Item description for Living With Fred by Brad Whittington...

Mark Cloud is back in Fred, Texas but Fred is not the same. The town drunk has got religion. One of Mark's classmates has started spitting out scriptures like a gumball machine. But more drastic things are in store for this small East Texas town. And for Mark.

Once again a forgotten book buried on a dusty library shelf incites revolution. Mark begins to ask troublesome questions. Mark begins a pilgrimage that challenges the open-mindedness of his father and the forbearance of the deacons. As his answers lead him further down the path of least expectance, he ultimately finds himself facing the fear that haunts every PK: I could cost my dad his job. Mark must choose between remaining faithful to his understanding of the gospel or appeasing the prejudices of those with the power to make his family pay for his decisions.

Reviews - What do customers think about Living With Fred?

Fly on the wall.  Apr 19, 2007
After reading "Welcome to Fred" I had high--and possibly unrealistic--expectations for "Living With Fred". Turns out they weren't unrealistic at all. The plot is thicker, the humor is deeper, and the characters more realistic. As for insight into the life of a teenage PK... So this is what if feels like to be a fly on the wall. Hmm. "Escape from Fred", here I come!
A Perfect Sequel  Aug 6, 2006
Sequels are rarely as good as their predecessors. This sequel is even better than the first book, Welcome to Fred. And WTF was great. This one has more laughs, more heart, more insight - I couldn't put it down. They say a good writer gets the reader so engrossed that he doesn't even know he's reading. This is that book.
Engaging, enjoyable look at small town teen growing in faith  May 26, 2006
Living with Fred by Brad Whittington is the terrific sequel to Welcome to Fred. We've met Mark Cloud, son of a Baptist preacher in small town Texas as he tries to fit in with not just the world around him, but also God's world. Whittington does a wonderful job of getting into the head of the average teenager. Events like getting asked out by Jolene or a conversation with his father are major dramas described with intricate detail. Major events in the world at large like a murder trial or the destruction of a neighbor's life are treated with less importance and only as they relate to Mark. Sounds like the average teenager to me! But Mark starts to mature after he reads In His Steps and starts to ask himself What Would Jesus Do? That question leads him to some hard decisions and ultimately to learn more about himself and forgiveness. Whittington's wit again shines through in Mark's outlook on girls. This book is truly enjoyable to read. Some Christian fiction is hard to read, but this is a book I couldn't wait to sit down with and smiled often while I read it. Escape to Fred, here I come!
Refreshing  Dec 8, 2005
Very few books live up to the cover. This one will suprise you. I can't wait to read "Escape from Fred". Be sure to read "Welcome to Fred", the first in this series.
Watermark: High Tide  Jun 29, 2005
Like Welcome to Fred, reading Living with Fred has raised the bar for all other literature that I plan to read next.
Thus far, "Living..." has proven to be a hard act to follow for my summer reading list. Reading the last paragraph was much like bidding a close friend farewell, only made slightly less bittersweet with promises of one last visit with Mark Cloud in the approaching third ( and sadly, last) installment.

Loyal Fred-onians will find LIVING WITH FRED a perfect cure for that homesick gnaw they experienced at the last sentence in "Welcome to Fred", while those who have never had the great fortune to kick back on one of Fred's dusty porches will find it the perfect summer get-a-way ( in which case I reccoment BOTH books)

Furthermore- if you are in any way, shape or form a PK- this is required therapy for your soul :)

"There's no place like home....or Fred!"
