5 Stars Out Of 5
my daughter's reaction
April 13, 2011
A copy of my Amazon review: I checked this out from the church library for my 12yo daughter. Yes, she's mature for her age. She found it interesting and read it quickly, even though she has regular assigned homeschool reading. I read the back and thought it interesting since the character is similar to me (even in name) with the exception of the healthy loving parents. My daughter understands the severity of my dysfunctional adopted "Christain" parents, and yet (with God's grace) my faith held fast. She shared a lot of the book with me as she read it and from that I decided to give it the 5 stars. Although I read the 1 star well written rating, I still kept the 5 stars (on amazon.com). I will be sure to ask my daughter her opinions about the judgemental attitudes of the characters. I love how the book opened up some great discussions for us about true friends, the message clothing gives, the issue of dating/foreplay and having doubts about God. I will look for other books in this series.
I absolutely loved this book. I picked it up at my local library not knowing that it was a Christian book. When I started reading it, I thought, oh great...just what I need, a BOOK preaching at me (I should mention that I have been an atheist for a while now).But then, as I read it, I noticed that Kim was going through a lot of the same things as me. She wasn't sure about God, and hadn't found her way. I could totally relate to everything she was going through.Call me crazy, but I feel as if God led me to this book because He knew I needed help finding my way back to Him. He knew I was lost. I now feel much closer to God much happier, all because of this book. Melody Carlson is an amazing author, and I thank her whole heartedly for writing this book.
