Young Reader Reaction

This is an inspiring book. Each chapter is well rounded and the stories are of the simpler nature, helping for a relaxing read. I found each story helpful and amusing, quite often reminded of personal experiences through junior high school. I found the flow of each chapter easy to follow and think through while reading. The direction toward religion is very strong and guiding. I am not personally religious, but I found the verses, prayers, and the religious aspect of the book very soothing. It brought another religious standpoint to my attention and raised my understanding for Christians and Christianity. Although there were spots where it was hard to bridge the religion gap, I felt that reading this advice book was definitely worth every minute. I would definitely advise it to my younger Christian friends to read.
