Delta Legend (eBook) by Kelan O'Connell

In Delta Legends by Kellan O 'Connell, Oakland teen Calvin gets into some trouble so his mom sends him to northern California to live with his great uncle.  When he gets there, his uncle puts him to work fixing up boats to keep him busy. The place he s at is a small riverside fishing town. Calvin 's experience gives him some better friends than he had previously; he also learns to make better life decisions.
As a  new reviewer, this was a great first read and I really enjoyed the process of reading and reviewing Delta Legends. It was an electrifying read and a struggle to put down. Calvin' s experience in the small town teaches him such a good lesson that I believe that many youth could use this lesson to better improve their behavior, and as a reader I enjoyed learning about the environmental problems such as the river systems in California. The book's themes are timeless; I would recommend this book to readers ten generations from now. Kellan O 'Connell did a fantastic job researching the background information as well reaching out to teens.

This is such a wonderful review! I'm honored that a new reviewer would chose Delta Legend as one of their first reads here on LitPick/Flamingnet.

Many of my reviews are by older adults who run book review blogs, so when a reviewer who's around the same age as the primary characters "gets" everything I hoped to achieve with the book - it means more to me than I can even express.

Sorry to be late in replying to this great review. My Flamingnet account is hooked to a slightly older email that I obviously haven't checked enough! But please don't equate my tardiness with a lack of gratitude for this awesome review. I couldn't be more thrilled.
