Reviews - What do our customers think?
A funny, sweet, coming-of-age story.  Oct 13, 2008
Saving Sailor by Renée Riva takes the reader to Indian Lake, Idaho 1968 where A.J. Degulio and her family spend every summer. A.J. loves hanging out in the canoe with Sailor, her dog, and drifting. She torments her family by speaking in a Southern accent, even though she's Italian.

Another family is spending the summer at the lake and A.J. meets her soul mate, Danny Morgan, who shares her love of star-gazing and God. But Danny's family is falling apart. His father's had an affair and Danny just knows his mom will forgive him again. A tragedy causes everyone to look at how precious life is and consider that God can change even the hardest hearts when forgiveness is offered.

Saving Sailor is a wonderful story about a girl just loving life. A.J. is funny and smart and I enjoyed her hysterical moments in catechism classes and her mother's impersonating Sophia Lauren and giving autographs to the public. What a funny, sweet, and heartwarming story.

Highly recommended.
Enchanting - We Need More Books Like This One...  Jul 2, 2008
This is the most enjoyable, happy, comforting novel I've read since I was young. A far cry from most books written today that are either about dysfunctional relationships, shallow mean-spirited friendships, or just general self-absorption. The characters are well developed and the humor is lovely. I adored the mom, Sophia, whose positive outlook is a real treat. I plan on having my 11 year-old read it as well. I hope there are many more stories coming from Ms. Riva...
Thanks, Renee!  Aug 5, 2007
Delightful. Poignant. God bless the day a stranger stopped by our "summer palace" as she called it, and left a copy of her book as a thank you! Thank YOU Renee! I'll be passing this book along to my loved ones!
Sweet Sailor  Jun 4, 2007
I loved this book. It was cleverly written with humor and lots of heart. I loved AJ and the story took me back to my own sweet childhood summers. It is a must read for those who love summer, driftin' on a lake and sharing all that is good in the world with your dog and crazy family.
Great Summer Read!  May 23, 2007
You will laugh, you will cry. This well written book will draw you in and leaving you wanting more. The main character, A.J. will add sunshine to your summer. Riva's wonderful sense of humor will have you rolling.
