    Lindsay would really like a boyfriend, but she is sick of boys who only want one thing. Then Lindsay meets Noah, a hockey player, who is handsome and kind and really seems to like her. But when she's around Noah, she can hardly think, he's so cute. He's unlike any other boy she's ever known. And he's a Christian too. While Lindsay had always planned to wait until she was married to have sex, she and Noah are so attracted to each other, that things are so much more complicated than she ever thought they'd be.

    I enjoyed this book. It was very realistic. Many girls don't have trouble staying away from boys who are so obviously interested in sex and sex alone. It's the boys who are more patient and persistent, who invest time in a girl that are the ones who are the most tempting. And that's where Lindsay got lost. Girls tend to think that Christian boys will be safe, but that's not always the case. I wish that Lindsay's mom would have thought to teach her daughter some boundaries for dating. It might have made things a little less confusing for her. And I would have liked a little more of an ending. We were sort of left hanging as to what Noah said. Still, this book was well written, entertaining, and gives girls lots to think about.

    I know the author is trying to communicate the struggle of teens to stay pure, but this book was way too much for me to pass along to a teenager to read. The book spends most of the time positively portraying the main characters being "in love" and how right everything feels. Even after they have sex, it focuses little on remorse or consequences, but on how close the characters have become and how good it really feels, so after all "God, could it really be so wrong?" In all fairness, it briefly address the possibility of pregnancy and STDs, and the conclusion does come back toward choosing purity, but after a young person reads about how good and how right sex feels, I'm not sure if the message about the rightness of being pure makes it through. This is one I will not be passing on to others or recommending.

    Laura Smith did not beat around the bush in this novel! She spoke so much truth from a teen's perspective during that situation! A must read for every teen! Was truly blessed by this novel in that the author wrote from the heart!

    The book talks about primarily what teenagers face - the need to belong, problems with the family, school and friends. The book reinforces the importance of having good parents and even church family for support system.

    Hot is the story of Lindsey Kraus, a high school sophomore who struggles like so many other girls her age, with self-esteem issues. Insecure about everything from her home life to her physical appearance, Lindsey faces the temptation of going too far when she falls in love for the very first time. Although Lindsey has a good heart and loves God, she also loves Noah and finds herself on the fence about her convictions and personal beliefs. Planning to wait until shes married to have sex may prove to be too lofty of a goal, as Lindsey and Noah grow more attracted to each other. Overall, Hot shares an important message and I think that this book could be a good tool for parents to use as a means of opening up dialogue with their teens about this sensitive topic - however parental discretion should be used first. I would suggest that any parent who is thinking of having their teen read this, read it first themselves to make sure the content is appropriate for their own personal tastes.

Author/Artist Review

    Tell us a little about yourself.  i believe in God. I believe in true love. I believe in fairies. I believe if I bang hard enough on the back of my wardrobe I'll get to Narnia someday. I believe eating chocolate is good for you. I believe part of my soul lives in France, part of it lives at the beach and part of it lives here in Oxford, Ohio, because when I am in those places I feel at home, as if I've always belonged. I believe heaven will be very much the same. I believe created me to be the mother of my four children and to write the stories He wanted me to tell. Skinny, Hot and Angry are three of these stories.

    What do you hope folks will gain from this project?  I hope everyone who reads this book will know that God's amazing grace is abundant and available to everyone. I also hope it will illustrate to teens how relevant the Bible is to their lives today.

    Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists?  My favorite author of all time is C.S. Lewis. He is wise beyond words and first took my imagination to magical places and beyond.

    Anything else you'd like readers / listeners to know:  If you like Hot, please check out the other books in this series -- Skinny and Angry. Follow me on Facebook and Twitter to learn more about my books and appearances.
