Yell Out Loud

Ten-year-old Max Engel stopped speaking, and his family doesn’t know why. The great war has just ended, and his neighbors and friends in the town of Castle are excited for soldiers to return home and the bombing to end. Max wants life to get back to normal. But it doesn’t, not yet anyway. Along with their best buddies, Max and his brother Hugo meet a mysterious older man, who tells them about a buried gypsy treasure in Castle Forest. Chests of gold would solve all their parents’ money problems, but the kids are not allowed into the woods. And really, who knew if the treasure is real? Are gypsies even real? But Max learns that sometimes breaking the rules, trusting your instinct, and helping others is exactly what kids need to know how to do. That’s how they get their voice. And it’s especially important to have friends around to help, even though it is a Jack Russell dog named Aldo who really does change everything.

“This is an awesome book for anyone, but especially for those with alcoholism in their family. It is well-written and easy to read. It tells about the life of this particular family through many points of view which leads you to sympathize with the alcoholic as well as their family. It gives a very realistic view of the hospice/dying process which is familiar to so many people and definitely provokes some tears, but definitely worth the read! I’d highly recommend it! This is my first experience with the author Hays Blinckmann, but won’t be my last! “

“In the Salt is an intelligently written, funny, and entertaining literary journey about three generations of strong-willed women who discover themselves and their history – which is rife with dark secrets and familial complexity. This was our choice for book club, and our discussion was lively, real, raw and passionate. We all loved it.”

“Give yourself a break for an hour and read “The Big O – A Tale of Quarantine, Angels and HoHo’s.” Hot off the press and perfect for this moment in time, from legendary Key West writer Hays Blinckmann, this little e-booklet will give you a big warm hug, light up your insides and give you hope for the future too. In typical Hays fashion, she grabs you right from the front page and draws you into her character’s lives and hearts. Treat yourself. Thank you for a lovely, fun read Hays! “
