From the best-selling author of War Room comes a Christy Award finalist, now a Lifetime original movie called Child of Grace . "I believed everything my daddy told me until I walked into Wal-Mart and saw my picture on a little poster . . ." For as long as she can remember, June Bug and her father have traveled the back roads of the country in their beat-up RV, spending many nights parked at Wal-Mart. One morning, as she walks past the greeter at the front of the store, her eyes are drawn to the pictures of missing children, where she is shocked to see herself. This discovery begins a quest for the truth about her father, the mother he rarely speaks about, and ultimately herself. But when her father's past catches up with them, forces beyond his control draw them back to Dogwood, West Virginia, down a winding path that will change their lives forever.

I found this story to be a little too sad.

June Bug is a 9 year old girl who has spent her life driving across America in an old RV with her dad, a man with a troubled past. Their life is quite happy until the girl sees her picture on a “Missing Child” poster at Wal-Mart. The discovery starts June Bug on a journey of looking for the truth about her father and her family. Although June Bug is the novel’s protagonist, the story line is presented through the eyes of several narrators allowing for the pieces of the puzzle to come together while keeping the reader hooked. The story is one of adventure, self-discovery and familial ties that can never be broken. The novel also has a hint of detective mystery as June Bug’s past is investigated by other characters in the book. The book contains Christian undertones, as various characters take the strength needed from their religious beliefs without presenting an overpowering “preachy” dogma. Chris Fabry is the author of “Dogwood” with excellent reviews and Christ Award for this first novel in 2009

Great story. The author does a good job capturing the speech of the young girl.
