EMPTY SHOES is really a wonderful book especially because there are many interesting characters including God. The main characters are Larisa, Joe, God, Eric a jazz choreographer, Larisa's brother Chipper and Alex, her best friend. This modern day book takes place mostly in Philadelphia.
I enjoyed this book so much not only because I love dancing but because it taught me some great lessons in life. The greatest lesson I have learned is to never judge someone by the way they look and to never let anyone push you around. We are all equally important in God's eyes! This book is so wonderful I would love to read it again. --by Jane McDonough- 5th grade St. Monica School, Whitefish Bay, WI
