Publisher's Description

The girlfriends from ‘Nama Beach High learn the liberating secret of disciplineIn this second book of the ‘Nama Beach High series, Laura Duffy and her friends from the “conflicted” girls club discover a “secret” text hidden within John 16. Laura has a chance to experience the truth of this secret when she gets her driver’s license, starts a new job at the local Gap store, then observes kids from her school in the act of shoplifting, and even suffers the theft of her car. Worst of all, her friend Joy Beth, who seems to possess everything in life, develops diabetes. Together the girls realize that possessing things sometimes leads to being possessed by them. They learn that discipline is the ability to deny and to choose not to exploit. Discipline is a way that God’s power can bless them. They find out that surrendering all of life’s non-essentials and identifying what remains as God’s sacred gifts is The Key.

    Typical Laura: "I don't have time for a job!" I wailed to Celeste the next morning...."I've got rehearsals every afternoon. I know I've only got a chorus role, but I still have to be there....And I've got ten tons of homework now that I'm finally in MAPPS classes. What am I supposed to do - give up sleeping?"

    When parking her car Laura accidentally hit a truck. No big deal, right? Wrong. Her dad tells her she not only has to pay for the damage, but that she needs to get a job too! Like she has time! But even after squeezing a job into her schedule, problems don't go away. No; instead, they add up quickly and leave her gasping for breath. What happened to "surrender to God" that made everything OK? Why is it not working anymore?

    "False Friends and True Strangers" explores the life of a hecticly overscheduled teenager. Laura yearns for the times she had felt at peace with God, but they seem so long ago. Slowly yet surely the fog lifts and she feels Him, hears Him, knows where He wants her to go.

    This is the second book in the 'Nama Beach High series. The first is "New Girl in Town;" the third and fourth are "Fault Lines" and "Totally Unfair." Personally, I think Nancy Rue has written books that were a lot better. The beginning was slow, I believe, with most of the action in the last 15-20% of the book. Also, Laura has friends and a mentor who help her throughout the whole story -the stakes could have have been higher if she was sometimes completely ALONE. However, Nancy Rue was and remains one of my three favorite authors.
