Saving Sailor

Saturday, November 20, 2010
Book: Saving Sailor by Renee Riva, David C. Cook Publishing, 2007
Genre: Realistic/Heartwarming fiction
Target Audience: Girls 18+
Subjects: Family relationships, friendship
Summary: AJ knows life doesn’t get any better than this. Being nine years old, hanging out at the lake, drifting in an old boat with her dog sailor, hiding a hamster from her parents, arguing with siblings, watching her mom pretend to be a movie star in public, and making friends with the new boy on the island – what more could a girl want? This heartwarming story is about a young girl during one summer of her life. There is about a page of suspense towards the end, but the rest of it is just life through the eyes of a nine year old.
Notes: This story is just fun. It’s not out to make any particular point or accurately represent something. It’s just the author telling a story, a story that from the info in the author’s notes, is similar to her own. It makes you relive your childhood. It makes you smile at AJ and her siblings. I recommend it for light, entertaining reading, but not something that will greatly challenge you spiritually.
Recommendation Scale: 3/5

Matthew 18:1-3 – At that time the disciples came to Jesus and asked, “Who, then, is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven?” He called a little child to him, and placed the child among them. And he said: “Truly I tell you, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven.
