Melody Carlson has done it again. Shattered is a great story of so many of the realities of life.

Cleo Neilson is seventeen years old and nearing her high school graduation. Things begin to blow apart at almost the very beginning of this book. Then the “Secrets” begin.

I will just tell you, if you don’t read Shattered, you will have missed a very wonderful Christian fiction book. It shows you that the Lord is with you no matter what and He will get you through what you thought was the worse of the worse.
