Item Description...
Overview
Shane Everything he does seems to work out wrong. He's failing his classes, about to be fired from his part-time job, and barely speaking to his parents. Then there's the real problem-his twin brother... Sandy Everything he does seems to be right. He's a star athlete, student president, and parents' dream child, with top marks, a great future, and many good friends. He'd never hang out with someone like... Marietta A real looker, she's been Shane's girl-friend, but since Shane's dad took away his car, she's been unhappy. Maybe Shane should take a second look at... Janice She's coming after Shane like a magnet to a fridge door. But is something fishy here? Just ask... Ernie He's a loner who claims to be Shane's only real friend. But will he hang in when the real trouble hits? What do you do when everything blows up in your face and you can't even trust your friends and family? How do you decide what you really want? Most important, how do you learn to trust yourself? Eighteen-year-old Shane Donahue can't relate to his twin brother or his parents, doesn't trust the guys he hangs out with or his girlfriend, and is failing his classes at school. The whole situation makes Shane feel so helpless he's considering life on the streets or suicide. He decides he has nothing to lose by asking God to help him try to get his life back on track, but his difficulties only increase. His father becomes angry when Shane goes to church, his friends attack him because they think he's turned on them, and his brother dates his ex-girlfriend! But that's nothing compared to Shane's being arrested for robbery and assault. However, in the midst of his troubles, Shane finds out who he is and discovers hope for the future. The book is based on Proverbs 17:17. "A friend helps at all times and a brother in time of trouble."

More About N. J. Lindquist
N  J  Lindquist I’m an award-winning-author, a motivational speaker, and an empowering teacher who loves seeing people living joyful and meaningful lives. God has been my best friend for as long as I can remember, and I can’t imagine not having him in my life. My published work includes two bestselling inspirational anthologies (Hot Apple Cider and A Second Cup of Hot Apple Cider) that I co-edited and published; two mainstream adult mysteries (Shaded Light and Glitter of Diamonds) which are now being sold as e-books under my new alter ego, J. A. Menzies; five coming-of-age inspirational novels teenage boys and girls love; three discipleship manuals for teens; a Christmas play; and dozens of columns and articles. I’m currently working on a memoir, a third mystery, and a fantasy for ‘tweens. I’m also the co-founder and former executive director of The Word Guild, a Canadian association of writers and editors who are Christian. From 2002 until 2012, I also directed Write! Canada, the largest Canadian conference for writers and editors who are Christian, and the flagship conference of The Word Guild. I do a lot of speaking on a variety of topics for both adults and teens, including creativity, prayer, leadership, and making disciples. I’ve also been teaching writers in both Canada and the United States since 1992, and have a website for writers. I’m a member of the Writers Union of Canada, Sisters in Crime, Crime Writers of Canada, Advanced Writers and Speakers Association, and The Word Guild. My hobbies include reading, listening to music (esp. country), watching baseball, basketball, curling, and ultimate frisbee, and doing jigsaw puzzles.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Right on Target  Feb 11, 2006
Author Nancy Lindquist roped me in because Shane Donahue could live in my own home. Fired from a job, pulled into conflict with his twin, and tied up in complicated relationships, Shane stays in hot water. When the heat turns up, he comes out fighting with the wrong weapons. Slowly some light seeps into the picture when his friend Ernie looks to God for answers and invites Shane to do the same. The story flowed so well for me, I couldn't put it down. Meet Shane and his friends; any teen can relate!
 
For All Ages  May 31, 2000
This book is excellent for all ages! Especially if you've ever felt like the black sheep of the family, or have been on the outside looking in. If you feel like you don't fit in and are trying to find a way to fit in--somewhere. Or even if you feel like you're on top of it all and have the world by the tail. Think again! This book shows the struggles that many face at some time in their lives. But most importantly, it shows there's a way to overcome lifes most difficult situations--even the stress of always being put on a pedastal and having to maintain that level of perfection, in order to please others. Nancy shows how you can have faith to overcome the difficult circumstances in your life--but that it doesn't come about by sitting around and waiting for it to come to you. In the beginning of the story, Shane is dealing with the difficulties of measuring up and failing to do so. We see how he finds the answers to his questions and works hard to overcome his difficulties in spite of opposition. I found myself pulling for him and cheering him on. You'll love this book!
 
Finally, a Book Teens Will Be Glad They Read  May 20, 2000
I don't need to tell you how difficult it is to find a book, any book, teens will read. It's even more difficult to find one with a Christian perspective which they will read. Well, IN TIME OF TROUBLE, remedies that.

This book is a clever combination of an appealing title, an attractive cover, a motley cast of characters, a riveting story line and best of all, an inviting no-nonsense Christian solution to teen problems. And one more plus; all that is available in a very affordable paperback. This book is too good to pass up!
