My neighbor and I read through this book over a couple days; mostly her as I found the first 1/3 uninteresting enough for my mind to wander. She agrees the first few chapters could use trimming down or even removal. From there we agree the plot has potential but the book falls short. For me it is the preaching tones and lack of depth. I could only recommend this book to those who enjoy their Christian books this way. For her, it is more the way things are presented and the fact this is supposed to be a YA book. She feels this should be Adult reading. We do agree that certain scenes are well written and the book has potential. We received an evaluation copy through the publisher in exchange for an honest review. These are our opinions and may not mirror your own. We received no compensation beyond the free copy.
See for yourself how the first chapter reads here.
