“Make safe the way that leads on high, and close the path to misery. . .”In dystopian America, with civil unrest and wars among the states, illegal activity is rampant and only the strongest survive. Reese Burns is one of the strong fighters. He doesn’t need Jesus to fight, either. Ezekiel, a ten-year-old child living in a fight dome, insists he get the answer about the story of Christmas. On Christmas Eve, Reese sets out to find the boy the best gift he’s capable of giving. The story of Jesus. The story only brings Reese pain at first, but then he’s forced to make a choice when a miracle happens. Can Reese choose faith in an unseen God in the midst of chaos?
My favorite character is Ezekiel is my favorite character and loved his character a whole lot, more than a lot!
My thoughts: OK, so, dystopian is my LEAST favorite genre like I can’t tell you how little I like this genre least favorite! I almost hate dystopian and never read it! But since this was Angela’s book I thought I’d try it, and I enjoyed it but slight spoiler here!
I didn’t really care for the end where Ezekiel said he saw Jesus…
Anyway, I loved the beginning and middle and was OK with the end of it!
I recommend it for 15 up and give it 4 stars!
My Verse for this story: Galatians 3:26
For ye are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus. (King James Version)
