Please try again later. Fighting for summer fun and freedom from bullies, Ester and her friends declare war on the tyrannical neighbors who are ruining summer vacation. Ester and her pals plan to put an end to the antics of the name-calling, vandalizing, lying, plain old mean Thrashers. From their hideouts on a vacant lot, and with the help of water balloons, mud, and plenty of rotten food, they don't aim to quit until victory is theirs. Will summer be saved? Will the bullies be stopped? The War on State Street is an entertaining and inspiring tale of simpler times - of protecting bicycles and tree houses and homemade tepees - of fighting for freedom from bullies and the right to have fun.

In the typical sword and stone type story there is a young boy who born in obscurity and is usually orphaned, then makes a discovery about themselves and saves the world.
Well while Lucasse's position fits the mold his actions do not.
He is self centered and only is interested in impressing girls that he deems worthy. Instead of saving the world from a mysterious villain, he curses it, but fortunately for Lucasse he ends up with a group of friends sort of who stay with him until the end.
Ms Linam develops a fun light story with an interesting cast. She also teaches you how to get blood from a turnip and that you should always keep a calculus book handy for defense. I would recommend this book for all those who enjoy the swords-and-horses fantasies but want something a bit different. With each page, the interest, tension, and mystery build.
This is an enjoyable twist on the traditional save-the-world fantasy. The Journey of the Nightisans does not disappoint. This was certainly an adventure like no other.
While the plot had elements I could easily identify their sources, the way Linam used them in this story was truly unique. This is a rolicking romp through a magical world, multiple dimensions, and the mad scientist personality type. The author turns the traditional "save the world" quest and turns it on it's ear, in this humorous spoof on fantasy novels.
I highly recommend this book.

It is wholesome enough to be enjoyed by children and engaging enough to hold the interest of an adult. This would be a wonderful read-aloud book for family night. The offbeat humor and wacky situations make this story an entertaining read.
I got this book and got the author to sign it at a book signing! This book is so good.
