From the Inside Flap

Raina is happy and relieved that her friends Kathleen and Holly found volunteering at the hospital rewarding. They loved their summers at the hospital so much they will be working for credit during their junior year.
Raina is also looking forward to spending as much time as possible with Hunter during their last year of high school together. Kathleen is still dating Carson, but they are at different schools and she's worried it won't last. And poor Holly's still waiting for her parents to let up on their rules so she can actually go out on a date.
Everything is going well until Raina's old boyfriend Tony shows up and threatens to ruin the thing that matters to Raina the most--her relationship with Hunter. But she isn't the only one with a secret. When Raina's mother reveals her family secret, Raina feels betrayed. Luckily she has Holly and Kathleen to lean on.

More About the Author

I was born in Philadelphia PA, grew up (mostly) in Hialeah FL, graduated from the University of South Florida, Tampa FL (go Bulls!) and currently live in Chattanooga TN---I'm an American citizen by birth, and Southern by the grace of God.

I have a brother, three years younger, married, and mathematically gifted. I am totally without math skills.

The books I write, the topics and subject matter, grew out of my firstborn son's diagnosis of diabetes at age 3.
Infinite reward that comes to me from my work.... when a grown reader lets me know that reading my books inspired her to seek a profession that helps others. I have wonderful letters saying, "Today I graduated from nursing/medical school."

Now that's a gift of joy!

I'm a huge fan of Lurlene McDaniel's books, but they all seem to blend together after a little while. KATHLEEN'S STORY is the start of a new series (Angels in Pink), and even though its your typical teen romance/drama book, I loved it.

Kathleen isn't too happy when her friends Raina and Holly decide to volunteer at the hospital over the summer, but she gets sucked into doing it too. The reason Kathleen is so reluctant to go with them is simple - her father was killed in a car accident and her mom has multiple sclerosis (MS), and Kathleen thinks she's seen far too many hospitals before. Over the course of the summer, the three friends go through a lot - boyfriends, new friends, perks of their new job, and a possibly life-changing decision.

When Kathleen starts to hang out with - and fall for - the "bad boy" of the volunteer program (Carson Keifer), she thinks the summer is going to be great. Until she meets his friend Steffie, who's prettier than Kathleen, and she's also a model. Kathleen isn't sure what she wants anymore, and her friends try to help her out along the way.

KATHLEEN'S STORY is good, and it isn't as sad as most of McDaniel's books. It's a book you can only read once or twice, though, so I'd get it from the library (or wait until it comes out in paperback, so you won't be paying too much for it). Recommended to fans of Angel of Mercy, A Walk to Remember, and the Mates, Dates, and...series.

A Kid's Review on November 24, 2005
Format: Library Binding
Don't get me wrong. I love all of Lurlene McDaniel's books, but they're all just so sad. She's probably only written like 4 books where the main character or the main character's girlfriend or boyfriend doesn't die. It can get depressing. But the new Angels in Pink books aren't like that.

So there are 3 best friends who are all 16, Kathleen, Holly, and Raina. They decide to volunteer at a local hospital for the summer and become "pink angels". Kathleen is really happy when she meets Carson, the really hot guy who's also volunteering, but not by choice. They hit it off, but she worries about where they're going. Carson has this goargous friend, Stephanie, who keeps showing up. Kathleen feels really intimidated. Carson doesn't ever like cheat on her though. I love how he doesn't ever pressure her to go too far, and how he doesn't care that Kathleen's never had that much experience with guys. I want someone like Carson!!!!!!!!!! Waaa!!!!!!!!!!!!!! lol

this book is sooooooooooo good! and the best part is, there's still 2 books in the series after this one.

This book isn't like other books. It's really a good book. If you haven't read it yet than I'll give a you a little summary. It's about a girl who's father died, and mother has a serious disease called MS. She also likes this boy but doesn't want to. It's kind of like a regular teens life. She has two best friends and they make sure that she's not constantly cooped up in her house. So they take her to a volunteer group. The rest is left up to you to read.

Even though this book is supposed to revolve around one of three best friends, Kathleen, I found that it was divided pretty evenly between the three girls. Kathleen's mother is afflicted with multiple sclerosis, which adds a human interest element to the plot that makes the reader sympathetic to Kathleen's struggles. This is also makes it quite understandable as to why Kathleen would be attracted to bad-boy Carson -- she lives such a controlled life that she needs some rebellion and unpredictability to make life more interesting.
The three girls volunteer for a program at the local hospital, called the Pink Angels. This makes for great background material as there is plenty of fodder for creating obstacles and conflicts. It was also somewhat familiar to me, thanks to what I've gone through with my youngest daughter's two hospital stays. My heart especially melted at one of the girl's interactions with a boy sick with cancer.
The characters were not overly unique and some were more likable than others. What really bothered me the most was how the book ended -- it just sort of cuts off. I understand that this book is part of a trilogy, but as it attempts to focus on one particular character, Kathleen, the plot lines pertaining to her should be resolved.

Boys beware "Kathleen's Story" the first book in the Angels in Pink series is probably not for you. This book is full of girl talk, romance, and all sorts of things that boys don't relate to. Kathleen and her two friends Raina and Holly decide to spend their summer vacation as Pink Angels in Parker-Sloan General Hospital.

At first Kathleen is reluctant to volunteer because she has to care for her wheelchair bound mother, but her friends convinced her to volunteer anyway. Kathleen is surprised she likes volunteering as much as she does. Not only does she get a break from her mother, but she gets to help others, and meet new people. Having to care for her mother didn't leave her with much time to socialize with boys, so when she meets Carson, another volunteer, she is unsure how to act.

The title of the series is what caught my attention, and the fact that is was written by Lurlene McDaniel, one of my favorite authors. "Kathleen's Story" kept me interested and always wondering what would happen next. Lurlene McDaniel's books are always centered on teenage girls which makes them seem more realistic and easy to relate to.

I loved the first book in the Angels in Pink series and can't wait to read the second "Raina's Story."
