|Summary:||Camille, Alexis and Jasmine all agree on one thing: They do NOT want to be a part of this "Good Girlz" group! Angel does, but she's desperate. However, the adults in their life have no intention whatsoever of giving them a choice in the matter. For various reasons, each is forced into participating. And the lack of desire to be there is about the only thing they can agree on! When problems occur though, it will take all of them to make it through.|
|Extra Notes:||This book deals with some pretty big issues - Camille is dating a convicted criminal, Alexis' parents are on the verge of a divorce, Angel is pregnant, and Jasmine is ready to beat up anyone who even looks at her funny. Faith and friendship can go a long ways towards life change and this story shows a picture of that. It also deals heavily with the issues of parents. I would recommend also reading the nonfiction book:|
Stupid Parents: Why They Just Don't Understand and How You Can Help along with this book as it sheds some interesting light on the parent issues dealt with in this book.
This is the first in a series where each book focuses on one of the ten commandments.
