Dear Lord,I need Your help and sooner would be better than later. Wouldn't you know it, just as soon as I decide to attempt the 5-Day Bible Study Challenge, my parents start heaping on loads of pressure to get me into Julliard. My friend Amy isn't any better, urging me to ask Luke Ryan to homecoming. As if the cute, transfer jock would actually go out with me. I mean, we're kinda friends, and I've enjoyed our Geometry study sessions, but in case Amy hasn't noticed, I'm the invisible one at Aubrey Christian Academy, and I like it that way. On top of that, I have a feeling Luke's concealing something behind those chocolate-brown eyes of his. I know I can be self-centered and a bit melodramatic, but I really do want to seek Your will for my life. Then maybe I'll even figure out which direction points up.Sincerely,Andrea JamisonHigh School JuniorChange-o-phobic & complete neurotic

Anne Baxter CampbellWillows, CAAge: Over 65Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Engaging YA Novel!June 10, 2015Anne Baxter CampbellWillows, CAAge: Over 65Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This is a delightful YA novel, the first I have read by Cindy K Green, and I am definitely impressed! Now I realize I'm somewhat past my teen years, but if I were a teen I would love this book. Oh, might as well admit it--I'm not that young but I still loved it.
Andrea Jamison is the typical awkward-feeling teen girl. Sixteen going fast on seventeen, she's pretty sure she's the ugliest girl in school, not to mention a dweeb of the most awfully boring life imaginable. She's not in the popular set--well, some of her friends are, but still. One of the four A's (Andrea, Amy, Angie, and Alisha) since the fourth grade, she was the most backward.
Yet Amy thought she, Andrea the Dork, should ask the most popular guy in the school, Luke Ryan, to Homecoming. Sure. Like if she ever dared to do that he wouldn't turn her down in a split second. Yes, they were friends, but no way would Luke think of her that way.
Besides, her parents didn't want her to date until she was eighteen. They wanted her to focus on the piano. The big recital is Saturday, the same day as Homecoming. Her parents believe she has a huge chance to go to one of the big musical schools, like Julliard, and representatives of a high school with a musical focus (there was that word again) would be there.
So you see, no way could she go with Luke. Not even if he asked her three times. Really.
Marianne EvansSuburban Detroit, MIAge: 45-54Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Great YA ReleaseMarch 26, 2015Marianne EvansSuburban Detroit, MIAge: 45-54Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I think what I enjoyed most about Andrea and the 5-Day Challenge is that she reminds me of me when I was a teenquirky but hopeful. Andreas life is a roller coaster, overwhelming at timesbut she paves her way through challenges and doubts by leaning on her friends, her faith and a wonderful young man who sweeps into her life. With humor and heart, Cindy K Green puts right in the middle of Andreas world, which is a treat. I love finding great YA books like this one that are geared toward Christians. Cant wait for what comes next at Aubrey Christian Academy.

bunnymillerAge: 35-44Gender: female4 Stars Out Of 5A great, quick summer read...March 4, 2015bunnymillerAge: 35-44Gender: femaleQuality: 4Value: 4Meets Expectations: 4This was a fun little read. I blasted through it in a few hours and it held my attention all the way through. I liked the author's style of writing and related to the main character's neuroses. I really enjoyed Andrea's inner dialogue.
I would recommend this book more for the teenage readers as it was pretty predictable for someone like me with a little more distance between my current age and the world of highschool, but that said, within the first few pages I was immediately swept right back to that time in my life and I did enjoy the ride.
This would make a great summer vacation read. It trucks along pretty fluidly.
I am curious to read more from Cindy Green.
