who thinks he’s found The One
‘cause she won’t get out of his head.
But a confounding thought seals their fate
An old question he amends to
“How would Jesus date?”
Through many a trial and tribulation
from pot to bullies to strained family relations
Mark finds his inner muse
penning postcards for others to use
finding real what he’d only assumed
“Love alters not with his brief hours and weeks,
But bears it out even to the edge of doom.”
Everyone should visit Fred at least once in their life—not necessarily the town itself, but the books that Whittington sets in that singular locale. Fred provides the perfect backdrop for teenage Preacher's Kid Mark Cloud to work out his faith in fear and trembling (especially near the pharisaical Deacon Fry).
This is Whittington's fourth trip back to Fred, and it's a worthwhile road to take. For this reviewer, the book really picked up steam after Cloud started using his gifts of wit and verse to help other teens in dire straits with their significant others, but that's just one part of a much larger story regarding Cloud's prodigal cousin.
"Postcards" is funny and poignant and an excellent addition to the Fred oeuvre.
Funny...very funny. I'm so glad I read this today. I needed something light.
I love the dialog of this teenage boy. I love that it's clean humor. I love the situations and the things learned without the reader feeling preached at...not that I mind preaching... It's just that sometimes it becomes trite and over done.
Mark Cloud is such a likable kid...someone I would have hung around as a teenager.
The author has an amazing way of describing things that just makes you giggle. You can't help but enjoy this book. I couldn't recommend it more! It's was just plain fun.
Postcards from Fred is the fourth book written, but it takes place third chronologically in these delightful, touching books. I found them to be witty (hysterical at times), yet they all had insights for us all to learn from. I finished Postcards in less than two days, like I did with the other three Fred books. Thanks, Brad, for treating your fans with another little slice of Fred.
