Running the Maze
Donald A. Davis
In the aftermath of great floods, a doctor on a relief mission in northeastern Pakistan discovers the remains of a collapsed bridge that reminds him of a bridge near his childhood home in Ohio.Ã¿He snaps a cellphone picture and sends it to his sister-just before his entire team is slaughtered.
His sister is Beth Ledford, a Coast Guard sniper, who suspects that the answer to the mystery of her brother's deathÃ¿is in that cellphone picture.Ã¿ No one believes her until she finds Kyle Swanson, once the top sniper in the Marine Corps and now the key member of a secret special operations team known as Task Force Trident. When Kyle takes Beth into Pakistan to investigate, they find the true secret behind the mass murder-what may be the last, best hope of victory by al-Qaeda and the Taliban over allied forces.
Now theÃ¿two snipers have their sights set on one man, an American diplomat who has become the biggest obstacle to victory in the war on terror.Ã¿ The only question is: which of them gets to pull the trigger?
This book is about how happy it made a little girl when her mom bought her a pair of tap dancing shoes while on a shopping trip at the mall. It tells about some fun filled exciting experiences both boys and girls may have with a pair of tap dancing shoes. The illustrator used Chesley's original artwork ideas as well as his/her own in the illustrations. The last two illustrations in her book are of dancewear used in her first dance recital.
As Chesley's mother, I like this book because it allows children to see what they can do too by putting forth the effort to do their best whatever the task, and not take shortcuts or take the easy way out all the time, especially in their reading and writing at school. I hope it will give students the confidence to persevere in their goals/dreams no matter what others do or say or how difficult it may get at times. This is also a fun and exciting book.
Chesley wrote this story in class one day about something she enjoyed doing, taking tap dancing lessons.
