Summary

A thriller novel is a novel that uses suspense, excitement, apprehension and exhilaration to tell a story. Thriller novels have villains, suspense, and action in settings such as espionage, medicine, crime, politics, and high tech.

They often involve life and death situations and have high stakes, like the control of the world or the possibility of widespread death or destruction.

Many times innocent people are victimized, stalked, or caught in situations that are beyond their control.

    It is the spring of 1861, and the serenity of Smith County, Mississippi, has been shattered by Abraham Lincoln’s declaration of war on the South. Young and old are taking up arms and marching off to war. But not ten-year-old Frank Russell. Although he is eager to enlist in the Confederate army, he is not allowed. He is too young, too skinny, too weak. After all, he’s just “Shanks,” the baby of the Russell family. War has a way of taking things away from a person, mercilessly. And this war takes from Frank a mighty sum. It’s nabbed his Pa and older brother. It’s stolen his grandfather, his grandmother. It has robbed Frank of a simpler way of life, food, his boyhood. And gone are his idealistic dreams of heroic battles and hard-fought victories. Now all that replaces those images are questions: Will I ever see my father and brother again? Why are we fighting this war? Are we fighting for the wrong reasons? Will things ever be the same around here?

    Nighttime is the best time for a boy and his best friend in this charming tale from the author of Circus in the Sky and Mermaids on Mars.  Jude’s Moon is a delightful story of a little boy who is fascinated by the moon. He believes he is the only one who can see it, so he is always so excited to point it out to his mom. “There’s the moon!” he shouts with glee every time he sees it. One day Jude is confused when the moon changes shape. He thinks someone has stolen his moon and replaced it with a croissant. When he learns it is a crescent moon, he is even more curious to learn how it changes shapes. This story is a fun and easy way to educate children on the phases of the moon.   “I recommend this book to kids that love science, teachers that want to teach their class about moon phases and parents that love to read with their kids.” —5 Girls Book Reviews   “In Jude’s Moon, Jude loves the moon so much that he believes he is the one who hung it in the sky. Throughout the story, Jude examines the phases of the moon, as well as fun facts about the sun.” —MySocialGoodNews.com
