"Saving Bobby" is amazingly, the most heartwarming story I've read all year. You will not be disappointed when you pick this one up. I was given this book by the author herself, and I am so glad that I got the chance to read it. This is not my usual genre, but this story won me over.
Thirteen year-old Bobby's life starts to turn for the worst on his thirteenth birthday. When he finds out that his mother is sick from cancer, and does not have that long to live, he does everything in his power to save her. During his journey, not knowing where to go or what to do, he finds company of a girl named Annie. Annie, accompanies Bobby on an unforgettable journey to save his mother, and to save himself. He never believed in God or miracles, but Annie slowing guides him in the path to God. Bobby starts to see God's work and accepts him into his life and heart.
This was an incredible read about God, miracles, angles, and heartbreak. This is a story that will truly stay with me for a lifetime. I love everything about this story: the courage this young boy has and everything he will do to save his mother; the unforgettable plot that will have you in tears; and most importantly, the miracles that God will do if you believe and accept Him in your heart.
I loved that this is the type of story that does not push God on you, it simply "shows" you what God is capable of. I would definitely recommend this book to others who want to enjoy a heartwarming read that will stay with you forever.
