Ken Kuhlken's MIDHEAVEN is narrated by Jodi McGee, a high-school student who is having an affair with her English teacher, while enjoying time alone in her beautiful Lake Tahoe surroundings and struggling inside herself with spiritual issues. Jodi is torn between worldliness and commitment to Christianity.
Her relationships with others are a vital part of her maturing. Her best friend Charley provides support, despite his penchant for getting into trouble. Her relationship with her teacher Phillip provides trouble of a different sort.
MIDHEAVEN offers sharp characterizations and beautiful descriptions of the wilderness that Jodi loves. Christian readers will be involved by Jodi's inner struggle, while those just looking for an engrossing coming-of-age story will be amply rewarded.

In Ken Kuhlken’s Midheaven, seventeen-year-old Jodi McGee finds herself torn between the wilder urges of youth and a call to find peace in the Christian faith. Meanwhile, she falls for Philip, her high school English teacher. Then Charlie Walker, a boy she has loved since childhood, returns from fighting the Vietnam War.
Her story plays out all around Lake Tahoe, a place about which Mark Twain wrote “This is the air the angels breathe.” From the shoreline casinos to deep in the surrounding mountain wilderness, Jodi, Philip, and Charlie do battle against angels, demons, and their own confounded hearts.
Midheaven, told with wit and sensitivity, is for readers from young adult on, especially for those who sympathize with the struggle to find one’s place in a mysterious world.
