    I am going to take a different approach to this review than normal More than tell you about the book, I want to tell you what this book did for me.I have always believed that those who have died are close by My father use to tell us all the time that when babies are smiling at nothing they are smiling at those on the other side who are watching out for us I loved that I loved the thought that I wasn t the only one watching out for my family while here on earth.This book also made me consid I am going to take a different approach to this review than normal More than tell you about the book, I want to tell you what this book did for me.I have always believed that those who have died are close by My father use to tell us all the time that when babies are smiling at nothing they are smiling at those on the other side who are watching out for us I loved that I loved the thought that I wasn t the only one watching out for my family while here on earth.This book also made me consider how much harder it would be for me to loose someone close to me, if I believed that, that was it This little book showed me that no matter how long someone has been gone they are always right here with me.This is a good book to read with someone who has lost someone recently or is going to be loosing someone Help them understand that even though they are not here, and it hurts, they are really never gone I know it sounds so cliche, but it s so true We can always carry those we love with us in our hearts, minds, and actions It s such a calming feeling.This is such a sweet story about a girl trying so hard to help her father realize that life doesn t have to be as hard as he is making it out to be, if he would just accept that there is help from the other side

    Just finished Never That Far, and what a wonderful book it was I would classify it as a fantasy middle grade novel, but that might give you the wrong idea There are ghosts, but no hauntings The story is magical, but not filled with magic This may seem like a contradiction, but if you look beyond the constraints of genre, you ll discover a story about the importance of family, redemption, and guiding love from beyond the grave.Twelve year old Libby has the Sight, but never knew about her gift Just finished Never That Far, and what a wonderful book it was I would classify it as a fantasy middle grade novel, but that might give you the wrong idea There are ghosts, but no hauntings The story is magical, but not filled with magic This may seem like a contradiction, but if you look beyond the constraints of genre, you ll discover a story about the importance of family, redemption, and guiding love from beyond the grave.Twelve year old Libby has the Sight, but never knew about her gift until see saw her recently departed Grampa This brings her comfort when her heart is near breaking The same cannot be said of her father He has turned a blind eye to his sight all his life and all of Libby s, too Instead of comfort, he sees only despair To save him, Grampa sends Libby on a quest It takes her over water, requires the aid of atheists, jeopardizes her life, and puts her at odds with her father before she can find her Grampa s treasure Carol writes with such a strong voice I loved every page of this book and read it in one sitting I amthan awed at her ability to capture emotions so keenly Her characters felt real to me Libby was strong and independent, yet still vulnerable Carol was able to write her this way without any internal inconsistencies or cheats She s had years of experience honing her craft and studying people For example, her Baptist minister was spot on Though annoying to Libby, the minister was a woman both anxious to heal people that she considered of her flock while also desperately wanting a place in that family Thewe encountered her, theI loved her All the side characters were written with such care and depth Libby was never upstaged, however Her drive and desire to solve her Grampa s mystery pulled her forward through the story regardless of who got in her way It was a very enjoyable read Beautifully written Paced perfectly Highly recommended

    I found this book to be a really good read It is written well for the younger readers Although, the subject matter that this book deals with is better read for the mature young audience or at least read as a family book This way parents can help explain death Personally, I don t really believe in an afterlife other than heaven So, depending on your religion and beliefs, you will have to explain about the afterlife Some do believe in sight I liked Libby a lot She was so open and willing I found this book to be a really good read It is written well for the younger readers Although, the subject matter that this book deals with is better read for the mature young audience or at least read as a family book This way parents can help explain death Personally, I don t really believe in an afterlife other than heaven So, depending on your religion and beliefs, you will have to explain about the afterlife Some do believe in sight I liked Libby a lot She was so open and willing to accept the gift of sight She didn t question the fact that she could see and communicate with her dead grandpa They had good conversations I felt like I really got to know Libby and her family What I did like the most is that this book featured Libby as the one to help heal her father and so him it is ok to be sad but also to rejoice in his memories of his father Never That Far is a charming, sweet read

    I enjoyed this book I liked Libby She s just a young girl and things are hard when her grandpa dies She had a dad, but her grandpa was the one that did everything with her and for her I was just as surprised as she was when he started visiting her at night She was able to hug him and be near him and he gave her an assignment Find what he d left for her near the lake.Finding what he d left for her becomes all consuming for Libby She tries to tell those around her about her grandpa s visit I enjoyed this book I liked Libby She s just a young girl and things are hard when her grandpa dies She had a dad, but her grandpa was the one that did everything with her and for her I was just as surprised as she was when he started visiting her at night She was able to hug him and be near him and he gave her an assignment Find what he d left for her near the lake.Finding what he d left for her becomes all consuming for Libby She tries to tell those around her about her grandpa s visit, but no one believes her It doesn t matter to her what her dad thinks or what her friends Bobby and Martha think She knows that she has to find it and she has to find it before school starts.Libby s trying to find her treasure gets her into all kinds of trouble Her dad gets mad at her She maybe even loses a friend and her life I loved the way the author wrote the whole story through Libby s eyes Libby never really sees the danger she s in The plot of this one is full of great things, adventure, ghostly appearances, danger, and good friends It s a great middle grade book that the kids in your life will love

    Never That Far is a very sweet and heart warming story I loved this book I was even brought to tears at the end Libby is wonderfully stubborn and I loved her inner voice Her grandfather just died leaving a hole in her family Her Daddy then retreats to sadness and denial Libby is visited by her Grampa telling her she has the Sight Now she needs to convince her daddy of the family gift before it s too late.

  7. Bonnie Bonnie says:

    This was a very interesting read I felt like it was a good way to show children how deal with the death of a loved one, however, I had a hard time with the way the characters spoke It could have been because I was tired, but it felt like I had to translate in my head what they were saying at times It is a good, clean read that most people would love.

    This review and manycan be found on my blog Feed Your Fiction AddictionThis book shows how Libby navigates the loss of her grandfather Libby has to process her pain, but she s helped by the fact that she has the Sight and can still talk to her grandpa after he dies But her father, on the other hand, refuses to believe in the ability to see the dead He grieves the loss of his father and his wife and mother and pulls away from Libby The story really becomesabout Libby reaching o This review and manycan be found on my blog Feed Your Fiction AddictionThis book shows how Libby navigates the loss of her grandfather Libby has to process her pain, but she s helped by the fact that she has the Sight and can still talk to her grandpa after he dies But her father, on the other hand, refuses to believe in the ability to see the dead He grieves the loss of his father and his wife and mother and pulls away from Libby The story really becomesabout Libby reaching out to her father and closing the gap between them The story is sweet, and I loved the paranormal aspect always a bonus with me.My favorite element of the book is the unique voice The Libby is a twelve year old girl in rural Florida in the 60 s, I believe , and her speech and inner dialogue reflect that beautifully I really enjoyed reading a book in this voice, but some people might be put off by the speech patterns since they re different from the way most of us talk For me, it was a definite bonus, though.This was a super quick read, with many lines that I wanted to read again and again Very sweet I highly recommend it
