    This is the poignant story of a family in crisis as seen through the eyes and emotions of Margaret, the teenage daughter, as she struggles to find answers to her questions What does one do with feelings of anger and pain and guilt when tragedy occurs How does one continue to go through the motions of normal life when your heart is breaking Does God hear our prayers How does faith help when there seems to be no hope Through Margaret s thought and prayers, the reader travels with her through the serious illness of her brother, Sean.The book is a cautionary tale about the dangers of using steroids to improve athletic performance More than that, however, it explores what happens when a parent s natural desire to want the best for his child turns toxic when that child sees himself as having value only when fulfilling the parent s drive for perfection Within the family home and dynamics, in what should be a haven of support and unconditional acceptance and love, the teens in this book feel pressure and fear scorn if they don t live up to the expectations of their father What happens when your best just isn t good enough This is heavy stuff, and perhaps should be required reading for both teens and parents as a springboard for discussion.Balancing the dire situation in which Sean finds himself i...

    Stopped Cold by Gail Palotta kept me going from beginning to end, and I had to read it all in one sitting Great and relevant story re steroids, but I never saw the twist of how Sean got the drugs, or why he used them What a great bond between brother and sister, and I loved the faithfulness of friends old, Emily and new, Jimmy The idea to have this take place at a Christian school is great, because the same kind of stuff that goes on in regular school system goes on in these Christian settings as well Kids are kids, and life is hard, no matter who you are or where you are I loved how praying, when not really knowing what to say was brought up, and prayer used often We all need to pray and to be reminded to keep close to Him, keep our faith in Him, and leave the rest to Him.As an avid reader of Hardy Boys growing up, I thoroughly enjoyed the twists and turns, the tense moments...
