Does he realize what’s going? I want to shake him until his tie flaps like a birds wings! “Wake up!” I scream. Does he see how not normal this is? Does he see Becca’s tiny heart breaking? Does he see me standing here surrounded by everyone and their questions without any answers? But his windows are up, drowning out our pleas.

Book: Angry by Laura L. Smith, Nav Press 2010
Genre: Realistic Fiction
Target Audience: Girls 14-18
Subjects: Divorce, anger, family relationships
Summary: Her life is being torn apart and no one has solutions. She tries to lose herself in the music, the drama she is performing in at school, but even that can not completely distract from the reality of her parents’ decision to destroy her life. Her anger is growing and consuming her with no end in sight.
Notes: This book takes a hard look at the hard consequences of divorce. It’s also a look at the only One powerful enough to heal a broken heart. Distractions aren’t enough. The character’s anger just grows and gets worse until she lets it go and surrenders it to Christ.
Recommendation Scale: 4/5
Reviewer: J:-)mi

Psalm 13:2,5 - How long must I wrestle with my thoughts and every day have sorrow in my heart? But I trust in your unfailing love; my heart rejoices in your salvation.
