You are immediately drawn into this book by sympathizing with Jenna as she experiences the worries of everyday life, difficult friendships, and the faith displayed despite circumstances. As you get furthur along in the story, she also has some exiting adventures!
As a homeschool mom of four, finding a great family read is always a blessing; this is definitely one of them!
Jenna wants to take her best friend, Bonnie, on the trip, but due to unforeseen circumstances, the family takes Sarah Rotham instead. Jenna and Sarah aren't friends; they don't even like each other. Jenna thinks Sarah is stuck up and Sarah thinks Jenna and her family are religious kooks. Jenna's family sees the trip out west with Sarah as an opportunity for them to show Sarah how God's love fills their hearts and guides their lives. Jenna sees the trip out west with Sarah as a burden that must be endured.
As you would expect, there are several conflicts between Sarah and Jenna and between Sarah and Jenna's parents. Jenna has to learn to control her tongue and ask for God's guidance in her dealings with Sarah.
The story is also an adventure story with lots of neat facts about the Grand Canyon and the state of Arizona. The author also uses the story to teach us about the Bible's position on creation versus the scientists' theory of evolution.
What I Like: I like adventure stories, particularly ones that take you to real places. You can learn a lot about things this way. The author has done her homework when it comes to research. She provides a bibliography at the end of the book listing all the books that were referenced throughout the text.
What I Dislike: The story is inconsistent in several places.Read more ›
