Paradise Girl has received a B.R.A.G.Medallion. B.R.A.G. is an acronym for Book Readers Appreciation Group, an organisation that has brought together a large group of readers, both individuals and members of book clubs, located throughout the United States and in ten other countries around the globe.
Books are read by a panel of readers who award marks out of 5 for plot, characters, dialogue, style, chapters, copy editing, content & structure, formatting, cover and title. Paradise Girl received 5/5 in every category except one, making a total of 49 marks out of a possible 50 (the only 4 awarded was for the cover).
The readers said,
‘This was a very nuanced apocalyptic story. It took a deft hand to write such believable and sympathetic characters. I felt their pain and their loneliness with out being crushed by an unrelenting tragedy. I am ready for another book by this author.’
‘This was a really good story and I would most certainly tell my friends it is a book worth getting. The author has a wonderful gift for conveying the emotions of his characters and there are enough twists and turns to keep a reader up all night. Thank you for letting me read this amazing book! ‘
‘This is an excellent book well told. I enjoyed the diary format and found the dialogue witty and appropriate. The story is at times crushing but very believable. I highly recommend this book for B.R.A.G.Medallion. My only concern is its genre. Although it is about a young girl, I think it is just as interesting for adults. I wonder if it would get more attention in a broader genre.’
‘Really enjoyed this book. The ending was a surprise!’
