Skylar is back for her final semester of high school and things are awkward. She'd thought that committing her life to God would make life easier, but everything is so much harder. For one, is she really supposed to be nice to her ex-friends? Especially the one who is clearly trying to steal her boyfriend? And how can she make time for that boyfriend when she has to take care of her pregnant little sister? You'd think her parents would help, but they are in the middle of a major separation/continuing meltdown. How does a girl cope?Ack! I wanted to go straight to book three but it's not out yet! I hurt for Skylar as she went through all these troubles. This is a teen soap opera in book form. I love it, but it's so painful! I just want everything to be okay for poor Skylar, but her life is all mixed up. I liked seeing her do some hard things at the end of the book. She's a strong main character and very likable. I can't wait until book three is out so that I can see what happens to Skylar Hoyt. Fun read!
Skylar is going through a lot right now. Her parents cant seem to decide if they are together or not, her fifteen-year-old sister is pregnant (and not dealing with anything), her boyfriend seems just a little too friendly with his ex (not to mention that she is also Skylars ex-best-friend), and on top of all that she cant seem to decide what she wants to do with her life. Wouldnt you be stressed?This is a great book and I love that this series is an ongoing story. Each storyline blends into the next book so you know that the best is yet to come. It isnt a cliff-hanger ending, but it certainly shows that Skylar and the other characters still have some changes to make, and some growing to do. Im really looking forward to the next book in this series and seeing how everything ends up with Skylar!
"Why do I do what I don't want to do?" That is a question we all ask ourselves. Skylar Hoyt is no exception. She wants to be the young woman God calls her to be, but life just has a way of messing up her plans. Why is reinventing yourself such a difficult task? Stephanie Morrill captures all the ups and downs of life as a teenager--the boy troubles, the parent problems, the identity issues. She does a wonderful job of showing believable characters in difficult situations. While we root for Skylar to catch a break, we understand her trials and her reactions to them. Highly recommended for teenaged girls looking for a book to encourage their faith and challenge their hearts.
Wonderful! This book and this series are so realistic, so true to life. I couldn't stop reading it once I picked it up. One of the things I love about this book is that the characters aren't perfect. People make mistakes, sometimes with far-reaching consequences. Not only does Stephanie offer a good read, she offers life-lessons for teens in a way they can't help but respond to. This book is making the rounds of my church's youth group now.
