    • Paula says:

      My daugther is 10. She wants Christian books that are suspense novels. Her favorite were the “I survived Series”. She also really loved the “Teddy Jo” Series. She said the girl is a Christian and she likes that aspect of the book. Are any of Jill Williamson’s books inclusive of Christian characters or values?

      • Hi, Paula. My books are all written from a Christian world view, however some are for older teens and adults and have themes that are too mature for a ten-year-old reader. Only my RoboTales series is similar in writing level to the I Survived books. They are fairytale retellings set in space. The first story, Tinker, is the Cinderella story told from a boy main character who works in a robot shop. The second book is a Snow White retelling. My Blood of Kings trilogy is recommended for readers 12 and up. If you were looking for books suitable for a ten-year-old reader, I would highly recommend the following titles:

        The Code of Silence series by Tim Shoemaker (book one- Code of Silence). Three friends solve mysteries together.

        The Wingfeather Saga by Andrew Peterson (book one- On the Edge of the Dark Sea of Darkness). A fun fantasy series about the Igby children and those who are after them.

        You can also check out the children’s page on FamilyFiction.com, where they will have lots of recommendations for children’s books: https://www.familyfiction.com/genre/childrens/

        Hope that helps. When she is 12 or 13, come back. She will likely be ready for my teen stories then. God bless!
