This was a good story about relying on God when you don't know where to turn.
I felt like this was written by Mary Catherine Gallager from the movie "Superstar". It's definitely a book with "positive moral values". Aside from having the author's Christian beliefs shoved down my throat the entire time, the book was just ok. The character development wasn't very good and the plot was boring and predictable.
