The Kindling Blog Tour

I am happy to be a part of The Kindling Blog Tour today!

If you have Middle Grade kids that love to read, Braden Bell's newest novel is a great book to suggest to them (it's actually quite enjoyable for parents too).

All thirteen-year-old Conner Dell wants to do is pass pre-algebra, play lacrosse, and possibly kiss Melanie Stephens. He didn’t mean to set anyone’s gym shorts on fire or make school lunches explode. But now that the strange powers inside him have been ignited, Conner’s normal teenage life is about to go up in flames!
Several years ago if someone told me I'd be interested in books about kids and magic, I'm pretty sure I would have laughed in their face. But, during college I worked at a city library and I could no longer ignore the magical books that I frequently checked out to patrons. It didn't take long to get hooked into this exciting genre.

The Kindling is a fun story that is original and well delivered. The characters are great (quirky "teachers" and average teenagers who discover they're not average). There's action and even a bit of young love.

One of the things I liked best about The Kindling is how much fun it seemed to be for Braden Bell to write it. Visit his website for book trailers, sample chapters, how the book came to be, and more!
