This is a boy named Colton, he nearly died because he had appendicitis. While he was having surgery he left his body and went to heaven.

      

        About the author: Todd Burpo was born August 5, 1968. He is 46 years old.Todd Burpo currently is the pastor of Crossroads Wesleyan Church in Imperial, Nebraska.His book " Heaven is for real" is the #1 selling New York Times bestseller.  

       This book is about a little boy named Colton, who had to get surgery because he had appendicitis. While in surgery he left his body and went to HEAVEN!!! He returned to his body minutes later. After surgery doctors said that it was a miracle Colton survived the surgery, most patients don't. A few days later he told his mom "he had another sister that died in her stomach". He told his dad he had a grandfather who died in a car accident". Colton's dad asked him "what did everyone in heaven look like" Colton said " everyone is young". Many people didn't believe him but Colton believed himself because he experienced it.

      The characters in this story are: Colton Burpo, Todd Burpo ( Colton's dad),Sonja Burpo ( Colton's mom), and Cassie Burpo ( Colton's big sister).

      The setting(s): Burpo's Home, Denver Butterfly Pavilion, Imperial Nebraska, North Platte Nebraska Great Plains Regional Medical Center,Denver Children's Hospital, AND Heaven!!!!!   

      The main idea of this story is a boy named Colton, who had a trip to HEAVEN and came back to earth NOT as an angel. This story is HEAVEN according to Colton.... To be CONTINUED!!

      My opinion of this book is that you should read it because its a loving and caring book also a funny book.

     My favorite part in the book was when the doctor said that Colton's surgery was a success. That made me feel warm inside because knowing that he was one of many people to ever LIVE during the procedure was a relief because i thought he wouldn't make it. This book really pulls you in because when Colton talks about what he saw in Heaven you would want to see it yourself, and it makes you wonder is that what heaven really looks like?
