The Origami Nun by Lori Olding Blog Tour Review

Seven-year old Ruth can't speak, but that doesn't mean she can't think. She knows her birthday is going to be good as her beloved great-aunt has exciting plans for her. What she doesn't expect is a magical paper nun, an encounter with a bully who may not be what she seems or a school day to remember. Because, before her special day is over, Ruth is in for some very big surprises.

My thoughts:
I really enjoyed reading this shorter story. The author portrayed the characters well and had a great story line. I loved the encouraging words throughout the story and couldn't stop turning the pages. The story shows that even though you may see things one way, it is just YOUR perception. Everyone is dealing with different battles and how YOU react to situations determines what kind of person you will end up being. This is a terrifically inspirational and uplifting story for children and adults alike :)

Author Bio:
Lori Olding lives and works in Surrey in the UK. She and her friend (also called Ruth) share responsibility for their own origami nun and are very glad the nun has managed to feature in her special story at last. Lori is fond of blueberry muffins and lemon meringue pie.
