Ugh. Okay, I know that I am in the minority in my feelings of this book. But, if I was the type of person to put a book down, I would have done so with this book. While I don't mind there being religious aspects in a book, I don't like it to be thrown in my face on every other page. And I feel this book did just that. There was so much talk of what God/Jesus wanted for Riley and Attie, and the whole Jesus being in jeans in a tshirt talking one-on-one with Attie and her talking back was just too much.

The plotline was good. I liked Attie's growth. It seemed like how a real teenager dealing with what she went through would be like.

And the characters were just okay too. I liked Attie. I felt for her and felt sympathetic for her. But I couldn't decide how I felt about Riley. Sometimes I kept thinking "aww, so sweet" but then other times I kept thinking "blah, too soft." I did really like Attie's friends thought--Anne and Tess and Tammy. They seemed real and sweet.

I dunno. This book just turned me off. I found myself rolling my eyes through a lot of it.

Stefne Miller Thanks for pushing through and taking the time to read and review the book, even though it wasn't to your liking. I appreciate all feedback - whether positive or negative. I believe it will only help me as a writer and if nothing else, help toughen me up a little!!! LOL!
Thanks again!
