Back Blurb:
Shale Snyder is a girl who has been a victim of what happens in society today. Emotionally, she has been damaged, thanks to bullies and torment in school and a broken home that left her abandoned. Like many others in her situation, she longs for something else deep down and she hopes to someday find what it is she is longing for. 

My Review:

        First off, a BIG thank you to the author, Lorilyn Roberts, for giving me a copy of The Door in exchange for my honest review. I really appreciate it.
I really liked this book. It was like a modern day Narnia and, for a girl who loves Narnia as much as I do, a modern day Narnia is right up my alley.
The plot was really good and well written, all though there were some things that I didn’t quite understand, but that may just be because I’m a little dense. (lol) I loved how Ms. Roberts incorporated minor Bible characters that you read about once or maybe twice in the Bible and then never hear about again into her story. I enjoyed reading about a character’s healing and then thinking “Hey I remember reading about him in the Bible!” and then “So that’s what could’ve happened after he was healed…” It really got my brain spinning.
The main character was kind of annoying. It was almost as if she were bipolar or something. She seemed ‘not real’ I guess (but, again, that might just be me). And I tried and tried and tried to hate Judd and like Daniel but I just couldn’t do it. Judd was just bitter and he got a little better toward the end. Daniel, was just dense.
The Door is a great book and I cannot wait to get my hands on the second book in the series!
