Publisher's Description

Nikki Grimes, a bestselling author known for titles such as Dark Sons, Barak Obama: Son of Promise, Child of Hope, and Voices of Christmas has written a gripping book from the perspective of a girl named Mister (Mary Rudine) who finds herself momentarily distracted from her faith commitment to purity by a handsome boy named Trey. After one night of weakness, Mister finds her entire life has changed, even if she can’t yet accept all the changes occurring within her are real. When the emotional scars of losing her innocence are more lasting than she imagined, Mister turns to a book of her mother’s, which contains poems from Mary’s perspective. As both Mister and Mary’s voices play out in the story, a full and meaningful portrait of Christian faith, trust, and forgiveness emerges, along with the truth that God can use even the most unplanned events in our lives for his greater glory.

    I have been unable to access on my Nook. Can't figure out how to transfer from book shelf to actual Nook. Love e-books.

    The part that I did read was good, but I had one small problem. When I try to go back and finish reading the book I couldn't get back to it, I couldn't fine it. I,m not sure if I had to read the whole book at once. With my schedule, I can't read a whole book at once.

    I was very disappointed it just couldn't keep my interested. It was like there was a point to the book but it was just something that i would rather not read. Very poorly written.
