Counted Worthy: A Novel
Heather Stone lives in fear of repeating the past, yet she continues doing the one thing that could trigger another disaster. When the police trace an illegal Bible to her house, Heather’s world begins to crumble.
Her father’s life hangs in the balance. No one with the power to help knows or cares. If she tries to save him, she could lead her friends to their deaths. If she does nothing, her father’s fate is certain. Can she evade a hostile police force and win public sympathy before it’s too late?
The message of Do Hard Things is back, but this time it’s wrapped in a story. This exciting new novel by rebelutionary Leah Good is set in a dystopian future America. Christians are persecuted, forced to recant, or executed. Bibles are destroyed.
But the underground church survives, in large part because of people like 16-year-old Heather Stone who rescues Bibles from book sorting centers and smuggles them to other believers.
Heather is a fictional character, but she represents thousands of real young people throughout history who have taken remarkable risks and made enormous sacrifices for their faith.

“Counted Worthy is quite possibly the best contemporary Christian fiction I’ve ever read. The strong, beautiful message is clearly conveyed without the slightest bit of preaching; something exceedingly rare in today’s Christian market. The premise, both unique and familiar, shines like a candle in the dark, forcing you to re-evaluate just how far you’d go with your faith. Ultimately, it instills a desire to follow God to the end of this world. Eagerly awaiting Miss Good’s next novel!”

Leah Good’s dystopian novel, Counted Worthy, powerfully embodies the message that today’s young people need to hear: the Reason we have to die to self, pursue the impossible, and when all else fails, to stand. This is the message that has the potential to turn a generation of complacency into a generation of inspiration.”
