"The Chance" by Karen Kingsbury
" The Chance" by Karen Kingsbury is a five star book! I have to say another "Wonderful" book by her! It won't disappoint her fans! Her books are so good and so true to life. Ellie and Nolan are best friends and are 15. But then everything changes, Ellie's mom has done something that has made Ellie's father kick her out of the house and then he moves Ellie and himself from Georgia to California. The night before Ellie and her father move, Ellie and Nolan write each other a letter and bury it beneath "their tree". They make a promise to return in eleven years to read them. But it seems everything changed! Do they make it back to that tree? Ellie has a lot of trouble to overcome and Nolan has his own heartaches! Nolan is a pro basketball player but never gives up on God! Ellie has given up on God! This is a book about love, forgiveness and miracles! Yes this book has the tears falling but it leaves you with joy in your heart! I love how the characters all found out how good and wonderful forgiveness truly is! This story has a lot of twists and turns to make this more than just a love story! I love how Karen Kingsbury pulls all the characters into the ending and makes you really feel like you are watching the story unfold not just reading words!
