The Secret based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
Fifteen year old Parker Blevins is leading his band, Second Rate, to bigger gigs and onto the radio waves. But as the band's exposure grows, it also draws controversy. The Christian rock band is booked to play at the community block party and a leading atheist in town, who is also a popular DJ on the local radio station, makes it his mission to stop them. For Parker, the controversy goes much deeper. For him, it isn't just a local DJ trying to stop Second Rate; it is much closer to home. Literally. Dax Blevins, the DJ leading the fight against the band's performance is also Parker's stepfather¿his musical hero and the man who is more of a father to him than his real father ever was. Up until now, Parker has kept his faith hidden from his family, just as he has kept his family and his past a secret from his band mates. Will the band members keep him in Second Rate when they find out about his father and Parker's ugly past? What will his stepfather say when he finds out that the leader of the band he's protesting against lives in the same home? Will he force Parker to renounce his faith and give up the band? Barb Huff shows the struggle that this young teen must face as he tries to live out his faith on a daily basis in a home that derides it. A must read for any teen struggling to live out his faith in a world that is hostile to it.
