Callie's Contest of Courage by Jan May Book Review

This review copy was given to me by Jan May, the author of, "Callie's Contest of Courage." All opinions are honest and are my own.

Book Description: "Eleven-year-old Callie Fleming is a passionate animal lover!
She's been waiting all year to enter photos in the I Love Nature Photo Contest. Her dad, who is the coolest dad in the world, is an award winning photographer and Marine Corps Reserves Sergeant. She is counting on his help to win. But when her father is untimely deployed overseas and becomes strangely silent to her emails, she finds her whole world crashing down on her. Can she muster up the courage to step out on a journey that whisks her away from all the things she loves?"

                                                    My Review

This book is an amazing story about an eleven-year-old girl named Callie Fleming, and how she finds courage to pray for her father, who is an award winning photographer and a Marine Corps Reserves Sergeant.
When her father becomes mysteriously silent to her emails, she begins to worry.
Will she ever see her father again?
It is an amazing story about faith and trust in God.
I enjoyed this story for many reasons: the prayers the scripture verses, the contests and Callie's prayer through a storm.
This book took me on an excellent journey, and I believe girls seven to eleven will quite enjoy this adventure, and many more New Millennium Girl books to come.

Shakespeare Quotations


Could great men thunder
As Jove himself does, Jove would ne'er be quiet,
For every pelting, petty officer
Would use his heaven for thunder--
Merciful heaven!
Thou rather, with thy sharp and sulohurous  bolt,
Splitt'st the unwedgeable and gnarled oak,
Than the soft myrtle!-- O, but man, proud man!
Drest in a little brief authority--
Most ignorant of what he's most assured,
His glassy essence,--like an angry ape,
Plays such fantastic tricks before high heaven,
As make the angles weep.

                                                                                                     Measure for Measure--II.2.
