Another family is spending the summer at the lake and A.J. meets her soul mate, Danny Morgan, who shares her love of star-gazing and God. But Danny's family is falling apart. His father's had an affair and Danny just knows his mom will forgive him again. A tragedy causes everyone to look at how precious life is and consider that God can change even the hardest hearts when forgiveness is offered.
Saving Sailor is a wonderful story about a girl just loving life. A.J. is funny and smart and I enjoyed her hysterical moments in catechism classes and her mother's impersonating Sophia Lauren and giving autographs to the public. What a funny, sweet, and heartwarming story.
That being said, I loved this book. Really. Absolutely. The main character is not a typical child, caught in trivialities that make you want to roll your eyes and stuff your finger down your throat as you are forced to reflect on the old adage, "Youth is wasted on the young." Young A.J. is an inquisitive and thoughtful girl. The author has captured innocence and whimsy without washing it over with stupidity or pettiness. Her parents aren't blustering morons or enemies, but clever and amusing people who are decent, devoted and loving. Everyone here has their faults, but their personalities and characters pull them through everything. Fall in love with A.J., with her dog Sailor, her wacky father, eccentric mother and even the most obnoxious cousins on the planet. Even after you've finished reading it, you'll find that Sailor is indeed still worth saving.
