About the Book:
Ever since Laci was a little girl she’s been growing out her pretty, brown hair and chopping it off to send to Locks of Love. When Greg moves into town and finds out what she’s doing, he thinks it’s a great idea…so he starts doing it too!

Somehow Greg and Laci’s continual attempts to help other people always seem to inconvenience reserved, young David and their hair growing efforts are just one of the things that David must tolerate as a friendship between the three develops throughout the years. As they near adulthood, however, David finds that he has grown not only closer to Greg and Laci, but closer to God as well.

Eventually David finds himself content in every way, but when tragedy strikes David must struggle to find his way back to God.

My Review:
This is an absolutely DELIGHTFUL read! It’s more of a YA book, yes, but I believe that EVERYONE should take the time to read this amazing novel by a definitely talented author. L.N. Cronk is fantastic with her words and meanings, and she instantly captured me in this moving, emotional and humorous story. 

David and Laci. Wow. There’s two characters to instantly fall in love with. I loved them both. When Greg entered the picture, it really added meaning to the story. Greg and Laci, along with David, were learning so much about God and what it means to give to others and not be selfish. It was awesome! I really loved the idea of growing your hair out super long and then chopping it off and donating it to Locks of Love. Totally awesome!

Throughout the novel, L.N. Cronk adds humor. It makes the novel pop with David’s humor and points of view. But, among the smiles and laughter, Cronk also weaves seriousness into the story with an incident that will leave you shocked. I found myself in tears…..both from laughter, and emotional, moving heartache.

I highly recommend this novel to everyone with 5 Books and two thumbs up! Cronk is a wonderful author who incorporates a powerful message from God into her characters’ lives and plot lines. This is the first book in her Chop Chop series and I can’t wait to go back and read the others! I want to follow more on these amazing characters and all the new ones Cronk has in store for her fans!
