Falling Up

New or Used: 2 copies from $9.95
Answer Girl Has a Zillion Questions. And Zero Answers
Kim Peterson, the Just Ask Jamie "answer girl" is about plum out of them. As if losing her mother to cancer wasn't enough, the hits just keep coming. Now living with Kim and her father, her aunt and cousin bicker nonstop. Dating Matthew is about as unpredictable as can be. Her dad's out of a job. Her prayers go unanswered. And her best friend Natalie loses her virginity to Benjamin O'Conner, Caitlin's brother! And--p.s.--now she's pregnant! When the world turns upside down, and Kim is about to fall apart, can she perhaps fall up? Straight into the arms of the One who loves her through the madness of life?
Friday, June 7
I think I'm having a serious meltdown here. It's like I'm unable to reason, I can't think straight, and I can't get my feelings under control. Even my prayers are pathetic, just hopeless cries for help, with no faith involved. I'm a mess.
How much stress can a girl take? Kim Peterson's mom has just died. Her visiting relatives bicker constantly. Her dad is lost in a fog of grief. Her boyfriend, Matthew, can't decide what to do after graduation. And Kim's best friend Nat just can't seem to get over being dumped by Ben O'Conner, Caitlin's younger brother.
More than anything, Kim wishes her mom were here to tell her everything's going to be okay. But that's not going to happen. When Kim reaches the breaking point, her dad sends her off to her grandmother's house in small-town Florida, where she's able to slow down, feed the gators, and realize that she's not indispensable...only God is! And instead of falling apart, she can fall up...into His arms.
Reader's guide included
Story Behind the Book
"My teenage years remain vivid in my mind. It was a turbulent time full of sharp contrasts--love and hate, pain and pleasure, trust and doubt. Then, just as I reached my peak of questioning, rebelling, and seeking, I found God. And I found Him in a really big way! My life turned completely around and has, thankfully, never turned back. Hopefully this story will touch and change hearts--speaking to teen girls right where they live, reminding readers that God is alive and well and ready to be intimately involved in their lives right now!"
