Keeping Faith

By Jodi Picoult

I give this book 4.5 stars! It was so good! I found myself staying up way too late every night just so I could read more.

Faith just caught her dad with another woman, but isn't really sure what is going in. All she knows is it upset her mom and now her parents are getting a divorce. As if this weren't enough for a seven year old to go through, now Faith says she is seeing and talking to God! Is she crazy? Is she lying?

This book revolves around God and religion, yet never really feels like a religious book! This was such an interesting read! Loved it!!

I wouldn't normally pick up a book focusing religion, but Picout's novel touches on so many subjects familiar to all of us -- family, religion, our dreams, our downfalls -- that it brings the subject to a comfortable place to be contemplated. Picout creates characters that are believable in a story that leaves the reader yearning for each new chapter. I honestly couldn't put it down.. and I haven't felt that way about a book in a long time.
