's review

really liked it
bookshelves: ya

More substantive than I was expecting, this novel addresses differences of faith, the propensity towards all-or-nothing thinking, the tendency of some atheists and other secular types to be holier-than-thou and dismissive of faith, and the nature and difficulty of forgiveness. Not without YA silliness, but overall it's solid and thought-provoking.

One downside is that the homeschooled kid is fearful, ultra-religious, spiteful, and close-minded, which stands out as something of a lazy caricature among a cast of characters who otherwise are allowed to be individuals (while still being characters in a YA novel, of course).

Also, the cover made me crave toast.
