    Genre Middle grade contemporaryKind of like an episode of The Love Boat except you re at Christian Camp and the love interest is God.Premise Brady s mom drops him off at a Christian camp where he knows absolutely no one, including God As she s leaving, she drops a bomb on him He s not welcome to come back home, and the father who has been absent in his life since he walked out the door years ago is coming to get him at the end of the week Ouch.Theology TonsThe church camp is a great and be Genre Middle grade contemporaryKind of like an episode of The Love Boat except you re at Christian Camp and the love interest is God.Premise Brady s mom drops him off at a Christian camp where he knows absolutely no one, including God As she s leaving, she drops a bomb on him He s not welcome to come back home, and the father who has been absent in his life since he walked out the door years ago is coming to get him at the end of the week Ouch.Theology TonsThe church camp is a great and believable setting While there s a lot of theology in the book forgiveness, the difference between knowing God and having a relationship with God, trusting God when your earthly parents aren t trustworthy it s wrapped up in lessons from the camp sermons but filtered through the lens of a 13 year old boy It s a nice dose of Christianity, even evangelism, without being too in your face for young readers, although non Christians might think it s too much.Rating GGood clean fun, no language issues, no kissing, although the background to Brady s mom s motivations deals with real world adult issues that may be new territory to some younger readers.Writing Well written, well woven The story sucks you in and floats you along You really feel for the main character, Brady I shed a tear for him I m a crier though.Hear No Evil is perfect for its intended audience 8 12 year olds but a strong enough story so parents can enjoy the book along with their children.Disclosure I received a complimentary copy of this book from the Publisher in exchange for my honest review

    Mary Hamilton weaves a gripping tale right from the beginning I felt such sorrow for Brady from the very first pages, and my concern for how he was going to fix his problem kept me reading until the end I definitely recommend it to others

    Mary Hamilton has forced me to rethink the teen genre with her debut novel Hear No Evil As a writer, I have held that good writing transcends audience and that readers of all ages should appreciate good writing for what it is, not because it is directed at a specific demographic Hamilton weaves a tale of an unfortunate young man, Brady, who faces a coming of age moment at Summer Bible camp while, at the same time, coming to grips with his salvation Hamilton interweaves scriptural references Mary Hamilton has forced me to rethink the teen genre with her debut novel Hear No Evil As a writer, I have held that good writing transcends audience and that readers of all ages should appreciate good writing for what it is, not because it is directed at a specific demographic Hamilton weaves a tale of an unfortunate young man, Brady, who faces a coming of age moment at Summer Bible camp while, at the same time, coming to grips with his salvation Hamilton interweaves scriptural references at critical plot junctions to not only provide Brady with the insights he needs, but also to help the reader contextually follow the protagonist s development Helping Brady on this journey are a collection of characters from the wise minister to the camp counsellor to Brady s bunk mate and even a potential first romance.While these facets help tell the story, the book s real success comes from Hamilton s use of voice to get the reader into Brady s mind and heart as he makes his realizations and completes his journey It takes skill to write in the voice of a thirteen year old boy convincingly and Hamilton demonstrates this skill It is because of this skill that I now appreciate the teen genre.Hear No Evil is an outstanding first novel and I look forward to the next book in the series.I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for my honest review
