ABOUT THE BOOK

Ana, Christine, Riley, and Zoe have grown closer than ever over the past few months, but summer is over and it's time to put their friendship to the test.
It's been a little over a year since Christine Lee's mom passed away in a tragic car accident. Now her dad is engaged to Candace--"The Bimbo"--and Christine couldn't be less thrilled. When her attitude starts to take a toll on her schoolwork, the administration forces her to attend counseling sessions. At least she gets to skip gym class!
But with her father's wedding inching closer, Christine is growing even more bitter. To make matters worse, the Miracle Girls are beginning to drift apart. Christine's anger and the pressures of high school threaten to break the girls up when they need each other the most. Will they find a way to join together to help Christine come to terms with her mother's death . . . and her father's remarriage?

My Review:

This is a wonderful second book in the Miracle Girls series. The first book set up the premise of the Miracle Girls and told Ana's main story. This book focuses mainly on Christine but also the other girls stories are there. I enjoyed learning more about all of the girls. The authors did a great job writing. The story is engaging and from the first page I did not want to put it down. I read it in one night. The series is targeted for teen girls but adults like them too including me (26). I highly recommend the series. I cannot wait for the next book. :)

I haven't read the first book in the series, but this one sounds intriguing. I lost my dad recently and while 29 is still young to lose a parent, it is helpful to be reminded of those who lose a parent at much younger and more tender ages. And to have to deal with a parent getting remarried, too, at that age. I may go look for this one tomorrow.
