The CHB Read & Review Club is for educators and students who enjoy reading and would like to share the joy of reading with others through reviewing and recommending books. As a bookshop, we often receive special review copies of books in advance of their release dates so that we can review them. However, since we can only read so many books and we value the thoughts and opinions of other readers, CHB is recruiting educators and students to read and review advance reader copies (or arcs) of books that we receive, and we'll post their reviews on the Cavalier House Books website via theRead & Review Club Blog!
Layla D. (13) is a Read & Review Club member, and she has written a review of Colleen Houck's new book, Reawakened! Check out what she has to say about the book:
Reawakened is a fun, fast-paced, novel about Egyptian gods, adventures, and two forbidden lovers. Lily, a teenage New Yorker, comes across Amon, an Egyptian sun god, and by certain circumstances Lily must help Amon travel to Egypt and defeat Seth, the god of Chaos. This book, in my opinion, is really fun and adventurous. It includes nice historical lessons of Egyptian artifacts and has large amounts of humor. Teens can relate to this book through understanding how difficult it is to leave your comfort zone. If you're looking for a fast summer read, this will have to be my pick!
Thanks to Layla for her review!
