How to Become a Heroic Catholic ~ book review

(This is my fourth read-for-a-review.)

Want a book on Catholic apologetics for teenagers written by a teenager? This is your book!

This book is set out like a conversation with words like y'all (giving a really nice regional vibe) and epic. At first this stylistic decision threw me off, but it worked out quite well. HBHC is a book that is meant to help one with debates with Protestants, so a dialogue style works well for it. It also works well for the audience - young Catholic teenagers, though this book is great for older people, as well.

I was really impressed with HBHC. I was taught my Faith quite well, but I still learned quite a few things from this book. It also has become my go-to book for when I have a debate with Protestant friends with its handy Bible verses. I hear that Catherine is planning to write another apologetics-type book, so I'm really exited for that. :)

Alyianna's rating: 10 out of 10

P.S. Catherine is a friend of one of my favourite authors, Gina Marinello-Sweeney, so if you love Gina, read this. ;)
