The Perfect Tale!!!!
Gone. Parents, teen siblings and friends, grandparents. They are all gone, and you have no idea if they are coming back or where they went. All you know is this purple storm showed up out of nowhere and they disappeared! No more bed times, no groundings, no parents harping on you to do your homework or get a job, but also no one to tuck you in at night, clean up for you. Purple is a brilliantly written tale of just that, family members and strangers gone missing and the story of four unlikely teenagers who become friends, who unbeknownst to them are chosen for something greater. The characters are colorful and fun. Their fears are real. But there is a deeper connection between all who they encounter. All of the sudden they are thrown into a teenage-adulthood and struggling to not only find themselves but survive. I laughed, cried, gasped, and found myself holding my breath at times. The fate of the world is literally on these young teens’ shoulders! My favorite character was Ping. She had me cracking up, and I was so happy that she was able to play an important part in the story.
Grab your copy of Purple, go on…GO! You will not be disappointed, whether you are a pre-teen, teen, YA, or adult, male or female. Purple has just that right mix for every reader!
This second review is from Lisa Dunn who left a review on my USA Amazon page. Thanks, Lisa, for taking the time to post your comments…your words are hugely appreciated
I just finished this book, and I am doing a Flaming Knicker Dance…yes, it’s a Happy Flaming Knicker Dance, but only because I’m so excited to tell everyone I know to read this book!
For years I’ve seen rows and rows of hokey books promising to be a parable for the ages, and they leave you shaking your head and mad at yourself for wasting money on contrived rubbish.
Love sometimes wears a disguise, and Purple is a brilliant book showing the way to love by following the signs. The signs were obvious to me, and I’m sure that for each one it will be personal.
Even if you don’t care to find love and make the world a better place, the story is brilliant. It honestly had to have come from the mind of a wise man who has experience to share. Thank goodness he did.

Since reading this book, I have been more aware of being in tune with signs and signals that are given to all of us. I truly believe that this book is meant to be read by everyone.
