Not Just for Teenagers!

Posted August 6, 2010, 4:03 PM EST: So I read this book in one sitting. It took me about 2 hours. Perhaps I couldn’t put it down because it made me feel 15 again. Not a bad feeling. I’m passing this book on to some of my younger cousins, nieces, and nephews. It’s definitely a good read for any kid about to enter high school, or one who is in high school. I enjoyed it, and I’ve been out of high school for quite a while… not to age myself. Anyway, two thumbs up!

Looking Forward to Montgomery Lake High #2

Posted August 6, 2010, 1:39 AM EST: This story brought me right back to high school – the good and the bad. Experiencing this story from so many different characters perspectives made it play like a movie in my mind. It was difficult at first to keep all the characters straight, but as the story continued and the plot further developed, I found myself relating to the characters personally. I felt like I was with Courtney and Bryan beneath the staircase! I could feel Chris’s disappointment when he could not come to rescue Courtney at Jason’s. I felt Alyssa’s humiliation and pain as her friends did not stick up for her. I also felt the “emotional bomb” (as Courtney said) that Chris dropped on her. I did not expect the twist ending. Looking back I can see some hints, but hindsight is always 20/20. I recommend this book to any adult kid (like myself) who is young at heart, and to any kid that wants to read about what high school is really like. Parents – this book sends a positive message to kids about faith, integrity, and the importance of abstaining from drugs and alcohol.

Posted December 8, 2010, 1:19 PM EST: This book is helpful to any parents who want to know what their children are facing in high school. I recommend it to anyone who’d like to get in the head of a fourteen year old boy or girl, to see where they are coming from.
