I am pleased to introduce my client Kandi M. Siegel and her first book in a series titled My Summer Triumph. Kandi was kind enough to share her book with me for a review. After pointing out a few ways she could improve the novel, Kandi asked me to edit her book. It is always an honor to be asked to work on another author’s project. I know how much time and energy goes into each word and it is my desire to not just improve the work, but to help each author become the most successful writer they can be.
ABOUT THE BOOK:
Kaila’s first experience at overnight camp proved to be more of a learning experience then anything else. Through the many challenges that she had faced during the three weeks at camp, Kaila learned a lot about herself and how to triumph over defeat.
ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Kandi M. Siegel graduated from the University of Central Florida in 2006 earning a Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education, and was also certified in Special Education . She received the Editor’s Choice Award for outstanding achievement in poetry by the National Library of Poetry in 1997. She is a member of the Space Coast Writer’s Guild. Originally from Massachusetts, Kandi now resides in Florida.
This was an adorable book. The story follows the journey of Kaila on her first overnight summer camp and how she must face her fears to overcome them. The chapters were short and concise, and clearly labeled by their titles. Kaila struggles with her self-perception, which is enhanced by the taunting of several girls throughout the story. But with one true friend by her side and the cute boy she can’t keep her eyes off of, she discovers everything she needs before you read “the end”. Although this book is geared for a younger audience, there is mention of cigarettes and boyfriend/girlfriend feelings, so it is not recommended for a reader who is under 10 years old. The lessons learned and the honest relatable characters make this a fabulous summer read for any young girl.
