Reviews - What do our customers think?
A GOOD read. ;)  Jul 12, 2006
I've been trying to read more christian fiction lately and teen fiction in particular. I came upon this book in the library and was suprised to find out how interesting it was. I was sucked into it from the beginning which was very pleasing and amazing seeing how the first few chapters the main Chara Sierra cant even open her eyes!
The characters all felt very real to me, which was probably my favorite part seeing how I feared christianity might come off very fakey but it didn't. The author gives us a main chara who knows nothing of God and a very lovable old woman who slowly shares Grace with her roommate. And there's Sierra's younger sister of course, who will make you laugh out loud! :D
I'd hardly call it fluffy, but rather a slow and real process of a normal girl learning about God. It takes a long time till Sierra gets it. But I dont think it could have been too much better. In the end, It was slightly surprising to see that Sierra is willing to forgive her friends. At first, it seemed unreal, but actually I saw it was quite the opposite. It was REAL. Because Sierra grows tired of the lies she's become apart of, she decides to quit altogether. Although the book ends feeling slightly cut-off, it only makes me eager to read the next. An all around good read, if you're looking for christian fiction.
One thriller teens will love!  Jul 6, 2006
I finished this book just days ago. It is a great book about a girl who lands in a hospital after a car crash. With no memory of the crash she believes that it is her fault. But when she slowly regains her memory many things are changed and she learns she has been betrayed! I thought it was great and can't wait to read the rest of the series. Enjoy!
Betrayal Takes A Turn  Apr 24, 2006
This book is about an incident that happened because three friends betrayed each other. In Sierra's Story, Sierra is unconscious, but then she comes back to her life in a hospital room. Her boyfriend, Ryun Lee, and her best friend, Kenzie Parker, come to visit her and are surprised she has no memory of the car wreck they say she was in. Sierra is forced into thinking she was the driver and feels incredibly guilty because Kenzie and Ryun were in the accident as well. But then her memory of that night starts to come back and she doesn't tell anyone except her roommate, Missouri. Missouri wants her to do the right thing and turn to God, but Sierra is looking for revenge on her friends. Sierra's life will never be the same.
I liked this book because it was full of interesting surprises. It really kept me reading . I liked the whole story plot. I didn't give it a five star because I have just read better books before.
There are similar books called the Degrees of Guilt. Degrees of Guilt is about a death of a guy that everybody seems to love. Each person feels responsible for his death. The books tell how. Both series are very interesting. Plus there are two more books called Ryun's Story and Kenzie's story that are in the same series and are written in the same format.
I would recommend this book to any girl between the grades of 7 and 9. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

feel good, fluffy Christian read with no lasting value  Mar 18, 2006
It is shocking how many Christian authors that write for tweens, teens, and coeds pen books that are not the least bit convicting, that make life seem cool and of which condone our reckless behavior. Christian authors seem to forget, when it comes to people my age and younger, that their job is to convict, to change, to point to Jesus.

Sierra Reynolds is in a car accident, a car accident that her boyfriend intiated in her father's car, one of which almost killed her, endangered the life of her friend and totaled her car, and of which Ryun blames SIERRA for. So SIERRA gets hiked car insurance rates for an accident she did not cause (and its not like SHE actually pays the bills) and her dad is missing a car. Oh, and to make it all worse, her boyfriend was cheating on her with her best friend. Ouch. So what does Mackall advocate doing? For one, forgiving in two days flat, with minimal, if any help from God. Two, she recommends that you reconcile with a selfish brat who you are not supposed to turn in. In other words, lets keep this Christian boy a Christian boy. Lets not help him become a man. Lastly, she condemns turning Ryun at least, in to the police. She says in her book that had Sierra told the police the truth that nothing would have come of it. Out here they would have investigated it. From what I've seen on Kenzie in this book, she more than likely would have sided with Sierra in the end. Sierra's car insurance would have gone down; her father would have received money to replace the destroyed car. Ryun would have gotten off rather easy, yes, but Christians are supposed to obey the law. Where in the Bible does it say we are exempt from the laws of this world? This book is just flat-I never seem to get that Sierra is even remotely Christian. And at the end, for a person who was a shallow Christian to begin with, the whole process of forgiveness takes about two days for two friends who betrayed and then almost killed her. Talk about making light of the human condition. And why would she desire to reconcile with Ryun? He has been nothing but a jerk to her and will, without much further ado, pull the same bout of cheating on her friend Kenzie. What goes around comes around.

This book is one of those that exposes the sad condition of the modern Christian church, one wherein a Christian author would rather be the cool Christian teen author rather than convict. While this book does an excellent job of showing how revenge is not biblical, it skips the vital process of forgiveness and praying as to whether or not you should still be friends with a person. It also overlooks obeying the laws set forth by the police, as though, on some plane, Christians are above the law, and in situations like this there should be no consequences for people like Ryun. This book has about as much lasting value as the Gossip Girl series does-oddly enough many a Christian has likened that series to porn; but seriously, what is the point on having a book on forgiveness if it does not do its job? Mackall needs to realize, that in her efforts to be cool she comes off as annoying and worthless as Regina George's mother in Mean Girls. This book is rather worthless-it is supposed to talk of forgiveness, reconciliation, and when to tell someone. All three were made light in this book, a rather sad attempt to seem cool, at best, while forgetting the Bible and keeping up the young adult code of silence, which is the bane of the average American police officer. When things get this bad, you should talk to police, you should forgive, and that forgiveness will take some time, and, frankly, distance the one friend who brings you down like that. Awful, awful tripe. Yet another feel good message from the modern Christian church.
