Product Description

When her family moves to London, 15-year-old Savvy Smith has to make her way in a new school and a new country. She just knows the school newspaper is the right place for her, but she doesn't have the required experience, and the cute editor-in-chief is not looking to train anyone. She has to come up with a way to prove herself and nab the one available position on the newspaper staff at Wexburg Academy.

London Confidential is a new series where British fashion, friendships, and guys collide, and where an all-American girl learns to love life and live out her faith.

    Finally! A normal Christian book for teens!

    I am very pleased with Sandra Byrd. She has always written good, wholesome books. I read her "Secret Sisters" series when I was younger and was soooo happy to find that she wrote a book for fifteen-year-olds. So many of the 'teenage Christian fiction' (as it is labled) deals with things that NO Christian teenager should even know about. I find it very refreshing that Mrs. Byrd writes about normal issues.

    Now as to the writing and the subject matter, I think that ,as always, Mrs. Byrd has written the story well. Her characters are very lifelike. Savvy's story is interesting, funny and has problems that normal Christian kids face. Great story! My only complaint is that I wish it had been longer! I didn't want it to end!

    I am always wary when reviewing Christian teenage fiction--you just never know what you might find. I've seen teenage fiction where the main characters were rebellious and boy crazy and that's not something I want to encourage in my daughters. It's hard enough being a teenager without being encouraged to chase boys and argue with your parents in Christian books.

    But the main character of this book, Savvy (Savannah) is not only cool--she's a good Christian kid whose not too perfect but does her best, seeks God's wisdom, and finds how He answers her prayers for that very thing. She's an aspiring journalist seeking a role as her new English school's advice column writer. She reads the bible and prayers that God will help her give good, sound advice to her classmates. It's rewarding to see this great example of a teenager who's seeking God, staying true to him, and super cool.

    The plot moved quickly, the characters were likeable, and the writing was flawless. I gave the book only 4 stars because the recommended audience is 9-12 year olds. Savvy deals with life as a 15 year old, high school girl. I don't feel that 9-12 year olds should be hanging out with high schoolers in real life, so naturally don't think they should be seeking them out in books, either. I do highly recommend this book and the rest of the series to older girls, but no younger than 14.
