I found myself not wanting to put the book down, reading it every chance I had.
Sam Hopkins is a teenage boy in a town that is probably very familiar with most of us. Sam is a preacher's kid (PK), who is looked at differently by others in his school. They act as if they have to be somewhat fake around him, due to his father being a preacher. This leads Sam to want to change the way he is view, so Sam gets into league with local thief's.
Sam's journey takes him on a path too running from the thief's, playing chicken with a train, getting beat up, learning to break into cars and locks of all kinds. After a encounter with a statue in his father's office Sam realizes that he must stop hanging out with these guys, this choice changes the flow of the book.
Sam and Jennifer attend the same school, but Jennifer is a girl with a mind that causes a world of trouble for Sam. Jennifer has visions of demons and events of horrible ends. Sam saves Jennifer from being abused by the very thief's he has been hanging with, which ends in Sam getting beaten really badly.
Sam though, believes the visions that Jennifer has, as she explains they in a cryptic way. When one vision comes true, Sam must find out what else she knows, when one evening Jennifer shows up in the lawn of his house. This event leads Sam to breaking into a mental hospital, kidnapping Jennifer, running from the police and ultimately saving the lives of hundreds of people.
This story is a whirl wind ride and through faith in God, people, and one's self. Torn between reality and visions Sam and Jennifer race to stop the evil that people are capable of planning and attempting to care out.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book and would recommend it to anyone.
