Original Novel #8:
Point of No Return


"It's on fire!" Jimmy gasped. "It's on fire! Run!" Tony screamed from a distance. It was enough. Jimmy panicked and ran home.


Turning over a new leaf isn't as easy as Jimmy Barclay thought it would be - some old habits are hard to break. After years of being nagged by his family to go to church, something strikes in the depths of his soul, and he makes the biggest decision of his life. But is it a huge mistake?


His friends abandon him, his grandmother has fallen ill, and the only kid who seems to understand what he's going through moves away. Does it matter anymore if he tries to do the right thing? Is this the thanks Jimmy gets for trusting God? Is He there, and does He care? Through his challenges, Jimmy discovers that standing up for what you believe can be costly - and rewarding!

About the Series

Fans of the long-running audio series Adventures in Odyssey can hardly remember a time when there wasn't a Connie or a Eugene--or an Imagination Station. But there was. Now step back in time as these exciting novels whisk you away to the days before the popular radio show. Set in a time before the radio show, these stories often reference the beginnings of inventions like the Imagination Station, familiar characters like the Barclays coming to town, and other AIO references that fans enjoy.
