As Beka's junior year winds to a close, Josh and Mark are both vying for her affections. Since Josh is going to college in Seattle in the fall it seems clear that Mark, a fellow junior, is her best chance for finally having a boyfriend. But with her dad's strict rules about spending time with guys, Beka's left frustrated and wondering if she'll ever have a boyfriend.
But Beka has got other problems too. Her older brother will be heading off to college soon, and she's not sure she'll survive without him next year. Her dad is spending a lot of time with a woman Beka can't stand. And worst of all, Gretchen is being nice! Now that's confusing! Surely she hasn't forgotten it was Beka who told the police about her involvement with the fire at the Snack Shop before spring break, Beka knows it's only a matter of time before she tries to get revenge.
If only Beka could open the Bible and have it spell out who she should date and what she should do about Gretchen, life would be so much easier! But, then again, maybe God does have something to say about the confusion of real life.
