Not a bad book, but...
...there were some things that really annoyed me when I was reading it.
Reminiscent of Yargo
Yargo was a book written decades ago about a woman who gets transported to an alien world and ends up changing their world inadvertently and, yes, there's the love story angle also.
Nothing To It
The writing was good, with the occasional misspelled word, or missing word.
Example: "...have to up and down the stairs...".
I was fine reading this until...
...the author decided to parallel his character, Josefa, with Jesus.
...and inventive, to be sure, but I had a difficult time with the level of violence and ignorance portrayed; especially as this is a middle-grade read.
A fictional guide...
...for young teens on how to start a business. In this instance, a waffle business.
The author definitely has a flair for this type of genre, but just as I would get going, enjoying the story, I'd stumble over a sentence that didn't make sense.
Example: He wore a white-dusty surcoat open in two neared his black trousers and long boots."
A Simple Read for Young Teens
A lot of tense jumping, which can confuse the reading and while the dialogue is juvenile, the story has potential.
...and with some editing could really be great.
