Book Review: Truth Seekers

Twins, Jake and Jen, endure a move to Israel to stay with a father they barely know all-the-while mourning for their deceased mother.

Bill Myers creates an interesting book for teenagers to learn about trusting God for everything. Cool machines, quirky scientists, interesting facts, silly humor, and spiritual elements make their way creatively throughout the book. I love how the author makes references to the spiritual world of demons,  which most authors refrain from, and  shows how to handle them biblically.  

Whether it be when Jen learns to grow in her relationship with the Lord, getting over the fear of demons, and learning to love, each character's personal problems teaches the reader a lesson. 

The twins did some questionable actions including stealing a woman's wig, breaking and entering, and did not receive any consequences. The sometimes overplayed humor seemed to degrade the literary work, but no doubt younger children will love it. 

I received this book for free, from BH, in exchange for this independent and unbiased review.
