Like Moonlight at Low Tide: Sometimes the Current is the Only Thing That Saves You by Nicole Quigley


Like Moonlight at Low Tide: Sometimes the Current is the Only Thing That Saves You by Nicole Quigley is the story of Missy Keiser, a junior in high school. When Missy was in middle school her life was miserable. She was made fun of for her appearance and her families lack of money. Then, her mother uprooted the family from their Anna Maria Island home in Florida to follow her boyfriend to Pennsylania. When things went wrong up north the family moves back to Florida. Missy is not excited to face to the people who had made her life so awful in years past, but she has to go to school. Can Missy handle what is sure to be a rough ride at her new high school? Will her old flame, Sam King, notice her? Will she make new friends? Will she keep her old friends? You know I’m not going to ruin it for you.



This debut novel from author Nicole Quigley is a wonderful read. The themes go far beyond other books which are set in high school. While Missy must battle her old foe Tanya, she must also learn to battle herself. She must learn how to look at herself through someone else’s eyes and learn that she is worthy of love and friendship. This story was realistic and not cheesy. The plot development kept me reading and wondering what was going to happen. I think any girl who had a rough middle school (thats like 99% of us, amiright?) can appreciate this book. Pick it up today!

This book was provided to my by the publisher in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own, I really loved this book and even recommended it to a friend at dinner the other night. If I thought it was horrible, I would have told you.

Rugosa: A Survival Story from Omaha to London by Creek Stewart

Creek Stewart of "Fat Guys in the Woods" fame released his first novel, Rugosa: A Survival Story from Omaha to London, on February 14. I just finished it and I was very impressed. 

Omaha is a boy scout and since the loss of his father the entire world has been turned upside down. Now he finds that one of the people nearest to him in life, London, is in trouble and he has to risk everything to save her.

Will be able to make it to her in time? Will she even be alive when he gets there? What kind of danger will he face on the way there? 

Find out the answers by reading the book. (What'd you think I was going to say?)

I really did enjoy this book. It was a gripping story and only took me three sittings to get it finished. A lot of the plot hits closer to home than I would like. An added bonus was some of the survival skills that I picked up along the way. 

I could really relate to Omaha as a character. He is a quiet person that prefers the outdoors to being around people. While b…

Cruel Harvest by Frances Elizabeth Grubb

My latest BookSneeze selection is the book Cruel Harvest by Frances Elizabeth Grubb. The story is Mrs. Grubb’s memoir of her life growing up with an abusive father. This was a hard book to read. I’ve always had a very tender spot in my heart for children that have to endure abuse. I never had to and am so thankful to my Heavenly Father for his grace in my life. Mrs. Grubb’s story was shocking, appalling and full of hope.

Her journey led her all over the country and down many dark paths. There were times of light in her life though that made all the difference to her story. Most interesting to me was how she overcame what could have made her a hard person and was still a seemingly kind and loving woman.

My heart broke over and over again as I read her story. There were times that it seemed she had escaped only to be trapped again. It was amazing to read about her tenacity and endurance for something that would have likely killed if not the body, the soul of most people. My life e…

Life and Other Near Death Experiences by Camille Pagan

Libby's entire life was turned on its head in a matter of hours one cold Chicago day. How she reacts will redefine how she lives and will change the rest of her life.

I sincerely loved this book. I was hooked from the first paragraph. Despite what could be considered an outrageous plot, I found it believable and relatable. I definitely recommend it though, there are some things that could be considered triggers for some readers so avoid it if you are sensitive about cancer, losing a parent or divorce. 

Pagán's writing was refreshing and real. I think what I loved most was the epilogue that actually wrapped up the story, without putting it in a box with a bow on it.

Since I didn't receive a free copy of this book I am linking to it here for you to purchase on Amazon. This is an affiliate link, which means that I will get a small part of the profits: Life and Other Near Death Experiences by Camille Pagan.
