I choose to read this book just out of the blue, since I haven’t read children to young teen book for a long time. Sure the cover was creative, simple yet cute, but from the looks of it, the story dwells on younger or coming-to-age teens. Fortunately, I found this book easy to read and relate to even if I’m no longer on the ages 7 and up category..:D

Waves of a Light is the third book in the Faithgirlz!/From Sadie's Sketchbook series. But don’t worry, even I who hadn’t read the first two books fo

This book was an amazing journey for one of my favorite characters, Sadie Douglas. As a young teenage girl, she’s dealing with so much more than people realize. She’s tough. She tries to handle it all on her own. It doesn’t work so well for her. With everything swirling around her, chaos nipping at every moment of her life, and very little peace to be had, Sadie definitely hits a breaking point in this book. And who can blame her?

What I Loved: I wasn't so sure I'd really like this coming-of-age story, but I was wrong, as I found myself really really in-like with Waves of Light! It was so full of wonder, questions, hope, faith, trials, love and friendship...all for this spunky 'n' artsy young girl named Sadie to sift her way through and draw closer to God and her loved ones all at the same time.

The characters were so alive. The writing was beautifully vivid. And the story was super excellent.

You know, I really wish that
