“The Whisper Theory” by By Amber Swenson
When I started this book I thought it was just a fiction story with Bible study questions at the end of the book. I soon found out that this is a fiction story that has in-depth Bible studies in-between each chapter. I only went through the first few Bible studies but I did read the whole story.
Meghan is attending college in Chicago and moves in with two other people. Her problem with this is she is a very strong Christian and her roommates are not. In fact she moves in with a girl named Carol and a boy named Jeff. Her parents aren’t too thrilled to have her living with a boy but she assures them they won’t be anymore then friends. Things soon change and Meghan is faced with many temptations and starts to have double standards to her beliefs. Her parents find things out and help her move away from this temptation. After moving from the situation her heart feels broken. Her roommate Carol decides to take her out for a night on the town where Meghan meets a great Christian guy. She’s not really interested in him at first but everyone around her tells her he’s perfect for her.
The story line was a but rough to get into but after a few chapters I was hooked. I wanted to see Meghan turn back to God and to trust her beliefs, morals. I did feel the story rushed it at the end but it was still believable to me. It actually sounded a bit like my love story at the end.
The Bible studies are very deep. If you’re wanting to just read through the story you’d want to skip the studies. However I would highly recommend doing the study, it gets you really thinking about your life and what God would like to see in it. The study is focused for Teens, so the whole book is perfect for any teen.
I would recommend this book for any teen wanting to do more soul searching in their lives, it’s perfect for them. The story with the Bible study really helps bring it into prospective.
