This book teaches parents the lesson that you shouldn't push your children to be more like you then themselves. The lesson of this book is encourage your children to be all that they can be but not to push them to be someone or something they aren't. This book shows that just because a person is in a leadership rule, we shouldn't trust everything they say but pray and ask God what is righ [...]

This exceptional story is the first I’ve read geared toward teens and young adults; and an enlightening book particularly for parents of teens to read regarding the evil existence of drugs and steroids found in and around our school systems.Written as a teen mystery, I was quickly drawn into the story as Margaret McWhorter hears her brother Sean explaining to his father that he was replaced as a qu [...]

    • Stopped ColdMargaret McWhorter, a freshman at Meriwether Christian School, loved her brother Sean. When Sean was taken off the football team and replaced by Harold Gravitts, she was really upset. What bothered her more was their dad’s reaction to him being removed from the football team.

His dad wanted Sean to be a carbon copy of himself, and didn’t al [...]


    • Stopped Cold is a wonderful story about Margaret McWhorter's brush with drug dealer's when her big brother had a stroke taking drugs that were meant for animals. Sean was upset when he was replaced as quarter back by a new kid and he knew it wouldn't go well for him as his dad wanted him to surpassed his record. His dad had pushed him most of his life and was disappointed when he lost his position. Even his little sister's eyes held sympathy when their dad roared to get his position back by any [...]


    • Stopped Cold by Gail Palotta kept me going from beginning to end, and I had to read it all in one sitting. Great and relevant story re: steroids, but I never saw the twist of how Sean got the drugs, or why he used them. What a great bond between brother and sister, and I loved the faithfulness of friends old, Emily and new, Jimmy. The idea to have this take place at a Christian school is great, because the same kind of stuff that goes on in regular school system goes on in these Christian settin [...]

    • This was a good book and I loved how the author was able to make me feel Maggie's emotions. There were times that I thought the story slowed down a bit, but it still was able to keep my attention and had me wondering who sold Sean the drugs. There is a lesson in this book to be learned by child and parent and I hope those who read it will realize that our children are a reward from the Lord and we need to encourage and lift them up to be the best that they can be. There is so much more I could s [...]

I would definitely recommend this book to everyone! I would love to read more books by Gail Palotta. I received this book from bookfun for my honest revie [...]

    • Stopped Cold is a simple story, despite the mystery storyline. It is a coming of age story. As we read, we see the characters making choices that will determine how they choose to live their lives. Most of the story paints Maggie’s struggle. She wants to make the drug dealers pay and is willing to brave dangerous circumstances to see that through.Try as hard as I could, I just couldn’t like Maggie’s character. Some of the choices she made were not only dangerous, but also irresponsible. It [...]

Maggie's brother had taken steroids to enhance his endurance in order to make a comeback, and reclaim his position on the team. His coach had replaced him with a [...]
