Bobby is a 13 year old boy who is being raised by a single mom. Bobby loves his mother very much however on his 13th birthday his whole world changes for the worse. Bobby's mom collapsed on the floor at his birthday party. Bobby finds out his mother has a mass on her kidney, Bobby doesn't understand why his mother is sick with cancer he is all upset about it. He feels like no one is going to help his mom or him. He is so scared about this all he isn't sure what to think about it all.
Bobby found out he could be tested for a kidney for his mom however she told him she would rather wait till they found a different match as she doesn't want to put Bobby through all that. Bobby wonders is there a God will his mom die. A friend Tony is there to help Bobby through this as he is so scared. He cares about Bobby and his mom she teaches Bobby the stuff a dad would teach his son such as baseball and more. So while Bobby's mom is in the hospital Bobby will stay with Tony. Bobby also finds out his mother's cancer is spreading faster than doctors thought. If Bobby's mom dies he will have no one he feels as most of the family is dead and his only uncle Johnny is MIA.
Both Bobby and Tony are going to be tested to see if they are a match for Bobby's mom. Will Bobby be a match or will Tony? Will either be a match? When they find out neither are a match the doctor put Bobby's mom on a waiting list but there are 5 people ahead of her. Will she get the kidney soon enough to save her or will it not come fast enough?
While Bobby is at Tony's while Bobby's mom is in the hospital, Bobby runs away. He is scared while on his trip he wants to help his mom anyway he can. Will this be the worse idea Bobby had or will he be able to get help for his mom just in time. Where will Bobby runaway to? While on his trip Bobby finds a young girl named Annie she take Bobby to a church where she has some people she knows. One is a nurse named Donna. Will Donna be able to help Bobby help his mom?
Can they save Bobby's mom? Will Bobby learn to trust God? Are you ready to take a trip down faith and trust road.
You will learn that bad things happen but something good always happens to turn it around. You will fall in love with little Bobby you will want to hug him and tell him it going to be ok. You will cry laugh and cheer in this book. Very well written I love it. I would for sure give it 5 out of 5.
This book has surpassed all my expectations and delighted me with a fast-moving plot, and a storyline that begs the reader to believe in miracles, angels and a world where people still care about each other. The only downside I could find is that it needs some editing, but other than that, this is a story that will stay with the reader for a long long time.
I highly recommend this enchanting book for fans of Christian fiction and anybody in the mood for a tearjerker read.
