My 11 Year Old's Book Review of The Kindling by Braden Bell

The Kindling by Braden Bell

All thirteen-year-old Connor Dell wants to do is pass pre-algebra, play lacrosse, and possibly kiss Melanie Stephens. He didn’t mean to set anyone’s gym shorts on fire or make school lunches explode. But now that the strange powers inside him have been ignited, Connor’s normal teenage life is about to go up in flames!

Homework? Of course. Crushes? Sure. But who knew seventh grade included superpowers?



MJ's Review

I really liked The Kindling. It was one of the best books I read this summer. The author was really good a writing the book. I couldn't put it down. I just wanted to keep reading and reading. My favorite character was Lexa because I could relate to her life. Her brother plays jokes on her and picks on her - which happens to me at home too. My favorite part was . . . well, I really liked the whole book. I can't pick just one scene that was the best. But a really funny part was at the end when Connor asks, "I wonder what happened to all those pizzas?"  If you want to know why that's funny, then you'll just have to read the book!

I definitely recommend this book to other kids my age!




Purchase The Kindling by Braden Bell

You can buy a copy of The Kindling at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, or your local book store.




You can even stop by Braden's website and order an autographed copy of The Kindling AND it's less expensive then ordering from Amazon. This, my friends, is the awesomeness of author discounts. Be sure to order from Braden soon, because the fabulous pricing on his website only runs through his blog tour.

What a great review!!! I think Lexa is going to email MJ later. She's really happy to be someone's favorite character. She's been feeling like Conner's had all of the attention.
