When sixteen-year-old Luke’s book, Hallelujah, becomes a national bestseller, his publishing house sends him on a cross-country book tour with his older brother, Matt, as chauffeur. But when irresponsible Matt offers to drive Luke’s ex–soul mate, Fran, across the country too, things get a little crazy. On the trip, Luke must loosen up, discover what it truly means to have faith, and do what it takes to get the girl he loves.
Told with Antony John’s signature wit and authenticity, and featuring smart, singular characters who jump off the page and into your heart, this story is a spiritual awakening and rockin’ road trip in one.

Book Review:

This book was amazing, there were some disappointments though. I know I was not on the Young Adult Christian Aisle at my local B&N, but I was positive there was going to be some serious Coming to Jesus with this book.

The characters were witty,  but dull at times. I had to walk away from the book for an hour just to get to the next chapter. The basis of the book was amazing, but the ending fell flat. It’s. A. Romance. I know a grown man wrote this, but I do not understand why the book ended the way it did. There was so much hype leading up to the two main characters collision yet nothing went as planned. (In my head anyway.) There was something about how the words fell onto the page that made me know (just know!) that it was going to end with butterflies and rainbows.

I felt the book was good (really good!) until the ending. Where everything spiraled out of control and ended with a thud of the back cover and me wearing a frown.

Until next time -Jordan
