When Kristen Boone leaves Ashton, Idaho, to attend school at UCLA, she plans to pursue a career in theater and dance. But her plans are derailed when she meets Chad Nieteri, a wealthy, carefree, California boy who is intrigued by Kristen's wholesome Mormon values and begins dating her. What Kristen doesn't know is that Chad is also the leader of a gang of young men who support their extravagant lifestyles by impersonating police officers and stealing from illegal drug manufactures and dealers. When Kristen learns the truth about Chad and his friends, Chad sets out to silence her! Readers discover along with Kristen what true friendship means, and why the only way to find safety and real joy in today's world is to live the gospel.
My 16 year old daughter and I still have “story time” every night and Jack Weyland is one of the few authors we agree on. ‘Saving Kristen’ goes into our top 5 of his novels. (We’ve probably read 20!) It seems like he did some research on drug cartel and Southern Cali culture. And as always, it’s fun to read about Idaho !
I really enjoyed reading this book
I have read every one of his books and this one was way different. I was not expecting such a suspenseful novel! Wow! I could not put it down! This is an incredible read! You MUST add this one to your Jack Weyland library!
It was so amazing to see that Jack Weyland has written a book about things that could actually happen. Usually I read books that are just a story that is good for the characters but not in real life it seems, at least to me anyway. I loved watching Kristen grow and learn.
OH MY GOSH!! I read this book in less than 24 hours! I got addicted to it and couldn't put it down. That is a big compliment coming from a teenager... I really recommend this book to anyone...it has good lessons and a good story!
book was AWESOME...kept me interested all the way through til the end
This is one of my favorite Weyland books. Then again all of his books are my favorite. You just can't put them down.
