    Reviewed by Leslie Granier for Reader Views (9/08) From the Xlibris version (2007)... “Introducing...” consists of several short stories focusing on twins Jake and Jade who live on a ranch in Montana. Jake was injured by a bull in 2000 and as a result has been left mute. He also now suffers from seizures. Many of the stories focus on the difficulties he now faces and his efforts to keep active and involved in running the ranch. Also highlighted is the special “twin bond” they share and how Jade eventually learns that she must let Jake go so he can make it on his own. This is a very inspirational story. Despite many health-related setbacks, Jake continued to persevere to be successful. The unconditional love and support from his family and friends was heartwarming. Jake was treated as any other individual, which teaches an important lesson. Everyone has value and can contribute to society. This book will help those who spend time around people with disabilities. It can also teach young... More > people that everyone has his own talents and those who are different still deserve to be respected. My favorite story was the one entitled “Construction.” The author skillfully demonstrates the contrasts of a project under construction. She reminds the reader that the beginning phases of a project involve breaking up or tearing down what currently exists. However, at its completion, something beautiful arises to replace the ugliness that had been. This is an excellent comparison to the recovery of an individual who has experienced a traumatic event and has risen up to overcome its obstacles. I did have some slight difficulties with this story. Although it is set in modern times (the years 2000-2008); for some reason the descriptions and lifestyle made me think it was set in the early 1900s. Also, more editing should be done. There were several spelling errors and uses of the wrong word (especially there and their). Lastly, the author, at times, goes overboard on the use of alliteration. “Introducing...” will appeal to both males and females. It can help teach people about the effects of seizures and other head injuries and promote an understanding of the difficulties people who experience these conditions face. It will leave the reader feeling inspired and thankful for the blessings that are present in his or her own life. Leslie Granier *2017: Book, for lulu-version, is now updated for errors...< Less
