    "Sometimes I want to spend hours talking with my best friends about boys and fashion and school and life. I want to go to the gym; I want my hair to look nice; I want to be allowed to wear jeans. I want to be a normal young woman living in America, sometimes. But I want other things more. All the time. I want to be spiritually and emotionally filled every day. I want to be loved and cuddled by a hundred children and never go a day without laughing.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Kisses from Katie to be better than the print version?

    Didn't read the print...so I can't answer that question.


    What did you like best about this story?

    It is great to see a real person do what seems to be an impossible task. Many times, Katie's story brought me to tears because of her faith in God to say


    What does Jaimee Draper bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Being a guy, I would have messed up getting the feminine emotions.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    There were so many. When you think God can't do anymore with Katie, it happens again and again.


    Any additional comments?

    To see such a young woman doing the seemingly impossible, is just a wonderful thing to experience what Jesus has done through Katie. As stated in my title, I shed many tears at what she shared with us. This is one of the best inspirational books I have ever read.

    Born in a South Africa divided by racism and hatred, this one small boy will come to lead all the tribes of Africa. Through enduring friendships with Hymie and Gideon, Peekay gains the strength he needs to win out. And in a final conflict with his childhood enemy, the Judge, Peekay will fight to the death for justice.

    Story
    What made the experience of listening to The Power of One the most enjoyable?

    Bryce's book keeps you from the very beginning until the end. The story just keeps you interested.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The storytelling is steady. It keeps you wanting to hear more.


    What does Humphrey Bower bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    His talent of changing voices for each character is unbelievable. His voice brings the characters more to life.


    If you could take any character from The Power of One out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    Doc, was such a positive influence on Pekays life. His optimism overflowed to the other characters. He helped Pekay have a joy for learning.


    Any additional comments?

    I hope the 2nd book on Pekay is turned into an audible book very soon. I am ready to listen to the last chapter of Pekay's life.
