I received this book via Thomas Nelson.

Rachel Scott, a teenager was killed at a shootout on April 20, 1999, at Clumbine High School, where twelve others died aong with her. Since from very young she had believed in God and Jesus. That day before the shootout, she was eating lunch with another friend, when she was asked if she believed in God and when she affirmed, she was killed instantly.

Dealing with such a tragedy is not easy for anyone. Expecially for the family of that person, who had deep faith in God and Christianity. This book is about her faith, the jottings she made in her Diary and her way to reach out for others. Maybe this also helped her parents to deal with the tragedy and live with hope. This book is for all those who believe in the power of healing by hope, faith and belief.
