Missy Tippens book-An Unlikely Family

I'm on chapter 4 of this book. I'm totally enjoying it. Missy has great voices for each of her characters so far. One thing I related to was the male character. He's a lot like someone I know :-) It's really cool to see these characters so like real people. I love how uncomfortable Michael is in the situation. His niece is rebelling while he cannot figure out how to solve the problem as her guardian. For a guy who knows how to solve problems, this is a perfect conflict-a problem he can't solve.

Then there is an unusual gal with a penchant for saving rebellious teens.

Missy, I'm so proud of you!

Everybody else, pick this one up!



  1. Thanks so much, Angie! I'm so glad you're enjoying it!

    I've heard of two Walmart sightings, so I'm looking forward to making a trip with my camera to get a photo. This is all so exciting!!!

    Missy :)

  2. I check my WallyWorld yesterday. It hasn't hit there yet. I still haven't read it, but it's at the top of my TBR pile :-)

  3. Congratulations Missy! I know you are just floating on air! This must be so exciting! I'll have to check this out!


  4. Lindi, I'm glad you liked it, because you had to read all the many versions about ten times each. LOL (She's my crit partner for those who don't know.)

    Thanks for looking at Walyworld, Mindy. Maybe I'll call before dragging my family and camera in there. :)

    And thanks, Kim! It's been exciting and a bit scary. I have my first book signing Sunday, and I'm nervous! :)

  5. Angie,
    Glad you posted about Missy's book. I read it during lunch today (Uh, when I was supposed to be judging a contest - oops) and I laughed out loud at the part where Michael's peeping through Josie's window and the cops catch him! My lunch was over by then, but I walked back into the building grinning.

    So nice to have a good novel to give a lift to the day :)

    Love ya, Missy. And I enjoyed your NovelJourney interview. Woo-Hoo!

  6. Thanks, Christy!! I feel honored to have been part of your lunch hour! :)


  7. I was laughing at that part too, Christy. I was sneaking in peek reads while quizing Celina on her spelling words - until she made me feel guilty.

  8. Don't you love how kids (and husbands) can make us feel guilty when our attention turns to reading, or even writing? :)
