Book Description

Contemporary Christian Fiction.

It seems to David that both Greg and Laci are a bit . . . out there. Between each of them constantly chopping off their hair for charity and Greg's clandestine hand signals, neither of them seem likely to develop friendships with reserved young David. Despite their differences, however, all three grow closer to each other and - as they do - David grows closer to God as well. Nearing adulthood, David finds himself content in every way . . . but when tragedy strikes, David must struggle to find his way back to God.

Best-selling and top-rated, Chop, Chop was the winner of an Honorable Mention at the Blue Ridge Mountains Christian Writers Conference.


Editorial Reviews

Review

"I loved this book. I will say it again. I loved this book. I was moved to tears more than once . . . It is not often that I find a Christian book that has so much depth. This book deals with love, faith, death, forgiveness, and the pains of going from childhood to adulthood." - Tiffany A. Harkleroad - Tiffany's Bookshelf

"Chop, Chop is a gem! Cronk weaves strands of humor, realism and heart-wrenching emotion into David's story so well that I read the book in one sitting. Readers will be touched again and again as they read about David and his friends. What amazing characters. Highly recommended." - Jill Williamson BlogSpot

"The writing is extremely easy to follow and read. It at first seems to be just a casual read, but by the end of the book, you find that the characters have become your family." - Kristin Schmitt, The Maine Stream

"It took no time at all for David to win my heart. I especially like David because his personality was like that of an old man in a little body. He wasn't particularly charismatic or fun, and that made him still charming all the same. Of course, the begining of the novel leads to the understanding that something awful happened in David's life, so you might read this novel feeling a little tense, waiting for the hammer to fall. And it does fall. There are tears, but there is also so much laughter, and when the novel ends, so much hope." -RemainInHisLove.com

5.0 out of 5 stars A Jewel February 1, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I found this book completely by accident in June of this year. I was over my "allowed" Kindle Budget but I needed something to read. I couldn't pay to download anything else that month, so I started to peruse the free books. Before Chop-Chop, all the free books I downloaded had ended up abandoned on my Kindle, deemed unworthy and too bad to get through by me, the book snob. I did not have high hopes. However, this book had 5 star reviews and lots of them. And a few 3,2, and 1 star reviews mixed in too. The bad reviews gave me hope. I say that because I don't trust books that have all glowing reviews. I don't believe that there is anyway everyone is going to agree on a book, and I feel like if a book has all 5 star glowing reviews someone is either paying for reviews or has a lot of family and friends who want to help bolster the books ratings.

SO, I downloaded the free book and I started to read. I read fast. I devoured it. The dialogue was the most suprising to me. It was so real! I was sure she (L.N) was a he, because the narrating character of David sounded so believable to me. It took me back to my early teen years, growing up in youth group, and that made me happy. I laughed AND cried with the characters. It was a joy. It also reminded me a bit of another favorite series of mine "Yada-Yada Prayer Group" by Neta Jackson.

I've read some of the bad reviews on here who say this book is meant for the younger reader. It was an easy read, yes. But also uplifting and full of faith.I am not a fan of "cheesy" books or "fluffy" reads, and I wouldn't put Chop-Chop in either of those categories. It was just real.

5.0 out of 5 stars I loved it.... November 14, 2011
Format:Paperback
For as long as he can remember, David has been friends with Laci. Even when she does things that annoy him, like chop off her long hair to send to a charity that makes wigs for cancer patients. David things this is the stupidest thing, until Greg moves to town. Greg becomes friends with both Laci and David, and a strong bond, as well as strong faith, develops between the three of them. When the tragedy strikes, with that bond, and that faith, be enough to see David through?

I loved this book. I will say it again. I loved this book. I was moved to tears more than once during the reading of this book. It is not often that I find a Christian book that has so much depth. This book deals with love, faith, death, forgiveness, and the pains of going from childhood to adulthood. We watch David, Laci, and Greg take a tremendous journey, and I felt as though I was taking it with them.

The characters in this book are really well developed, I think in part because we hear the story being told by David. To hear a character's thoughts allows the reader to connect with the character, and I felt very connected to David. I loved seeing that these kids were not perfect. As Christians, we often put a lot of pressure on our youth to be perfect, so I find it encouraging that these characters sometimes struggled with their faith, or with doing the right thing; young readers need to see characters in these types of situations.

The book is highly emotional, particularly toward the end. It was actually quite difficult for me to watch these characters go through the devastating event they went through, but it is a situation that is relevant and could have been taken from the headlines over the past few years. I think this book is an excellent read, to adult or young adult readers, and can actually be quite a source of comfort. As this is the first in a series, I can honestly say, I cannot wait for the second.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best series I've ever read! September 21, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I just finished the entire series and I miss these people already! I laughed out loud and cried. But it's more than just a series with characters that you cherish, it's written with such loving and warm faith I genuinely desire to be a better person, a more faithful Christian. I can't endorse this series more. I real a lot and never a book a second time, but this entire series I will most certainly read again.

5.0 out of 5 stars non religious reader August 17, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Ok...the fact is though I do not consider myself "religious"... I have always respected people who have deep beliefs. That find comfort and peace in those beliefs. That being said... I enjoyed this book more than I expected. I would recommend it anyone no matter what their beliefs are. The characters are well written and are easy to connect with. The story line is easy fallowing and not overly preachy. It is about human experiences that most can relate to in their own lives. In the end it is life lifting and leaves the reader with a hopeful look for future generations.

5.0 out of 5 stars Read the book! October 18, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Truthfully, I bought this book because it was free. It turned out to be one of the best books I've read in a long time. I am invested in the families and their journey in life. It served as inspiration to me to strive for an even closer walk with the Lord. I've read all 7 of them and I'm anxiously awaiting book 8. Read this today!!
