Two unknown producers struggle to fulfill their dreams to change lives through the power of film. With millions of investors’ dollars on the line, everything starts to fall apart and they realize they may be in over their heads. Is it possible to beat the odds and make a movie unlike anything ever done before? Or, will they lose everything in the process?

Could they change the world—before the world changes them? Filmmakers Chase Ryan and Keith Ellison left the mission field of Indonesia for the mission field of Hollywood with a dream bigger than both of them. Now they have done the impossible: raised enough money to produce a feature film with a message that could change the world. But as Chase and Keith begin shooting, their well-laid plans begin to unravel. With millions of dollars on the line, they make a desperate attempt to keep the film from falling apart—even as a temperamental actress, a botched production schedule, and their own insecurities leave little room for the creative and spiritual passion that once motivated them. Was God really behind this movie after all? A chance meeting and friendship with John Baxter could bring the encouragement they need to stay on mission and produce a movie that will actually change people’s lives. In the midst of the questions and the cameras, is it possible to keep things above the line and make a movie unlike anything done before—or is the risk too great for everyone?

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pretty Good Take One is the first novel in Karen Kingsbury's Above The Line series, and features appearances from the fan favorite Baxter family. Take One tells the story of producers Chase and Keith who have felt called by God to make an inspirational movie that they fell will have a huge impact on anyone who watches it. Unfortunately, many struggles and trials will block their path on the way to seeing the movie's completion, including struggles within their own families. While I didn't enjoy this one as much as I enjoyed the previous three series about the Baxter's, it was a great, faith based read that tackles many issues facing society today, and I especially loved getting to follow along with Bailey and Cody on their college journeys. :)
