Prince Tennyson

Chelsea is a young girl, she's not sure what she believes about God, but she's gone to Church with her grandmother, and they said that God was real, but her mom said that he's not real. Who should she believe? She knows that she needs to find out, so that she can be sure just where her dad is. Her dad was in the Iraq war and one dreadful Wednesday some soldiers came to their home and told them that he had been killed. That's when Chelsea's world came crashing down for the first time. Then her mom had a mental breakdown and the family came to live with her grandma in Phoenix. But her Wednesdays never seem to get any better, in fact, Chelsea is ready to ask the principal at her school if they can just skip Wednesdays every week. Her teacher doesn't understand about her dad, Chelsea's class had to write a story about someone they knew and Chelsea chose to write about her dad, who everybody called Prince Tennyson, because of the way that he treated others. When Chelsea started reading it aloud to the class, some kids laughed and her teacher got mad and ripped up Chelsea's paper, saying that it wasn't supposed to be a fairy-tale, this happened on a Wednesday too, of course! Now, Chelsea must find out for herself, and maybe for her mom too, if God is real and if that's where her dad has gone.

This book was so amazing! I loved it, although it did make me cry really hard. Chelsea was so sweet as she went about her way trying to determine if God was real, and just where her dad was. I loved how she enlisted the help of those around her, he mom and even a little boy who went to school with her. The ending was a tear-jerker, seriously, read this one, but just know that when you read it you are going to cry and cry hard! I don't know how much it is now, but I was able to pick the kindle version of it up for free, you might want to watch, cause I know you want to read it!

  1. I don't think I'm in the mood for a tear jerker, but I keep this in mind for the future. Some of the sad stories I've read have been so powerful, sticking with me for a long time (i.e. The Fault in Our Stars).

Deseret Bookshelf Plus Review

I'm super excited to be able to tell you about Deseret Bookshelf's newest feature, Plus. I actually first heard about plus coming six months ago at Deseret Book's ladies night. I thought it sounded pretty great and now that I've tried it, I think it's even better than it sounded. It's basically a subscription that you add on top of the Deseret Bookshelf App. If you have Deseret Book's Platinum membership, you pay only $6.99 a month or $69 a year. If you don't it's $9.99 a month or $99 a year. Either way that's a really good deal for what you are going to be getting.

Here's the deal. With plus, you get to listen to all of their audiobooks...for FREE! Something I noticed on this is that you get to listen to even the newest books that are just barely in the store for FREE. I love this! Who has the time to run to the store to grab the book the very day it comes out? Not me, I'm too busy chasing kids around to do that!

Not to mention - have you…

SeaQuest Aquarium Giveaway

For this week's Friday Favorite (I know...it's only Wednesday!) I want to tell you about something new that I got to try out just last week. It's the SeaQuest Aquarium located in the Layton Hills Mall in Layton. 




This is a pretty new thing, it actually just opened in November. It's new, it's beautiful and there really is nothing like it located in Davis County. And actually, the way that it's been set up there isn't a whole lot like it out there. You see, it's not just an aquarium, it's really an interactive experience. There are only a few exhibits in the whole aquarium that have animals in them that you can't/shouldn't interact with. Those exhibits have high walls on them so you really can't interact with them anyway. Everything else has low walls. You can touch, feed, examine pretty much anything you see here. That makes it so much more than an aquarium.

I love the way it's set up in areas. Each of the rooms has a different and fun …
