I just downloaded the free ebook off of Amazon and plan on checking it out again. Actually it is a 3 star and a half rating. Despite being a teen book, it is a little dramatic. The story happens is high school, where all classmates from a sick boy with leuchemia, Kurt, organized a carnival to raise money to help him. In one of the group, the main characters reunited to sell burguers and hot dogs: Melanie, the cheerleader; Jesse, the football player; Nicole, who is in love with Jesse; Miguel del Rios, one of the cool boys; Leah, an intelligent girl; Jenna and Peter, best Actually it is a 3 star and a half rating.
In one of the group, the main characters reunited to sell burguers and hot dogs: Melanie, the cheerleader; Jesse, the football player; Nicole, who is in love with Jesse; Miguel del Rios, one of the cool boys; Leah, an intelligent girl; Jenna and Peter, best friends, and Ben, the nerd and clumsy boy. Except her story, everything was interesting.
Oh, and except something that happens that I think was totally unfair. I see the point, why it did had to happen, but even so, it was not fair at all. Apr 03, Lily rated it liked it. Actually 3. I'm no longer anything resembling a young adult or religious, for that matter but this is still a sweet little book. It isn't quite as Sweet Valley-esque as it looks, but it does remind me fondly of the days when teen fiction didn't have to revolve around vampires, werewolves or other overused supernatural tropes. It tackles some important issues I dealt with in my teens, and which teenagers Actually 3.
It tackles some important issues I dealt with in my teens, and which teenagers today are certainly still wrestling with. As other reviewers noted, the seques are a little choppy in places but the standard of writing is by far better than anything by the Cassandra Clares and Stephenie Meyers of this world, and the story doesn't require constant suspension of disbelief. I'd happily recommend it to any YA readers looking for something more grounded in reality.

Overall, a nice little trip down memory lane; I'll probably re-read the rest of them while I'm at it. Sep 11, Rachel rated it did not like it Shelves: modern-christian-romance.
This was a difficult book to finish. There were too many characters, and their places in the plot were not clear enough to help me keep them straight.

Additionally, the shallow nature of the characters I understand, that's one of the lessons the author has them learning was simply overwhelming. Finally, the lesson learned was also too simplistic, and I simply didn't enjoy the storyline or the characters. This is unfortunate, since my own daughter battled Leukemia in high school. I really This was a difficult book to finish. I really thought I would be able to personalize more of the story than I did.
There are much better stories out there, and much better authors. Sep 02, Elaine rated it really liked it Shelves: kindle , free-kindle-finds , young-adult , nook-ebooks. This novel is more true to life than most books I've read. In Get a Life people don't always get what they want and sometimes what they want isn't what's best.
I'm willing to bet Peter likes Jenna as more than friends while Jenna likes Miguel. Leah is intrigued by him - by Miguel. Nicole has had a crush on Jesse for the last two years.

Jesse likes Melanie but she isn't impressed by him.

These teens seem to have different reasons for volunteering in the fund-raiser to help a fellow student undergoing cancer treatment.

Just end with a questionable cliff hanger. I don't think it needed to do that. For youth reading this if they liked it well enough they would pick it up. It is a typical teenage story, full of angst, some that didn't need to be there. I'm not sure what teenagers would think, for me I'm not sure I would have loved it. Aug 12, Polly rated it really liked it. Not a bed book I read this to see if I liked it for my daughter, soon to be My only issue with it is the boy and girl, high school drama. Is there drama in high school? Do I think my daughter would like this book?
Probably, but I would prefer she read books that were more fantasy than reality. Just a personal preference. I don't want my daughter trying live a life of a teenager in a book, although, I'm certain she already does. Jul 26, Treasure rated it it was amazing. It was sooooooooooooooooooooo easy to relate to all these characters even though I am part of the God squad.
This book helps me see how tough it is to trust in something or someone you've never seen or had a normal conversation with. But if you decide to truly trust God no matter what like Job you will see the results and never regret it. This is a cute book introducing the characters of a series. More cabin availability.
