This was a heart-felt book. I lived in Colorado Springs, CO. at the time of the shootings. It was the first real big school shooting epic. It was such a culture shock and it sent terror waves through the entire state of Colorado as well as the nation. Being so close to it was even harder to conceive the elements of horror. Now, it has become an awful epidemic. It's devasting and so senseless.

I do appreciate the Christian slants to these brave children.

Anybody who liked this book, should really read "Rachels' Tears."
This book is even more poignant. Now, she had real true faith, because she lived it. When you LIVE the faith, it is called Emmuna in Hebrew.Hebraic words have a verbal conactation where English has a noun emphasis. Emmuna implies "Doing Faith," While Cassie humanly struggled with God. Rachel was on a totally higher level with her relationship with the Almighty Father. Rachel had developed and continued to have Emmuna. Where Cassie struggled with faith.(Which is the beginning of developing Emmuna.) There is also a disc available, that I recommend viewing after reading the book.
