About the Book:
Cleo Neilson's best friend is moving away and she wants to make Lola's last night in town special. For Cleo, that means going to the big Christian concert in the city, but her mom won't allow her to go. She says that area of the city is too dangerous for two unchaperoned teenage girls.
Convinced her mom is just being an overprotective "helicopter" mom, she sneaks out of the house. After all, her mom has to let her grow up sometime, right?
Cleo now faces the chilling consequences of her actions and a secret that it is eating her up inside. As Cleo fights through her grief and guilt, she learns about faith in God and forgiveness through him.
About the AuthorMelody Carlson has written more than a hundred books for all age groups, but she particularly enjoys writing for teens. Perhaps this is because her own teen years remain so vivid in her memory. After claiming to be an atheist at the ripe old age of twelve, she later surrendered her heart to Jesus and has been following him ever since. Her hope and prayer for all her readers is that each one would be touched by God in a special way through her stories. For more information, please visit Melody's website at www.melodycarlson.com.
MY THOUGHTS:What were you like when you were a teenager, did you ever sneak out of the house? Did you do things without thinking about the consequences? Secrets, do you have any....what do you do with them, keep them buried or do they in turn create even bigger secrets? This is a book that teaches you the consequences of doing things that you feel should be kept secret, things that should not be done in the first place. But as you read through this book you'll see how reaching out to God can help give you strength as well as learn forgiveness.
A very strong and good book for the young adult in your home.
