Note: I received a free copy of this book via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
Lauren Werthman struggles with guilt and depression. Even moving to another state and into a new home doesn't help her overcome the life-altering aftermath of losing her sister. Memories of the tragic accident reverberate through her life as her family tries to cope, but Lauren's life spirals out of control. Her mother criticizes her choices every day, her father continues to work later and later, and people at her new school seem to know the family secret. Lauren binge-eats, has nightmares, and doubts the existence of a God Who didn't intervene to prevent the senseless tragedy. As Lauren's family and friends work through the pain and guilt, will they find that even though the void will always remain, the power of forgiveness brings peace and hope and a bright future, or will Lauren forever be lost to the pain and guilt?
Surviving Haley was an awesome book. I was hooked as soon as I read the first page. I do wish it had been longer and that perhaps there was some closer at the end but overall this was a great book. I would recommend this book for teens and young adults, especially Christian teens. I fell in love with Jonah and wished I had a friend like him in high school. Jonah is the perfect example that Christians are not perfect and that every day they try and live the way God wants them to. I would love to buy this book and give it out to the youth at my church.
My Rating: ★★★★★ Must have
