The humor in this book will bring a smile to your face. Jenny B Jones has a very upbeat and candid writing style that I truly enjoyed. As I listened to the audio version, I want to add that Reba Buhr did a fantastic job reading Katie’s story. I want to finish the series!
This book correlates with guacamole and lime tortilla chips for me. Guacamole with some spice. The combination of flavors is just right.

Genre: Young Adult, Christian, Fiction
I did not know what I would get when I picked up this novel. It was a kindle freebie that looked interesting.
What I got was a well-written piece of youth literature with a Christian slant. In Between is a coming of age story of a teenage girl who is trying to adjust to a new foster family. The novel is notably for young adults, however, is enjoyable for adults as well.
If you are not big into a Christian slant to your literature you can still very much enjoy this novel. The main character is not all that sure about the Christianity either. However, it is nice to read a novel with a clean plot, clean language, and one that is focused on the love of a family instead of romance.
I thoroughly enjoyed this novel. I could not put it down. The writing was refreshing. While it will probably not become a classic, it was a great read that had with depth. The characters were multi-layered, allowing the reader to connect to all of them from various points. Even the supporting characters were more than just cardboard cutouts. The humor and exuberance of the main character really adds to the story as well.
As reviewed on The Book Recluse Review
In Between is basically a Christian sitcom book. It's also a young adult novel. Going into it, I knew it was a young adult book and so my expectations were reasonably low. I think it's safe to say that this book surpassed these expectations. I was in for a funny ride full of secrets and self-realization.
The story follows Katie Parker as she moves in with her foster parents James and Millie Scott in the small town of In Between, Texas. Katie initially tries to leave but then, just as she realizes what her new life could mean, she breaks the trust of her foster parents and then vows to become the perfect foster child. Later – when she realizes this isn't possible – she starts to unravel the mystery of the Scotts first daughter. Along the way, she spends a lot of time with the insane mother of Millie Scott: Maxine Simmons.
Maxine's escapades lead to a number of humorous situations, a secret romance and Katie meeting a boy. To the books credit, no romance comes in at this point.
The book ends on an upbeat note,without being to preachy.
I rank this book as five stars and would recommend it to any girls looking for a good and meaningful read.
The only thing I was not particularly happy with was the ending. Seemed like it ended very suddenly, and not a conclusive ending. I guess this was because the author decided to make a series out of the book.
This is the story of Katie Parker and her new foster family. While most YA novels turn sixteen year old protagonists into angsty, lovesick morons, Katie is intelligent and strong. She grows as a character. She helps those around her without sappy. She has a hefty amount of sarcastic wit. I enjoyed reading her story and found myself crying more than a few times, completely drawn into her world. Her story rang with truth, even in a fictional tale.
*This story does have Christian characters, but it was handled in a non offensive manner. I don't usually read "Christian YA Lit," but I really enjoyed this book. I'll be reading the next book in the series.
I'm not a teen, but I enjoy reading books with strong female characters. Katie is a great character. I'd recommend this book to anyone, but especially to YA girls.
