Book Review Reviewed by Tanya Owen for Readers' Favorite

"Opening Pandora’s Box" was even better than the prequel. It was much more dramatic, and it kept me on my toes. It definitely made an impact. McCombs' characters were so well-developed in her first book that I felt I knew them. Therefore, reading about Jesse and Patrick’s murders really hit me hard. I found myself concerned about the well-being of Abby and Annette. Both girls had experienced so much heartbreak and trauma in their young lives that you just wanted to reach out and hug them. It was a nice touch seeing how McCombs showed how Abby and Annette transitioned from young, troubled girls into better-adjusted young women. This is a definite must-read book for anyone who loves dramatic stories with a happy ending.

"Opening Pandora’s Box" is a book written by Lisa A. McCombs. It is a sequel to "Raspberry Beret" that picks up where Abby hears sirens outside of her house. Something inside her told her she didn’t want to know what had happened. One night, Abby’s life was forever changed. Her best friend, Jesse, was killed by her own escaped convict father. Not only that, but Patrick was killed as well. Abby was no longer the sociable, lovable person she had once been. She was deeply depressed and withdrawn from her family and friends due to this incident. Over time, the “real” Abby starts to slowly emerge as she develops a better sense of who she is and titles her journal entries “Dear Jesse.” Toward the end of the story, she is doing much better and has grown up, ready to face the world as an adult.

MS Awareness Month: The Letter K

K is for keeping up with Jones's. 
Get rid of this philosophy RIGHT NOW. You are special. You are unique. You are a Warrior. You are a Super Star. MS does not define you. 

We have enough on our plates without worrying about without the rest of the coming and goings in our neighborhood, church, community, family. So what if Bubba got a new ski boat or Nibby Neighbor Nancy is planning - loudly - her spring cruise. I celebrate daily getting out of bed. No, I am not downplaying the excitement surrounding these happy moments in the lives of those folks we know. As MS Warriors, we sometimes need to remember that life hold more bonuses than money can buy.

This morning I am reminded that spring is on its way. Sure, I saw the news and I am well aware of the snow storm that promises to pelt our country in a few hours. I am ready. Milk in the fridge. Bread in the pantry. Flashlights battered up. But, behind that storm is spring and my favorite scent of all times: lilac. Don't ya just love t…

The N of MS.

N is for not allowing MS to win. This easy. Refer to A-M and O-Z.

As MS Warriors it is our job, our responsibility, and our mission to provide information, support, insight, and understanding to this ridiculous disease.

#WeAreStrongerThanMS

When I say we need to provide information, I am not just talking about clinical research and statistics. If you are living with MS or are close to someone with the MonSter, you have more information than can be found on the internet. YOU are the expert. YOU are the prime resource for what's what in this crazy land of MS. You experience(s) is invaluable.

Supporting the fight against MS wears many hats. Sure, you can make a monetary donation, but that is not always feasible in this tight-budget minded world. I am definitely preaching to the choir here. As a retired school teacher, I am facing quite a few unplanned expenses. No, money is not the only way, or necessarily the best way to offer assist…

This Writer's Euphoric Journey

It is November and that means National Novel Writing Month. I participate every year. As always, I am behind on my writing goal for the month: WRITE 50,000 WORDS  IN 30 DAYS. 

With only two days to go, I still need 10,000 to finish. 

So...I will see you here again on Wednesday or at the end of my journey of 50,000 words. Until then, breathe.
