'TIS THE SEASON

I have the neatest story to share with you today. Here is the latest b y Author Victoria Simcox. And even better, it will be a series. Enjoy.








’TIS THE SEASON


NORMA ELLIOT’S SECRET JOURNAL


BOOK 1

By Victoria Simcox



Do you know someone who thinks his or her name is horrible? If so, why do they believe this? In Author Victoria Simcox’s latest novel, ’Tis the Season (Norma Elliot’s Secret Journal Book 1) we meet 4th grader Norma Elliot, a character you won’t soon forget. Norma is not happy with her “old lady’s” name she calls it. She’s named after her dad, Norman, who really wanted a boy instead of a girl when she was born. Not a great way to begin your life. But her name is the least of Norma’s problems. Being the spunky girl that she is, Norma deals with each situation she faces in her own unique way.


One part I especially like is Norma’s journal where she writes her “true feelings” to God. A scripture is on each page to help her. She also knows that she cannot hide what she does from God. Norma is priceless, sarcastic at times, serious at times, and fun at times. Her relationship to her older sister, younger brother, and parents may remind you of your own family or families that you know. They don’t always get along with each other, but the love is there.


’TIS THE SEASON is a beautiful story about family, friendship, and following God’s will. I am so excited to see that there will be other books about Norma because I’m curious as to what she will do next. This book would be ideal for school libraries from elementary to middle school, as well as public libraries and your own personal library. Norma is a character you really should meet. You’ll never forget her. Happy Reading.

  3. Sounds relatable, as yeah, no family gets along all the time.

    1. Absolutely, Pat. It's like visiting your own family or other families you know.

  4. Nice review. I can relate to Norma: My middle name I just hated when I was growing up, and thought of it as an old lady name indeed. (my grandmother's name) I ditched as soon as I turned 18 and insisted on being called by my first name. (Elizabeth) I'm curious to see what Norma does about her name. :-)

  5. Thank you, Elizabeth. So you know how Norma feels about her name. :) Parents just don't understand, sometimes. It is a fun read and I imagine the others in the series will be just as delightful.
