A Katie Parker Production, Act 1: In Between
This is a very good true to life story
I really enjoyed this book it made me laugh then sad, the author has really accomplish to express herself through the characters. some times very witty sayings that i enjoyed, then other times very close to the bone truth of every day life especially a teen ager in a system without family love. Also peer presure was address and overcome with the truth of the word and real family that cares. Looking forward to read the next book.

ebook In Between = Excellent
This was a really good read. My 10yo daughter and I read it aloud together, and it gave us insight into how teens think, how it feels to have a broken family, and how God uses things in life to grow us AND uses us in the lives of others. There's a wide range of characters with interesting bio's. We want to read more.

A Great Story about a Growing Character
"In Between" is the first of three books that tell the story of 16-year-old Katie Parker. As readers meet Katie, she is on her way to her first foster home. Her single-parent mother has been incarcerated for dealing drugs, leaving Katie a ward of the state. Katie is nervous about foster care, fearing rumors sheÃ¢ÂÂs heard may be true. SheÃ¢ÂÂs certain this will be a temporary situation, so she determines to do all she can to hurry her transition back to the Sunny Haven Home for Girls along. When Katie learns that her foster father not only works at a church, but is the senior pastor, she decides extreme measures are in order.
I loved this story and plan to read the next two. (Book One is self-contained. Readers donÃ¢ÂÂt have to go on to read the next two booksÃ¢ÂÂI just want to.) KatieÃ¢ÂÂs character is sassy and sarcastic, but not in a hurtful way. She cares about people, but she fears them, so sheÃ¢ÂÂs protecting herself. Gradually Katie comes to see that her perceptions of others and of God need to change, just as she longs for what she assumes are othersÃ¢ÂÂ perceptions of her to change, too.
KatieÃ¢ÂÂs foster grandmother, Mad Maxine, is a great supporting characterÃ¢ÂÂalong with Frances and her family, Sam, Rocky, and more. I recommend this book for teenage girls and not-so-teenage girls alike. Thank you, NavPress, for sending a complimentary copy of this book for my honest review.
