Description

The summer is coming to a close and a new school year is beginning. Rising fifth-grader, Meg Wilson prays to be kind to those classmates who taunted her in third and fourth grades. She also prays "for a powerful purpose" for this year. Her purpose become a reality, when she witnesses a crime against a neighborhood canine named Josh.

It is a South Florida stormy night, a frightening confrontation with the dog's abuser, and parental objection that propels Meg into action, as she enlists the help of her younger brother, Ryan and her two best friends, Lindy and Alex to help rescue Josh. Meg must put her young faith to work to forgive, even the likes of Josh's abuser, W.C. Verner. But who is this Big Balooka? What is his fate? And, how does he become a hometown hero? Discover the serendipitous nature of answered prayer.
