Kate is having the best summer a sports-loving eleven-year-old could possibly have. Baseball. Tennis. And to top it off, Kate has just started a three-week class where shes discovering a new love: poetry. Then comes the news that tears Kates world apart. In her close-knit family, Kate has always felt Gods love and protection. But how can she trust God now? Do sports or poetry matter when tragedy strikes? In Kates darkest hour, her mothers faith shines its brightest, helping Kate to see that life is still beautiful and God is still good. Always, no matter what.

Janna RyanNorth Platte, NEAge: 35-44Gender: female4 Stars Out Of 5Good YA, but heavyOctober 2, 2010Janna RyanNorth Platte, NEAge: 35-44Gender: femaleA Young Adult book that deals with a heavy subject in a wonderful way, but that doesn't make it any easier to read. In this book, Katie is set to have a great summer. She is on the baseball team with her brother and her mom and dad are coming to their games. It opens at a game where she makes the winning play, except her mom and dad aren't there to see it. When she gets home something seems seriously wrong, but she figures she must be mistaken. Eventually Mom and Dad take Katie and Ken to the beach for the day to break the bad news... Mom is really sick.
Death and dying are not easy subjects, especially for a 12 year old girl with her whole life in front of her. How will Katie handle this summer with her mom, will she push God away or allow Him to come closer. This was not an easy book to read, but it was so good.
My 13 year old daughter Sarah read it and she thinks it was really good (and sad) and she read it in 1 day! But it was hard for her not to tell me about it. She thinks it is something for all young girls to remember that God is always with you and will be there for us when bad stuff happens. Life goes on that way. But hey never blame the umpire (and God!) You see the umpire is like God, of course the umpire will mess up even though God doesn't. But the umpire is in control of the game. So let's say your team lost, of course you will get mad but you knew it was a fair game.
Molly Edwards, Book Reviews by Buuklvr814 Stars Out Of 5March 1, 2010Molly Edwards, Book Reviews by Buuklvr81This was a wonderfully written book. I am very pleased that I had the opportunity to review this book. It is a short and easy read, as will be my review. Gene Fehler pulls together an unforgettable story of a young girl struggling with death of a loved one from cancer and feeling like her life is unfair. The issues and ways of handling this and God all shine through in Fehler's work. I will say that this book is geared toward younger people, especially those who may be struggling with death and finding their happiness, however, I recommend this book as a wonderful read for everyone, because there is a message from God in here that is sure to touch everyone in some way. I know it did me. My heart goes out to Kate and her family...I cried with them, smiled with them, and prayed with them. I hope you will give this book a chance and get to know the wonderful characters throughout this story...it is worth the time and worthy of a 4 star praise! Well done!
