I finished a truly wonderful piece of YA fiction this week: Staying Fat For Sarah Byrnes. It was recommended to me by my sister, who has unusually good taste in YA fiction. This book really grappled with the issues of faith and courage that we all face. It's about standing up for yourself and others and loving, truly loving your neighbor. The author, Chris Crutcher, is pithy and honest; a perfect combination for youth fiction. I would highly recommend this book to anyone who is looking for a good read.
