This book is incredible. I love how real it is. I started reading and it grabbed me by the throat. Time stopped and I read. Period. I don’t care that this is called a young adult book, the suspense and drama in this book more than held my grown up attention. Nancy Rue is one awesome writer.
I was given two copies of this book, so I have one to giveaway.Â Just leave a comment and this dazzler can be yours.

8 thoughts on “Motorcycles, Sushi, & One Strange Book”
Nancy Rue has been writing for Christian teens for a long time. It would be interesting to see if her style has progressed — your review sounds like it has. In the early days there was a lot of contrived story packed around the Gospel and the flow just wasn’t natural. Our library is developing a teen/ya section (separate from the children’s section finally), and it would be nice to recommend some good Christian YA fiction to add to it.
So . . . if you don’t mind the postage, I’d love to be considered for this. Thanks!
I don’t know how I missed getting on this review. I love Nancy Rue’s books!
I meant this tour!
Oh! I have heard of these books! I’ve heard they’re fabulous! Yes! Enter me!
Melli — they are fabulous!
Mama Zen — I have read two of Rue’s books in this series and they were both outstanding.
I thought that was YOUR title, not the book’s title! I was wondering what was so strange about the book — and hey now I want to read this one.
