When Kim Peterson gets a speeding ticket, her dad offers her away to retain her driving privileges. If she'll write the anonymous teen advice column for his newspaper, she can still get a car. So Kim becomes "Jamie" of "Just Ask Jamie." No big deal, she thinks.
She answers letters about stuff that's everyday and stuff that's not: parents, piercing, dating, drugs, depression, and people who are just users. Nothing Kim can't handle.
But when a classmate is killed, the letters turn to questions about life, death, and what it all means. And Kim starts to wonder if she really does have all the answers--and if not, where to find them: The Christian faith of her adoptive family? The Buddhism of her Korean heritage? Who can she turn to--to just ask?

Whats a girl to do when caught between a rock and a hard place? The "hard place" is losing the use of her beloved car, and the "rock" is her immovable dad. In order to regain driving privileges, Kim Petersons dad talks her into writing an advice column for teens in his newspaper. Kim reluctantly agrees and writes under a pen name. But as she reads letters from peers and friends, she becomes keenly aware of two things: (1) Some kids have it way worse than her, and (2) she does not have all the answers! Who can she turn to?

Ive been saving for my own car, but my parents decided that I can only get a car if I keep a clean driving record. That means absolutely NO ticketsperiodnada. And the policeman said hed clocked me going 72 in a 55 mile zone. Oops.

Danni5 Stars Out Of 5Five-StarJuly 2, 2015DanniQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I loved this book. I was so into it that I couldn't put it down. I loved that the characters talked about God openly and eventually helped Kim to be a Christian too. I have also read all the other Kim books and hope that Melody Carlson comes out with more in the future!
Lauren5 Stars Out Of 5April 12, 2007LaurenI absolutely loved this book. I picked it up at my local library not knowing that it was a Christian book. When I started reading it, I thought, oh great...just what I need, a BOOK preaching at me (I should mention that I have been an atheist for a while now).But then, as I read it, I noticed that Kim was going through a lot of the same things as me. She wasn't sure about God, and hadn't found her way. I could totally relate to everything she was going through.Call me crazy, but I feel as if God led me to this book because He knew I needed help finding my way back to Him. He knew I was lost. I now feel much closer to God much happier, all because of this book. Melody Carlson is an amazing author, and I thank her whole heartedly for writing this book.
