About Author Chris Raabe
About the book!
Every teenager wants to fit in, and Christian Pearson is no different. He is a phenomenon on the athletic field and in the classroom, but a terrifying accident on a fishing trip with his grandfather changes Christian's life forever. As he enters his freshman year of high school, Christian hides a secret that he plans to take to his grave. When the Pearson family moved from the city to the sleepy town of Red Oak, Iowa, before his freshman year of high school, Christian hoped for a smooth transition to small town life. Being the new kid in school has been a blessing and a curse. Most of the boys in Christian's class view him as a threat, so Christian struggles to fit it, but as an outcast, his secret is safe. When three freshmen, all from the same family, start school a week late, Christian senses something different about these new students. He reaches out to "The Three" seeking some semblance of friendship in his new hometown. When "The Three" confront Christian about the secret he hides, Christian is faced with a huge problem. Will this secret cost Christian his friends, his family, his freedom, and even his life?
My Sons Take:
It's awesome.... read it or suffer an eternal pain of not reading The New Phenomenon... Have a nice day.- Cam
He's 13......enough said. :-) Anyway...I have not yet got to read it. Cam gave it to me to read, but with the bible studies I am involved in, etc...I have not had the opportunity to yet...but I have never read a book that Cam has told me to read that I HAVEN'T liked. We have the same taste in books...so I am confident that I will enjoy it. If nothing more, you should buy it for your teen or tween and then read it also!! As a bonus, Mr. Raabe was one of my son's teachers in 7th grade. He was a favorite of Cam's! Great guy!
