This book has some good nuggets of information in it. I think it depends on the reader though. I could see how the author was trying to get people to think more openly about accepting everyone into a church and not maintaining the snobby church atmosphere. However, sometimes he came across as condoning or giving an excuse for young people's spiritual immaturity and other flaws.

Overall, a book worth reading.

Very sad...it's astonishing that a human could do this to other humans, especially children.

A fictional story that helps to explain the things that go wrong when people try to work as a team. After the story is done, there is extra explanation of what went wrong and how it could have been fixed.

Overall, a decent book that gives a good pyramid setup of things teams need to learn about reaching their goal - as well as what their goals might be.

There is a poem for everyday, plus an author description and how you can see God in their work and the world around you. Kind of like a devotional.

Warped is the only word that can sum up this book. It is a memoir - so the author is writing about part of his own life...and what a messed up part it is! If you've seen the movie, you've seen nothing, until you read the book.

Personally, I thought it was weird. But, some would like it just because it's H.G. Wells

The main character finds herself falling into other people's dreams - without wanting to. She starts falling into a loner's scary dreams of murder and doesn't know if she should be afraid of him or fall for him like she is. Especially after he starts hanging out with other girls at parties and she hears rumors of him dealing drugs. One thing is for sure, his dreams are scary and he seems to be living them out!

Okay story. A married Christian woman, with two children, is raped and becomes pregnant. She gives the child up for adoption only to have her daughter come back to her years later when the adoptive parents die. It was an okay story to read.
