I enjoy dolphins. I was happy to watch this movie on netflix. It was done okay. Though it seems to be a story about a daughter and a father. I do not know what the plot is really about. It was fair movie in that case.

Though there seems to be part of the dolphin what they can teach us in their ways.  The cast was good. I would watch with children. There a little drinking and I would only allow children around 13 with this movie. Other then that it find. Teenagers around 13 an up is good for this movie. I would let parents decide for their children.

The Children Return By Martian Walker

Book Title: The Children Return: A Bruno, Chief of Police Novel
Author: Martian Walker
Publisher: Knopf
Series: Bruno, Chief of Police #7
Genres: Mystery, Crime/ Detective, Fiction, France
Publish Date: April 28, 2015
Disclaimer: Received from Edelweiss For Review
Description: The Dordogne's favorite chief of police is back in a heart-poundingly suspenseful case that finds his small town innocently targeted by a global terrorism network.

When an agent tracking domestic jihadists is found murdered near St. Denis, it's troubling enough for Bruno's beloved village. But when Sami--an autistic Muslim youth raised locally but thought lost to Islamic extremism in Afghanistan--comes home, things get far more complicated: abducted and exploited for his technological genius, Sami has used that same talent to gather a trove of al-Qaeda intel. Now the same jihadists who killed the agent aim to silence Sami, and as an international tribunal descends to process Sami's case, Bruno must scramble to track the terrorists down before they exact their own justice. Meanwhile, Bruno's juggling the affections of a sometime lover and the mixed, alluring signals of one of the high-ranking U.S. intelligence officers on Sami's case. Add to that a member of the tribunal with dangerous skeletons in his closet, and a high-profile Jewish philanthropist whose presence in St. Denis seems to be attracting attention from the jihadists. It's almost enough to make Bruno miss out on the village's wine harvest supper.

I enjoyed this like no other mystery book. The main character Bruno, was someone I would enjoy reading more about. He seem content to help his town. This book could be read different ways as of a mystery, love story, adventure, or even a little of a guide about Muslim or even about a town.

It depends on how you would enjoy reading this book. To me it was more fun to read it as a Mystery. I feel like i was discovering along with Bruno. We also find out about Sami and how he got where he ended up. I really enjoyed read and learning a little more about France. We got about 3 story lines going on with this book.
 
It a sweet story about a family love for their son. It can even be a about a love story about Bruno and what going on with his community. If your children or child enjoy adventure and some action then this book is worth it. You even get to feel like a detective and try and solve and save lives. That will be up to you and decide how you like your book.

Description: Treena is nervous for Rating Day. A single number will brand her forever—a valuable citizen, or a pathetic waste of space. Her top-Rated boyfriend is confident their scores will coincide so they can attend the academy together. But when the big day arrives, her true number shocks everyone.

To get her life and boyfriend back, she must go undercover and expose a military spy. Doesn’t sound too hard, except that someone wants her dead. And then there’s Vance, the mysterious soldier with a haunted past and beautiful brown eyes. Together, they discover a dark numbers conspiracy, one that shatters the nation’s future. Treena must join up with Vance if she is to survive the dangerous game of numbers—and the terrible war that rages within her heart.

A book about Numbers. This book got my attention with it title. It keep me guessing though out the book. We learn about a girl who is the main character named "Treena", and the other main character named "Vance". There seems strange about NORA.

It get even better and better once Treena gets her Rating on Rating day. Though things start to get more complicated and many others things get even more interesting. Though why does she get rating that makes her a Red?

Treena get her second chance to a deal that would get her a Rating reconsideration. So she send to the EPIC. That about what starts to get you to keep guessing going to happen. Is Treena Rating wrong?

Though seem to want her dead after a while. Though we also see a romance form. Though what can all this be about. Why is NORA capturing and killing their own citizens. She and Vance have to figure out what going on and way they want Treena dead.  There are may surprises and I do not want to spoil the ending of this book.
How do you feel about Labeling people?
