After committing a felony, Tom Ledger boards a plane that changes his life forever. He escapes the crash with his life, but he can't seem to escape the mistakes of the past. Wondering why he lived and the man who sat beside him did not, Tom re-evaluates his life. What he sees is not much of a life; disconnected to his family and leaving the only girl he ever loved. In his climb up the corporate ladder, he has disregarded anything and everything that means anything to him. And somehow, he has lost himself. Is it ever too late to redeem yourself? Or can there truly be life after death?
The twist in this story came in it's final pages. Just when I thought I had it all figured out, Thrasher changed one crucial part of the story and suddenly everything was different. This book took me on a journey that was rich with excitement and made me care about Tom - even though he brought most of his troubles on himself. Watching him run away from the bad decisions that eventually ruined his life reminded me that in this life it is never too late to find redemption from the One who forgives and will change your life forever.

First time reading one of Mr. Thrashers novels and found it a good read with a surpise ending. It shows the consequences of "doing things my way" and how God uses alternate means to turn us to Him when we are unresponsive to His message. I do fault his aunt and uncle for not presenting Christ to Tom consistently when he was young. We need parents who don't force Christ on their children but who also take a stand for Christ.

Really enjoyed this book, and have passed it along. Nice twist in the plot, not what I expected, and not really a happy ending. This was the second travis Thrasher book I have read, and it will not be my last.

Super fast read. I enjoyed it. Read it over a weekend! It had twists and turns that I didn't see coming, which is hard to do because I read so much. I really wanted to know what happened next after that last page, but I guess it was implied...sort of.
