There is a family out there Dysfuntional No one in the house is upwardly Mobile And the blame is always placed But displaced Always blamed on a person who doesn’t Admit To admit is same as saying you did that shit And you’re still dysfunctional I’m still dysfunctional We are still dysfunctional Create enemies among relatives And You weren’t there so don’t tell me What is And still you try to add insult to shame And you were never one to take the blame And blame Is always the name of the game But you don’t not accept your claim And I’m over it Done I don’t know what to say Except drama Nigga you could keep that shit for your mama I’m over it We are over it Can’t believe this is what it came to be I’m shame that I have to call yall family Family Is not defined by this situation Borders being created Because you love the separation Are you better than me??

Book Review: SHIEWO: A FANTASY FLIGHT TO ADVENTURE (Book 1 of Shiewo’s Odyssey)

I just finished reading Ciye Cho’s, Shiewo: A Fantasy Flight to Adventure.  It is for the 13 and up group, and I must say that I would definitely let my pre-teen and early teen cousins read it.  The story seemed truly youthful and vibrant; full of colorful characters, wild adventures, and dangers.  It is a good read to get the imagination going.  There are a few missed edits, but not many, so it doesn’t distract from the story.

Ciye Cho is very talented.  If you get a chance, visit her website that goes along with this book series and see what I mean.  Cho’s hands were everywhere in the creation of this series, it’s soundtrack, and it’s interactive site.  Before I received this book, I was very anxious to read it because of the website and book trailer, which I’ve included at the bottom.  So let your pre-teen/early teens delve into Shiewo’s world full of adventure and fun.  The book itself I gave 3 1/2 Stars, but with everything else that comes with it, I have to round it out to an even 4 Stars. 

 

An Overview of the Story:

The universe of Orberana is a place of great wonder and peril, a dizzying landscape filled with clouds that can talk, clockwork beings that mark their own time, and painted animals that awake in the night.

Shiewo Morose is the captain of a flying ship powered by music. She is also a determined young woman on a mission: a quest to find the Wishing Fish that created Orberana.

Sailing above the clouds, Shiewo and her crew (Erduu the bamboo, Theo the cloud, Livingston the goldfish, and Felix the painter) are headed for worlds of crazed clockwork bureaucrats, tyrannic kings, and tornado children—worlds that will test not only the crew’s bravery… but their very understanding of adventure.

Theirs is the odyssey of a lifetime…
