Excellent, inspiring and thought-provoking portrait of a young girl who was killed in the Columbine High School massacre. The book chronicles Rachel's spiritual journey through the trials and tribulations of adolescent life, school and family, and ultimately influenced her to be a witness at Columbine. Never preachy or overly moralistic, this book is the perfect reminder of how good always defeats evil.

A very open and honest inside look at the life of one of the Columbine High School victims. I greatly admire this family's courage in allowing others into their very private grief and devastation. May the lessons of Columbine and the pain of the families left behind never be forgotten!!

This book was really good but as I am sure you can understand it was very sad. I was captivated by the story of Columbine and being able to hear a story of one of the people invovled meant a lot to me.

Normally I wouldn't read a book with such religious views. But when Columbine happened, I will admitt I was affected, probably more so than other not having a direct connection with the children of Columbine. I dropped out of school. We had our own Trench Coat Mafia, and that was all I needed to run and run fast from a school, that not one month ago, got a bomb threat that sent the school into lockdown. The Bomb Squad was sent in students home, hours after the initial warning. I read the book in hopes of being comforted by the parents of Rachel Joy Scott, in a way it helped. They learned to foregive Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold. In a way the didn't help, I feel we need more than just the word of GOD in our schools. Many teenagers are Atheist and would rebuke the thought of bible studies or prayer be in the halls of our schools. We as parents need to moniter what are children are doing. I am one who does not blame the games, music, films or guns. It is the lack of knowing. This book was very informative as to Rachel's life, she had a relationship with god that many wish they had. The last few chapters gave you a better look at Rachel's premonitions of the doom to come. Her drawings are beautiful to say the least. Give the book a try, you may, like me find a new sence of self. It certainly makes you look differently on how you and others treat the people around you in your lives. Be it people you know or the stranger you pass on your way in to the market. Give it a try, that is all I can say.

Very good book. I hadn't really known of Rachel Scott's story in detail at all before. It was so wonderful to get to read journal entries and see the heart of a God-devoted teenager. To see how her parents have grown from her death was truly beautiful. What faith in God they have and I really admire that they clung to Christ through the loss of their daughter. I think it is amazing that she foresaw her death! She knew she didn't have long on this earth. Her closeness to Christ is what helped her have strength and courage to be loving and ready to continue on without fear. I really felt I could relate to her past a lot.
