#FlashbackFriday, Super Sporty series, Ellie Firestone, On My Kindle Book Reviews

Back in July 2015, a very special young woman, Ellie Firestone asked me to review one of her books, Super Sporty 3. I was deeply honored to receive her request; she was taking a chance by approaching an inexperienced book blogger, and I wanted to do right by her.

The Super Sporty series, Ellie Firestone, #FlashbackFriday, On My Kindle Book Reviews,
Sporty and her best friend, Harley, are two young horses who play basketball for Horsecitty's professional team called the Shorthorns. They're also superheroes.

If you like horses, if you like superheroes, if you like adventure and aliens, then you'll love Super Sporty and the rest of the Horsecitty gang.
I was instantly charmed by Miss Firestone's illustrations and found her use of vocabulary impressive. She seemed to intuitively understand the importance of balancing entertainment with reading and reading comprehension. As with any author who writes books that I enjoy, I hoped she would like my review enough to request more reviews from me.

When she did request another review from me, I was relieved. However, what I didn't realize at the time was how emotionally invested I would become in the Super Sporty series and in Miss Firestone as an author. I have had the privilege of watching her grow and develop as an author and personally through her writing. I felt a twinge of regret as I finished reading the final book in the Super Sporty seriesSuper Sporty 9: The Wrath of Titanicus, but I also felt joy because I realized that she was beginning a new chapter in her life personally and as an author.

Ellie Firestone lives in Texas with her family, two dogs, and a whole host of fictional characters. At various times in her life she has wanted to be an astronaut, a cowgirl, a ninja, a superhero, and an explorer. However, once she realized that a writer can be all of those things at once, she never looked back.

Ellie loves horses, swimming, and reading. When she's not writing, she can often be found at the stables, in the pool, or curled up on the sofa with a good book.
