Something to Sing About by C. C. Payne


Jamie Jo's fear of bees has been not much more than an annoyance for the Morgan family — that is until the summer their church explodes. While trying to make sense of this event, Jamie Jo deals with overcoming other struggles: she fears reaching out to a new girl in the neighborhood, she worries about taking on the responsibility of a puppy, and she doesn't know why her older brother's return to town has caused tension in the family. She has to deal with all of this without going outside (where the bees live) alone!

Readers will be captivated by Jamie Jo's humor, wit, and small-town charm as she begins to see her world and her faith in a new way.

This book is the first by author C.C.Payne. It received a Starred review from the professional publication Booklist. I believe their review said "humorous, wholesome, and heartwarming." What a needed niche for today's young people. A fabulous book for grades 4-7 that speaks to fear and faith and family and friends. I'm a public school librarian and I can't keep this book on the shelf! I assure you we'll be seeing more from C.C. Payne, and I also assure you I'll be ordering more of her works for my school's shelves!

This book truly is, "something to sing about." Jamie Jo, the main character is a refreshing change from the dark, self-centered, vapid characters that are trending in children's literature these days. As I read this lovely story, I couldn't help but wish that more authors would weave faith into their tales. If you are looking for innocent vs. sophisticated, respect vs. disdain and humility vs. self-promotion in a character, this is the book for you. Both myself and my nine year-old daughter loved it. Bravo to C.C. Payne for her first foray into Children's Literature.

As a Christian Mom I loved the book. We need more books like this one. My two daughters 10 and 12 said they are sharing the book with their Sunday school classes and can't wait for another of her books to come out.
