Well written. Too sad though. This book follows David's life along with his friends Greg and Lacy from middle school through college. We see their growth in the Lord and their participation in their Christian youth group, their love for one another and how they react to tragedy. I think it was a lot of years to cover in one book. I also thought it was a bit stereotypically waspish. Still a good story but I am not sure if I will read any of the others because it is too sad. I think if you like Nicholas Sparks books you may like this series.
