Una noche de viernes en la que se mezclan música, drogas y alcohol. Un verano que cambiará la vida de unos jóvenes para siempre. Pero no todos acabarán igual. Todo dependerá del compañero de baile que elijan
No bailes con la muerte es una novela realista, que aborda con estremecedora crudeza la cara oculta de fiestas, discotecas y drogas que muchos jóvenes y adultos desconocen. Una gran labor de investigación en círculos juveniles y en ámbitos médicos y policiales ha concluido con una historia que no dejará indiferente a nadie.

Since we are all about Superheroes and are familiar with many of them, I was anxious to see what Kristen Parrish did with her devotional, No Cape Required.
Kristen's conversational style of writing makes the devotional very palatable for the reader - whether adult or teen. Her 52 heroes include: Captain Kirk and Mr. Spock, Eustace Scrubb, Katness Everdeen, to Storm from X-Men to share a few. I enjoyed her clever twist to take even characters that do not seem appeal, Eastace Scrubb, from the Chronicles of Narnia and demonstrate their hero qualities. It was nice to see her take these hero examples, weave in scripture, and add practical application.
I would have liked to see Kristen clearly share the gospel either at the beginning of the devotional or at the end. Throughout the book, she does indicate that believers are able to do these things through the help of the Holy Spirit and His enabling. Although she has scripture attached to every hero character example, it would have been nice to have the application portion always involve the meditating or memorizing of scripture, since "all Scripture is inspired by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, for training in righteousness; so that the man of God is equipped for every good work." (2 Tim 3:16-17) Lastly, although heroes are often great examples, if there was a way to point the reader to Christ as the ultimate example of being a hero in almost every case and then wrapping it up with that truth - I think it would have been excellent.
I recognize that many readers, especially young people prefer "modern examples" or can relate more easily to what appears "relevant" but I can't help but think that the ultimate and most perfect hero example is always Christ. I know that Kristen utilized "flawed" heroes too, but I think that's why we can never go wrong with Christ as the supreme hero to wrap things up.
I think that his book is a nice first taste to wet a new believer's appetite, but could have been richer and deeper.
