1 Corinthians 6:18 - Flee from sexual immorality. All other sins a man commits are outside his body, but he who sins sexually sins against his own body.
This title begins shortly after Paige becomes engaged to designer Dylan Marceau and just before the girls' mom gets married. The sisters clash over issues of premarital sex, body image and the virtues of modesty. Beyond trying to accept her sister's life choices, Erin also needs to tip-toe around her best friends. Molly is a Christian, but pregnant, unwed, and not exactly the best confidant. Blake, also a Christian, clearly wants to progress his relationship with Erin beyond "just friends," but Erin's not so sure. While her views on premarital sex are crisply defined, Erin unwittingly waltzes a gray area of relationship boundaries with Blake.
In the midst of this, Erin becomes privy to serious and secret health issues with their producer, Fran. Because Fran has no family or close friends around, Erin takes it upon herself to care for her, which becomes an increasing burden.
Most of the book takes place in the Bahamas. The girls take the film crew there for a week-long fashion show. Erin struggles to find her place in this world of TV and fashion while seeking earnestly to live out what she believes to be true, in spite of the ridicule she receives. Her pursuit leads to new friends, stretching endeavors, and even a path toward eco-fashion, a line that may have a place, even for her.
WHAT I LIKE: This is a well-written easy read, perfect for lazy summer days.Read more ›
Amidst all this, they still have their TV show and all the drama that comes with it. As they prepare for a trip to the Bahamas they realize that paradise isn't all its cracked up to be storms of different calibers and types. Will they be able to do the right thing in a business that encourages the worst? Or will they crack and put aside their virtue for fame?
As I've mentioned before, Melody Carlson is by far one of my favorite, if not my favorite young adult author. She has a knack for expressing just how teens feel and act. This book is no different. She perfectly expresses how a Christian teen would feel in the spotlight trying to hold on to her values. It's amazing how accurate her books are.
Another thing this author is great at is making her characters realistic. She makes the characters' struggles understandable and believable. They make mistakes, they learn, the struggle. It makes her characters that much more likable. The character development isn't a massive part of the story, just because character development was pretty much already established in the first four books of the series.
Romance is still under construction in this book, Paige has a fiancé, their mom is married now, but Erin's relationship with Blake is still in question.Read more ›
Melody is a bestselling author as advertised on the front of the book and I can easily see why she is by reading her novels. I love the way this series takes you somewhat inside the fashion world but also has several other stories going on in the same book. You have so many diverse personalities and things happening that you never get bored. I find that I read these books within a day of picking them up. I love that because I'm eager to find out what happens but hate it cause they are ending so quickly!
I like the way that Melody continues to address what could be delicate subject matter with a practical point of view. For instance, Paige has her fiance stay for the week in their apartment and Erin is less than thrilled and lets her sister know it. While her sister views it as okay since they are engaged, Erin has a different set of standards by which she lives her life.
We saw Paige get engaged to Dylan Marceau, the clothing designer in the last book and this one continues with that story. Their engagement has shocked the fashion world and Ben, Paige's previous boyfriend, didn't take it so great either. One has to wonder, however, if Paige and Dylan are in it for the right reasons.
Meanwhile Erin is struggling on where she stands with Blake. Could you have broken up when you aren't really together in the first place? And why is he so standoffish?
I am a fan of the fact that Erin has so much going on for her. She isn't just stuck in boy mode. She has work, helping a friend through something awful, a pregnant best friend etc...
There is a good balance when you put Erin with Paige.Read more ›
