Dear Lord,

I need Your help and sooner would be better than later. Wouldn't you know it, just as soon as I decide to attempt the 5-Day Bible Study Challenge, my parents start heaping on loads of pressure to get me into Julliard. My friend Amy isn't any better, urging me to ask Luke Ryan to homecoming. As if the cute, transfer jock would actually go out with me. I mean, we're kinda friends, and I've enjoyed our Geometry study sessions, but in case Amy hasn't noticed, I'm the invisible one at Aubrey Christian Academy, and I like it that way. On top of that, I have a feeling Luke's concealing something behind those chocolate-brown eyes of his. I know I can be self-centered and a bit melodramatic, but I really do want to seek Your will for my life. Then maybe I'll even figure out which direction points up.

Sincerely,

Andrea Jamison

High School Junior Change-o-phobic & complete neurotic

Re: Andrea and the 5-Day Challenge

I remember those days well. Growing up in a strict
household where I was never encouraged to be anything that I
can recall, other than doing well on my studies, and not
being taught about boys in general, and not being allowed to
date until a certain age my Mom had chosen, I really had no
self-esteem. I let a boy pretty much choose me, because the
ones that I liked sort of ran the other way!! In time, I
learned through "hard knocks," but also kept my dignity
intact, and married the man that I truly loved, but I
wouldn't want to go through that stage again!! Your book
would bring back a flood of memories, not all pleasant ones,
but I'm willing to give it a shot. Congratulations on your
book, which I'm sure is going to do well!!

I always feel socially awkward and the more nervous i become
the less of a filter i have. Then i embarrass myself. It is a
vicious cycle.

This is fabulous. So common and familiar as I grew up and felt
shy and withdrawn from everyone. Thanks.
(

Sounds like a great book-I'm looking forward to reading it
(

I can totally relate to her insecure side. I am socially
awkward for sure! :)

Most teens experience insecurity. Some are just better at pretending.

I'm sure all of us can relate to Andrea ,her friend , or her parents in one way or another . This book sounds like it will be an excellent read for all ' young adults ' and will bring back so many memories for us 'young adults ' at heart .Thanks for this giveaway .

The teen girls I mentor will be very interested in this book.

I can definitely relate I think we all go through this at
some point in our life I hope she does overcome it!

I was always the one chosen last for any teams and always
was on the fringes. My high school years are not a favorite
time of my like as I was very shy and insecure. But I grew
out of that and had a wonderful time at university. I can
still identify with anyone that feels insecsure, out of
place, shy as I've never forgotten how that feels.
(
Glenda Hefty 12:59pm March 22, 2015)

I can definitely relate to the insecurity. I think everyone can on some level.
(
Pam Howell 7:21am March 22, 2015)

I can definitely relate to the insecurity. You are a new author to me, sure would like to win one of your books. I am on a budget and just by books of authors I have read. Yours sounds good.
(

Your book sounds like a great read
(

All the time!

warm weather ... yeah!
how much time you got ... that's a loaded question ...
blurb got my attention
(

I can relate to Andrea. I have to pretend to be someone I'm not just to fit in with my classmate. I wasn't athletic or popular. I have parents who are old-fashioned and strict so I pretend to be the smart girl just to be special.

I was the awkward, shy girl who read a lot and was always doing art.
(
Seanna Yeager 8:47am March 23, 2015)

Every teen girl wants to fit in. Not only did I go through
that, I raised one girl, and now have 5 granddaughters. So
we all have our times.
(
Mary Hay 8:53am March 23, 2015)

I am always socially awkward, never more so than as a teenager. I still find myself looking at my shoes & wishing I could sink into the wall behind me.
(
Kristine Murphy 8:58am March 23, 2015)

I hate being the centre of attention and dislike any but family parties. So I can well and truly relate.
(
Lesley Walsh 11:18am March 23, 2015)

I was really awkward and didn't fit in. Honestly I still don't
really I just can accept it better now and have a few select
friends who love me for my quirkiness.
(
Denise Austin 3:42pm March 23, 2015)

GREAT CONTEST, I WOULD LOVE TO WIN! GOOD LUCK TO EVERYONE!
