Publisher's Description

The third book in an exciting and inspiring new series from national bestselling author ReShonda Tate Billingsley

Only one girl will be chosen....

In the year since Camille, Alexis, Jasmine, and Angel joined Rachel Jackson's church youth group, the four best friends have bonded over boys, pitched in on community projects, and shared their deepest secrets. There's nothing they don't know about each other -- or is there? When a special guest arrives at Rachel's group and announces auditions for a television talk show, the girls will come to know a side of each other they never knew existed. And they may not like what they see.

Will the four friends become enemies?

The race to find the perfect host for KRCP's Teen Talks is heating up -- the competition is fierce, and so are the lies the girlfriends tell about each other in order to win the coveted spot. But more painful than any lies they can concoct is the cold, hard truth: none of them will reach their ultimate dreams if cutting each other down is how they choose to get ahead. Is winning a place in the spotlight worth losing their friendship?

Includes a reader's group guide!

    Review : With Friends Like These - Book #3 Good Girlz Series - ReShonda Tate Billingsley- April 2007

    In With Friends like these we are introduced to a group of 4 girls - Camille, Alexis, Angel and Jasmine . They are part of a reformed behaviour christian group called "Good Girlz" . All four of them have been in trouble one time or another with the law and just have each other for support. However , this is about to change as the girls have a chance to audition for the chance to be a hostess of a new talkback Teen Show .

    It starts out as a fun activity , that soon turns sour cherries as we see each girl competing for her chance at stardom and when you add in the factor that they each have a shady past , the things that they can do become ten times worst. If this competition isn't enough to tear them apart, then what's happening in all of their lives are and what makes it worst is they soon won't have anybody to turn too. From Camille , who has met a lovely white guy only to have her and his parents worrying about the racial aspect of their relationship - he's white and comes from a wealthy family and she's black and poor and to top it off her ex-boyfriend Kevin has been released from Jail and is after Camille. Alexis has fallen head over heels , in love with Jasmine's brother only to have him cheat on her with his ex-girlfriend and just to add salt to her wound , her parents are getting a divorce. Jasmine is failing her classes and if she can't keep up her grades , its bye-bye Good Girlz , so in order to stay she had better get cracking and bring those test scores up. Last but not least, Angel -the only one with a baby in the group , Angel works hard to support it but can she stay on the straight and narrow or will she succumb to temptation and revert to her old habits ?.

    With Friends like These , can you go wrong or can they keep you straight ?

    A good urban christian fiction which shows that not all Christians have had an easy life and that we all make mistakes.
