getting rid of hate, one person at a time... Apr 26, 2005
"Fault Lines" book three in Nancy Rue's `Nama Beach High Series, starts up a month after the incident that left Laura with her broken jaw (book 2, False Friends and True Strangers). Laura is doing better now, but her jaw is still wired shut, and she can't sing. In fact, everything is going good at `Nama High, until K.J.'s parents announce their plans to divorce and a new group of students come to school. The new students are Jews, only everyone thinks their Middle Eastern terrorists. And it doesn't help when everyone soon finds out that they're Jews, because the students of `Nama High have no idea what to do about a group of Jews who are unfriendly and sit together in a quiet group, not talking to anyone and even telling Laura and her posse that they want nothing to do with them. When a group of Rednecks starts to pick on the Jewish students, Laura is the first person to stand up-but realizes that she's standing up for the wrong reasons. At this point Ponytail Boy intervenes yet again, informing her that she needs to get rid of the hate in herself before she can help others get rid of their hate. So Laura comes up with an idea to bridge the gap between the Jewish students and the Christians on campus, all the while trying to get rid of her own hate, and later the hate among her friends. Laura finally does befriend the Jewish students on campus-but the event causes the unthinkable to happen. It is only then that Laura learns how much she has let God change her, especially after the unthinkable happens to her and she meets up with Richard, her ex from the first book in the series. This book continues to draw upon being an example to non-Christian friends, while also bringing to light the passages in the Bible regarding hate (although indirectly), solving your own problems before going after someone elses, and, lastly, Rue talks about the common links in Judaism and Christianity, and points out how modern day Christians themselves can be unreasonably nasty and hateful to Jews. A must read in the `Nama Beach High series.
