Why do adults afraid of power in this book

Reblogged from XOX:
Bone Quill - Carole E. Barrowman, John Barrowman

The twins' dad was not a good father. He tried to use their power.


The twins' mom is not that good either, she forbid them to use their power.


The twins are using their power but got into trouble.


Now, why do I still like this book.


100 pages in. And the blind friend is still the main character.


And they are not doing some major thing yet. 


Starts with 4 stars. 


180 pages in. 


And they found their mom. The hint is in the painting, and the adults stopping the twins from going into painting slowed their progress in finding their mom.


So what is the big deal?

What are we learning here? Should children be allowed to develop their ability, through trial and error, even if it is a bit risky? 


The answer seems to be a yes. The mom is not that useful as she seems overly nervous and lack of good planning. 


The twins are just that, preteens who don't really know what they would do until they do it. 


Done. What happened to Matt. This is actually pretty good story for preteens or teens. The focus is on the children always and that's how YA stories should be. 


4.5 stars. 


Not really a review, more a note

A Scandal in Bohemia - A Sherlock Holmes Graphic Novel - Petr Kopl

The graphic novel wouldn't load. o.0


I really want to read this, so I'm going to have to track down a physical copy (sorry Kindle but I can't trust you with this). The artwork, one single portrait of Holmes, looks really good and quite distinctive. I'm interesting to see Kopl's retelling.


While the comic didn't appear, several notes and appendixes did. I found the author's thoughts on Sherlock Holmes himself, as well as the "real" relationship between him and Irene Adler well worth reading.


They almost made up for the missing comic.
