not too cakey not to fudgy but just right. Vermont Brownie Company brownies are made from scratch using local, wholesome, farm-fresh ingredients that are always natural and preservative-free.
Vermont Brownie Company would be a great gift for someone on your Christmas list! You can get a sampler pack of 2 brownies up to one 72 brownies! Vermont Brownie Company are very reasonable priced and I am sure anyone on your list would love to receive them!! Make sure you visit Vermont Brownie Company to see all the different flavors of brownies they offer, including a couple that are seasonal.

First Time: The Legend of Garison Fitch
“What if history didn’t happen that way … the first time?”
Garison Fitch was one of the most revered scientists in the Soviet Americas until he left fame behind to work on a secret project in his log cabin in the mountains of Marx.
But something went wrong. Instead of traveling interdimentionally, Garison has traveled through time … twice.
Now, he’s in something called “The United States of America” and a woman he’s never met before is calling herself his wife. It it a hoax? Or, has he somehow changed history?
If so, can he return the world to what he believes is “normal”, or must he live in this strange world he created?
“Sam continues to weave his magic as a storyteller. I always find myself anxious to find out what will happen next and what kind of twist will befall the adventurers. It helps to be familiar with the places that the heroines go, which adds to the story.”
“I’ve had a few very unproductive but enjoyable days thanks to Samuel Ben White. If you haven’t read Sam’s books you have been missing a treat. These were funny, suspenseful, spiritual and kept you turning the pages.”
“Just wanted to say how much I have enjoyed your books. I have a Kindle and I have purchased all of the Garison Fitch novels. I am in Saudi Arabia and your books have really helped take me away from here.”
Also Part of the Series:
Two years ago Garison Fitch traveled through time and rewrote history. An accident in the eighteenth century created a whole new world, and even gave Garison a wife he had never met before. Now, he’s got a daughter and he’s coming to enjoy this world he created. Until he’s attacked by men masquerading as Indians, and a funeral procession from out of the past enlists his help, and a tree grows from sappling to full-grown in a matter of minutes, threatening his daughter’s very life. Time itself is unraveling and Garison’s trips through time seem to be the cause. Garison must go back in time once again and keep himself from making the original trip that started the problem. But he can’t use his time machine to go back. How does one sew up a rip in time?
