I’d seen the movie but books are typically better than the movie as they can go into more detail, and this book was indeed a great read.
My friends suggested some Catherine Ryan Hyde books as they have read a number of her books recently and enjoyed them all. Turns out this was the only book available in my local bookstore the day I went. I’m glad it was.
What a wonderful story about a young boy, Trevor, who is challenged by a teacher to do something to change the world, and he does. Most of the time, he does not realize that people are indeed “paying it forward” to three other people after Trevor does them a good deed.
Then the world finds out this movement is happening and an investigative reporter is trying to find out who started it. Never did he imagine it was a boy.
A wonderful story, filled with good feeling for many and quite a bit of tension too as a relationship is strained…and a twist at the end I didn’t see coming even though I had watched the movie. (I guess I forgot 🙂
Anyway, a wonderful book that I could not put down.
