"In The Slide, experienced youth author Catherine Farnes presents a thought provoking, true to life, exciting novel about the problems teens face today. Set in Montana, descriptions of landscape are breathtaking. With emotions ranging from humor to deep distress, this books major issues include: forgiveness and reconciliation, change, friendship, rational thinking in dangerous conditions, backsliding, divorce, parental failure, death, salvation. Narrated by Taren, the characters become recognizable, believable. Situations are credible. The straight forward plot flows convincingly into the denouement. Christianity forms the basis for all solutions, but, like life, not all problems are solved. The ending will make a good beginning for a sequel. The Slide is recommended for all church libraries and schools, as well as being useful for home-schoolers, youth groups, and as a gift." -- Donna Eggett, Christian Book Previews
