Jo's summer vacation is off to a good start when she meets Kevin, an amazingly attractive guy, and Sam, her soon-to-be best friend, on the same day. Now she only needs a job, future plans, and a few goals for her life. No big deal, right?
As if that's not enough, Jo would also like to know why no one talks about the horrible accident she witnessed last summer. But as much as she wants to know the truth, someone else wants to keep it a secret. Can she handle creepy stalkers, death threats, and her crazy love-life without losing control?
For Jo, unraveling the mystery and piecing her life together will mean discovering if God really listens--and if he cares enough to answer.

Marion disselkoen5 Stars Out Of 5April 29, 2009Marion disselkoenThe novel If Only You Knew is a witty, entertaining book, and a highly satisfying read. It was fun to read how the author unfolded the main characters (Jos) triumphs and tragedies during her summer when she lives with her cousin Kat. The supporting characters of Kevin and Sam posse some interesting interactions throughout the book, and there are a few unexpected twists and situations that happen with them in the story line. What I loved about the novel is the various dimensions the characters have. Jo is originally positioned as someone who is searching for some answers and directions in her life. During the course of the novel, she discovers more about herself, what defines her and what is truly important to her. In addition, there were several situations and circumstances that I found undeniably hillarious and found myself laughing out loud, or smiling from the fun-ness of the situation. Overall, If Only You Knew is a very enjoyable read, one that I enjoyed so much, I had a hard time putting the book down before finishing it.
