Guardians of the Garden by Theresa Pocock – Review by Gail Guerrero
I love stories that can take me to a new world and place me there with ease. I love a story that is so creative that you think the author has been to this place and is just telling you that story. To have the ability to create a world that no one has ever seen before is amazing. This story centers around a girl who is tired of being seen as strangle and a boy trying to save his sister. They have so much weight on their shoulders that the ending could be tragic. The author weaves a tell full of intense moments. and danger. To either save them or let them go. I really liked how Miriam responded to being rejected yes it hurt but now some of that weight is gone. Seth’s love for his sister is beautiful. He doesn’t give up and you can feel his pain at the thought of losing her. The fact that he has to watch his parents lose hope and yet he still believes shows how much character he truly has.
