Jared Hills has been haunted by the car crash every night. It was the night everything changed. It was the night Leisel died.
Now, two years later, as Jared reflects on his life, he can’t help but wonder at the chain reaction of choices that led him to this: a black nametag and a calling to serve as a missionary of God.
It had been Leisel who had first sparked Jared’s interest in the gospel. She and Rob had befriended Jared early on in his senior year of high school. But even as all of Rob’s choices seem to be leading him away from the Church, all of Jared’s choices were drawing him closer to it–and to Leisel. And on the night of the horrible crash, Jared finally understands how life-changing the consequences of a choice can be. (Summary taken from Amazon)
This novel is the story of two friends, Jared and Rob, and how their lives are thrown into divergent paths when their mutual friend, Leisel, is killed in a reckless car accident.
No “goody-goody” tale of God and glory, the author depicts real problems and gives an inside glimpse of church-centerd family life so seldom portrayed in teen fiction… The story is memorable.
