learned from her beloved mother.GOLDELINE is an unexpected, dark, magical read that I couldn t put down Jimmy Cajoleas writes with stunning prose that wraps you up in a blanket made of old fairy tales and spells From the first chapter, I found myself getting comfortable in my chair and settling in for a long reading session This is exactly the kind of magical, fantasy middle grade story that I love to find What makes this story so wonderful, beyond the great writing, are the themes finding your own family, learning to be a friend, connecting to your past, and discovering the everyday magic Goldeline is an easily lovable character, and you hope for the best for her the entire journey She has an incredible spirit that leaps off the page, and readers shouldn t be surprised to feel than a little sad when her story is concluded The Preacher makes a scary, if not surprising, villain His rhetoric is frighteningly familiar, which is perhaps what is most scary about him He is the kind of villain you can find in real life, not just in a story Overall, Jimmy Cajoleas has become an auto buy author for me after reading GOLDELINE This story is brimming with magic, excitement, and adventure

will never be ashamed of picking up a book that is not withing my age genre and I will never regret reading a story Or that is what I thought until I picked this up I am most definitely not ashamed I read it, but I regret it with a passion Goldeline is a middle grade novel that is described as having magical undercurrents, a creepy forest where strange things happen, beautiful friendships and a happy ending for the main character, and the synopsis could not be wrong about it I was extremely disappointed to find out this is basically a story about hatred fueled by religious fanaticism while I am not opposed to the idea of reading about this subject matter, I really was not expecting it since the description hinted to nothing of the sort seriously, look it up on and was not expecting the trainwreck of ideas that ensued I wanted magic I wanted fantastical elements set in a whimsical background, but instead, I got to read about a delusional priest going around condemning people for being different trigger warning for LGBT hate crimes and an eleven year old girl who kept circling around the same thoughts over and over.Goldeline is a short two hundred and forty six pages and I kid you not when I say I actually put it off by watching a couple movies Now, if you know me you know it s strange for me to do that, which means I was not really enjoying it.I, however, loved Goldeline and her tough but loyal nature her talk of magic and memories of her mother made the experience a little bit bearable although I do wish the author had explained the magical element.Also, this is not something I would recommend to any child I know seeing as how I don t consider it a children s book it s dark and sad and honestly, had my blood boiling with anger And the ending It was so anticlimactic.I hope you enjoy this if you plan on reading it but please keep in mind everything I just mentioned I am giving this 2 5 stars flag 1 likeLike see review Sep 03, 2017 Cassie James rated

range was 10 considering the themes present There was a decent amount of violence and death, as well as some spooky scenes The MC, Goldeline, really went through a lot of traumatic stuff I find that it can be difficult to find books with young MCs that aren t written in an infantile way, but the author pulls off Goldeline s inner voice wonderfully The narration is naive and childlike without becoming unreadable The relationships between the characters were great, and there was even a M M couple, which was nice to see.Overall, I thought Goldeline was a nice read and would recommend it to

of the most brilliant things I ve read for its target age bracket, and perhaps the only Christian influenced fiction that never felt like a thinly disguised sermon or a lukewarm justification It seemed like an honest look at the flaws and strengths of faith, and it was a stronger defense of it for its honesty It was like all of the level headed, compassionate Christians I know the ones just

Cajoleas is a story of found family, magic, and memory It is a middle grade novel I would have adored as a child, and one I devoured as an adult If you ve been sitting on this, I urge you to read it immediately.Our protagonist is Goldeline, a girl who lives with a group of bandits hiding in the woods that surround a small town When Goldeline finds a young boy hiding fear during a raid, she helps him, hiding him in the woods This is dangerous, a bad idea to be sure, and one with extensive repercussions Now she is being hunted by the same man who killed her mother, a witch and healer But the magic The Preacher is so determined to stamp out may be the very thing that will save her.This is a book about a lot of things magic, family, revenge, good versus evil, and the murky space in between But mostly it is a book about Goldeline, a girl who has watched her mother s murder and who is still running, hiding, from a man who will never stop hunting her It is told from Goldeline s point of view in first person present tense narration that brings a sense of urgency and immediacy to the narrative.The magic in this book isn t the sort of all powerful wizardry of high fantasy It is a slow, creeping thing, the sort of magic that is caught out of the corner of your eye or found in woods that are too deep and too old This is fairy tale magic in the truest of senses Moreover, it is seen through the eyes of a child Magic is something unexplained, a thing that was never quite taught to Goldeline, but something which surrounds Goldeline and is a very important part of her being.Yet, magic is also the very thing that haunts her It is because of her mother, her mother s magic, and her own magic that she is being hunted by The Preacher This is an important concept at the core of this novel The dual nature of thing and the way the same thing can be viewed so incredibly differently through different eyes or at different points in one s life is at the very heart of this story Magic can both be a saving, healing force and something that is feared and despised The inn Gruff tells Goldeline stories about is both a fantastical, wonderful place where she will always be fed, warm, and happy, but also is just another inn The forest is a safe place that provides both food and shelter, but it is also a place filled with potential hazards, unfriendly magic, and people harboring selfish motives.There is much discussion here about family and good versus evil Unlike many other middle grade stories, this isn t always a black versus white issue The lines aren t clear cut, instead being a murky gray mess The Preacher, of course, is a dark, evil man The bandits, on the other hand, are people on whom we must cast our own judgement To Goldeline, they are her family, her saviors the only ones who bothered to care for her and take her in when her entire world was shattered To Tommy, they are cold, cruel, and villainous the people who attacked him and left those he was traveling with for dead Both of these views are true So what are they Good Evil Simply human Goldeline by Jimmy Cajoleas is at once a story perfect for middle grade readers, and one that isn t afraid to question and make a reader think It s a story people of all ages can enjoy And it is one I wholeheartedly encourage you to read.This review and can be found at Looking Glass Reads flag Like

along on her journey of discovery, her unforeseen effort to find her place in a big, scary world.I open my mouth and taste the wild free drops of the rain They splash on my nose and I laugh and hum one of Momma s songs, the nothingsong, just me and the owls and bats and all the hidden creatures in the night I know there s a road outside of town, and past that some woods, dark and lovely, and I don t know but maybe there is a light for me to follow, a candle stuck in a window somewhere, calling me home flag Like see review Nov 27, 2017 Sarah rated it liked it review of another edition

    1. So, SO good, one of the better middle grade novels I read this year, and then a very messy final chapter lowkey ruined it It ain t salvation if it means I have to belong to you This is a story about prejudice and exclusion, all disguised as a middle grade magical realism novel It s all metaphorical but it will be perfectly easy for children to consume There s an interesting thread here about how religion can be a cover for hate, complete with a preacher and a discriminated against pair o [...]


    2. This is an odd book really of a dark fairy tale for adults than a middle grade book It strikes me as a cross between Neil Gaiman s The Ocean at the End of the Lane and the movie Night of the Hunter The prose is eerie and bewitching, and I enjoyed it, but I have a hard time imagining the child I would recommend this book to.


    3. This book actually reminded me about Adolf Hitler, a notorious dictator It was said that Hitler was very good with words and was one of the most talented orators in history In the book Goldeline, the antagonist is The Preacher, a man who wants to cleanse anyone who s different, and accused Goldeline s mother of being a witch He burned her mother, and now he wants to kill Goldeline too The Preacher convinced and bewitched the Townies people living in the town of Templeton using his speeches This [...]


    4. 3.5 stars This was really quite good Fast paced, inspired by various fairy tales, lots of overt, well intended religious messages not hidden or disguised by author , and a strong, wild protagonist who never quite settles down into ever after Really beaitiful writing and imagery, strong moral message about standing up for friends, being brave, but also being safe.

Goldeline remembers the day her mother died in excruciating detail and knows it is not something she will ever forget She takes comfort in the life she has, thanks to Gruff, who decided to save her before the Preacher and townies got to her Goldeline travels with Gruff and his bandits from camp to camp in a forest that is said to be haunted by wicked spirits and while she has accepted the life they lead, she wishes she had a permanent place to call home.But her life is uprooted when the Preach G [...]
