Good morning, so its been a while since I have written or blog on this book blog. It seems like it anyway. And here it is August, where has this year gone to. I hope everyone is having a great week. What’s everyone reading? I have started Don’t Blink by L.G. Davis. So far I am loving it. Well now on to one of many reviews that I am behind in.
A close-knit group of five 12-year old girls find a way to escape the encircling barrier that protects their community. Lilia tells their story as they make discoveries along a journey into “the outside”.
Using the tenacity and skills that enabled them to persuade The Elders that they should be allowed to do a task hitherto reserved for boys, they overcome doubts and fears as they encounter things they have never seen, nor even dreamed of.
They are driven partly by the ambition of one member of the group. Ultimately, this will take the reader to consider the emotions of children on the cusp of adulthood and responsibility.
Set at an indeterminate time in the future, the history of these girls and their families is as much a puzzle to the reader as it is to Lilia and her friends. You will have to make your own conclusions…

Simon is a new author, an independent writer, who picked up his pen / began typing once the confidence to do so was given him by his closest ally (she knows who she is). He currently has 5 other stories quietly slumbering in their tiny storage receptacles along the periphery of his imagination, plus plenty of others he does not even know exist yet.
I would like to thank Simon Henry for an ARC copy of this book for an honest review.
Really interesting story – I loved how it developed and how the group worked things out before making decisions and taking action. It was interesting to learn how these girls and their family lived on a daily basis. The characters seemed very real and the adventure was interesting, gripping and fun even when I thought it could lead them into trouble. There were times that I thought I was on the adventure with the girl’s, as I wanted to know more of what they would find and why it was hidden. I also loved how the girls where the first girls to help with cuttings. I found this author and his book on one of the Facebook book pages I belong to and I am glad that I did. I will be looking out for other books from this author in the future. This was a great read and I highly recommend it. I am giving this a 5 star rating.
Happy Reading and enjoy the rest of your week!
