I gave Saving Bobby and 4 outta of 5 stars because it is a story that I like and it was sweet and endering book.
Bobby is a 13 year old boy that doesnt have a lot of family and when his mother is sent the to the hospital all Bobby could think is why me? As a person that has lost her father and has lost many family and friends to cancer I knew what Bobby was feeling. Every where Bobby goes he is told by everyone that they will pray for his mom but for Bobby at this point he is questioning why his mom and not him. When one night at his Uncle Tony house Bobby gets it in his dead to find someone to save his mom since he thinks the doctors are not doing enough to save her. As Bobby sneaks out of Tony house one night and start his search to fine another hospital or doctor to help his mom he means Annie a girl he thinks might look familer to him but she is willing to help him find someone to help his mother. So with the help of Annie Bobby is on a mission to find someone and along the way Bobby meet people that help him to realize that he needs to put his faith in God and trust that God knows what he is doing. As a person that believes strongly in God I have always believe to put your problems in God and he will take care of it. It takes many people along the way to convince Bobby that he needs to do that. Reading Saving Bobby did make me cry & smile and the ending was sweet and I believe the true meaning of this story is when something bad happens that praying really does work and God is out there listening you just have to talk to him.
