The Secret Journal of Brett Colton!!!

Okay, this is the best book ever. "The Secret Journal of Brett Colton" by Kay Lynn Mangum. It is such a beautiful story. It is so captivating and makes you ponder even though it's fiction. You get so absorbed into it. After I finished this book, I started writing in my journal again. It had been a while. This book helped me to see the impact that a journal can have on another person, and if something were to happen to me, I would want my family to be able to understand my thoughts and feelings - especially as they relate to them. This story is unique and will make you laugh, cry and grateful for the testimony that you have. I rate this book a 10 out of 10. Even if you don't like LDS fiction, I think that you will find this book is special. A perfect Christmas gift!!!

"Kathy Colton can't stand her brother Brett. Her family talks as if he were perfect! All Kathy knows for sure is that Brett is dead. He died of leukemia when he was seventeen and she was only two. But when Kathy turns sixteen, she discovers her brother's hidden journal—a journal written especially for her—and learns about the brother she never knew. At the same time, Kathy is mortified by an assignment to tutor the popular high school quarterback Jason West, a football jock who, even worse, is a Mormon. Author Kay Lynn Mangum brilliantly weaves dual stories of a dying brother and a coming-of-age sister who learn the importance of loving family and nurturing faith."
