Item Description...
Mark Cloud is back in Fred, Texas but Fred is not the same. The town drunk has got religion. One of Mark's classmates has started spitting out scriptures like a gumball machine. But more drastic things are in store for this small East Texas town. And for Mark. Once again a forgotten book buried on a dusty library shelf incites revolution. Mark begins to ask troublesome questions. Mark begins a pilgrimage that challenges the open-mindedness of his father and the forbearance of the deacons. As his answers lead him further down the path of least expectance, he ultimately finds himself facing the fear that haunts every PK: I could cost my dad his job. Mark must choose between remaining faithful to his understanding of the gospel or appeasing the prejudices of those with the power to make his family pay for his decisions.

A Perfect Sequel  Aug 5, 2006
Sequels are rarely as good as their predecessors. This sequel is even better than the first book, Welcome to Fred. And WTF was great. This one has more laughs, more heart, more insight - I couldn't put it down. They say a good writer gets the reader so engrossed that he doesn't even know he's reading. This is that book.
Engaging, enjoyable look at small town teen growing in faith  May 26, 2006
Living with Fred by Brad Whittington is the terrific sequel to Welcome to Fred. We've met Mark Cloud, son of a Baptist preacher in small town Texas as he tries to fit in with not just the world around him, but also God's world. Whittington does a wonderful job of getting into the head of the average teenager. Events like getting asked out by Jolene or a conversation with his father are major dramas described with intricate detail. Major events in the world at large like a murder trial or the destruction of a neighbor's life are treated with less importance and only as they relate to Mark. Sounds like the average teenager to me! But Mark starts to mature after he reads In His Steps and starts to ask himself What Would Jesus Do? That question leads him to some hard decisions and ultimately to learn more about himself and forgiveness. Whittington's wit again shines through in Mark's outlook on girls. This book is truly enjoyable to read. Some Christian fiction is hard to read, but this is a book I couldn't wait to sit down with and smiled often while I read it. Escape to Fred, here I come!
Refreshing  Dec 7, 2005
Very few books live up to the cover. This one will suprise you. I can't wait to read "Escape from Fred". Be sure to read "Welcome to Fred", the first in this series.
Watermark: High Tide  Jun 28, 2005
Like Welcome to Fred, reading Living with Fred has raised the bar for all other literature that I plan to read next.
Thus far, "Living..." has proven to be a hard act to follow for my summer reading list. Reading the last paragraph was much like bidding a close friend farewell, only made slightly less bittersweet with promises of one last visit with Mark Cloud in the approaching third ( and sadly, last) installment.

Loyal Fred-onians will find LIVING WITH FRED a perfect cure for that homesick gnaw they experienced at the last sentence in "Welcome to Fred", while those who have never had the great fortune to kick back on one of Fred's dusty porches will find it the perfect summer get-a-way ( in which case I reccoment BOTH books)

Furthermore- if you are in any way, shape or form a PK- this is required therapy for your soul :)

"There's no place like home....or Fred!"
Laughing with Fred  Feb 14, 2005
Whittington broke onto the scene with his award-winning debut, "Welcome to Fred." Quirky, honest, and wise, that book served notice that this guy had stories worth telling to a grand audience.

Hopefully, with the release of "Living of Fred," that audience will grow. The book's central character, Mark Cloud, is a northern kid, stuck in eastern Texas, carrying the burden of being a pastor's son. He's disdained by Deacon Fry, he's shunned by the local hooligans, and he's buddies with a suspected murderer. That's not enough? He's also smart, funny, spiritual, and someone we can all relate to in some way. He wants to fit in. He wants to know God's will. He doesn't always get the girl--but then again...

"Living with Fred" teased smiles and tears from my face, but, mostly, it got me laughing. It's a book to savor, a book to speed through. Underline your favorite parts, memorize your favorite lines, but don't pass it by. Brad Whittington has more stories to tell, and Mark Cloud will be back in book three.

That's good news ya'll.
