really enjoyed reading this book. the characters were real and though hurtful things happened to some of them and others made gross mistakes the message of hope remained alive. I love the theme of redemption that is woven into the stories of each character, that God will meet us where we are and make something beautiful of our lives despite all the darkness.
I also loved their teacher who believed in and loved her students against all the odds.
In short it is a wonderful book and i highly recommend it.
I enjoyed Rhythm of Grace and it's fluid dynamics. Although it left quite a bit unanswered setting up a sequel. Anyone that enjoys the diversity of art, expression and creative culture and it's challenges in a small town atmosphere will enjoy this. I was pleasantly surprised.
I did have trouble with this particular book locking up on the ipad2. This has more to do with software development I'm sure.
