Have you read the new novel by Jay Asher called
I did....yesterday! The entire book! I could not stop reading and seemed to get a little irritated when I had to put it down to go do something!! This book is so moving and eye opening, that at times it is a little scary!! It is a story of a high school girl that has 13 "reasons" to commit suicide! It is eye opening into the thoughts of a teenager and the pain that we all endure at one time or another growing up! It is also very scary to think that someone you know could be going through the exact same thing and we may not ever even know!! If you are a parent or have any contact or influence over children, this is a MUST READ!!! I can not express how much I want everyone to read this book! It is like I am convicted to tell everyone...."RUN RIGHT NOW AND BUY THIS BOOK!!!!" If I could, I would buy copies and give them out!!
I hope and pray that my children never have to face the things that "Hannah" had to face but if they do I hope that I have the right words and actions to help them!!!
PRAYER for our children is the hope that we have to stand on!!!
