Review of the book It's Okay about It by Lauren Casper

I really enjoyed this book. It is about a parent who has an autistic son and she writes about his life lessons that we all can learn from and help better our life. I like the quote on page 15 says " What we see as set-backs or standstills are actually turning points in our story. We see failure, but GOD sees progress and gently nudges us to keep walking, or crawling,forward-to pick ourselves up and try again and again and again. " Another quote is " I'm learning that GOD often works that way in our lives-quietly behind the curtain, moving all the parts to create something beautiful and unexpected. But because I don't have his perspective, and I can't see the plan for building my unique life, I complain and worry."

I also like the quote on page 27 that says " Scripture points to the important and value of all our emotions as response to life. There's an entire book of the bible titled Lamentations. A lamentation is defined as weeping, or a passionate expression of grief or sorrow. To lament something is to outwardly express the full agony felt in your heart, because there are moments in life when no other response is appropriate. Ecclesiastes 3:4 tells us there is a time to weep, and a time to laugh, a time to mourn and a time to dance. This tells me that weeping and mourning are just as important as laughing and dancing."

I like the quote on page 41" sometimes GOD takes us on an exhausting, uphill battle. We stumble and fall and think we can't do it, but when we get up and take our Father's hand, we find that together we can do more than we ever though possible."

Review of book Beyond Justice by Cara Putman

This book was a thrilling book and kept my attention the entire time. It was about a lawyer named Hayden and she takes on this case even though people are trying to stop her from finding out the outcome of the case. It has many twists and turns it in that you don't see coming. I read the entire book in 3 days because I could not put it down. I think if this author would write more books I would read them because I her writing interesting and intense. I talked about this book to my mom and dad because I enjoyed it so much. I could not wait to read every page and chapter and did not want to put it down. I don't want to say to much because I do not want to give up too much so someone else can enjoy this book and enjoy its suspenseful.Hayden ends up getting her own law firm and business after she masters this case. So she was a really good lawyer and really knows what she is doing. There were other characters in the book as well. Her roommate Emilie who helps along the way as well and Emilie's cousin Andrew who is going through his own problems in the book that seem to intertwine with Hayden. In the end you will find out who falls in love and what happens to the characters as well. Overall a very good book and would recommend it to anyone who wants a good read.
