Alone Yet Not Alone - GIVEAWAY

Author Tracy Leininger Craven brings to life a true story from her own family history in this dramatic novelization for readers age 8 and up.  Alone Yet Not Alone: Their faith became their freedom from ZonderKids is available in paperback ($9.99) and Kindle ($6.64) versions.  

Brianna, age 13, read the book first.  Here's what she had to say:  "It was a very good book!  I liked the way that she was so determined to get back out, even though she knew what the risk was.  I can't wait for the movie to come out!"  

Wait, movie?  Yes!  Movie!
The movie based on the book is being released September 27.  Click here to see a behind the scenes look at the film and find out if it's coming to a city near you!  I found out we have to wait until February for it to come here.  

Eli, age 11, was my second reviewer.  Eli says, "I thought it was a really good story.  My favorite part was their escape because it was really exciting and it was amazing that they survived that.  It looks like it will make a really good movie."  

With such resounding endorsements, I read the book myself.  I have to admit, I'm looking forward to the movie, too.  Knowing that this is based on a true story just makes it all the more fascinating.  Two sisters, kidnapped by Indians in 1755, who not only escape, but live to tell about it?  Amazing.  I have to admit, I will be bringing Kleenex when I see the movie, as I cried just reading the book.  

Would you like to WIN a copy of this book??
I'm authorized to give away a brand new copy of this 148 page paperback book with 8 pages of film photos.

    1. Sorry saw I was supposed to post the last movie I saw. It was the Cruds. Terrible rotten movie that Em wanted to see.

  3. The last movie I saw in theaters was Monsters University, which was okay.

  4. The last movie I saw was Percy Jackson and the Sea of Monsters.

  5. I last saw Pacific Rim! I loved this book when I read it years ago. Did you know that the book, I Am Regina, is the other sister in the story? It is also a good book too.


    1. I didn't know that! I'll have to see if I can get it from the library, thank you.

  6. It has been a long time since I saw a movie. I'm guessing it was The Help.

  7. We love that book, can't wait to see the movie..
    So great to have good movies nowadays.

  8. I believe it was Voyage of the Dawn Treader. I know...I am a busy mama and not enough good movies for me to take the time to see.

  9. The last one I saw was Courageous, I think. Not much to choose from in the theater so it would be nice to have another decent movie again!
