Product Description

Moving to a new town, Sadie thought that things would be great. But with the division between bear hunters and researchers and her dad's job mediating between the two, getting along at school isn't easy. Sadie's art instructor encourages her to explore her beliefs and express herself through her sketchbook, and things start to improve after she befriends a kind girl from school and a researcher's son-but she can't stop worrying about the bears. Through it all, Sadie must discover what it means to have faith when you don't have all the answers.

Author Bio

Naomi Kinsman has always dreamed of plunging into a fiction world, like Lucy does in Voyage of the Dawn Treader. In Naomi’s first career, acting and directing for the theater, this dream was inches from her reach. But writing has made the dream possible, and now Naomi regularly slips into book worlds and shares her adventures through her company, Society of Young Inklings, dedicated to empowering young writers across the country. Naomi is the author of the 2009 Moonbeam Gold Medal winner, Spilled Ink, and she has written and directed over 50 plays for young audiences. She lives in Northern California with her husband and identically colored pets: a tuxedo cat and a Portuguese water dog.

Shades of Truth by Naomi Kinsman is a great story for any girl, but especially those between 10 and 16 years of age. Sadie Douglas, formerly of California, has just made the move all the way across the country to Michigan because of her mother's failing health. She learns quickly that the two states could not be more different.


Sadie is a normal 12-year-old girl. She loves her West Coast friends, and misses them dearly. Her mother has a severe sleeping disorder, so in order to help her heal, her family has moved from a big city in California to the tiny town of Owl Creek, Michigan. Her Dad has been given a job as a mediator among the local bear hunters, local bear watchers and preservationists, and representatives from the Department of Natural Resources; this puts him at odds with most of the community who view him as a threat. Very quickly, their hatred travels from him to Sadie. She is trying to make new friends at school, but, at least at first, everyone deems her trouble and wants nothing to do with her. Eventually, Sadie begins to make friends, only to find out that some of them have been lying to her. Not knowing what to believe, Sadie finds herself turning to God.


The author does a terrific job of bringing God into the picture in a way that is easy to understand and that shows teen girls what a relationship with God can really be like -- not a scary, abstract thing. Sadie learns to follow the command in Psalm 55:22, "Cast your cares on the Lord and he will sustain you; he will never let the righteous fall." Through her growth in Christ, Sadie is able to handle the problems that her father’s new job is causing her family. The structure of her family, and its problems, are slightly exaggerated, but can still be taken as realistic.

This is the kind of book teen girls can read, recommend to or pass along to friends, and spend time talking about. - Claire Hadley, www.ChristianBookPreviews.com
