Reviews - What do customers think about Girls of Grace?
This book is highly recommended as a great gift for a teenager from 12 to 60! Nov 18, 2008
Delightfully spiritual, this novel is seen through the eyes of fourteen year old Leah R Eads from Kingman, Arizona. Her inspiring relationship with God becomes paramount to the story. Leah, at her young age, wrote Girls of Grace Faith vs. Fear displaying a talent beyond her years which unfolds into a quest to do good deeds for others in this small community. Leah said that she had written this book as a Christmas present for her friends in her Christian Girls Club. Her mother encouraged her to submit her book for publication and her friends positively agreed.
The main theme of this novel is the predicament facing the Crisis Community Pregnancy Center. The center is in desperate need of funds in order to remain open. All efforts at fund raising had not produced enough revenue. Then, as if by a miracle, an opportunity presented itself to the local Christian Girls Club to become a part of the solution.
Twists and turns ensue creating many obstacles for the girls to win a competition between faith-based teams. Many times they are discouraged, but through faith and prayer, liberally distributed throughout the book, they are guided to the next step in an actual reality competition.
What makes this novel unique is Leah Eads is able to capture your senses and emotions while spinning a yarn of competitiveness which holds your attention. The only down side to the story is that it ends too abruptly. Realizing this is not an epic novel, you want more of the story written by Leah, as she tells her tale very well. Eads displays excellent humor in her writing style and gets her point across very well.
The market for this book is in the age bracket of the author, 14 to 16. We all can benefit from our young people, as they are truly talented, caring, and devout. Our society seems to be instilling in our next generation a great sense of community and religion. This book is highly recommended as a great gift for a teenager from 12 to 60!

Such a blessing! Oct 8, 2008
What a wonderful book! It is such a blessing to have good "God Honoring" books available for our daughters. I read it along with my eleven year old daughter. We have also purchased copies for friends for gifts. This book really makes a great present. We can't wait for more books from this author!
