Publisher's Summary

Laura Sobiech tells the amazing story of how God used her son’s battle with cancer to touch the lives of millions.
"Okay, Lord, you can have him. But if he must die, I want it to be for something big. I want someone’s life to be changed forever." This is what Laura Sobeich prayed when she found out her 17-year-old son had only one year to live. With this desperate prayer, she released her son to God’s will. At that point, Zach Sobiech was just another teenager battling cancer. When his mother told him to think about writing good-bye letters to family and friends, he decided instead to write songs. One of them, "Clouds", captured hearts and changed not one life but millions, making him an international sensation. But Zach’s story is not just about music. It’s a testament to what can happen when you live as if each day might be your last. It’s a story about the human spirit. It’s about how God used a dying boy from a small town in Minnesota to touch the hearts of millions - including top executives in the music industry, major music artists, news anchors, talk show hosts, actors, priests and pastors, and school children across the globe. Zach once said, "I want to be known as the kid who went down fighting, and didn’t really lose." Fly a Little Higher is about how God used Zach to do something big.

One of my favorite audiobooks

Where does Fly a Little Higher rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

The top.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Fly a Little Higher?

The very beginning when Laura finds the words to comfort her son in his deepest suffering.

What does Amber Quick bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Expression, reality.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Just as it is--"How God Answered..."

Any additional comments?

I couldn't put it down. Afterwards, I searched for another book just as inspiring and so far, I can't find one that would move me as much as this one did. My problems I thought were so big in my life bringing up my children were "nothing" compared to the challenge Laura had to do. What a mountain she climbed day in and day out. This woman gave me a new perspective about suffering and triumph. I am humbled.
