|“Bravo for this lovely, slim volume that should sit under the Christmas tree for all young readers. It’s about 10-year-olds but is appropriate for ages as young as eight.”–Lynn Voedisch, Blogcritics
“Preteen and early teen years are a time when things cease being black and white, and there are more questions than answers. Spirit Within Club portrays a year in the life of kids who are trying to find answers for and about themselves, and introduces an array of thought-provoking questions that will help real kids discover the meaning of responsibility, friendship, and tolerance. Its lessons in social ethics and spiritual development are a bonus.”
“The writer was spot on with only taking one to make a difference and we all must take that first step. Well, seven friends have taken that first step. Who and how many can we add to it?”

I was enthralled from the moment I started the first story in the book…
A brilliantly scary debut by Sahar Sabati–thankfully without the gore!
It takes talent to write a good short story that is really scary, but Sahar Sabati accomplished just that.
A creepy primer of paranormal stories with twisted unexpected endings, this chilling little book of stories by Sahar Sabati is perfect for those first time readers of horror not looking for a blood-soaked visceral experience. Instead, the collection’s appeal is in its ordinary recognisable characters and Sabati’s reflection on the spooky and disturbing anomalies that touch our every day.
|At least two of these moved me to tears… The collection is so well-integrated, I don’t think one could have had this effect without the others.—Melissa Erin Knudtson, Amazon Review
Fantastic, thought-provoking collection. Highly Recommend! A great collection that explores
|Poignant and interesting collection of stories that opens up an in depth discussion on family life and all that that entails. Warp and Woof is brilliant and thought-provoking.—Sieni A.M., Amazon Review
This book is really interesting and informative. The way it approaches topics will give you pause for thought – and it is worth reading for that alone
All in all, a fantastic read! Wonderfully therapeutic and really makes you think about your own life and issues and the relationships around and within you.
If you’re looking for a collection of short stories that is enjoyable, can bring a smile of recognition to your face and is a fun and insightful read, this is a fantastic choice.
