All throughout middle school and even the summer leading up to ninth grade, Courtney is a person of integrity and great faith. She has no issue standing up for her religious beliefs and saying no to the peer pressure to indulge in drugs and alcohol. However, like many new high schoolers, Courtney is drawn away from her convictions and swept into the world of popularity and the pressures of fitting in. Consumed with the desire to be liked by her new boyfriend Chris and his party going friends, Courtney abandons everything that she once stood for. Chris, on the other hand, begins the story as a diehard party goer and is rarely sober. However, upon reflection on his own life Chris begins to see God in his life again - not through his own actions, but the influence another person has on his life.
This story very accurately details the pressures teenagers face and the feeling that fitting in and loving God may not seem to go together. I think many high schoolers, especially those feeling consumed by the constant social pressure, will be able to relate to the ups and downs the characters in The Right Person face. Their struggles with the sudden prevalence of drugs and alcohol in Montgomery Lake is very real to new high schoolers suddenly faced with these difficult choices. I would recommend this book to all teenagers, but especially those struggling with drug or alcohol abuse or those who feel they might be at risk of future abuse.
The story focuses mainly on Chris: an athletic, partier who has spent the past two years reliant on alcohol and drugs. As freshman year begins, Chris finds himself becoming tiresome of his partying ways and looking for something more. He is influenced by his new girlfriend Courtney; a girl who is firm on her morals and opposition to drugs and alcohol. Courtney, however, intrigued by this new surrounding becomes absorbed into the party scene of Chris’ friends and sacrifices her values to fit in.
This book depicts the struggles many kids encounter during their high school years through the eyes of compelling characters. I recommend this book to both students currently in high school and middle schoolers preparing for these tricky years. It is a reminded of God’s presence in our lives and the importance of seeking strength through him in times of uncertainty.
The characters are well developed, and completely believable. I was transformed back to my high school days, I felt a real connection with Brain as I found myself to be more like him. I was able to relate to all of the characters as I found myself and my group of friends in each of the characters. I found myself wanting to cry as I read some of the obstacles that these teens have to go through, to learn the difference between right and wrong.
The plot is well well spaced and not quickly written as I find in some books that I have read. I never found myself stuck thinking why am I reading this, it was smooth sailing from the beginning to the end. I can not wait to see what happens to the characters in the sequel as I have found myself completely attached. Great debut novel by a great author.
The characters are easy to relate, you find yourself liking some and hating some,then there is one that reminds you of yourself. For me it was Julianna. Everything she went through brought back so much memories of my life. I know that if you read this book it will remind you of the lessons you've learned and it will make you learn most of them all over again.
I recommend this book to anyone, who wants to learn and grow, even though it is High School and the story is more for High School kids, there is still something that you can take, no matter how old.
Most importantly I know that this book and the series will help young teenagers to be conscious of their choices and who they spend their time with. I know that this book will help so many to be able to face High School and also life with wisdom.
Stacy's story will stay with you for a while after you read it, the lessons and the experiences you will get from the book will stick with you.
