I loved this book! The first part was a little sad, but I still enjoyed it very much. I only found one part that wasn’t Biblically accurate: when SPOILER ALERT!!Jesus ascends up into heaven, only a few disciples were there. But in the book, a whole bunch of people are SPOILER END!!. It was only a little thing, and I think the rest of the book makes up for it. Amazing! This is a very heartwarming book. 🙂
