“Phillip Telfer is a master story-teller, drawing the reader into a tale that is both epic and intimate. This book is an unexpected reading adventure with an irresistible plot line, curious characters, and exotic cinematic backdrops. Why Save Alexander showcases Telfer’s rare knack for supplying pithy and profound cultural insight. He blends high stakes drama and winsome fun with a deeply thought-provoking message to produce a delightfully soul-stirring tale.” ­—Eric Ludy, bestselling author and pastor

“An intriguing and masterful story. Phillip Telfer provides an amazing storyline with unforseen twists and turns that made me want more. His acumen in weaving a tale of spiritual and emotional growth in a teen was superb. I highly recommend this novel!” Aaron M. Zook, Jr., Author

“Phillip Telfer is a dear friend and a wise and engaging communicator whose heart for Christ and the gospel is evident in all that he does. This book is embedded with an important and timely theme for our generation.”—Stephen Kendrick, Film Producer and Bestselling Author

“Teens and young adult men and women will enjoy and benefit from this book. It’s full of action vividly described. It moves quickly and will engage the reader. This gripping story is full of much truth. In clever and creative ways, Phillip causes readers to think about and evaluate their lives, relationships, goals, purposes, and passions. They may not even realize they’re thinking about these things while enjoying the book, but it will be good for them. I expect some readers will make changes in their lives because of Phillip’s important story. I don’t read much fiction because it doesn’t move me, but I could not put this book down.” —Kathy Koch, PhD, Founder and President, Celebrate Kids, Inc., and author of Screens and Teens: Connecting with Our Kids in a Wireless World

"An entertaining story driven by values you can feel good about." —Craig Brian Larson, Author and Blogger

“There was a time in my life—many moons ago—that I read for fun. Give me a Hardy Boys mystery or Nancy Drew novel (not just for girls!) and I would be transported into a world of adventure and intrigue where the good ‘guys’ accomplished something daring and noble. That was then. Now? Two of my last books have been about theology and religious criticism. I just don’t take the time for mystery and adventure. But I should.  Why Save Alexander started out as a read as a favor for a friend, but morphed into a nostalgic throwback—only with a Christian underpinning that came naturally in this story. And left me wanting to read the next book in this series—if one should be written.”  —Bob Waliszewski, Former Director of Focus on the Family’s Plugged In

“Phillip Teller tells a good story here that is sure to engage the young teen as well as adult reader. Why Save Alexander walks the fine line between the real world and the metaphoric, but leaves the reader with a firmer grasp on reality—God’s reality—real reality. The message could not be more powerful and important for the post-modern, thoughtful reader.”  —Kevin Swanson, Author, Speaker, and Host of Generations Radio Broadcast

“A memorable coming of age story. I've never read a book quite like this one. The plot is unique and has some unexpected twists. I highly recommend it to teens and young adults who love adventure, coming of age, or heartwarming stories.” Rachael L. (Amazon review)

“The plot is unique and has some unexpected twists but contains some enduring values that undergird the story.” Wayne S. Walker (Amazon review)
