Told in a unique style at a breathtakingly rapid pace, 'Praying for Snow' by Jennifer Reynolds is the compelling coming-of-age story of the first thirty years in the life of Kristen Liza Westin. Devastating losses suffered in childhood lead to a series of painfully poor choices in adolescence. Growing up in a community of 12,000 in Kentucky, Kristen's life appears on the surface to be typical of small town America, but her story reveals the truth that no life is truly 'typical.' Abandoning her belief in God as a little girl, Kristen experiences many of the joys of childhood, but she has no true anchor in the turmoil surrounding her, and tragic circumstances push her into destructive behavior as she tries to escape the hurt haunting her life. Will Kristen ever learn that God has never abandoned His belief in her? Will she find herself on the path to healing and genuine love? 'Praying for Snow' is a story told with stark frankness, with a few lines of very strong language and honest, though not graphic, descriptions of illicit sex. Ultimately, it is a story of hope, one that might be used to reveal the destructiveness of wrong choices to questioning teenagers, but parental guidance is strongly recommended. For a young adult trying to recover from similar wrong choices, the story offers understanding and a way of escape, and the ending will leave readers 'Praying for Snow.'
