Character Council of Greater Kentucky and LIE review

What a cool thing I discovered -- LIE was reviewed in this monthly educator bulletin for The Character Council of Greater Kentucky.  Now, as a writer, on first glance, I thought this was a writer's journal --i.e. development of fictional people in literature-- I have 10 distinct first person points of view in LIE and maybe someone in the Kentucky area thought this interesting.

But no, it's character as in a way to build ethics and values that we can all agree on like fairness, respect, trustworthiness,  and caring for one another -- themes that are at the heart of my debut young adult novel, LIE.   (We can agree that these are good things, right?  In our current political climate I often wonder!)

Here's the link to the Character Council of Greater Kentucky -- and you will find there a PDF of this amazingly insightful newsletter on building character in grades 1-12 --

And here's an excerpt from their LIE review: "This novel is a smart, topical story about a racially motivated hate crime, its far-ranging consequences and the community determined to keep it under wraps..."

Cool, right?

As if I noticed even then that most aspects in our way of life bring us only short-term pleasure, that way of life is about a continuous re-arranging and re-imaging from decrease, that we have to reach within ourselves to find the strength to persevere

Wow, how did you discover their review of your novel there? For those who would like to read it, click the "In My School" image on the home page, and then you'll find the "July 2012 Issue on Decisiveness" link to the pdf. Here's another nice bit about your writing from their review: "Avoiding preachiness, Bock handles the novel's multiple viewpoints exceptionally well..." Kudos for the good review of your novel.
