Waiting for the Light to Change

It's fall and Sarah is excited to be teaching school again. But things this year are not going to be as easy for her as they have been in the past. Sarah is going to have to deal with two boys bent on making her life miserable. She's going to do some things that she's not proud of in regard to these two boys in the name of revenge. Her daughter Jenny is going to have a really hard freshman year too, and it's not going to help anything that her dad, missing from her life ever since she was a year old is going to be moving to the same town and trying to steal all her affection. Sarah is not sure what to think when rumors start flying about her and a former student. She just has to hope that anyone who really knows her, including her kids, will be able to look past the rumors to who she really is. But Sarah has let hate consume her with regard to her ex-husband Bob and his new wife for so many years, will she be able to let go and move on with her own life?

I had a really hard time with Sarah, as a main character she's just kind of mean. She thinks and says hateful things about both her ex-husband and the two boys that are trying to ruin her life. Yet I still felt bad for her, she really did get the worst of it when her husband left her with three kids under the age of 8, what was she supposed to do? I was a bit confused by the flashbacks to her mom too, but there weren't all that many of those. I did like Jenny, though some of the choices she made near the end of the book made me want to shake her. I thought the plot was pretty good, and the moral was great!

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'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 …
