I read this book as a fellow Aggie and a member of the College Station community who was profoundly affected by the Bonfire tragedy. Janice Kerlee's telling of Tim and the events surrounding his death are very touching and parts of the book are emotionally difficult to read.

The content of the book is not truly directed to grieving parents. However, the book certainly offers plenty of Christian-based comfort and hope for all. The last two sections of the book are especially thought provoking.
