In Everything Give Thanks

Fiction by Terry Barnes.

This story is about a teenaged boy called Matt and is set in 1963. At the beginning of the book, we learn that Matt's father has just been unexpectedly killed, and that Matt is having a really hard time dealing with it. In particular, Matt struggles with the idea of how God could possibly allow such a thing to happen, especially since Matt's dad was such a good Christian. He turns his back on God and develops a bad attitude, and things are not made better when a new neighbor moves in, seeming to cause him even more grief.

This was a good story, a kind of coming-of-age type of book. I'm not sure that the title really fits; it's kind of about learning to give thanks when things are bad, I guess.
