Product Description

On night, Maggie comes home for youth group to learn that her mom and dad just had another huge fight. But this time, her dad is moving out--as in "there's-nothing-in-the-closet-not-even-an-unmatched-sock" moving out. This one looks bad.

My life is officially over.

Maggie blames her mom for her family's disintegration. "She's driven him away with her constant nagging and complaining and arguing. Honestly, who could stand to live with that woman?" she vents to her friend Claire. Hoverer, there's more to the story, and Maggie desperately wants to know the truth--something nobody seems willing to tell her.

    I am tired of lollipop, sugarcoated Christian teen fiction for girls. This book is not like that. It does not have the "happily ever after" or the "family reunites" no this is the real deal. This is a great book. I loved reading it.

    Once again, Melody Carlson focuses on another subject that is touchy among the Christian church. Divorce is not something a lot of people like to talk about. Therefore teens who are in families that have divorce often have no one to talk to and go through their suffering alone. Maggie's pain is understandable. No one wants to see their family split up. You don't want to see the two people who are supposed to promote family unity just give up and walk out on you. It makes sense that Maggie is bitter and cynical towards her parents. I just didn't like though how she didn't have all the facts and kept lashing out at her mother and blaming her for the split. She didn't give her a chance to explain and kept siding with her dad. So when the truth finally comes out, it hurts Maggie more than anything. I'm glad the ending of the novel doesn't end happily. Many Christian novels have everyone making up with the family getting back together and hugs all around. Unfortunately that is not always realistic. Maggie's faith keeps her strong throughout this whole ordeal. There is a subplot which involves teen drinking and the ill effects of it. With both parents involved with their own affairs, there's no one for Maggie to turn to so she gives into peer pressure and then pays for the consequences. This is an excellent book for teens who have experienced divorce. Highly recommended teen reading.
