I've had such a hard time getting through this book.
Yes, Rachel was a true servant of God. Yes, Rachel loved humanity.
Yes, Rachel struggled with temptation, and everything else we all go through, but I don't understand why she had to be written about.
A martyr? I'm more than halfway through the book and I've yet to come across anything that says or suggests that she was targeted because of her religious beliefs.
Rachel was loved, and admired by those who knew her, but I don't think that her relationship with the Lord was any better or any worse than those of other believers. I've been a born again christian for the past 16 years, and all Rachel went through while in school, I went through, and that didn't make me better or worser than the person next to me.
Rachel had a deep relationship with God that many teenagers her age don't have. She wanted to be used by God. She wanted heads to turn when she walked by. That's great. She was dear and special. That's great, but I'm missing something and I don't know what it is.
I truly believe that instead of writing about Rachel herself, her parents should've published all her beautiful poetry and drawings. She was obviously a very talented young lady who had so much to offer, and yet her life was cut short by two boys who obviously needed a lot of help.
I wish I could give this book more stars, but I just can't justify my doing so.

I was originally motivated to pick up this book after reading "No Easy Answers" by Brooks Brown in which there is a chapter describing his brief friendship with Rachel and how an amazing person she was. When I saw that her family had published a few books about her, reading this one wasn't even a question.

First of all I don't really believe that either one of the killers targeted Rachel (or any other victim for that matter) specifically since their original plan was to blow up the cafeteria and execute the survivors. Either way, regardless of their motives and whether some victims died for their faith or not, it did not take away the profound message of the book or lessen it in any way whatsoever. I thought this book was really inspiring for both religious and non-religious people of all ages to read. I truly enjoyed how it was written in a very simple and light tone instead of something overly serious and depressing since it's clear right from the start that Rachel loved life and would want to be remembered for her fun-loving spirit and not the brutal way her life came to an end.

Some people might be unsure whether or not they should read this book because they aren't religious or spiritual etc. but this book is not about religion, it's not about gaining followers for any religion or church, it's about Rachel's life and what faith did for her. Of course there is plenty about God and Rachel's relationship with him since it's what motivated her to be the amazing person she was but you don't need to be religious whatsoever to enjoy it. The book challenges the reader to follow Rachel's example of kindness, compassion and understanding towards others, not to become a Christian.

What an amazing young woman. I felt privileged to share in her young life and in her family's grief at her brutal murder - along with the murder of 12 other people on April 20, 1999 - and in their ongoing attempts to heal and to spread her message of faith and hope.

Her story - as she had hoped when she was alive - is inspiring and uplifting, and can make a difference in those that read this book.

We all our hope that our lives will make a difference. That when we pass from this world something about us will live on in the people that knew us and perhaps in people that we don't know we've touched.

Pick up this book and discover a young girl's spiritual life that challenges even those who have been Christians all their lives. And for those who don't know Christ, yet, can help show the difference He made in her life.

While I have never met Rachel (I know I will when I get to heaven), I have no doubt that she was as "real" a Christian as one could ever hope to meet. When I pass on, I can only hope people remember me as a person who "walked the talk", started a "chain reaction" and showed Jesus' love and compassion to others.

Thank you, Rachel. You have done more in your short life than many Christians have done in a lifetime!

Format: Paperback
A 17-year old girl has changed the world and you may not even know her name. She was the first victim of the Columbine school shooting tragedy. Her funeral was broadcast on CNN with the largest viewing audience than any other broadcast, including Princess Di's funeral. She was a sister, a student, and an actress. But more importantly, she was deeply connected to God's will for her life. She predicted her life to be short but full of impact. She was right. Rachel Joy Scott continues to live through the message she carried in her daily living. And the book her parents wrote about her faith is an important read for all. Beginning with a heart wrenching dedication to each buried victim, the reader is given a glimpse into the aftermath for the unburied victims as well. Rachel's parents relate their experiences and thoughts of Rachel, but also include excerpts from her journals, and conversations Rachel had with her peers. Interestingly, her parents learned much more of her life after she died: how intimately passionate she was about sharing her faith, how she cared for the outcasts at school, how she struggled with typical teenage banes. This book has some bold lessons for all to learn, including forgiveness of the two murderers, who were no more than boys themselves. It is a testament of God's faithfulness to help you overcome whatever obstacle you face. It is a must-read for any young adult and inspires delicate yet firm belief in God's purpose. I have heard her father and sister speak about her life and her challenge to us all to do just one good deed each day. This printed account is just as powerful. It is the life of Rachel Joy Scott. Now you know her name. Now read her story.
