Kayla, a 12-year-old girl who recently lost her father in a school shooting, is facing many changes. Raised in a Christian home, she has learned to take her religion for granted. Now, she is starting seventh grade in a new town, a new school, with no friends, and no father. Her problem escalates when she makes friends with two girls who seem to be archenemies. For the first time, being a Christian seems to interfere with being popular, and she is faced with one of the biggest decisions of her life: Does being a Christian mean more than just believing in God... and if so, does she really want to be one?

The narration by Chelsea Makela coupled with the writing was so realistic that it was like listening in on a conversation.
Kayla was my favorite because she had so many challenges and choices to consider and make. The choices were real.
Listening to Kayla was so realistic, it was like having a conversation.
Her choices of how to earn forgiveness from her teacher was my favorite. Believe it or not, I had to make a similar choice at the same age. I thought that I was the only one.
I recommend this book and other books narrated by Chelsea Makela because it is like talking to teen friends.
