Megan Johnsons' crisis of faith at BYU, triggered by spaghetti, sardine tag, wheelchairs, and green eyes, resolved by adoption and a goldfish. (Not adopting A goldfish, mind you.) Oh, and a grumpy old man at a nursing home.Megan Johnson knows what it is like to be afraid and alone. Determined to put that past behind her, she works to make people around her happy and accepted, keeping score with how many smiles she receives each week. Entering her second year at BYU, Megan is so successful that she has become the unofficial “entertainment director” for her group of friends – until the ripples of her past knock her life into ruins.Megan is left wondering if she can ever find the peace and joy that she longs for, the fulfillment that her faith promises. Even more puzzling to her is the question – *should* she?The Author never suspected that this book would find its way to a non-LDS audience. This edition has been given footnotes to explain some of the more Mormon-centric references in this story.
