Kicking Eternity by Ann Lee Miller
This book follows the lives of four young adults. There is Raine who has always dreamed of going to Africa. Her heart is for the orphans there but is her motive to escape from under her dad's thumb or her brother's dependency upon her? She is teaching Bible at the Triple S Christian Camp for the summer. When her new friends tell her she hasn't experienced life being home schooled and not out in the world, her faith is challenged. Will she wait to hear what God desires for her or will her physical desires rule her decisions?

Drew has been living the past years in a blur. He has lived waiting for the love of his life to walk back into it. Drew is the Rec Leader at the camp. He remembers the younger Raine who has now become a beautiful young woman. Drew struggles with dealing with the past and deciding on the future. Will the Lord give him a wife and family? Will his old flame return and if so, is it what he still wants?

Cal is from the family where dad is a preacher and brother runs the camp. He is rebelling against giving into God. When he sees the beautiful Raine, something inside him wants to become a better person for her. But is he being led back to God or only trying to meet human expectations?

Aly has been a lost little girl for some time. Her goody two shoes roommate wants to be friends but what does Raine know about life? Aly's dad has been out of the picture for years so she's replaces her dad with other guys to fill her need to be loved, yet she always ends up feeling empty. When she realizes there is one guy that 's always been there for her....and has cared for her....it's too late. He is in love with someone else. And the big question she asks herself is, "Can God forgive someone as sinful as me?

Very clean romance with a unique love triangle that kept me wondering far into the story who Rainey would choose. This story is set in a bible camp in Florida where Rainey is a bible teacher as she waits to go to Africa to be a missionary. Drew, the activities director and a childhood friend, teases her; Cal, the art teacher and a rebel to the Christian values his parents espoused, draws Rainey in with his handsome looks and charm. Issues brought up in this book are Christian values, meth use and addiction, and hard family relationships when dealing with a user. I enjoyed this story a lot. It was well written, fast paced and I learned a lot from it.

This book was well written and very engaging. It's a Christian book (although not preachy!) with a clear moral message made very believable. The main characters were well defined and easy to relate to. I enjoyed this story and think it would be especially meaningful for teenage readers. Adult readership may like to see more intense background detail in future books featuring different age ranges. The author has a gift for making the characters come to life and leaves you wanting more!

Set at a Christian summer camp, Kicking Eternity is the story of four young adult counselors, Raine, Drew, Cal, and Aly.

Raine is the main main character. It's really her story we read. Her mission has always been to go to Africa. Obstacles stand in her way. She needs to find God's true path for her and go where He wants her.

Drew, her closest friend, is still in love with his old girlfriend. He believes it's God's will for the two to be together. It's his mission to find out the truth about Sam and where his friendship with Raine fits in all this.

Cal is a brother to Jesse the camp director, which is how he got the job since he does not identify himself as Christian. An artist, he falls for Raine and wants to be what she wants in a man. Can he be true to himself and be what Raine wants?

Aly is good friends with Cal, but how far does this friendship go? She's also roommates with Raine during summer camp, but finds the two are different. Is Raine annoying or is there something deeper? Does Aly want to find something deeper or keep to her boyfriend bouncing ways?

This is the summer for all four. They are tempted and tested, growing to find who they really are and what really matters in life.

It's undoubtly Christian, but I felt it was too in-your-face. It didn't feel quite as genuine as other Christian novels I've read. Maybe I'm just being cynical. I am too cynical for my own good sometimes. Christians are to pray, I know, but it just felt they did it too much, like a "get out of jail free" card. But, overall, it was a good young adult story.

I think I got this book for free on Amazon, and I've had it on my kindle for a year or so. It kept my interest, but it was a bit far-fetched in a lot of ways. Over the course of a summer, people fall in love and declare their love for one another, and discuss marriage, make very serious career decisions, forgive some major hurts, and all of them grow closer to Jesus, even the serious objectors.
I am all for people finding Jesus, and love and success for that matter. I can't even imagine determining who God wants them to marry and actually committing to that over the course of the summer. But this book was all about the happy endings. Not the worst critique, really.
I think it would be a good book for a younger Christian reader.
One strong positive: The characters pray a lot together for all sorts of things. And this reminded me to pray more for all things that I worry about. (Phillipians 4)
