Marianne has done some great things with this series that I wish had existed for me as a young reader. The scriptures were always pushed on me and thus developed a relationship with them I'm trying to remedy to this day. Her books make them accessible and engaging. This one is no different and what's more, the "famous person" they meet on this adventure is a particularly delicate subject. The author must put words that aren't found in the scriptures in the mouth of these characters as they interact with Nathan and Aria. I was aprehencious when I was fist introduced to the idea, but found that Marianne handled it flawlessly.
