Seventeen seconds can change a life forever. This is what Rex Connor learned on a gorgeous summer afternoon in 1970 when he diverted his gaze for seventeen seconds and tragedy occurred. Forty years later the waves of that day still ripple through the lives of countless people, including his son, Cole. Cole Connor is a patient teacher, and now he has invited three struggling teenagers to visit him to learn about Rex Connor—and the Seventeen Second Miracle. Together they will learn how Rex Connor could have allowed seventeen seconds to destroy him, but instead he chose to live every day believing the smallest acts of kindness could change the world. Cole’s students come to understand miracles can happen—but you must participate in them. A seventeen second miracle can change a life—if you let it.

    " This book had a good theme ("treat each other well", I suppose)but it was a little too Pollyanna for my tastes. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Linda | 5/5/2011

    " wonderful story that makes you believe.....
    believe in the kindness of stranges...believe
    that even the smallest of kind gestures is a miracle "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Melissa T | 4/19/2011

    " Sweet, sweet book. Made me cry. Made me want to be a better person. It's not going to win any literary awards, but I think it will improve anyone who reads it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Susan | 4/7/2011

    " A wonderful book, but be prepared with a box of tissues. It really makes you think about what small things can change a person's life.

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kathleen | 4/6/2011

    " Am I just simply weary of the Jason Wright formula...contrived, manipulative in a "heart-warming" way?? Feeling generous, I think that he is improving with experience, but HEY...it's a super quick read with a nice message should you choose to wade through the style to find it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Chris | 4/5/2011

    " This book had a nice message and an interesting story to bring it out. It has made me want to do little things to help others more! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Alicia | 3/30/2011

    " The author has a very fun writing style and the message is so uplifting. I highly recommend this for everyone. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lynette | 3/27/2011

    " I liked the idea of 17 second miracles, but the whole premise of the story seemed unbelievable to me. There is no way my parents would have let me go meet with a total stranger for "lessons" when I was a teenager. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Buttercup1201 | 3/23/2011

    " it started off great, slowed in the middle and picked up at the end. it didn't capture me like the wednesday's letters did. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Joani | 3/17/2011

    " A quick read set in Charlottesville. A good story, and I liked the way they dealt with disability too. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amy | 3/15/2011

    " Great read! Bit of a sad premise, but overall very inspiring "
