This was a great book! My sister got it for Christmas along with the movie. I have read the book once and seen the movie twice. The books adds a lot of detail that the movie doesn't have and sticks closely to the movie. I can't wait to read the second book. I highly recommend it to all teenagers and adults, but I do not recommend it for those under 13 because of some of the subjects it covers. This is a great book!!
My daughter read this book then I read it. It's a must for parents and kids alike. I just bought one for a teen of a single parent trying to figure things out. This book is a great reminder of forgiveness, redemption and God's great love for us all!
I love love love this book, i read it within 1 1/2 days of getting it, it portrays a good message of what goes on in schools and even in youth groups today, yes this book is descriptive, but to me truth is best served raw. How can a book be called "To save a Life" if it ain't true to life? I love how Jake decided to die to his self and go after those who are outcasts, for that is what we should do. When he did that he saw changes happen.
Good concept but must be very careful who you recommend this book to due to its consistent and detailed explanation of sexual temptation. I understand the idea of being authentic but any time a guy has to put a book down, a Christian book at that, due to mental images, I believe it is not a good nor appropriate thing. Christian books should not only be redemptive in its conclusion but should also be an oasis from the temptations of this world that youth are bombarded with everywhere. Be very careful to whom you recommend this book to.
