great catholic teenager novel
kitty(fayetteville, nc, May 31, 2010)
this is so much better then anything you'll get in the usual teen section. i've already lent it to a friend. but does mention drugs and has some no-so-virtuous characters from their school and from bear's past. overall, i love it!

This is a great adventure/romance/mystery book that is such a good read for teen girls (I would say 13 or up). You can't put it down. It tops other books of its kind because not only does it have a great story line, it also has great morals and Catholic touches. My two sisters and I all LOVED this book, and would also recommend the other three(?) books by Regina Domain as well! We are SO happy to have found some awesome Catholic fiction books that leave you excited to be Catholic.
Buy it for any Catholic teen girl and she will love it.

This is a nice story about teens that isn't so sugary coated that it seems unbelievable. Only one episode that was a little of a stretch for me, but the whole book is a great read. Adventure, mystery and piety all at realistic levels. I enjoyed it and so did my 14 yr old daughter. Pros: Noncondescending to teens
