The Queen’s shadow learns that there’s more to her existence than being a royal follower. Check out Kidzworld’s book review and summary of Shadow, a historical fiction book by Jenny Moss.


The Prophecy

It began with a prophecy: the Queen will die before her 16th birthday. Shadow is an orphan girl, whose whole life is centered around the Queen. She is her follower, hence the name Shadow. The royal subjects hoped that whatever force planned to kill the Queen would mistakenly kill Shadow instead.


The Escape

When the death toll rings, Shadow is very much alive. She and Sir Kenway—a young knight—make a hasty retreat from the castle. And for the first time in her life, Shadow discovers what lies beyond the royal boundaries. But why is she following Sir Kenway? She should escape, run as far away as she can so that no one accuses her of murder. But something about this handsome knight keeps her spellbound.


The Truth

During their travels through the kingdom, Shadow meets someone who will change her entire life. This person holds the secret to her existence: where she came from, and why she became the Queen’s shadow in the first place.


The Bottom Line

Shadow by Jenny Moss will keep your eyes glued to every page. It’s a terrific historical novel for teens, the kind that will captivate you even if historical fiction isn’t really your thing. The plot is energetic and has a nice flow. Best of all, it combines magic, tragedy, revelations and, of course, love. You won’t be able to put this book down.

Tunnels are used for high profile items or individuals. If you're shipping hundreds of millions worth of contraband over the border every month, or are smuggling in wanted criminals/terrorists, then you dig a tunnel. And while there is much more to do than build a wall in order to stop the flow of contraband, a border wall would curb the mass majority of illegal immigrants flowing into the United States. .."Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances."It's not prohibiting the free exercise of Islam to ban Muslim immigration. The Muslims who would be banned would not be in our country, and thus our Constitution would not apply to them. Essentially, it would prohibit the exercise of their religion about as much as it would prohibit the exercise of any other non-American. Now, if we were to deport Muslims simply for being Muslim, then that would violate their right to free exercise. I figured this was where I was flawed. Congratulations, you win. Would you like a cookie? "AlphaT" wrote:Yes, I saw that meme too. Let's just agree that there's a difference between the head of an international real estate conglomerate worth over 10 billion dollars....and Yeezy. But why would I disagree? Maybe both Trump and West have egos bigger than their mansions, but at least Donald knows what he's doing. Kanye's just a bonehead.

His wholesale campaign is a joke. Is it really not that obvious? I don't even think he is qualified to be president. I think it's just a distraction.
