16 year old Luke is having a hard time coping with the idea that he is a bestselling author of a book. The book titled Hallelujah was something that he wrote at Bible camp, it was never meant to be a national hit. Now he has to go on a mini book tour to promote Hallelujah. He soon finds himself on an unplanned road trip with his brother, his brothers girlfriend and her sister Fran. Fran, the girl that Luke used to love, the girl that seems to have lost her way. Adding to this uncomfortable dynamic in the car is the fact that Luke’s fans took his book a bit too literally, fans who do not seem to have any problem judging his actions, people who what to know exactly who Fran is.

Not quite as good as The Five Flavors of Dumb, this is still an overall decent read. The story falls a little flat with its main character Luke who is a bit of a wiener but manages to face up to some of the more lame aspects of his personality. The Christian values are not too preachy. The book even highlights some of the Christian (or at least Luke’s) hypocrisy about love acceptance.
