Safe on Solid Ground Kindle Edition
Taryn Thompkins, fifteen-year-old daughter of a heroin addict, is just settling into a group home when an experienced foster family offers to take her in. Embraced by the Myer family, Taryn begins to understand for the first time what family really means. But when Kaitlyn’s rebellion threatens everyone’s peace, Taryn is caught in a crossfire of mistrust and judgment and left wondering if she ever should have agreed to live with them in the first place.
Terrified of the repercussions, Kaitlyn cannot speak the truth, and no one’s listening to Taryn. But as secrets, half-truths, and lies upheave the family, one thing is certain: Truth alone will set their feet on solid ground.

Honestly, this is not an easy book to read. At one point, I almost put it down. My heart was aching for Kaitlyn and Taryn! As things deteriorated, it was difficult to watch. Yet this is not the first book by Chrissy M. Dennis that I've read and I knew that it would have a satisfying ending so I gave myself a little break and picked it back up to finish.
The message of this book is important, and I hope many people read it and pay attention. If you are being bullied, don't hide it! Talk to someone.
I'm not a mom. Maybe if I had a teenager I could make a better recommendation for whether this would be a good book for a younger teen. A part of me that says it would be great,because it deals with bullying, foster families, and a highly dysfunctional family in a big way. And shines the light of the Lord on all of it. Yet I hesitate to recommend it for younger teens for that same reason. It is a heavy story. So, parents, I encourage you to read it first and determine whether it would be a good fit for your child.
I was given a copy of this book. I was not required to give a favorable review nor was any money received for this review. All comments and opinions are my own.
