New Club, New Crush . New Mom?
Just as Katy is feeling settled in her new school, everything falls apart at home. Her father, believing she needs a mother, starts courting a woman Katy refuses to accept. Tensions rise as Katy schemes to send the woman packing. Meanwhile, the pressure builds at school as Katy joins the debate team, encounters a teammate's scorn, and faces her growing feelings for a boy her father will never accept. Can Katy prove she doesn't need a mother's guidance even as she discovers more of what the world offers?
Bestselling, award-winning author Kim Vogel Sawyer wears many hats besides 'writer.' As a wife, mother, grandmother, and active participant in her church, her life is happily full. But Kim's passion lies in writing stories of hope that encourage her readers to place their lives in God's capable hands. An active speaking ministry assists her with her desire. Kim and her husband make their home on the beautiful plains of Kansas, the setting for many of Kim's novels.
Katys Debate by Kim Vogel Sawyer has change as its theme. Katy Lambright is conflicted between what is right and wrong in her extremely spiritual Mennonite community. She does not want to force change upon her family and friends, but she also wants them to be happy, and she wonders if this is possible within the confines of their traditions. She ends up feeling guilty because she is lying to them about her emotions and about what she really wants to do with her life.
Katy does a lot of thinking and soul searching as she tries to choose which path is right and which is wrong. Her relationships with her father and her best friend, Annika, are very strong until conflicts with incoming relationships cause Katy to become very jealous. An intense scene with Annika happens in Katys kitchen when Katy tells her how she feels about Annikas new boy interest, which causes their friendship to be put on hold.
Katys father, a widower, wants to remarry. His new love is actually a woman his mother has chosen for him from a different town. Katy feels like all the attention she once received is now being taken from her. Shes lost the devotion of her father and her best friend.
Katy shows herself to be a person who wants to please everyone, even if that means she has to bottle everything up. She vents through her writing and school activities, such as her involvement on the debate team and forensics team. She hates doing anything that would disappoint God or her father and friends, and is a perfectionist who worries about things too much. This tends to put her in even bigger predicaments.
The book kept me reading for hours and kept my mind running. The story helps readers perceive how people of different belief systems live their lives in distinctive ways, and how our worldviews affect our actions. Anyone of any age would enjoy this book, and especially people of faith. Caroline Taylor, www.ChristianBookPreviews.com
