My Son Loved It”

Five Star Review on Amazon By Amazon Customer

A great book for a boy or girl between the ages of 10 and 14. It tells the story of how a boy overcomes the separation of his parents (they get back together in the end) and realizes his dreams of performing well on his hockey team using the power of attraction. He imagines success and then the positive outcomes he imagines actually happen for him including his parents repairing their relationship. My son loved it. He found it so engaging he read the whole thing in about two days.
