Readers who love a fast, gripping read with lots of reality and a bit of fantasy thrown in.

The Christian message is subtle. Perfect for family, friends and pupils who have no church background, to sow the thought that maybe there is something more than we can see with our eyes, and there is another way to live than the endless round of hatred.

This is an exciting book which doesn’t shy away from some of life’s starkest troubles.

“The Only Way is a moving, fast paced, gripping and genius piece of writing. A ‘must read’ for everyone.” – G.P. Taylor, New York Times best-selling author.

The girl is mysterious and it’s good that you don’t know much about her. The boy has quite a hard life; I liked the bet where he had to live off the land. The Christian side of the book is subtle; I think it would be helpful to someone who is unsure about their faith. This is a very good book.” – George

Chapter One

Did you ever feel like you were getting it all wrong? Not just when you told a lie to get yourself out of trouble. Not just when you upset someone because you didn’t really care how they felt. But always? Did you ever feel like even when you tried to get it right you ended up getting it wrong? Like your friends were getting it wrong as well – and your parents too. Like all the crazy people on the news were getting it so badly, so unbelievably wrong. Yeah? Me too. Well guess what . . . you’re right. There is a better way. And this is the story of how I found it.

  1. Amy

    This was a page turner! The element of mystery surrounding the character of Lily gives a gritty story a flavour of magic – or magical realism, perhaps? The Christian imagery is beautifully woven in, there for the noticing, but could probably go unnoticed until the last page by a reader unfamiliar with it. The character of the narrator is very relatable. I really enjoyed this book.

    “Wow! You don’t often find a book like this. It walks that fine line between our world today and a whole other spiritual world. It offers depth and hope to kids who are struggling. It will appeal to a wide range of readers. Brilliant!”
