Remembrance by Carolyn Twede Frank

Extraordinary New YA Series

YA speculative fiction doesn’t have to be about things dark and depressing. Travel with 15 year old Josh Sawyer through books and walk in the shoes of historical giants like George Washington, Galileo, and George Frideric Handel, and join Josh’s quest to find out if God is really there.

Historical fiction author, Carolyn Twede Frank has spent years in the creation of this unique YA series that takes teens, or any age, on adventures inside books, as well as in the halls of Claremont High School, She not only entertains the reader, but uplifts them as her main character searches for the meaning of life.

In the third book in the series, Remembrance, Josh again is faced with a situation that requires him to stand up against injustice. This time the Hallelujah Chorus has been banned from his school’s Christmas Gala—which has been renamed a “Holiday Gala.” At first he is reluctant to lead the fight. But then everywhere he looks it seems Christmas is about anything but Christ. He realizes he’s just as guilty as the next person when it comes to forgetting whose birthday they’re celebrating. He also realizes he knows very little about Jesus. The more he learns, the more he knows he must stand up for the Hallelujah Chorus. When he book travels through the Christmas story and some of the miracles of Jesus in the New Testament, he feels Christ’s love and is convinced more than ever how important it is that he, and everyone around him remembers Christ, not just at Christmas, but always.

This story, however, is not just about Christmas. Introduced in the book is the zany character of a kid named Zane, who not only acts and dresses strange, but his past holds a mystery that Josh and his friends unravel as they befriend him. And the budding romance between him and the girl named Ester Josh met at the beginning of the series, struggles to survive while Josh fights for a cause that for some strange reason Ester seems to be against.

All in all it is a fun, inspiring read for ages 12 on up, and released just in time for the 2016 Christmas season.
