Right Where I Belong is the newest teen novel by Krista McGee. I have to admit that I choose to read this book because of the name of the author! Clearly, God was using that to His advantage, because it turned out to be just the book I needed right now.
Right Where I Belong is inspired by the story of Ruth in the Bible. Fifteen year old Spanish born Natalia follows her recently divorced stepmother, Maureen to America after her father breaks Maureen’s heart. Maureen is the one who introduced Natalia to God and Natalia feels an allegiance to her and at the same time is disgusted by her father’s actions. Her adventure in America allows her to find new Christian friends, grow in her faith and God’s call for her life.
Throughout reading this book, I kept thinking- this is a very sweet book. Its the kind of book that you want to read while sitting on the beach or in the park on a warm spring day. Its a feel good book- the Lifetime movie of books.
I really connected with Right Where I Belong at this point in my life. As a Christian, it reminded me of many of God’s important promises that He gives us in the Bible. Such as, a promise for a hope and a future and the promise to give us good gifts. It was really interesting to watch Natalia navigate her newfound Christianity and learn what it means to pray for God’s will in her life.
I also really enjoyed Natalia learning to live in a new culture. As you can imagine from our experiences in Germany, I could really relate to her adventures. If you are looking for a feel good, easy read that also offers a great dose of encouragement, I would definitely recommend Right Where I Belong by Krista McGee.
