My Children's Book Month Feature: The Majestic Cave by Kelly Hashway

Kelly Hashway's new middle grade novel, Mystery of the Majestic Cave, is out in time to make summer reading fun! It is the continuing adventure of three kids who are trying to bring an end to the Curse of the Granville Fortune (her first book in this series). Want to know more? Look below.
Thirteen-year-old J.B. thought being cursed was bad, but finding out his first crush is going to be eaten by an octopus is more than he can handle.

My Children's Book Month Featuring Blues Bones by Rick Starkey

May is my children's book month highlighting four of the best new releases for your summer reading fun. This week's feature is for BLUES BONES by Rick Starkey.
Thirteen-year-old Rodney Becker has found the perfect cure for stage fright. Voodoo! 
Armed with the stolen finger bones of a dead blues guitar player and a mishmash of voodoo spells from the Internet, he and his best friend enter a graveyard at midnight to perform their ritual. Now, all that stands in his way of winning a local guitar competition is the power of RETURN – a side effect of the voodoo that spells disaster for Rodney. 
His cure has become a curse. How else can he explain jamming his finger so bad he can't hold a guitar pick, his part-time dad stealing his guitar, and his mom getting into an accident that could have taken her life? 
How much is Rodney willing to risk to achieve his dream of being a guitar legend?
