I like how Nat goes to find his dad, and how he thinks his friend Wayland goes overboard in a storm. And I like how much the adults love Nat. And I like Nat’s friend Paulo. I really, really like the whirlpool of death and the surprise at the end.
I don’t like Snake because he tricks Nat. And I don’t like that Nat lies a lot. But Nat learns a lesson.
I would recommend this book to other kids. It’s very exciting.
I went outside my realm of reading with this book, I’m so glad I did. Dans a very deep writer and this collection of short stories doesn’t disappoint. I can’t say any one of them is a favorite because they all got to me one way or another. Follow a writer into how he sees the world and dreams of ways to deal with it or not…great read Dan, as always you can sure make me think and feel with your words. I totally recommend this book!
What if Twitter Were ‘Real’ Life?. Im sharing because its so true..
This is a book of excellent , entertaining, and sometimes sad stories. My favorite was the first story Sandcastles . The twins pulled me in. The second story mad me sad. Justin has done a superb job in putting this book together . I love he mentions his parents in the acknowledgements. I don’t give to much away cause you really should read it yourself . Amazon.com is where you can find it. Thank you Justin for sharing your talents with us.
This is beautiful!
when something in life
has been engraved
a memory of a single day
of a year
we remember such bliss alongside torment
we are given the gift of memories
to be able to see again what was once so enchanting
the day a friend vanished
memories have no control for themselves
only over us
a lingering eagerness to obtain time flung to past
every second in life becoming memorable
whether it be to you
or the person rembering you
when something in life has been engraved
