Heather Letto, author of the new young adult fiction book entitled Impervious  (Bookfish), is offering readers a chance to download her entire book for free, one chapter each day,during the month of August.  Additionally, Letto has created a bible study that is also available for free.  The study guide expands on the topic of heaven that the fictional tale of the city of Impervious represents. Letto says the main theme of Impervious revolves around heaven and earth and what happens after death, but it also depicts issues that afflict many teenagers and youth.

“Young adults often struggle with fitting in,” says Letto, “so another dominant theme in the book is about resisting peer pressure to find truth. Sometimes on our search for truth, the path may seem very shadowed, confusing or lonely, so a theme of perseverance and bravery is also found with the heroine, Fran.  Finally, finding The Reader is a monumental experience for our heroine in the story. The Reader symbolizes the bible in our own society.  Therefore, believing in what you can’t see, a.k.a. faith, is another major theme.”

Letto says Impervious is the first of three installments in what is being called the “Ascension 
Series.” Letto says book two will introduce the character of Retter which will represent a “savior”figure, and the third book will show an allegory of the Holy Spirit and move into the final destruction of the city.  Letto hopes the free bible study will help readers connect the dots.
