Editorial Reviews

Walter Wangerin Jr.
"So forthright, faithful, clear, common, and honest that any young people who read it will find themselves as much consoled as challenged."

"[Paterson] explores the concept of self in a difficult world with grace and thoughtfulness. . . Young adults who are struggling with major issues in their understandings of Christianity . . . will find comfort in her words."
