Head to Heart, Fixing Failure, Grief and Anger; Finding Love, Grace and Mercy is a short chapter book about a boy, Josh, who unexpectedly becomes friends with a girl, Emily, and how Emily helps Josh understand who he really is, rather than the failure he believes himself to be.

She explains to Josh, “Everybody carries around this heavy, invisible backpack loaded with difficult memories. And, usually, from all those past memories, we form perceptions; and most of the time, those perceptions just simply aren’t true. But we convince ourselves they are, and then we live our lives based on those lies. Lots of heartache, Josh.”

Read Head to Heart, to find out how Emily is able to help Josh see himself as he truly is, and how this powerful story might help you do the same. Don’t peek, but you will be amazed by the captivating ending and its link to the past.

Head to Heart includes two posters to cut out from the back of your book that will remind you of your true identity, who you really are, along with the amazing recipe for Dad’s caramels spoken of in chapter three.
