"The Lion Cubs," book review

"The Lion Cubs," by Chrissy M. Dennis

"Fifteen-year-old loner Lexi Vogan has had enough. Four foster families in two years would be enough to make anybody run away! Alone in the world, she flees to Jacksonville where a group of runaway teens live in abandoned tunnels below the city. It seems like the perfect place for a forgotten face. Liz Swavier, thirty-six, became a widow two years ago when her husband succumbed to cancer, but she's managing just fine. At least, that's what she tells herself. Working long hours as a doctor in the ER, Liz's friends and family grow concerned that she's hurling herself into work to numb her grief. Then, on a typical Friday afternoon, an appointment with divine intervention causes these two very different lives to collide, beginning a journey towards restoration that only an all-knowing, loving God could weave together." 

This is not my normal type of book I generally read but I am really glad I chose it to read.  The way this book is set up it alternates between the two lead characters Lexi and Liz.  The story is very fast paced and you get sucked in from the beginning.  Each chapter features one of the lead character's.  I needed to know what was going to happen next especially to Lexi, her story really opened my eyes, especially about Foster Care.

Stars out of 5 : 5 a super book and opened my eyes to Foster Care.  I am looking forward to reading more of Chrissy's books.  http://www.facebook.com/chrissymdennis
