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. This book focused more on how you can "pick up Rachel's torch" and become more like her—kind and compassionate. It offered tips on putting others first and seeking out those in need. Not to say that I didn't like this book, but I thought it was repetitive. Darrell took, literally took, many of the passages f ...more
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.

Rachel, you have inspired me. This is a truly inspir ...more
A amazing book that was inspiring
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 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!
This book is better than Rachel's has less religious undertones. This book is by the parents of Columbine victim Rachel Scott. Very moving and eye opening.
Actress Ginger Rogers said, "When two people love each other, they don't look at each other, they look in the same direction."
Very moving..Rachel is a role-model for me because of her faith, walk in the path of kindness and start a ripple effect
