Bombs Bursting in Air, by Lisa McCombs, earns the Literary Classics Seal of Approval
Americka is a typical teenage girl. She loves hanging out with her dad, even if that means watching war movies with him at the theater. But she can only take so much of the drawn-out battle scenes. So one day, towards the end of a movie, she sneaks away to the ladies' room. While there she meets a gal close to her age who is intent on escaping the chick-flick her sister begged her to see. The two learn they have lots in common, and after an extended period of side-splitting laughter they discover, to their horror, that during their time in the restroom the theater has been the target of a terrorist attack.
Author Lisa McComb’s Bombs Bursting in Air is a powerful depiction of the inherent struggles endured by those left to pick up the pieces following a senseless act of terror. McComb addresses the physical and emotional effects of PTSD including the pain, anger and frustration experienced by those left behind following the tragic loss of lives. As Americka works through her journey of healing, both physically and emotionally, she comes to seek answers from God as she discovers a peace she never thought possible. Wonderfully penned, this emotionally-charged book is highly recommended and earns the Literary Classics Seal of Approval.
