Arena When things get too deep for Faith she looks to Gabriel for help Can Gabriel save Faith from self created destruction or is he just too lost in his own worldly struggles to lend a hand Sometimes when you return to a series especially if it has been than 2 years there is a little trepidation I have read many series that ended up going downhill after the first book Especially if the first book Freeing Tanner Rose was so good that at the time I considered it one of the best Catholic Young Adult book I had read That was not the case this time And returning to the small town and characters in the Faith and Kung Fu series was like visiting with friends that you have not seen in a long timeLike book 1 in this series this is an intense read but for very different reasons Instead of being about someone who has not ever really interacted with people of faith and helping them turn their life around This book is about a girl named Faith who has always been a Christian a good Catholic girl He brother is a Catholic and her parents raised her well But all of a sudden she is making some bad choices some very bad decisions She has started blowing off her closest friend She is making jokes and disparaging remarks about things she believed and was committed to previously She is interested in a guy with a wicked temper and who has hurt her and left bruises The boy she is interested in named Christian is on a Kung Fu Scholarship at their Catholic school He does not have any faith and a lot of anger When he is suspended from school for fighting Faith has the idea that he can continue to train with Gabriel at the local dojo And like his namesake the angel maybe Gabriel can save Faith even from herself and maybe just maybe even be able to influence Christian to help his change courseThere are a number of strengths to this book and the series First are the characters Gaouette does an excellent job fleshing out her characters They are real and very well written Also the plot there are likely very few of us who have not known someone who drifted away from the faith or someone who struggles or struggled with anger issues Or have friend impacted by divorce and its effect on the whole family Gaouette captures so many deep issues and yet deals with them with sensitivity and from her faith based perspectiveBut to find that out you will need to read the book This is another great book by TM Gaouette and I hope very much that it is not the last in this series And that we have many excellent Catholic young adult reads from her in the years to come Read the review on my blog Book Reviews and More and reviews of other books by TM Gaouette As well as an author profile and interview with TM GaouetteNote This book is part of a series of reviews 2017 Catholic Reading Plan

FREE MOBI â DOC Saving Faith ↠ RANDARENEWABLES ☆ With Tanner Rose gone Gabriel is left to settle back into the God devoted life he’d become so accustomed to Except that his best friend’s sister Faith has decided that a life for the Lord is just way too confining In an attempt to live a little Faith focuses her intIs just way too confining In an attempt to live a little Faith focuses her interests on a handsome but worldly boy from her school who has major self control issues in and out of the kung fu It had been ten months since I read the first book Freeing Tanner Rose I'd forgotten a lot about the character Tanner Rose and what had happened to her so when she was first mentioned in this book I wished for specific background information to become reacuainted with her I think with that any reader would be able to read and enjoy this story as a stand alone if he or she chose to do so Overall this is a good story that shows teens struggling with faith in God due to events and circumstances in their lives but also enduring those trials and coming out with a better understanding of themselves and their fellow human beings Gabriel is still my favorite character but I could relate to Faith's situation and her emotions The dialogue between the various teens seemed natural and believable My only complaint is the way the paragraphs were structured in the dialogue When one person was speaking the reaction by another person was often included in the same paragraph which sometimes confused and caused me to stop and read a paragraph again This is a good clean teen read that has a lot to offer readers regarding managing anger first infatuation and understanding what God has in store for you I purchased the Kindle edition of this book
