I didn't finish this because I decided that I couldn't care less what happened to any of the characters. The dialogue is stiff and preachy, and the characters feel cardboard-y. A younger audience might appreciate it more, possibly, but I got sick of it quite quickly, though I persevered for a while after the first temptation to put it down. If you want a novel, there are many better out there. If you want a sermon, read a sermon that feels less forced and unreal. Overall, not for me, but it wasn't bad enough to get only one star.
Note that I do prefer Christian fiction, and enjoy books with sermons and inspirational dialogue, but the quality of the writing here was not such as to make either the message or the characters feel either interesting or real.
