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?
