This book is a must read for those who are trying to understand rebellious kids. There are so many factors in a child's growth that cause their behavior to be bad, good, or indifferent. Kevin Dominic has written a novel that understands these factors; whether or not these are his life experiences doesn't matter, but he understands them better than most and is able to put the story in to a fantasy-novel form. The star character of the book shares his feelings about many things including the God who seems not to care.
My favorite quote from his book is: "The fact that there are Christians who do not follow God's commands does not mean that God, Jesus, the Bible, or Christianity must be lies designed to milk the public out of their cash. People are imperfect. We make mistakes. We make bad decisions. We don't always do what is smart, fair, or right. We are imperfect beings, and we always will be imperfect beings. None of that has any bearing on whether or not God and His Son are real or whether or not He loves us."
His imagination is wonderful and had me believing in time travel. This is not only a great Christian testimony, but a heart-breaking story of an abused child and the child's understanding of "why" bad things are happening to him.
I highly recommend this book, many of us have been though various abuses and many have not, but we can all understand our fellow human beings better after reading this novel.
