Review by Gretchen Hoffman
This book was life changing for me. Rachel’s Tears is about Rachel Scott, a Christian girl who was killed in the school shooting at Columbine High School in 1999. It was written by her parents not too long after her death and tells the story of her faith in God from writings in her journals and her family’s remembrance of her.
I read this book a year or so after it came out, and it completely changed my ideas of what my Christian faith meant. There are only a couple books I could say truly changed me, and this is one of them. If you’ve never read this book, I cannot recommend it highly enough. I’ve read and reread it, and it’s moving every time. Make sure to have some tissues on hand when you go through it though—it will almost definitely bring tears to your eyes.
