CROSSING THE DEEP has gotten some awesome reviews :) Here are some of them:
B.K (amazon comments)
I purchased this book on a Friday night and had finished it by Saturday night. I tried to put it down and get things done (I have 3 kids!) but I just couldn't. The story line and great characters kept sucking me back in.

Although I am a firm believer in God, I haven't had much interest Christian fiction myself, but this was a great book overall. The author does a very nice job of building believable and likeable characters. The plot starts rolling right away and you won't get bored or hit any lulls in this story.

You will walk away from this story still thinking about the characters days later.

Great story, you won't be disappointed you purchased this one!

C.S (Goodreads Review)
Went into this book with a preconceived notion that it would be ho-hum as I'm not a fan of many books that involve religion or prayer. But I was so pleasantly surprised and quickly fell in love with Rachel and Asher and Rachel's faith gave me something to think about. Wonderfully written and so enjoyable and NOT predictable. Hoping there is going to be a follow up and it becomes a series. Well done!

Kelly Martin is an amazing author! She really sets the bar high for her first novel. I really enjoyed reading this book. The descriptions of the Smokies alone make you feel like you are right there with the characters. I highly recommend this book and look forward to reading more from her!

Wow! A great read for teens or adults. Wonderfully written. From a great start to a fantastic finish. I can't wait for her next book.

Once I started this book I simply could not put it down! Crossing the Deep keeps you on the edge of your seat. Crossing the Deep is a thought provoking young adult Christian fiction story that tells about a church youth group's hiking trip to the Smoky Mountains and obstacles that they have to overcome in order to make it safely back home. Definitely a great read!

The cover alone captures your attention & leads you to a great story written by a new up and coming author. A refreshing young adult Christian novel sure to please!

If you enjoy fiction (and even if fiction isn't really you're thing) you'll be entertained by this young adult novel. I would certainly recommend it for any lover of a good action/adventure story.

... Had me crying in several spots. It points out one very important but little known fact; PASTORS DON'T HAVE ALL THE ANSWERS!!

B.G. (on a blog tour comment section)
WOW! I love that you started on a spiritual quest to read the Bible and ended as a published author! I love the "blurb" and can't wait to buy the book!
Have you read the book people are calling 'not your typical' Christian novel? If you have, I'd love to hear from you! If you haven't, please go to Amazon and read the first 3 chapters to see if it is up your alley. I think you'll enjoy it.
