If you have already seen the movie, read the book too. I honestly think you will be glad you did. If you haven't seen the movie then read the book first. You will have a better understanding of what is going on especially in the beginning of the story.
Bottom line it is a great story to get across the message of how abortions can change peoples lives and the deep seated damage it can cause.
October Baby not only is something I can grasp onto knowing I'm not alone, but the messages found inside encourage me to look to my future,
"I'm alive for a reason."
The book itself is written so amazingly, and the story is 'moving' at a comfortable pace for me, unlike other books that go to slow, or to fast.
My emotions were most definitely matched at times or even more extreme than Hannah's was. At certain times If I was in that situation, which is probable, I definitely would of lashed out to her parents, and pull the 'I'm-not-a-minor-anymore' stunt.
I most definitely recommend this book to ALL adopted teens or even adults out there!
What a beautiful book with massive messages.
Jason and Hannah have been best friends since childhood and life takes them through many journeys until they figure out what God had in store for them.
Grace and Jacob took Hannah and her brother in when they were abandoned by their birth mother. Unfortunately, Hannah's brother only survived a couple months due to an abortion that wasn't successful. They kept all these secrets from Hannah only trying to keep the pain away from her. When she finally finds out she is adopted and that her whole life is a lie, she sets out on a journey to find her truth.
God works in mysterious ways and as long as we keep our faith in him no matter the outcome, he will lead us through the darkest valleys.
The characters are so realistic and believable. I had never given any thought to abortion survivors, and learned a great deal from reading October Baby. I am anxious now to get the movie and see it played on film.
I was especially touched as I read the notes about how this film and book came into being.
It is a remarkable story, and I will definitely be recommending it to others to read. I belong to a ladies' Christian book club and plan to recommend it as a book we read and discuss. I appreciate the discussion questions at the end.
Thank you, Amazon, for bringing this book to my attention!
