What would you do if you were a young boy of thirteen years old and just discovered your mother, you best friend, your life, may be dying of cancer? Give up, act a fool, run away? Since he was a young child, it was always just Bobby and his mother. He had no grandparents, his father left when he was young and all that is left is an uncle who is in the military. His mother has lost so much over the years that she does not deserve to have this illness thrust upon her. Staying with Tony, a family friend, both he and Bobby are tested to see if they would be a match for a kidney. When the results come back negative Bobby is beside himself. Bobby runs away in the hope of finding a way to cure his mother. When Bobby meets up with Annie, another runaway, they embark on a journey that not only cements a lasting friendship but also helps Bobby to realize that there is a God and that He will help if Bobby will just turn his problems over to Him.
This is one of those books that are very hard to put down. It will bring a smile on your face and a tear in your eyes. A Christian based book, it shows how one on one's own spiritual journey can learn to deal with illness, possible death and one's own belief in God. I felt as I read that these two young people were placed together by God to help them both on their journey through life. As Annie teaches Bobby about God and His very existence we are able to view Bobby’s thoughts and ideas and how he battles emotions and his coming faith. It is a very heartwarming book that I would recommend for everyone, especially teenagers who at some point in their life are going to have to deal with what Bobby did.
