I really like this title and I like the fact that it's "clean". It skillfully shows the maturing process that occurs as you start to question beliefs you've held all your life. My 12-year old read this one and liked it as well.

Books in which the characters question faith intrigue me. I can see this one angering some people, but I liked how the the author showed the different avenues Christianity can take and that perhaps there are no absolutes. High on my list.

One of my top picks. I remember just thinking how "good" it was. Very well-written, great characters, realistic characters & storyline. I loved how you didn't know from the beginning all of the exact circumstances that led to her exile from her church - how you found out once you were into the story. I can't wait to read more books from the author.

I enjoyed this title. The main character was trying so hard to remain true to her faith as she was being pushed and pulled by her parents, her church and the situation at school. An excellent, thoughtful book.
