Rated 5 out of 5★ by 6reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5★ by Good Book In a world where it is often difficult to find wholesome books, this was a breath of fresh air! While this is written for a younger generation (I would say ages 12-16) I enjoyed this read. A great story line... simple, yet uplifting.This book was made into a movie in the Fall of 2008. The movie left a lot to be desired. They did not stick to the story line. They got the basic plot, but I enjoyed the book a lot more than the movie. 02/12/2009
