Just Believe is an enjoyable, incredible story that reads like a fun YA fiction, with the heartfelt faith of a memoir. In a modern world, where everyone is plugged into technology and disconnected from human contact, this dynamic-mother/daughter-duo unite for a summer of fun, chasing what would appear to be an impossible dream. But Destiny’s will never wavers, proving that by maintaining a positive spirit, plus the sheer strength of her faith in God, along with the undying support of her devoted mother, and some miracle-work from the Man Upstairs, anything is possible if you Just Believe. This book came to me at just the right time; the mantra of the story—Just Believe—gave me the added inspiration I didn’t realize I needed to keep on track with my personal, interpersonal, and professional goals. An uplifting read, perfect for middle school+ girls, their mothers, and anyone needing an extra dose of faith in their lives.
