To begin this is a religious novel, to which I am not a religious person. With that I thought the first lines were very interesting as they went against what I thought the novel was originally going to be focused on. The author states " I don’t understand, God! I don’t understand! I don’t understand." I thought this was an interesting line since it is clear that the the author herself is of religious faith. I also thought the person was a contestant of Miss Arkansas. This did sway me for a second as it have biased thoughts about any Miss American or such. However, the author clearly states that the purpose of this book is to inspire young people and encourage them to follow their dreams. In terms of the writing itself, I found it to be nothing special. The author says things that most inspiration novels or videos would say. I also didn't care for the rhetorical footnotes. In the end this book was just not for me.
