Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Sixteen-year-old Haley's life is about to change. With divorced parents, she's allowed to choose who to live with. Tired of Mom’s restrictions (like no dating), she picks laid-back Dad, although that means she'll have to go to a new school. But even that situation starts to look up when hottie Harris Stephens flirts with her. And when he asks her out, Haley ecstatically accepts.

Chalking up a mysterious warning about Harris to jealousy, Haley continues seeing him. But infatuation turns to devastation when Harris does something totally unexpected. Humiliation and peer pressure keep Haley from disclosing what happened, and with no one to talk to, her torturous secret is overwhelming.

Series Copy:

Every teenage girl has a secret. And every teenage girl loves hearing someone else’s secret. But some secrets are big enough to detour, derail, or even destroy a young person’s life. Each of Melody Carlson’s Secrets novels will propel readers into a world where promises are broken, life is not fair, and challenges can make or break them, while ultimately helping readers discover that solid faith, loyal friends, and a persistent spirit will see them through.

Synopsis:

Examine what it means to be like Christ, and be challenged to follow Him wholeheartedly and be transformed in the process.

Synopsis:

How can a teen deal with a wolf in sheep's clothing?

Synopsis:

“A DISCIPLE…WILL BE LIKE HIS TEACHER.” (Luke 6:40) What does it mean to be a follower of Jesus? The ultimate goal of discipleship is to be like the Teacher-to be like Jesus Himself. Every Christian wants to understand what that means. But even if we understand it, is it possible? Michael Wilkins asserts that it’s not only possible, it’s a life that all Christians are called to-not just a select few. So why do we so seldom experience it? As Wilkins points out, even the first followers of Jesus had a hard time grasping what it meant to be His disciples. Like them, our difficulty often lies in not clearly understanding who Jesus is, not recognizing the resources available to us as God’s children, or not believing who we are to be as Christ’s followers. But like the early disciples, our lives can radically change. If we want to follow Jesus, we can become like Him. “Jesus takes us exactly as He finds us,” writes Wilkins, “and transforms us into His likeness.” So come, learn what it means to walk with Jesus and reflect His image to the real world.
