Book Synopsis
Avalon Prish is a seventeen year old high school drop-out who has seemingly lost everything. Her mother, her relationship with her father, and her future at a top notch college. Feeling as if her life has no purpose, she runs away from her troubles in America and searches for answers in a place called Tamar's Home. There she meets a young woman who's unwavering faith challenges her to take a second look at life and the God she had long ago written off.

Jelda's life in rural Uganda was simple. Yet, she couldn't ask for better. She had the love of her Savior, her family, her education... she had a future. She never expected that could change. She never expected that her village would be attacked, her family would be killed, or that she would be taken captive as a sex slave. And she never expected that God would use her sufferings to capture the heart of a wayward teenager from a completely different world.

Let me just start out by saying this book was fantastic! The plot and narration was just outstanding! Julie masterfully blends mystery/suspense with a Christian aspect seamlessly. Along those same lines, I am awestruck that a young and talented author has such passion for Jesus and portrays it effortlessly through her writing! I believe much credit is due to Julie's choice in taking AP Literature :) Furthermore the characters in the book are easy to connect with and the word choice is spot on! I highly recommend this book because of its exquisite narration and it was written by a hot babe!
