Nicole by Jack Weyland October 5, 2008

Filed under: Book Reviews,Books,Fiction,Juvenile — Julie @ 7:15 pm

Nicole by Jack Weyland fits into the juvenile fiction genre and was published in 1993. It is recommended for readers ages 14 and up.

Jack Weyland writes for a LDS/Mormon audience and thus his books contain phrases and situations that may be unfamiliar to those outside the membership of this church. However, his books are clean in that they don’t contain foul language, immorality, or violence and thus they are quite refreshing to read in a world that seems full of such things. This specific book is about Nicole, a Senior in High School who happens upon a relationship with Josh Dutton, the star basketball player of not only her school but also of the state. She was surprised and hesitant at his interest in her at first but in the end they become good friends. Along the way she teaches him how to be a better person through reminders about how he should treat others. Josh also learns on his own through association with Nicole’s younger brother Richard who is mentally handicapped. He learns what is important in life and how not to judge others before you know them. This heartwarming story contains many good messages about relationships, service, and families. It is a quick and uplifting read for anyone desiring a change of pace.
