As Glen Sauten tries to finish up his last year of school and decide on his future, his top priority is to help his best friend Luke, who was injured trying to protect Glen from Charlie and is now back home, facing life in a wheelchair. And not exactly happy about it.
But Glen is also distracted by his up-and-down relationships with not one, but three girls. Not to mention Charlie, who just won’t go away.
Meanwhile, Nicole realizes she’s going to have to make the hardest decision of her life.
In order to survive, Glen and Nicole cling to God. To their surprise, they both find themselves saying and doing things they’d never have imagined. In the end, they realize that what really matters isn’t who you were in the past, or who you are now, but who you will become in the future.

“A beautifully written book filled with real, vulnerable characters. Glen, despite his quiet nature, is never wimpy and makes a fine, heroic role model for the book’s readers. Luke and Charlie are also wonderfully drawn characters and the behaviors that result from their pain are understandable, if not always forgivable. Even flaky Marta, who latches onto Glen’s friendship, much to Glen’s disgust, is terrific, and likable. … Ms. Lindquist is able to craft stunningly vivid guy-characters, a plus in attracting young male readers, yet she never neglects her female characters. Highly recommended for all teens.” Rosemarie DiCristo, Christian Library Journal
“Glen is a guy who starts seeing the pastor’s daughter for the wrong reasons, but his life is changed eternally because of it… These books are a great tool for sharing your faith and would be a great addition to your home library or your church library. The Old Schoolhouse Magazine, reviewed by Debbie Doane
“Buy the whole series for a teen in your life.” Crystal E. Miller
“N. J. Lindquist’s books are the best Christian fiction I have read in decades.” Marilyn Yocum, writer, and speaker
