Reviews - What do our customers think?
Great treatment of hypocrisy  Jul 19, 2004
I loved this book, but am not as great with words as others. Here's a rather well-balanced review I read on the internet from a reviewer by the name of Phil Wade

Terry Anderson, the twelve-year-old narrator of this book, lives in a comical family, which, if they weren't fictional, would go toward proving that comedy comes out of pain. His mother deteriorates slowly from an incurable disease. His father makes little money as a mechanic. His oldest brother smokes, perpetually trying to quit and feeling cold shoulders from their legalistic church.

None of that works to build Terry's ego, but neither do his own decisions. So when Terry discovers a jackpot which could turn his hard, North Dakota winter into one long Christmas, he does what any pre-teen might do. He fills his pockets with candy and lies about the money. Of course, the longer he delays his confession, the more trouble risks.

Speaker and Author Phil Callaway is a humor-monger, who has written non-fiction on laughter and Christian living. Thus, this book is funny. Not Wodehouse funny, but light-hearted, warm, and occasionally funny enough to laugh out loud. The back cover boasts of colorful characters, and they do raise their heads here and there, but more interesting than Mayberry-style locals are the fine, upstanding hypocrites who attend Anderson's church. Callaway doesn't refrain from briefly describing a few people whose spiteful whispers surprised me in their indifference to the pain of fellow believers who were in the room though out of earshot.

Some heavy-handed application does sneak in. The town is named Grace because the story is about grace. There's even a little story to the town's naming-pioneers, Indians, and a miracle, you know. But Growing Up is an enjoyable book which should find a good audience. Callaway says he is working on a sequel.

A Favorite Summer Read  Jun 24, 2004
The eight people in our reading group chose this as our book for the month of June and we have been engaged in fascinating conversations about our growing up years as a result. We even wrote the author and he kindly sent us discussion questions. I have never read a book twice before, but I will be reading this one for a third time at the beach this summer. The memories it evokes are worth savoring, laughing at, and sometimes crying over. This receives my highest recommendation!
A waste of time  May 17, 2004
I didn't finish this book, just skimmed over the last half. After the narrator found the money, the story really bogged down and became unbelievable. As for the humor, I didn't find much of anything above junior high level.

The coverage of Huntington's disease is one of the better ones I have seen in fiction; it was generally clear and factual, but I really couldn't see how this issue pertained to the rest of the story.

Masterful Mischief!  Mar 30, 2004
This is simply put the very best novel I have read in years! I am so excited to pass it along to family and friends. I have never read a book which combines so much humor, adventure, romance, and suspence with an unmistakable lesson of God's love and grace. This is truly a gem. Terry Anderson, the hero of the book, cannot help remind you of the child you always wanted to be or the friend you always wanted to have. Strangely, as Terry gives in to the temptation offered him, you find yourself wanting him to do the right thing, yet dreading that he will. The author has masterfully woven a story that continues its mischievous path for as long as the reader can stand, and until we are glad he chooses to turn from his own way. That is a delicate balance, but it is achieved here. I shall be checking out Callaway's non-fiction work for sure.
Please disregard the humorless reviewer  Mar 9, 2004
I couldn't help laughing when I read the review stating that humor is out of place in a Christian novel. Hello! I enjoyed this book immensely. In fact, I took it to the bathtub with me intending to read the first few pages and ended up reading the first six chapters! The very cornerstone of this book is that God loves the unlovely, forgives the unforgiveable, and redeems lost souls like me! Grace is the theme. The writing is excellent. I'll be buying more copies.
