Sarah Johnson and her family were going on a mission trip to help build schools in Guatemala. Enroute to the small village, the plan she was on crashed. Eleven of the fourteen people on board were killed, including her father and brother. Her mother was seriously injured, and events would also damage their relationship. This memoir is a record of that time, her struggles, her families flaws, and how she managed to overcome the most traumatic even to occur in her lie and how she found her faith again.

This book was a very quick and very short read. The author is very detailed about things that went on, and about her family. Some of it was very sad, such as her dad’s meth use, and her mother’s anger issues with her over events of the wreck. I found her to have a very inspiring and interesting story, and it kept me turning the pages wanting to see how someone can still see the good in life when almost everything they’ve loved was taken from them.
