Finally an update….

So very sorry that I’ve not gotten my replies, story, and reviews posted yet. Last month wasn’t what I was expecting at all with one serious crisis after another, but we’re very thankful that we’re never alone, never without the Creator. That is priceless and never changing, which means we can count on that faithfulness forever. Prayers and solidarity help so much. <3

I’ve been concerned that the beautiful readers/commenters on the blog would be upset with me for not posting more and getting back to everyone. I will hopefully be posting stories, replies, reviews, etc. very very soon. :)

Love to all of you. :) :cool: <3 :)

Sometimes we feel like Harold Lloyd in this awesome scene, who did that amazing stunt himself, in ‘Safety Last’ and the important thing is to keep holding on. This pic is a teaser for Hardys Inn Danger ~

The Hardy Boys Papercutz Graphic Novel #2 Identity Theft – My Review

Hardy Boys Graphic Novel #2 Identity Theft from Papercutz   In Papercutz’s second volume of Hardy Boys graphic novels, Identity Theft, you’re going to find action, humor, the strength of family love and the importance of a person’s character. :cool:

   The book starts off in a fun way with these words by Joe “WOOOOOO HOOOOOO!” There’s some cool skydiving as Frank and Joe try to find out who’s smuggling diamonds in each town where the Trans-Continental Sky-Jumping Team performs at local high schools. Through a secret arrangement by ATAC, the brothers get to jump with the team at Bayport High School. It’s mentioned that their dad taught them how to jump out of an airplane years before – pretty cool. :cool:

   Once they discover who the guilty one or ones are, that case is wrapped up and it’s back to the usual daily activities, like going to high school. Great seeing Chet there at Bayport High. :cool:

   After catching the smugglers, the Hardy’s receive the info on their next case via a game cartridge. As you can tell by the title, it’s about identity theft – very literally. With all of the activity and connectivity with the internet in most people’s lives, there’s the danger and possibility of identity theft for anyone whose personal info is anywhere online. This mystery gives a unique and frightening spin on the ever-present threat while pointing out some important things about a person’s true identity. The love of family and importance of a person’s character are shown in the story. It also shows the fact that “cosmetic” changes/plastic surgery aren’t necessary because it’s who you are on the inside that counts – so true. As the cast of Nickelodeon’s “How to Rock” (currently seen on TeenNick) sings ~ “Only You Can Be You.” :cool: 

   The brothers help a girl who claims to be Joy Gallagher, but there’s already someone else making that same claim. Frank and Joe also help Joy’s family because, regardless of who’s telling the truth, something’s going on. Something very dangerous. Helping people is a constant and vitally important aspect of a Hardy Boys book. So the Hardys have to sort out who’s who – and survive. :cool:

   Intense scenes! I don’t want to give anything away, but I will say that parts of the mystery definitely had me on the edge of my seat! If you haven’t read it yet, you’ll see what I mean when you do. Those of you who have read it know exactly what I’m talking about!

   Fenton, Laura, and Gertrude/Trudy are in this one and are very cool. The love of family is very clear and Frank and Joe say about the great role models of their mom and dad in their upbringing. In this graphic novel you read about the switch from “Gertrude” to “Trudy” and how that came about. I thought that was pretty interesting and nicely done. The joking around with Aunt Trudy is fun and the serious moments are well-placed throughout the book. 

   This Hardy Boys Papercutz graphic novel has mysterious happenings, humor – which is alway necessary in books and real-life – and plenty of action! :D

   You can get Hardy Boys #2 Identity Theft in paperback or hardcover and at iTunes (a choice of two part apps or @ iBookstore), Amazon Kindle, B&N Nook, and many other places that sells ebooks. :) Your local library might even have the cool Hardy Boys graphic novels from Papercutz! :D
