A teenager who is coming of age learns that community service can generate more than just an opportunity to graduate but an opportunity to learn what real life is. She uses flirtation to cover her insecurities until she runs across a boy who does not succumb to her flirts but does do something even better. The narrator made the story come to life and kept me listening. I am not a fan of YA novels but this one was fine. I got this book via audiobook boom.
Worth the Time
: Laura Jackson
A christian coming of age book that shows teenage angst, family dysfunction and new romance.
The narration was well done. The characters were well portrayed. Giselle Lumas read this well.

Quiet man who enjoy Audible Audio-books as a way to escape from the world each day. They provide an excellent soundtrack for my daily walks.
I really really enjoyed this story and feel just horrible about not being able to give 5 stars in all the overall and performance categories. The story is very good and does reflect on issues faced by high school kids today. I found the fact that the main character struggled with her faith interesting and enjoyable. The pressures she faces with her mother and her mothers secrets is really thought provoking and fun. This is great story and I really recommend it and plan on going back and hearing the first in the series based on how much I have enjoyed this audiobook.
The narrator Ms. Lumas does a good good with the dialogue and giving each character life of their own but the performance just has a few technical issues. I noted 6 different places where the story or dialogue looped for 5 or 10 seconds. It is not major but pulls you out of the story. The recording quality has a hollow tone with a mild echo that you can get used to but is is more pronounced in places of the story.
