In The Girl Who Loved Elton John and the Little Boy on the Moon, Tina Jenkins has written a most wonderful book through the eyes of the person whose life it is. Writing a book like this takes the art of understanding and insight to know when to continue with long explanations and when to cut it off short, but not too short to leave the reader hanging. The author catches the reader’s attention from the first to the very last page. Tina draws the reader in and at times you find yourself not able to put the book down until you have finished reading or until the next change in pace.
Tina Jenkins writes in a style that makes you feel that you are actually walking and living with Maya Claire Johnson, the main character in the story. Tina introduces so many colorful characters throughout the book from Maya’s parents, Clarence Johnson and Edwina Meilleur, to her husband Nick and then-husband Jay. All these characters are an important part of who Maya is, how she evolves into the wonderful young mother and woman she becomes, and how she uses what life throws at her to her advantage. However, she never loses sight of the fact that she is a Child of God and believes in Jesus, His son. I found it inspiring that someone could speak so freely about God and Jesus. This is a very real part of who Maya is and a vital part of the story. It is quite an inspiring book and the reader will find themself turning pages long into the night just to make sure they discover all that is revealed in this amazing story. Thank you, Tina, for an inspiring read.
