I did not know what I would get when I picked up this novel. It was a kindle freebie that looked interesting.
What I got was a well written piece of youth literature with a Christian slant. In Between is a coming of age story of a teenage girl who is trying to adjust to a new foster family. The novel is notably for young adults, however is enjoyable for adults as well.
If you are not big into a Christian slant to your literature you can still very much enjoy this novel. The main character is not all that sure about it having a Christian slant either. However, it is nice to read a novel with a clean plot, clean language, and one that is focused on the love of a family instead of romance.
I thoroughly enjoyed this novel. I could not put it down. The writing was refreshing. While it will probably not become a classic, it was a great read, with depth. The characters were multi layered, allowing the reader to connect to all of them from various points. Even the supporting characters were more then just cardboard cutouts. The humor and exuberance of the main character really adds to the story as well.
