Guardian angels do exist and God still performs miracles. In this simple yet engaging compilation, bestselling author Karen Kingsbury retells some of the incredible stories she's heard from teenagers over the years.
"Gr. 7-12. From an author who has produced several similar treasuries, this features stories that revolve around teens. There's the girl who is told by an angelic hospital janitor that her sick brother will survive; the drug-addled boy who sees the face of Jesus; the daughter who so misses her dead father that she can barely function--until she sees him again. Kingsbury has obviously rewritten the selections because they all sound the same and follow a similar pattern: a tragedy befalls a teen who calls out to God for help, and the situation, often through the appearance of a heavenly being, is remade. Though this is heavy handed and will leave skeptical teens wondering about unanswered prayer, many readers will respond to the stories and their message. A few blank pages at the end offer space for readers to recount their own miracles, but it's doubtful many will take advantage of this in a library book."
