    Good book for middle graders or ages 9 14 Joe Dearborne has earned a reputation for being fearless Fearlessbut not necessarily brave Can you guess what he needs to do in this book? When a reckless boy needs to learn about boundaries safety and bravery there is a lot to cover hereOf course Joe needed something to challenge him so after a nasty bite from a coral snake Joe is suddenly able to experience fear He is even afraid to go into the basement Naturally this is not the type of thing he wants to admit to others Add to that a new mysterious and creepy housekeeper Joe finds himself in a situation unlike one he has ever faced Something is not right about Mrs Chill the housekeeper She is sweet when his father is around but the longer she is a member of the house the menacing and wicked she seems Yet when so many things now terrify Joe what is a boy to do on his own?Part mystery part adventure and full of fun This book is filled with uirky characters amusing situations and challenges that many kids go through in life to varying degrees Several great lessons to be learned can also be found within these pages Joe's character is easy to relate to He has a severe weakness for speaking up for himself many times and still has a long way to go but every youth can be found in his shoes at least a some point I wish he had stronger friendships That was one thing that saddened me No friends Mrs Chill was a well set mystery Outside of her being a bad guy they author does a decent job keeping her character strange and lightly veiled in mystery until the end It really keeps you going and the one thing I can say is that I don't like her petulantly sticks out tongue at mental image of Mrs Chill Overall a pleasure to read

    In Fearless Joe Dearborne by Lisa Whitney Mitchell Joe finds it hard to live his life without risking it He thinks nothing of running into a burning house to save a puppy or entering a dark cave to rescue his friend's dad's autographed baseball All of that changes when he gets it into his head to pick up a poisonous snake and gets bit He survives but something's changed; Joe is no longer fearless When Joe's dad goes out of town and he must stay with his aunt's housekeeper's cousin Mrs Chill Joe is afraid to stand up to her Will Joe ever find his fearlessness? Is there a difference between being brave and being fearless? Joe spends the remainder of the novel in search of these very answersI liked Fearless Joe Dearborne It was a uick and easy read suitable for middle grade readers The characters were uirky and interesting especially Mrs Chill and Joe's Aunt P and the situations were humourous which kept me interested Though Joe is no longer fearless in his mind he still gets himself into situations where the reader wonders if this is where he regains his fearless status something we are kept guessing until the end what will happen that will help Joe to regain his fearless mojo which is enough suspense to keep the reader readingThough it's been a while since I've read a middle grade novel not since my own high school age children were middle grade I think they would have enjoyed Fearless Joe's adventure pre teens are sure to get the message within that you don't have to be fearless to be brave

    Note I was given a free electronic review copy in return for my honest reviewThis was a uick read that kept me turning the pages It wasn't uite what I expected from the summary I think I expected slapstick humor But despite the over played Mrs Chill the story really is the tale of a boy who's suffered a lot of loss and is trying to figure out who he is Joe has been dealing with it or not by being recklessly brave until he goes too far and loses his fearlessness Now he has to learn that courage is going on even when you are scaredMy biggest criticism of this book lies in the contrast between the stock characters Mrs Chill and dotty Aunt P and the very human boy at the center of the story Mrs Chill is like every other evil boarding school mistress of literature from Mrs Minchen A Little Princess and Mrs Monday Nancy and Plum to Count Olaf A Series of Unfortunate Events her perfidy is obvious to both Joe and the reader but the adults in the case seem oblivious I think this is intentional the comedic aspects tone down what could otherwise be a pretty intense story But I'm not sure it's necessary I'd like to see how Joe copes with his real world problems in the real worldRecommendationThis is a fun and easy read for kids from about 8 and up Kids are apt to really enjoy the goofy aspects though older children used to books with intense issues may share some of my complaints 35 stars; I'm marking four because really it was an enjoyable read

    Fearless Joe Dearborne is a story about a young man who initially is fearless He has done many things that gives his father fear of losing him but Joe just throws himself into dangerous situations without a single thought to his own safety or his father's fears He runs into a burning building to save a puppy In the past he had pulled a girl from a hole in the ice on a pond without thinking that he too could fall in He is fearless It takes the wisdom of a fourth grade boy whom he calls Green Beans to point out to Joe that everything he does could not be considered brave Bravery is action that overcomes fear while being fearless is the absence of fear Joe does not want to be fearless He wants to be brave In an attempt to instill some fear in himself he picks up a coral snake He knows its bite could be deadly but he still feels no fearThat is until he gets bit and almost dies Life drastically changes for him His dad hires a housekeeper to keep him in line and keep the house clean She does than that though and helps Joe to feel fear in his life She is also the reason for Joe's conversion to braveryI thought this was a fantastic book Each chapter starts with a word being defined and then the word is used within the chapter I absolutely love this aspect It not only is an entertaining story but it helps kids to learn new words and how to use them The character development really showed Joe's transformation I loved it

    Joe Dearborne is my hero At the tender age of ten Joe already has courage and integrity than most people twice his age This is a delightfully inspiring story full of adventure excitement and chills Joe proves himself to be a reluctant hero continually fighting his internal self doubt which leads him to test his bravery in sometimes foolish ways As he moves through his trials he forgets to be brave and simply does what needs doing and ultimately redefines for himself his own idea of what it means to be fearless I am long past ten years old but I found myself glued to the storyline unable and unwilling to put it down Each chapter flowed easily into the next with little or no irrelevant or tedious content The dialog between the characters is perfectly age appropriate witty and succinctChildren from age 8 12 should love this story It is full of suspense and excitement but also provides well disguised learning opportunities which should please parents as well There are some fairly advanced words throughout the story but the author takes the time to define them in the context of the book thereby making their meaning clear to the reader while not interfering with the smooth flow of the story I simply can't say enough good things about this wonderful debut novel Lisa Whitney Mitchell has come out fearlessly treating us all to what could become an iconic novel

    I have a sixth grader and I thought he’d enjoy this book I happened to get it on a day that it was FREE on Kindle so there was no cost to me My kids have access to a Kindle E reader app to read books so I had it sent directly to their deviceThe book began by asking them if they’d rather be fearless or courageous I asked each child to write down their answer read the book and then write down their answer again We’d then see if their answer changed after reading the book why or why not and what they thought of the book Having three kids we had a variety of answers both to begin and end; some opinions changed and others did not As a parent that’s interesting to see and a great conversation starter to get some insight as to how your children process thoughts ideas and suggestions Ultimately I was pleased to see that my kids saw that Joe was making some poor choices and that fear can be a good thing in certain instances They also really grasped that courage is an honorable character trait and that overcoming your fears to help someone and choosing to do the “right” thing is the best choiceWe enjoyed the way the story was told the humor and it captivated the interest of my 9 11 and 12 year old boys who were trapped indoors during a Nor’easter

    A great read Lot's of humor and a great moral to the story As well as some great vocabulary at the beginning of each chapter with a meaning of the word and I found that very great for kids to learn a real word and the meaning that goes along with the story they are not hard words but fit in with this story perfect I really think kids can learn What being reckless is and what can happen if you are while still laughing and enjoying a great book as well as being a true hero It is a action packed book with lot's of laugh's and fun I think boy's will really like this book however I also think it is good for girls It is a great story with action and adventure laughs and suspense A great book
