Product Description

Do you feel as if you just want to shout at people? Jane is doing some shouting of her own! Back in her old home town of Gipley Jane meets up with her old friends Heather and Heron. Heather's mum has a slimely new boyfriend, the church is about to be closed down and Jane is writing her last Sandra Richmond story. Then the girls decide to spear-head a "Save Our Church" campaign. But they need help.

That's where Woody and Wingnut come in. Who are they? They are Gipley's very own environmental campaigners. Soon the girls are up to their necks in banners, slogans and campaign strategies. Jane and Heather find themselves in one mess after another. If it's not a full blown protest on the church roof then it's a forbidden party at Heather's mums. When things get really out of control it's only then they realize that they have forgotten to ask God for his advice. But has it all gone too far?

Publisher's Description

Story: Jane and Heather are reunited and decide to try and re-invigorate Heather's church, which has fallen on hard times. They arrange a 'Save our Church' campaign along with the help of a friend's brother who happens to be an environmental campaigner.

The campaign is a disaster and Jane and Heather realise that they didn't pray to God about the situation and cared more about what they wanted than about what God had planned for the situation.

Jane and Heather also learn that you can worship God anywhere and that the church is not a building but it is a group of people worshipping God together.

Throughout the story there is romance, adventure - and lessons to learn about forgiveness and practical Christian love.

AND Jane is writing a new Sandra Richmond fantasy - Sandra has returned to a planet where she once was a prisoner, to see old friends in the Rebel Army. But there's a spy in the ranks.

This book is exciting, funny and fast moving teenage fiction!

Editorial Reviews

"Something to Shout About The final and probably most humorous book in the Jane series! Getting involved in saving an old church, Jane meets some amazing and quirky characters and learns something important about listening to God. She's still writing her sci-fi stories but understanding more about God's work done in his power. People have asked if Jane is ‘me' when I was young, but she's not (although I've drawn on some of my experiences - yes, I wrote sci-fi and had a character called Sandra Richmond!); however, I've learned the same kind of lessons as an adult and have hoped to share what I've found out with young people. Families might fall apart, and life might seem to, but once you've got Jesus, you're not alone any more - the message of the Jane books."

Author/Artist Review

Author: Sheila Jacobs
Located in: England
Submitted: August 18, 2006

    Tell us a little about yourself.  I'm a Christian author of 8 books to date, including the WATCHERS published by Authentic Lifestyle 2003. I live in a little town in England and spend lots of time walking my dog!

    What was your motivation behind this project?  To share the truth of the gospel in an approachable way through humour and funny characters - and yet make sure there's reality in there to make the reader think.

    What do you hope folks will gain from this project?  I hope they will find this book funny, but also be challenged by the more serious message.

    Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists?  For this novel, I wanted to write something exciting but amusing to end the Jane series. When I was about 14 I wrote a book starting with a train journey and so this one starts that way...

    Anything else you'd like readers / listeners to know:  Watchers is a Christian futuristic action thriller for teens and young adults... and Sandra Richmond and Paul Sinclaire, who appear in the Jane series, were characters in stories I wrote as a young teen!
