First Wild Card Tour: Online with God by Laurie Lazzaro Knowlton (Book Review)

It is time for a FIRST Wild Card Tour book review! If you wish to join the FIRST blog alliance, just click the button. We are a group of reviewers who tour Christian books. A Wild Card post includes a brief bio of the author and a full chapter from each book toured. The reason it is called a FIRST Wild Card Tour is that you never know if the book will be fiction, non~fiction, for young, or for old...or for somewhere in between!

REVIEW:  Written in the style of a young girl blogging to God, this puts Him smack dab in the middle of a junior high girl's life.  Even though the writing is simple enough for a tween/teen to understand - reading as an adult there was still a lot of gems that would apply to my life as well.  Each devotion is only 2 pages long with a short "Stepping Up" section that pretty much lays it on the line about how you should act in certain situation.  What I liked was if the Internet came into play at all, they gave all the safety features you could install or what the proper etiquette would be online.  It ends with a "Let's Talk" which is a short prayer you can pray.  Would be a great gift for any girl just entering junior high, but I am going to share it with my high schooler as well.


Laurie’s first published work was a note passed to a boy in elementary school. You would have thought that this most embarrassing moment would have stopped her writing career. But instead, Laurie is the author of thirty five books and author/illustrator of two more. Laurie lives in rural Ohio with her husband and two daughters.
