Against an Amber Sky by H.R. Holm. Published by CFI.

The year is 1971 and Bodi Brooks is fifteen years old. The biggest problem in her life is her mean math teacher. She has friends, a great family and she's an aspiring poet. Bodi thinks she has a great life. However, things never stay the same. This is a story about growing up, overcoming problems, accepting tragedy.

I thought this book was very well written. The words seem to flow off the pages and create imagery so powerful that I could truly see the characters. This was not written as an LDS book. In fact, it may not be. But it is a story of Christian values, integrity and it is a testimony that God lives. I think that there is probably more to this account, I'm sure there will be a sequel. I hope there will be - because I really want to know how Bodi's life turns out.
