Now living with Kim and her father, her aunt and cousin bicker nonstop. Dating Matthew is about as unpredictable as can be. Her dads out of a job. Her prayers go unanswered.

When the world turns upside down, and Kim is about to fall apart, can she perhaps fall up? Straight into the arms of the One who loves her through the madness of life?
Friday, June 7
I think Im having a serious meltdown here. Its like Im unable to reason, I cant think straight, and I cant get my feelings under control. Even my prayers are pathetic, just hopeless cries for help, with no faith involved. Im a mess.
How much stress can a girl take? Kim Petersons mom has just died. Her visiting relatives bicker constantly. Her dad is lost in a fog of grief. Her boyfriend, Matthew, cant decide what to do after graduation. And Kims best friend Nat just cant seem to get over being dumped by Ben OConner, Caitlins younger brother.
More than anything, Kim wishes her mom were here to tell her everythings going to be okay. But thats not going to happen. When Kim reaches the breaking point, her dad sends her off to her grandmothers house in small-town Florida, where shes able to slow down, feed the gators, and realize that shes not indispensable...only God is! And instead of falling apart, she can fall up...into His arms.

Story Behind the Book
My teenage years remain vivid in my mind. It was a turbulent time full of sharp contrastslove and hate, pain and pleasure, trust and doubt. Then, just as I reached my peak of questioning, rebelling, and seeking, I found God. And I found Him in a really big way! My life turned completely around and has, thankfully, never turned back. Hopefully this story will touch and change heartsspeaking to teen girls right where they live, reminding readers that God is alive and well and ready to be intimately involved in their lives right now!

This was the first book I read in the Kim - Diray of a teenage girl series.

I totally loved it!!!!

I learned allot from it, about God, and walking in a relationship with Him.

Except it wasn't too preachy or anything, and It totally made sense.

I could relate to Kim, and she seemed so real.

After reading this book , I went on to read other Melody Carlson books, but this still remains one of my number one favorites from her.

I was actually thinking about starting some kind of Melody Carlson discussion group or something at my liabary, because I want to talk to other girls my age who read and love her books too!

But anyway,

You have got to read this book..It really touched my heart
and it sent me on this whole exciting, new journey with God.
And i hope it does the same or something similar for you too.

:)
