Anonymous Tip: In Which Gwen Gets Saved

girl-15780_1920

A Review Series of Anonymous Tip, by Michael FarrisPp. 195-198I am beyond frustrated with this section. Just beyond frustrated. Peter waited anxiously in the church parking lot for Gwen, Casey, and the Mansfields. He had barely slept all night, even though he left Gwen's by ten-thirty. His hear and his spirit did battle as he replayed over and over Aaron's counsel from Friday morning.

Mary Lambert and the Ups and Downs of Being a Survivor

abstract-772506_1920

In the time I've spent around survivor communities, one thing I've noticed is an alternating feeling of euphoria and despair. It is not uncommon for a person to feel they can take on the world one day and to feel like all they want to do is curl up and hide the next day.

Anonymous Tip: Donna Gets Some Character Development

girl-690327_1280

A Review Series of Anonymous Tip, by Michael FarrisPp. 193-195It's been a while since we've gotten a peak into Donna's personal life. We've only met Donna's boyfriend, Stephen, twice so far: once when we first met Donna waking up in bed with him back in chapter 1, and once when she told him about this particular case while eating lunch after the initial hearing. We know that he's from a  rich family and has daddy issues, and that he just graduated at the top in his class from Gonzaga Uni … [Read more...]
