    great book!

    This book is a great guide for forgiveness and moving forward. In The Chain Reaction, by Darrell Scott, a father describes the message that his daughter left behind for the world. This message, that one simple act of kindness can inspire a chain reaction, is what gave Darrell meaning for moving on. Darrell feels that God's plan for his life is sharing his beloved daughter's philosophy. Some of the major themes or messages of this book are forgiveness, kindness, moving forward and the effects of your actions. I liked this book because of all the positivity that it entails. This book makes you really step back and decide what effect you want to have on the lives of others. It, in essence, provides you with a clean slate, or a fresh start. People should read this book if they are in need of a "life evaluation" or if they need to reevaluate their outlook on the simple thing. Overall, I think this book was a great tool to help me appreciate the little things and know that all things I do, little or small, can have any sort of affect on others.

    An Angel from Heaven

    I had attended a seminar given by Rachels brother earlier this year. I was so moved by his story that I had to order this book to learn more. I was very happy with the book and was so inspired by the love and compassion that one child could have. I know that Rachel is looking down at us from Heaven. She is a true Angel.

    When I first picked up this book I coulnd't put it down. It's amazing how one simple act of kindess can change a person. Rachel's story has touched me deeply since the columbine shootings 2 years ago. I think everybody should read this book Darrell Scott did a wonderful job writting this book.

    Powerful, Inspiring and Honest

    I have read the book Chain Reaction and I have had the honor of hearing Darrell Scott speak. My life has never been so greatly affected by a family I have never met. Rachel Scott who was murdered along with 12 other wonderful people have had a huge impact on my life. I thank all the families and I thank you for this book. I appreciate the fact that you show Rachel to be a normal young lady with normal problems. But her compassion for others was not normal and I will continue her acts of kindness in loving memory of all who were taken from us that day in April!
