Joey: An Inspiring True Story of Faith
Doubleday Religious Publishing Group, Mar 1, 1999 - Biography & Autobiography - 162 pages
Within the tiny life that is a newborn baby there exists the coded material that will evolve into a masterpiece of incredible proportions. Joseph Girzone's Joey tells the true story of a young boy--Girzone's own godson-whose life bloomed in just that way, unfolding in a magnificent adventure before it ended all too soon.
Joey was a boy born with a smile on his face and music in his heart, a boy who was to reflect all the experiences of youth: the wonder of existence, the adventure of finding new things, the joy of discovering new love, the pain of betrayed trusts and broken commitments, the endless searching for a meaning to life and its endless riddles, and the joy of finding a wonderful God who can bring all these complex facets of life into focus.
This story is about a rare and beautiful love between a young boy and God. It is a work that will give hope to the young and comfort to mothers and fathers who watch fearfully as their children enter the unknown world of life's adventure.

Review: Joey: An inspiring true story of faith and forgivenessUser Review - Azzageddi - Goodreads
Saccharine and oppressively religious. Forced to read this one as a freshman in high school, which is not surprising, since it was a Catholic school. Would have preferred they made us read something like Augustine's "Confessions," though. Read full review
