    1. Yet another heart wrenching story from Ms. Tibbs. Love the evolution of Brian's life, and how he allows himself to feel that he is of value, and is important. His relationship with his father grows from nothing to something that is close and meaningful, growing and enviable. A must read! You will not be able to put it down once you start it, it's the best read for a chilly evening!

    2. At the start of this story we meet Brian who is 12 years old and living a horrible life. His mother is a drunk and is gone for 2 weeks at time leaving him cold, lonly , and hungry. His only true friend at the time is an 8 year old neighbor girl , Stacy, who is just as bad off as he is. Her mother died and her father never got over it. Her father lives his life in front of the tv set ignoring his daughters needs. Brian meets a friendly neighbor who encourages him by giving him small jobs to do so [...]

    3. Rhonda Tibbs' Song of the Snowman accurately portrays literary realism. As Mrs. Tibbs' characters unfold and evolve, the reader is able to find himself/herself within the novel.

Fortunately, Tibbs wrote a prequel, Angel's Blues which is a must read for those like me who genuinely mourned the fact that I had finished reading Song of the Snowm [...]

    4. I really enjoy this read. The author provided a twist by using an upcoming "rock star" as a main character and it made for interesting reading. While at some times it became slightly confusing on who was doing the talking it took nothing away from the story.I got the impression that this book could have been much longer and I'm wondering if Rhonda had to edit it down to meet word count.(As an author myself, I found this to be an demanding issue with publishers.) I would recommend this to anyone [...]
