Melody Carlson has written more than 200 books for teens, women, and children.

"I think real-life experiences inspire the best friction," she says. Her wide variety of books seems to prove this theory.

AND NOW...THE FIRST CHAPTER: Just press the button!
This book sent a great message. It's a work of YA Christian fiction which centers around a group of girls who live in a boarding home. These girls are completely different from each other which makes the dynamics of the friendships very interesting.
This book has a message about looking to God but also about looking to yourself for the right choices. Carlson did an excellent job of including real life situations that teens can get in too. I applaud that becasue it was an honest look at real issues.
I think the book would be great for girls about to start high school or a youth group.
