Wakulla Book Reviews: The Aftermath and The Right Person, by Stacy Padulla


Title: The Aftermath

            "This is a story about a high school kid named Jason Davids who is dealing with peer pressure, alcohol, and drug abuse. He also finds himself caught in the middle of a spiritual battle. Luckily he has several Christian friends praying for and giving him good advice. But he also has a girlfriend and older brothers pressuring him to get high and party.

            Stacy Padula did an excellent job of highlighting the power of prayer and the power of the Holy Spirit to work through those who are willing to be obedient to His promptings—and how this combination will always bring God’s grace, love, and light into the darkest of people.

            This book has so many great messages for kids and young adults to learn from. And all of them have the foundational truths from God’s Word.

            I absolutely loved and enjoyed this book. So much so that any book I see written by Stacy Padula I will gladly read it.

            This book is mainly aimed at young adults, from 12 on up. But it holds so much truth and Godly advice everyone who loves God’s Word will enjoy it. And I’m confident they will recommend it to every teen they know." —Leon

Title: The Right Person (Montgomery Lake High #1)

            “The Right Person” is a story about people looking for acceptance. It raises an important question that faces almost everyone: what am I willing to do to fit in and be accepted by my peers? Ms. Padula takes this a step further and raises a more important question: whom should I be seeking acceptance from?

            Stacy Padula accurately describes the moral issues that teens and adults face: smoking, sex, drinking, drugs, lying, cheating, and disrespect. Ms. Padula weaves a tale that involves many characters who are each facing their own battles and struggles. She gives the reader just enough information about each one to bring the story together. She also gives the solution to each character’s struggle: Jesus.

            By the end of this book, I had tears in my eyes, as I could relate to the struggles they were going through and the deliverance they receive from God through Jesus. This is a book I’d like to have had when I was a teen! Well written, and the Gospel is shared without compromise! Stacy A. Padula is a voice God is using that will share the message of love, forgiveness, and acceptance to the world that needs to hear it!" —Loren
