WHAT PEOPLE SAY
MURDER AT WHISPERING PINES
The author's use of the stream of consciousness technique right from the very beginning caught my interest and allowed me to step into the minds of the characters. I loved how the author captures the feelings of the characters. Character development is impeccable, the setting captured with vividness, and the plot filled with unexpected twists. Murder at Whispering Pines is an engrossing read, realistic, and hugely entertaining, a real page-turner.

ESCAPE FROM DOUBTING CASTLE
We really liked Escape from Doubting Castle. It was easy to read, kept my son entertained throughout, and made him really think. Even weeks later, he’s able to remember the storyline well. If I can provide fun reading material that will challenge him to grow in his faith, I’m thrilled! Book Two is supposed to be released soon. We look forward to it.

ARE THERE BULLIES ON THE BUDDY BENCH?
This story is absolutely adorable and one that will resonate with every child in their never-ending struggle to fit in and stay far, far away from the Buddy Bench. Although bullying is a serious topic, the book is laced with charm and silly humor that lightens things up, making it an excellent story to read with any classroom for a fun time as well as a learning tool. I enjoyed this book very much. Well-deserved five stars!

Are There Bullies on the Buddy Bench?
I am looking forward to reading more Life Lessons with LeaLea stories. I think the author has captured the hard navigation children can go through with friends, bullies and families. I really liked how the story unfolded and how LeaLea answered the question of the book's title. I believe this book would be a good addition to Elementary school, classroom, and homeschool libraries as well as personal libraries for the family. Rhode Island Reader
