Overview "What did you hear, you little twerp?" Tyke asked, holding Francis's wrists and looking at him with narrowed eyes. "I heard about the phone booth, and Tyke, let me join your gang! If you want to smash phone booths, I could help you. I can run fast. I'm fastest under eleven in the school. I could watch out and warn you, and you could smash anything you wanted."

Reviews - What do customers think about Where The River Begins?
More than a "feel good" Christian book Apr 30, 2003
I read this book over and over as a child and I think it influenced my involvement in foster care now. St. John writes with a real knowledge of what a children who find themselves in trouble are like. It is realistic, and yet extremely hopeful.
Warm reading Feb 4, 2002
I think the book is warm and shows some interesting aspects of real life and how much Jesus can change our hearts through love. I specially like the picture of Jesus being the spring of water that changes everything where it flows into green.
