From amazon.com review:
This is a high quality hardcover book. The illustrations are beautiful and
the text engaging. I gave it to my 14-year-old son to read to his younger
brothers and sisters, and they all give it the thumbs-up.
Mr. Aquilina managed to make St. Jude more than a figure on a prayer card for
me and my children. (That is not an easy task, considering the sparseness of
the historical record.) I feel that I know St. Jude as a real person, someone
who will pray for me when I am in need. Especially if that need is a hopeless
An interesting aside is that this book was written by a twelve-year-old boy,
son of Catholic author Mike Aquilina. It is easy to see that Michael Aquilina
III has developed his father's writing talent.
I look forward to reading St. Jude: A Friend in Hard Times over and over
again to my children. I recommend it highly.
