Larry the Alligator: Makes Friends (Vol.1) Paperback & Kindle – Large Print
Format: Kindle EditionVerified Purchase
We all know that feeling of wanting to be a part of something.
In LARRY THE ALLIGATOR MAKES FRIENDS by author/poet LaDonna Marie we meet an alligator named Larry that wants to be able to enjoy the company of others—but he has to get out of his own way first.
So much to love about this book that I think young readers and even adults will appreciate. First Larry had to get out of his comfort zone and reach out to others. This can be difficult for any age, but his mother was a source of encouragement for him that motivated him to at least try. What happens to Larry can also prove true for us: Not everyone will want our company. And the truth is we shouldn’t want to be around just anyone either just so we won’t be alone. Like Larry we want to find those that we have things in common with and that appreciate our company.
This book shows us that the effort pays off, but we have to be willing to try.
Great message that I think young people will easily understand and adults will see the importance of the reminder.

When she gets the chance to move away to Los Angeles, she hops on it and doesn’t look back. Laine’s plans to focus only on her career and nothing else, are suddenly thrown to the wind when she meets the dangerous and unbalanced Mischief.
Mischief, a music producing banger from Compton, only cares about three things; music, his money, and his brothers. Having to be raised by his aunt, because he was born to unfit parents, he’s callous, rude, frank, and downright out of his mind.

When the one person he thought would never turn his back on him, does just that, his life takes a wild turn no one would ever forget. All of Malice’s secrets are on display for his wife and the world to see, but that is not stopping him from trying to work on his marriage. Realizing that his wife is not budging, he finds a new friend, but will she live up to Kam’s potential, or will Malice realize that he has more fight in him to get his wife back?

After she is released from the hospital, she tries to steer clear of her husband, but he is making that impossible by popping up everywhere and stalking her on social media.
