Come What Mayby Peter Edward Forbes
A novel based on the award winning movie COME WHAT MAY. If college student Caleb Hogan argues what he truly believes, he stands to lose the most important competition of his life--and the support of his mother. If he softens his stance, he might win the coveted title . . . but lose the heart of his teammate Rachel in the process. While his mother prepares for her high-profile abortion case before the Supreme Court, Caleb discovers the strength of the pro-life argument in preparation for the National Moot Court Championship. In life-and-death legal cases, can there truly be a winner? COME WHAT MAY is a vivid reminder that choosing what's right is never easy . . . but it's always worth the cost.

As someone who enjoyed the film version of Come What May, I wasn’t sure what to expect from the book. As a firm believer that novelizations are merely a way to make more money off a movie, I didn’t know how this one could be that different. And as a busy college student with plenty to read already, I wasn’t sure it would be worth my time. I was wrong. Peter Forbes’s clear, engaging prose kept the humor from the movie alive, while conveying the messages central to the story. But more than retelling the film on paper, he expands it to add depth and life—not only did I enjoy Come What May, but I had trouble putting it down. The characters have clearer motivations and compelling back-stories, and even though I know the film’s plot backwards and forwards, I was still intrigued. Is it perfect? No; there were a few scenes which flowed better in the movie than in the book. But as a first full-length work, it is impressive. Peter honored the plot and the message of the film while creating his own richer and more compelling story that thoughtfully addresses issues our society is facing today. So is it a classic that will still be read in a thousand years? Probably not. Is it worth your time? Absolutely.
