Pastor’s Kid Plot Summary

Meet Riley, a college student with a story that’s as real as it gets. She’s been through some tough stuff like people treating her badly and not understanding her family’s beliefs. So, she decides to run away from all that pain, thinking it’ll help her forget the hurtful things.

But guess what? Life throws a curveball at Riley. Something unexpected comes up and forces her to face the main source of all her troubles – her mom, who she hasn’t been on good terms with for a while. Now, Riley has to decide: keep on avoiding her problems or be brave enough to deal with them head-on.

Riley chooses to be brave. And this choice takes her on a powerful journey, kind of like a rollercoaster with ups and downs. It’s a journey filled with faith, which means believing in something even when it’s tough. Riley also discovers the magic of making things right, of redeeming herself from all the not-so-great stuff in her past.

As Riley walks down memory lane, remembering the not-so-awesome parts of her childhood, she figures out something really important – forgiving others can be a game-changer. It’s like a superpower that gives her the strength to break free from all the tough times she faced before. So, this is a story about Riley finding her way through faith, redemption (which means making things better), and healing (getting better from all the bad stuff). It’s like a journey of becoming stronger, wiser, and happier, even when life is hard.
