"I hate being a foster kid!" Fourteen-year-old Lissa had thought those words dozens if not hundreds of times over the last 12 years. She and her twin brother, Leigh, had been foster kids for as long as they could remember. Lissa was naturally shy, and this life of bouncing around from one foster home to another, of changing schools midterm, and of never having a real place they could call home had left her with feelings of insecurity and doubt. Would they ever have a real home? Why didn't anyone want them?
Then one cold winter afternoon, Lissa persuades her brother to make believe that a tunnel under a snow-covered bridge is the entrance to a new world and a new life. Together they walk through it, and it changes their lives forever.
I absolutely love this story! Listening to this book helps me to take a step back and remember what a wonderful gift family is!
The first time I read this story was from the paper copy and I loved getting to listen to it again! The reader is excellent. I love that she changes her voice just a little for each of the characters.
As the story progresses, Lisa's struggle for the security of family brought tears to my eyes. The way that Rebekah resolved the case in the end was perfect! I love the beautiful picture of salvation the adoption in this story portrays.
I just love the creativity in all of the different personalities that the characters have. They are very real to life. Debbie, with her hilarious enthusiasm, brought a comical side to this story that I thoroughly enjoyed! :)
All in all, this is a very enjoyable, wholesome story. I would, heartily, recommend this book to many a friend!
