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!

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.
