Review: As PK (preacher kid) twins go, Jace and Eli really only look alike. Eli has the steady girlfriend and a clear path to following in his preacher father's footsteps. Jace breaks curfew, takes a few drinks, and doesn't have a plan. After a couple of drinks at a rainy night party, Jace calls Eli for a safe ride home which becomes anything but. When Jace wakes up, he finds Eli has died in a crash that night. Guilt eats away at both Jace and the rest of his family in different ways. It takes the strange girl from school that Eli tutored to put Jace on the right track, both spiritually and emotionally. A realistic male voice speaks well to teens who struggle with coming-of-age and troubles at home.
