I love, love, love, LOVE this book! Seriously, I can't say how much I love it!! It's a really good book. There are a couple scenes that are graphic/violent, but other then that it is defiantly a book I would recommend. I love how it's the whole family involved throughout the book, the strong christian values/message that's upheld throughout the book, and the father's guidance through the entire book. Anyway, I just can't say how much I love it! ;)
