Sherrill S. Cannon –
Captain Fin, is a work of young adult fiction by author Amanda M. Thrasher, adapted from a screenplay by Kevin James O’Neill. I found this a delightful story from start to finish, and not at all only for Y/A! I’m recommending it to all my friends! The story opens with a lot of charming dialogue, painting pictures in one’s head of a young 5-year old daughter playing bedtime pirate games with her father while her Mom is secretly sitting outside the door enjoying the escapades. What happens to this joyful family is slowly revealed in the twists of fate that lead to sorrow, and finally to resolution. The conversations throughout this book are refreshingly contemporary, and accurate; and the underlying theme of family love and developing friendship continues throughout. I have enjoyed and admired this author for a long time, and am so impressed with this latest release. 6-stars!!!
This is a beautifully written story of a child’s happiness and precious memories that get blurred over time by secrets, lies and spiraling events. A family broken by betrayal. This is an interesting story with unexpected moments and even a giggle at the end.
The story is well thought out and presented in Captain Fin. Ms. Thrasher does a wonderful job capturing and conveying the characters’ emotions, enabling the reader to easily become engaged. The detail and skillful delivery of thoughts and events throughout the book is very well done and right on point. Ms. Thrasher’s ability to tap in to the humanity of her characters and channel that onto the pages make this book well worth reading.
I definitely recommend this one!
You have to buy this book and experience Amanda’s writing! She is so good about making you feel what her characters feel. It’s like you are right there next to them experiencing everything they’re going through. The level of detail Amanda provides really helps the story come to life. I ordered this book as soon as it was available, took it with me on vacation a couple of days after I received it, I couldn’t put it down! It was a wonderful trip to and cruise around Europe…probably one of the best vacations I’ve ever been on…but every time I had a free moment all I wanted to do was read this book! I just had to find out what was going to happen next. Seriously, do yourself a favor and get it as soon as possible!
