Book Reviews: Flight of the Sparrows and His Eyes

Flight of the Sparrows by Laura Baumbach

Read by: Anna/Copley Teen Room

This was an awesome book about a British teenage boy who’s on his own, looking for his father, by becoming a computer hacker. But when he and his friends steal important government files, they get more than they bargained for. Special Ops from the American Army show up to arrest them along with the British MI5 who want more than to simply arrest them. This is the heart wrenching and action packed story of how one teen finally meets his real father and claims a new family among military veterans, even as MI5 are still tracking him down, wanting him dead for the information he knows. Definitely a don’t miss novel! I loved it. Once I got started, I couldn’t put it down to save my life. I highly recommend it.

His Eyes by Renee Carter

This was a short, sweet, romance novel. Again, another book I couldn’t put down. Amy is a down to earth girl, about to graduate high school, and needing money to be able to attend her dream college. How she gets that money, is the interesting part. She’s hired to babysit a blind teenager from a very preppy school filled with rich kids. Only this kid, Tristan, newly blind from a show jumping accident, doesn’t want anything to do with anyone. Will he come around before it’s too late? Or will his ex-girlfriend, who doesn’t know he’s blind, and who’s intent on using him to get her on the cover of People Magazine, grab him up before Amy can get through to him? If you love romance novels, check this one out. A fast paced book, you won’t be able to put down.
