Have you read this? If not, you should!

"SEVENTEEN SECONDS can change a life-forever. This is what Rex Connor learned one summer afternoon in 1970 when his gaze was diverted for just seventeen seconds and tragedy occured. Forty years later the waves of that day still ripple through the lives of many people, including Rex's son Cole."

This book is amazing! I'm giving it five stars...but I will admit something. For whatever reason, I couldn't quickly get through this book, not until about halfway through the book. It has a great message, which I can describe simply as this...the main story plot, which you will have to read to find out....is the basis of the seventeen second fraternity. What do we do in seventeen seconds? Do we make an impact? Do we stop and take the time to notice the seventeen second miracles that take place everyday? I just love Jason Wright. He wrote Christmas Jars and Recovering Charles. Both great books bytheway. It leaves you thinking...and thinking for the greater good. Get your Kleenex!
