Christian Contemporary Fiction

This was a very good story. A high school student gets arrested and placed in a foster family after some time in juvenile detention. He finally gets a fresh start in life where he's supported and encouraged, but his path is far from easy. He's dealing with race issues, bullying, building his faith, making right decisions, peer pressure, dating, compassion, dating, and responsibility for his younger siblings. Janice writes an endearing story for people of all ages. She spent way too much time on lists of menu items, gits, and other unnecessary lists. While the narrator was pretty good, his sound quality suffered a lot. Each chapter seemed to get more tunnel sounding and echo like. I would recommend the book still, though, because theres a lot to enjoy!
