Outcasts by Jill Williamson (Review)

by Jill Williamson

(I received this book for review purposes.)

In Outcasts, by Jill Williamson, things are coming to a head.  Everybody has their own agenda and they think they’re.  This book focuses less on Mason and more on his brother, Omar, and their friend, Shaylinn.  They are younger than everyone else and they want to show that they can help everyone too.  Levi and Jordan disagree with them and everyone else.  They just want to save the rest of the Glenrock people from the government, then leave the area.

What is going to happen?  Will Omar and Shaylinn have a say in what happens?

About the Author- Jill Williamson currently lives in Oregon with her husband and children.  She has written other books and has won the 2010 Christy Award and the Epic Award for By Darkness Hid.

My Thoughts- Outcasts, by Jill Williamson, was a book I would usually begin reading and then put down and not finish.  It wouldn’t be because it wasn’t well written.  It would be because of the subject matter.

There were two people who really stood out to me, Shaylinn and Omar.  They were both young adults and were facing some tough situations, but their spiritual gifts began to shine through.  Shaylinn had the gifts of writing and encouragement.  She used those gifts to write notes to different people in the Safe Lands.  She gave some of those notes to Omar and they helped him.  He had also been sending messages, it was to the general public via the ColorCast.  I was impressed that the youngest people in the group who were the ones trying to make a positive impact. 

I enjoyed all the references to God and faith.  It showed me how important they are and how I can apply my faith in my life.  I highly recommend Outcasts.

  1. Thanks for reading and reviewing my book! Shaylinn and Omar are two of my favorite characters in the series because they were trying to use their gifts to help others more than themselves. I'm glad you liked that too. :-)
