Is it possible to beat the odds and make a movie unlike anything ever done before? Or will they lose everything in the process?

I would only recommend this book to very conservative American Christians, and mostly to youth or youth pastors who want to push this dogma. There is a LOT of religious morality pushing in here, and it's very judgmental (conservative = anti-gay-marriage, no teen drinking or sex, lots of focus on temptation and dealing with it, etc.) If you're okay with that, it'll feed your viewpoint. If you're a more liberal Christian, you'll need to overlook some of the over-assertions made. If you're agnostic or from another faith, give it a pass, you may be offended.
Yes somewhat. I'm very religious, but don't want to be hit over the head with it. There must be some middle ground. Why can't couples just be monogamous, kids just good and pure without having to be so focused on saying it's because of God and the Bible? God is great, and so is the Bible, but I'm not a good person living a clean life just because of my faith. My kids are good, but not being judged because we practice Christianity in a certain way. Good is good, golden rule can be applied without being so very pushy.
Several narrators, voices are okay but preachy.
Probably won't read anything from conservative Christian authors again - the sound clip used for the book didn't include any of this stuff, so it was quite a surprise when I bought it and started listening. Misleading advertising? Maybe. I probably won't return it, but then again, maybe I will.
This story continues on where the Baxter saga left off. It is very well written and an enjoyable "listen." The narrators were easy to listen to, and it was nice to hear more than one narrator as the story progressed.
I liked that the characters were deeply developed and believable. I had forgotten the fears and dreams through a young girls eyes.
This was the first book that I had read (listened to) by Karen Kingsbury and enjoyed her writing very much. She has a style similar to another one of my favorite authors, Francine Rivers.
I liked having 5 narrators. I would have liked to have the their voices a little more distictive or recognizable. A few times this caused confusion. One of the female narrators was not good, but I couldn't say which one, because I didn't know her name. The male voices were awesome!
I cried when someone else was chosen for the leads girlfriend. That must have been very hard for the producer/dad.
I loved this book. I love that Kingsbury was able to conviegh a beautiful Christian message in a sweet believeable story.....Just PUSH.....Pray Until Something Happens!
Great story and message. Book is written more for college age students, which is great, but disappointed I wasn't aware of it prior to my purchase of both books thru Audible.
I love Karen Kingsbury, but I have to say I was disappointed with the quality of this narration. In particular one female narrator was quite poor and stilted which is very unfortunate because KK is an excellent author.
