Overview

Written teen to teen as a first-person narrative, this is not a book about the Columbine shootings - instead, it's a story of faith, told in Rachel's own words. The book includes first person narratives, journal entries, drawings from Rachel's diary, and notes from her parents and friends at Columbine High School. Additionally, "me pages" (what makes me angry, what I'm afraid of) encourage teens to explore issues central to their lives and faith. Highlighting Rachel's faith journey from the time she became a Christian, through her joys and doubts, her hopes and dreams, this story is a triumphant testimony that teens will treasure.

The book is written in an easy to read way mainly for younger teens and paints a story of a very typical yet very unique person. Rachel experienced the same life challenges as most teens, sometimes succeeding, sometimes failing. Her faith in Jesus played a crucial role in her life and was the focus of her goals which seemed to lead her to a more stable yet no less dramatic path in her final year of life. It was this same faith though that led to rejection and ridicule by some. While I can see why they may have seen her as being somewhat of an 'oddity' with her upfront, no nonsense approach to God being that I'm not a Christian myself I nevertheless see though same qualities as the key to unlocking the hearts of people everywhere of all walks of life, religious or not and I can't help but ask myself if I would like to live in the kind of world that Rachel would create. The answer is easily yes and I dare say even Rachel's killers would have preferred her world too because the world Eric and Dylan created for themselves only led them to their own destruction. I have done a lot of reading and am really starting to to understand these issues.

I LOVED THIS BOOK!! After I finished it, when they talked about how Rachel died, i felt like I had lost one of my best friends. She truly was an amazing young woman in CHrist. It encouraged me to not be afraid when I am persecuted for my relationship with Christ. A MUST READ FOR EVERYBODY!!!

Hey, you will love this book. I heard Beth Nimmo(Rachel's mom) speak at a youth rally and I read the book. I could relate to it being a christian teen too, so i thought it was great. It shows you how strong she truly was. I recommend this book for all teens, and i recommend RACHEL'S TEARS for parents.

I read Rachel's Tears before reading this book and I loved it and wanted to know more about Rachel's Life. So, I read this book and now I know that Rachel was such an amazing person. She touched many peoples lifes and through her death,many more people have gotten to know who she is and how caring and true she was. She continues to touch people through her death and she will teach everyone a lesson.
