From the Back Cover

Rachel Scott was a typical teenage girl who was  incredibly dedicated to following and serving Christ.  Though she was mocked for her beliefs, at times doubted her faith, and constantly struggled with personal issues every teenager faces, she remained faithful to God.  Then on April 20, 1999, at Columbine High School, she was killed while affirming that faith.

My Review

I was at home the day this happened and of course, I like everyone else was glued to the TV.  I just couldn’t fathom who anyone could do this.  I couldn’t imagine how the families involved were feeling.  This book was written by the parents of Rachel Scott.  I can’t imagine how they were able to write this book because they had to relive the tragedy but their faith kept them going.  It was amazing to see how a 16 yr old girl was so faithful to God.  Her journals were amazing.  These journals gave her parents the insight to what she was feeling.   Due to her faith in God, she had this innermost feeling that something was going to happen to her.  It was so sad to see that her feelings were right.  I was held on to every word throughout the book.  I even tried to put myself in their shoes and it was hard.  There were times throughout the book that I started to cry.  I felt that I was right their with them.  I give them a lot of credit for going out and spreading Rachel’s amazing story.

I rate this an A – Excellent
