The Game Changer
Black & White on White paper
BISAC: Fiction / Christian / Suspense
Mike and his best friends, Triton and Brazon, had been plotting pranks at Zeek's expense for years. At first the stunts were run-of-the-mill: jerking his chair away when he sat, dunking his head as he drank from the fountain, or hiding his clothes after gym class. But the game became more devious and dangerous. The night they dared Zeek to scale a corn bin, forcing him avoid a barrage of BB's from their guns, Mike decided he was fed up with the pranks. However, his evening became even more troubling when he was drawn to Zeek's home to silently witness a disturbing scene of abuse. Was God at work, purposely allowing him a glimpse into Zeek’s private life? The scenes from that evening haunted Mike until he heard a clear directive from God: he was to befriend Zeek and end the daily torment from his friends. But this was one challenge he wasn’t prepared to face.
Mike soon learns that losing his old friends and becoming the new target of their bullying is impossible to endure without God's help. Yet he grows stronger in his faith with each struggle. He is rewarded with a strange, new friendship and growing admiration for Zeek. However, as Mike's faith becomes deeper and stronger, so does the evil that he faces. But he is not alone. Trapped in the shadows of an abandoned warehouse as they witness a terrifying scene, Mike and Zeek make a desperate 9-1-1 call and are amazed at how God answers.
