Adam Gould is not your average teenager.  In fact, if you ever saw him coming, you might walk the other way.  He dresses completely in black, dyes his hair, and outlines his eyes in heavy goth makeup.  But, what you wouldn’t realize is what’s behind those shadows:  he’s hiding the bruises and trying to stand apart from the world.

Adam’s never been popular, and starting over at a new school in a whole new state is no way for this outcast to become an inspiration—unless that’s exactly how God wants to use him. Adam is trying his best to be God’s light in a dark world, especially when it comes to repairing the broken relationship with his mother or catching the attention of the tempestuous Keira Sanchez.  But nothing is perfect.  His mom is bogged down with her bad choices, and Keira is clearly hiding a dark secret.  Nevertheless, Adam won’t give up.  By pulling at the strings of the past, he scratches the surface of a seedy underbelly that is plaguing their otherwise picturesque small-town.  As Adam attempts to navigate the winding pitfalls of life, it becomes clear that his whole world is about to change.

A Note to Parents:

Dear Parent or Guardian,

This is a Christian teen fiction series. However, it deals with several adult topics including: bullying, domestic violence, drug and alcohol abuse, pornography, sex, rape, and most importantly, human trafficking. I have done my best to avoid graphic and unnecessary details. Nevertheless, if your child is a younger teen or sensitive in nature, I would highly recommend reading the books for yourself first.

You know your child best, and are most equipped to judge the content to which he or she is exposed. As a parent myself, I understand the dichotomy between a desire to shield them from the worst of this fallen world, and the necessity to prepare them for the harsh realities, temptations, and pitfalls they may encounter. Proverbs 19:2 reminds us, “…it is not good for a person to be without knowledge, and he who hurries his footstep errs.” Sometimes when we shelter our children from the evils around them too diligently, we make them easier prey for the cunning and manipulative. Knowledge is power.

Good reading and God bless,

Kimberly Koch
