PREACHERS KIDS: Wicked & Wise was a breath of fresh air for me. As someone who reads an insane amount of street fiction books, it is good to get away from that genre and read something meant to be enjoyable and educational in the same sitting. It was a pleasant read with a serious message for African American kids. It gaves a much needed insight to anorexia, which is not a color blind disease. I highly recommend it to young kids who may be experiencing something similar or may know of someone experiencing something similar to the issues covered in the book. I love the way Hadley gets her point across without shoving religion down the reader's throat.

Mia is a gentle soul. She's shy, self conscious and a little awkward. Mia has a journal that helps her cope with her best friend's death. In her journal she writes her innermost thoughts and feelings. The most popular boy in school, Shaun Banks, takes a liking to Mia. First off, Shaun comes to Mia's house to ask her to tutor him in Spanish. From the beginning Shaun's behavior is a little suspect, but Mia is so excited and flattered that she really doesn't notice. But his personality goes straight to bizarre as he becomes a nuisance with his constant calls and unwanted visits. Can Mia ever get him to stop harassing her?
Morgan, on the other hand, is Mia's complete opposite. She's popular, self confident, and has a slight rebellious streak. Morgan's life is consumed with cheerleading and she's obsessed with being the best cheerleader with the best squad. But Morgan has a secret that she's willing to go to any length to protect. Will Morgan's secret be exposed? What will be the repercussions?
With a colorful cast of characters, including Essie, Mia's wise friend; Karry, the girl with the quirky personality that perplexes everyone; and the free spirited Aunt Jackie. "Preacher's Kids: Wicked and Wise" is a sheer delight to read and it showcases Keleigh Crigler Hadley's considerable talents as a new voice in contemporary Christian fiction.
This is definitely a book I'd like my fourteen year old daughter to read. Many of the incidents and tech-language (Facebook, text talk)had me nodding my head, yeah, my daughter will so connect with this. The message about the dangers of anorexia and Wiccanism comes through strongly. Will definitely be passing this onto my teenager.
