Leading horse rides in Mexico had sounded so simple...

Needing to escape from a painful family situation, Matt Tucker jumps at a chance to lead horse rides at a Mexican Christian summer camp  with his uncle.  He isn't sure how he feels about God at the moment, but anything is better than watching his parents come apart.

 

What he doesn't bargain for is teammates.  As he shares a hut with two guys, one grieving a loss, his aunt and uncle, who know things about him better kept secret, and a girl who instantly dislikes him,  he decides being home might not be so bad.

 

But Matt is lost, and God wants him found, so he deals with everything from sick roommates to  being lost in a foreign marketplace to getting stuck in Mayan ruins as he opens up to new friends and a new relationship with God. The hardest part of the summer, though, is knowing eventually it will be over, and he wonders how to take everything he's learned and fit it into his old life.  Maybe God wants more from Matt than just one summer...
