This is the second book I have read by Darrell Scott, I've also read Rachel's Tears. I liked Rachel's Tears better. Maybe because it focused more on Rachel herself and her religious beliefs.

Chain Reaction: A Call to Compassionate Revolution is a remarkable portrayal of goodness. Rachel Scott has become my hero. Her dad is an amazing man because he is attempting to continue her legacy after her death. Rachel was one of the kids murdered at Columbine. She was a selfless girl who made it her business to show kindness to others. She even reached out to the extremely disturbed Eric and Dylan, who ended up being the Columbine shooters.

I really enjoyed reading this book. It offered insiders information to the Columbine killings. Rachel seemed like a person who really understood something simple, but basic to people....love makes a difference. If people take the time to show love for others, it can make this world a better place to live. The chain reaction an act of kindness can start can be far reaching.
If you need some inspiration, read this book. Rachel Joy Scott was one of the Columbine victims, but she died after admitting that Jesus Christ was her Savior. This book talks about the events after her death, and I highly recommend it to anyone!
