Meet Shauntice Johnston, Angel Nichols, LaKeeta Wilson, Bridgette Anderson and Hope Patterson--five teenage girls from the city of York, Pennsylvania. These girls know each other well. They are real. The issue with them is sex. Four of these girls are Christians, but all five handle the sex issue differently: Shauntice Johnston has a strong faith in God even in the midst of domestic abuse. Will she flee fornication when the pressure is heightened? Angel Nichols doesn't care about God and she is hurting because she feels neglected by her workaholic mother. Her father is nowhere in the picture. Will she continue engaging in regular sex in an attempt to fill that void within her? Would she become a Christian? LaKeeta Wilson, although a Christian, made the choice to get pregnant before marriage. Will her Christian testimony still stand firm? Hope Patterson lives a very protected life because of her strict mother. Things began to turn around in her life after her father dies. Would sex, which was not even in her vocabulary, become a part of her? Bridgette Anderson, because of her faith in God, refuses to compromise her beliefs and practice sex outside of marriage. Will she be able to hold out? This is real drama. Each page will pull you to the next! --The Black Christian Book Review
