Commando by Leaving a Legacy

Life has been busy this week and I haven’t had a chance to play with this fun kit…I’m even late telling you it’s on sale. My middle son likes to play soldier so much that we got him a set of “real” BDU’s and combat boots for his birthday. I hope you don’t get sick of seeing it in my gallery as soon as I can grab it.

I found this great parent support group on facebook, it was full of people who understood some of the things I deal with concerning my special needs kids. I’ve only been on it about a week so haven’t really made any friends but saw that as a possibility. Then I made a mistake and didn’t catch when facebook tag/linked with something I typed and I got banned. No question, no opportunity to correct, no way to message and say I was sorry and would be more careful. I felt like my chewie beads had been taken away because they aren’t allowed in class. I broke a rule. I admit that. It was an accident. I’m new there and not use to being so careful not to link when I post. I obviously wasn’t trying to sell anything or promote a group, I was answering a question and thought that I was helping the other parent. I spent a couple hours feeling like crud because I am indeed guilty and the rules clearly state it. I also would have expected just a little kindness and consideration in a special needs support group and perhaps the chance to explain. It made me feel in a way I haven’t since grade school. It made me sad and defenseless.
Then I logged back on to facebook after getting myself together (yep, I cried just a little) and the first thing I saw was this article.
Providence, I relate as both the mother and child. If I don’t fit their group, it’s okay there are others.

Outlier: Rebellion (Outlier, #1)Outlier: Rebellion by Daryl Banner
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I was given a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
I am a fan of dystopian books but not really of romance. The author took his time in introducing the characters and letting me get to know them and their world. It made the beginning of the book slow but was well worth the time as I grew to understand and appreciate each of the characters, even the ones I did not like. The romance wasn’t bad and the plot wasn’t mixed into the sex scenes so I was able to skim them and not miss anything that was important to the story. There were a few characters that I wish we knew more about and I can’t wait to see what will be included in the series. I enjoyed the book very much and look forward to reading the next book, which I will gladly purchase.

There is a warning in the book description about sexual content, it includes both M/F and M/M.

What good are bunk beds if you can't use them to launch into outerspace or climb the highest mountain? Mom says I shouldn't climb, I say she shouldn't provide the heights if she doesn't want me to reach them!

 The game is called Tip It and we've never read the rules.  Peter just likes to take his time making the pieces balance while setting it up and then see how dramatically he can make it come crashing down!
