Looking for a new book for the tweens or teens in your life? Maybe a book that tackles religion? If so check out, Cheesus Was Here by J.C. Davis.
Cheesus Was Here
Sixteen year old Delaney Delgado doesn’t believe in God. She doesn’t believe in miracles either. She feels that if there were a God, her kid sister wouldn’t have died. So when the image of baby Jesus appears on her Babybel cheese wheel, she’s not impressed. She feels it’s not some divine intervention from the all mighty.
Suddenly, religious signs start popping up all over her small hometown. Religious pilgrims come from all over to find their own signs, and news vans start crowding the streets to document the phenomena. Del makes it her mission to prove that these “signs” are fake, and she enlists her best friend Gabe to help. Gabe happens to be the preacher’s son, so while he’s willing to play detective for Del, he’s more interested in finding proof that they are in fact signs from God. Now the whole town is caught up in these divine signs. Even late night talk shows have stopped laughing and making fun, and started believing. How will Del handle this? Will finding the truth just cause her more trouble?
Neither Pro nor Anti Religion
I think what I love most about Cheesus Was Here is that it’s not specifically pro religion, nor anti religion. It’s somewhere in the middle. It features a strong female protagonist, which I personally love. I think that our girls need to read more books in which their sex is at the helm. This book is a very enjoyable young adult fiction that kids from tween and older will enjoy. While reading they will explore deep themes with added humor. The characters are strong, fun, and will make readers laugh. I myself was caught chuckling aloud a few times while I was reading Cheesus Was Here.
