Jake and Roger were once best friends. They did everything together. Roger even stepped in front of a car to save Jake. But when they got to high school, and Jake got better at basketball, things started to change. Jake started hanging out with the popular crowd. Before he knew it, he didn't have time for Roger at all. And now Roger is dead. None of Jake's new friends even know that he and Roger were once friends. They don't understand what this loss means. Jake wonders what's the point of it all? And if he had done things in his life differently, could he have saved Roger? As Jake searches for answers and tries to find meaning in life, his friends just don't get it. But Jake can't go back, even if it costs him his reputation. I'd wanted to see this movie, but it never came to a theater near me, not that any theater is near me...So I bought the book to tide me over. I'm totally glad I did. This book was powerful. It threw me into Jake's life, the life most every guy wishes he had: star athlete with a full ride scholarship to play for his dream school, the perfect girlfriend, fun best friends, and popularity. Then tragedy strikes and Jake starts to ask important questions. And he won't give up until he finds the answer. This book gets into faith in an honest and ugly way. Sometimes that's what we need to see. There are a lot of "Christians" out there making Christians look bad, loving themselves more than they love others. This book shows one guy struggling to do it the right way, no matter what anyone thinks. What an inspiring story. Now I want to see the movie more than ever! I highly recommend this to all high school and college students.

To Save A Life by; Jim and Rachel Britts In the novel To Save A Life by Jim and Rachel Britts, the main character, Jake Taylor, is faced with many challenges throughout the story. Although the beginning of the book is somewhat confusing, with Jake having flashbacks about his childhood with his old best friend, you become less confused as the story goes on. As the novel continues Jake has to make a decision between keeping his old life where everyone adores him, and starting a new path where he could be known as the "Jesus Freak". All through the story Jake asks continues to ask himself one question, which will be answered by the end of the story. Besides finding out why his old best friend killed himself, this novel is filled with ups, downs, twists, and turns on what most teenagers face every day. I enjoyed this book because you can relate it with what happens on an everyday basis to some people. With all the peer pressure and changes that go on throughout the book, I couldn't put it down. It really makes you stop and think about what happens when you see somebody get bullied all the time, or you see them alone without anyone to talk to. It's a perfect story for people junior high through college. Even though the movie is great, the book tells you how each character is feeling and gives you more detail than you would ever find in the movie. Not only is it a book about how you live and treat people in your life, but it's also a book that could make you think how you live. To Save A Life is a book that I will never forget.

At first I wasn't sure if I was going to be able to get into this book but about 4 chapters in I was hooked. When I figured out that there was a movie I couldn't wait to finish it so that i can watch it. It is a truly amazing story and you wont want to stop reading once you start it.

We need more books like this one. It was simply one of the best books I've read in my life. I haven't seen the movie yet, but I look forward to doing so once I can.
