Remember I was crazy excited about this book?
I thought I was definitely going to love this book.

Turns out I was absolutely and 100% right. Well, kind of. I l don't think I imagined I was going to love it this much.
I read it four days ago and I still think about it and smile, but let's get down to business, here's the review:

There are times when you like a book because the characters are funny or because the story is good.

There are times when you love a book, because you relate to it or maybe because it spoke to you.

And then, there are times when a book pulls at your heartstrings and makes you different than what you were before reading it. A book that changes your life, they call it. There you'll find me did that for me.

It was so much different than any book I’ve read before. It was poignant, and captivating; lyrical and beautiful, and much more than your ordinary Young Adult book.

“To truly try means to accept God's love, his healing, to accept the world can be ugly, but your heart doesn't have to be. It takes courage, Finley the warrior. You haven't held on to your anger and bitterness in search of healing, but as a banner of your hurt. Because it's real and visible and strong, " she said. "But so is God's love and so are those arms he's holding out for you.”

“What is it you want, Finley Sinclair?"
Some peace. Some healing. To hear God's voice again.
I wanted to find my brother's Ireland. To put it into song.
And I wanted my heart back.
"I'll know it when I find it." I looked past Beckett and into the night sky. "Or when it finds me.”

“And this is Liam," Erin said with leass enthusiasm.
"I'm twelve. But I'm mature for my age. In case you felt like dating a younger man."
"Mature?" Erin snorted. "You still play with Legos."
"Just practicing for my future in engineering." His voice cracked in an unintended squeak. "Mam says one day girls are gonna fall for my intelligence." Liam wiggled those brows toward me. "Better get me while I'm still available.”

"Would that be with or without your false teeth?"
He gave me a slow wink. "They're fangs."

“If I'm going to be your bloomin' tour guide, I'm gong to do it right." He held out his hand."Do you think I'd take you somewhere dangerous?"
"You bite people for a living."
"Don't be a chicken."
"If you push me over the edge, my parents will be seriously ticked."
He grabbed my hand and pulled me along. "They'll probably send me a thank-you note.”

Secrette This book was soo amazing! I found it in a ya christian book list, normally, although I am christian, God seems forced into the story, and so, I rarely read from this genre,but this was perfect and wonderful and I wish I could read it for the first time all over again!

I know right?! I am a christian too, but I used to *never* read christian fition, but this author is wonderful she integrates God in the story so effortlessly, just like He is in real life. I love it.

Ever since I read this book I've been trying lots of christian fiction books and I'm shocked, at least all of the ones I've read are supreme! I'm in love!.
