Publisher's Description

Taren reconciles with her father, who has rejected her for years.

"How do you cope with a father who abandoned you nine years ago, has returned and wants to be loved again? Sixteen year old Taren decides she is not going to forgive him, no matter how Christian he has become. In fact, non-hiking Taren is so far into unforgiveness that she decides going on a several day mountain back-pack trip with her church’s youth group is preferable to staying anywhere near her dad. Taren figures avoiding her father is worth any amount of annoyance, even when that group include the weirdoes that make up the rest of the youth group, a pair of boots that are the height of fashion and very uncomfortable, and pepper spray to ward off the wolves and bears. After the group reaches the mountains, the chaperones get sick and guess who takes their place? You’ve got it! Taren’s Dad just happens to be a guide trained in mountain rescue. And you can be sure his rescue experience is going to be needed.
"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 book’s 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
