Finn isn't broken...
Finn Jansen isn’t broken. Yes, he lost his mother. Yes, his dad and brother had their issues. Yet none of it was about Finn, and he hates that everyone sees him as broken.
Piper Johnson, a girl he barely knows, suspects there’s more to Finn. Unfortunately, Finn is her sister’s best friend, and her sister is jealous, so Piper has to watch Finn from afar through middle and high school, rarely able to participate in his life. Worse, she’s smart and moves ahead in school, so she can’t participate in anyone’s life. Loneliness becomes the only sure thing in her world.
But Finn Jansen is indeed broken, and God wants to fix him, which means events fall into place that stretch Finn to his breaking point and beyond. He finds himself a foster child living next door to his best friend, but even the blessings there can’t quiet the voice inside that tells him he’s a monster, that his family’s hardships are his fault and he will never be worthy of love.
Piper is the only one who can bring Finn around, and he’s the only one who can see her true value and cure her desperate loneliness. Through a series of painful events, God pushes them together toward a situation where each must put him or herself aside and look out for someone else.
