On Hope’s Wings

“Home.” She thought in frustration. “I have no home!”

Book: On Hope’s Wings by Melody Carlson
Genre: Realistic Fiction (Historical too – setting is in the past anyway)
Target Audience: Girls 12-15
Subjects: Family Relationships
Summary: Allison has had enough! Her movie star mom has “abandoned” her once again – not boarding school this time, but to a summer camp – a stupid summer camp that she hates going to. So she comes up with a plan to stay alone in her mother’s New York apartment. When she finds a letter from an unknown grandfather she dresses in her mom’s clothes, takes her money and sets off to visit this grandfather.
Notes: This is the 1st in a series about a young girl from a broken family as she seeks a loving adult to parent her rather than her mostly absent mom. In this book Allison meets some Christians and starts to learn a little bit about forgiveness but these themes are developed a lot more throughout the series.
Recommendation Scale: 3/5
Reviewer: J:-)mi

Ephesians 6:2-3 - "Honor your father and mother"--which is the first commandment with a promise that it may go well with you and that you may enjoy long life on the earth."
