I loved struggling along with Riley as she tries to be true to herself. I saw myself in her- it took me back to those days of yore... and helped me to empathize with my four kiddos who are currently enrolled in academia. I appreciated the honest portrayal of the Church, which could be Everychurch and how we often drop the ball when we should be reaching out to the hurting instead of judging. Story threads include teen pregnancy, friendship, autism and life choices.
