Admittedly, I have always been a fan of tween fiction…can’t get enough of it. Mary Hamilton’s debut book, Hear No Evil, didn’t fail to keep me entertained. The book begins with poor Brady McCaul being left at church camp where he knows absolutely no one. And to make matters worse his mother informs him that she no longer wants him living with her and her new husband and won’t be returning for him. His estranged father will pick him up at the end of the week. The book deals with bullying, having a handicap, pre-teen crushes and how God is with you during all the storms of life. Mom’s reason for leaving him isn’t revealed until the very end, leaving the reader in suspense through the entire novel. I have been to church camps in east Texas and Mary’s descriptions of the smells, sights and sounds were spot on. In conclusion, I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a good story about trusting God when there’s no one else you can trust.
Hear No Evil will be available on November 5, 2013
