Throughout Kara's story, she gets acquainted with God and what He can do for her in terms of friendship and love. She begins to trust in Him and even is saved by asking Him into her heart. Though she still struggles with that self-doubt, as we all do at times, she knows now that God will always be her best friend and He will never let her down, as Jordan so cruelly did.
I thought this was a great book for older middle readers and younger teens. The storyline is simple, yet emotional and it is very easy to connect with Kara. I love Melody Carlson as a writer and this first series book is spot on.
