Here's the first line.
It didn't make sense for Liam to want to get closer to the lightning when every survival instinct told him to run.
Opening a book with a dream is pretty risky. The author needs to have a very good reason to do it. Rest assured, in this case, there is a very good reason which is revealed as you keep reading to find out exactly why he was dreaming about lightning and what happens to him.
Liam is a flawed protagonist, which is a good thing because the reader is pulling for him. This novel is very plot driven as Liam travels from one country to another learning valuable lessons not only about his special gift, but about people and life in general. Along the way he learns to forgive and trust others but not without great costs.
Here's part of the back cover blurb:
"Faith, Hope and Gravity" is the spiritual, magical adventure of teenage Liam Kane as he discovers some of the same lessons Merrill Osmond learned as the world-traveling lead singer of the Osmond Brothers.
Like Merrill, Liam is often misunderstood as he helps those seeking for purpose in their extraordinary talents. Liam's visionary abilities gain him international notoriety as "The Prophecy Boy" who swims with dolphins, dreams of a mysterious red door, and champions those who are often misjudged for their uncommon gifts.
Surviving kidnapping, near-drowning, and imprisonment leads to the discovery that despite differences, when people respect each other and their variety of abilities, the thread of commonality that runs through mankind grows ever stronger.
