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 -- www.charactercincinnati.org.

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?

Truly,

Caroline Bock
