Going the Distance by Stephaine Perry Moore

This is my second book to read by Ms. Moore and I must say I am just as impressed as I was by the first one! Her wholesome writing exemplifies godly character for young people to follow. Once again she is right on track with getting to the heart of the many challenges young people face and feelings that go with them.
Summer is here and like most young boys, Alec has plans to goof off and sleep in but things don’t quite turn out as he’d like. His spirits soar when he finds out his Mom will be able to get away from her out of town job and visit. The family goes all out and prepares for a big party. Last minute problems prevent her from coming and Alex is devastated. Instead of being upset he decides to spend a lot of time at the new pool with his friends. Wanting his sons to do something constructive with their time, their Dad enrolls them in a baseball camp! Not only can Alex not play baseball but he hates it! To make matters worse, Tyrod, the school bully is there and becomes buddies with his brother Antoine!
Things seem to make a turn for the better when his mom flies him and Antoine to California to spend time with her. She enrolls them in an acting camp and the door opens for Alec to start a career in television! His Mom puts a stop to it and he doesn’t understand why.
Young people have a problem with getting upset when things don’t go their way. This book has a powerful biblical lesson not only in how God wants them handle these situations but also how to apply this truth to their lives.
As with all Ms. Moore’s books there are word searches after each chapter and fun educational activities.
I highly highly recommend these books for young boys or girls, not only for quality reading but instilling strong moral values and godly standards!
I received this book free from Moody Publishers. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 255
