_What if you could go back in time to save a life?
The rules are simple, you must be 18, you can only go back 6 months and you must never ever change the past. But that is exactly what Brooke plans to do.
This book only recently made it on to my reading list. I didn’t know much about it, but decided to give it a try. As soon as I opened it up and started reading, I knew this book was something special. In fact it was so special, that I devoured it in about four hours! I absolutely loved reading The Clay Lion. I read a lot (book blogger…duh!) and I just can’t say enough good things about the book.
The story line is very realistic and engrossing. There are no literary short cuts, story hacks or missing elements in the way the story was presented. It is evident from page one, that this book was written by a true master’s touch. The character development and portrayal was of the same high caliber writing. I was able to connect with Brooke emotionally. Due largely to the fact that all of the characters were written expertly made this book a page turner.
One of my favorite elements to this story was that the author (Amalie Jahn) was able to work in a number of life lessons useful to all ages. I loved how The Clay Lion pulled me in without using any extra noise or frivolous details we see in many YA books these days. The author did such a good job, that I think that readers from all walks of life and all ages will enjoy it. It would not surprise me if many of the readers found themselves and their outlook on life changed by the story. I would recommend this book to everyone, no matter your age or situation. It’s just a great read.
After reading, it makes perfect sense that The Clay Lion received four awards, Readers' Favorite International Book Award, Literary Classics Seal of Approval, Kindle Book Award for Young Adult (2015), and Literary Classics Gold Medal. If you liked The Giver then you will love this book. If you are just looking for something new I would start here. I can think of no other book to better introduce someone to the world of fantastic literature.
Note: I’m reading the second book in the series (Tin Men) and it’s a page turner as well.

So this has nothing to do with the book I just reviewed however I would like to let you guys know that I am going to be traveling all weekend. And due to the fact that I will probably resemble a zombie from the walking dead on Saturday due to lack of sleep; my review for Conversation Skill by Dan Blaze will be posted on Friday.
