While I'm enjoyed this 2009 Christy Award (Christian fiction) winner, I can't give it five stars. The subject of the book is race relations and the plot centers on teenagers. Those who claim to be Christians are racist and those who are "unchurched" live more "Christian" lives. Real world stuff, huh? One unusual twist in this book which gives it a fresh perspective is that the object of racism in this community is a family from Sri Lanka. My reservation on this book is that I never felt any desire to read it through until the end. I never felt like I couldn't wait to see what happens next. May be you will feel different; those who gave it an award must have!
