This is an enjoyable tale of faith and love. The characters are easy to relate to, I really liked Aunt Hattie; she's the kind of lady I want to be when I'm older.
The story was has and interesting message, but the attempt to "slang up" of the text was utterly annoying. I am around many types of people who speak various slang terms--I don't have difficulty decoding what they are saying. Listening to these teens made me want pierce my eardrums.
David Aaron Baker is what makes this story bearable. I tried to read this text, but I'm extremely grateful for Baker's skill.
This book sucks you in emotionally...I became really connected with the characters, not only as a "reader" but as a mother, a Christian, and a teacher.
There are many memorable moments, but when Nicholas gets blown out the water during a tit-for-tat conversation with a former student. The facts discussed were one's I had heard many times...still very thought provoking.
Bill Myers performance at the end of the story evoked so much emotion for me. His ability to portray every character during the chaos was amazing.
I'd want to take Travis out to dinner just to find out if he was still hung up on the logical side of things. Being a programmer he lives in a world of logic, so much so it seemed like he refused to believe or accept the goings on of the program world. He reminded me of a Jeff Bridges in the The Big Lebowski, just so laid back.
This story starts off a little slow, but once the rising action starts the story is really good. It has a lot of heart-wrenching moments and you really get a grasp of what the characters are feeling. Excellent read.
