My thoughts:
Ok, this is the second book in the series. I was given books #1 & #2 for review. BUT the book tour for #2 is before #1....so I dunno but look for the review on #1 on July 13th. :)

The story revolves around a leather bound book that seems to talk to the person that has it. It's meant specifically for that person at that moment in their life.Stories about Yeshua, or as many of us know HIM - Jesus.

This is the story of Bryn. She was just in a car accident where when she was in the ER a dark secret is revealed. She has been the victim of her abusive boyfriend. All of a sudden everything is turned upside down. She has people threatening her and her grandmother comes to stay and take care of her. She feels like her life is spiraling out of control and she's not sure what to do. That's where the leather book comes in. She begins to read it and finds out what Jesus would do in such a situation.


It's a wonderful book. I really enjoyed reading it. It's meant for younger girls, probably ages 8 and up. It tells stories in such a way that you'll listen and receive the message. If you have a girl at home this is a definite must read for them!
