Maggie Vaults Over the Moon has earned praise from athletes and country folk for its realistic depictions of the sport of pole-vaulting, and farm life. Now an athletic and spiritually aware teenage reviewer is praising the story for its deeper message.
Holly Smith’s review appears in the latest issue of Unity Leaders Magazine, the international publication of Unity Worldwide Ministries. Smith, a high school senior, is a cross-country runner and a leader in the International Youth of Unity program.
In reading the novel Smith writes, “I gained a greater appreciation for myself, and realized that I can do anything, no matter in what circumstance I might find myself. [Author Grant] Overstake gives the reader a personal sense of empowerment through all the struggles Maggie goes through, since they are relatable to everyday life.”
