From the moment their eyes met along the 19-21 bypass, Peter Cassidy was his.

It was a very inspiring and wonderful story. I can easily relate with the primary character, Pete because in this time of our lives, our world seems to be full of questions and we are confused of what to believe or lean on to. This story further emphasized God's role on a teenager's life and how teenagers deal with God's presence within them.
