Rated 4 out of 5 by from You can start over N. J. Lindquist brings young adult readers (and older ones too!) a compelling story of a troubled teen--a twin who doesn't quite measure up to his brother. Shane is flunking classes in school, fired from his job and his girl dumps him. Can it get any worse? Oh yes it can! His friends and family have pretty much given up on him, all but one and he introduces him to God. He's never even really thought about God--is He real? Can he help fix things that are going wrong? Is there some kind of magic to it all? The author tells a realistic story with characters who struggle with challenges that will resonate with many readers. In Time of Trouble is infused with drama, suspense, emotional tension and a reminder there is hope despite desperate circumstances and there is Someone who has promised to be right there with us through whatever is happening. I received a complimentary copy of this book from Book Club network. A favorable review was not required and opinions are my own.
