I was fortunate to receive an ARC (an Advance Reader Copy) of Brody Cody and thoroughly enjoyed reading it!
Although aimed at children, it was a delightful read and quite fitting for these strange times. It is the story of a young boy who was miraculously saved from an accident that killed his mother and he didn't think he wanted a new mother, as he was very happy just living with his father, eating and doing whatever he felt like. All goes well until his father meets someone who then moves into his world. He and his friends decide she is an alien and plans are made to thwart an invasion and they even reported it to the police! It is a very fanciful story and will appeal to the age group for which it is intended, but as a grandmother, I could also enjoy reading this to my grandchildren. It covered lots of issues and the ending was lovely!
Toni has shown a great deal of understanding for this age group and has written a fabulous story. She is known to me for her more mature books but shows her many skills with this book.
