Fifteen-year-old Jessie Hatcher can no longer use bubbly charm to cover up her problems, and when her biological father appears from nowhere and takes her from her suburban home in Birmingham, Alabama, to his home in Maine, Jessie finds she needs the help of a mysterious book to get her life back together.
Nancy Rue has written over 100 books for girls, is the editor of the Faithgirlz Bible, and is a popular speaker and radio guest with her expertise in tween and teen issues. She and husband Jim have raised a daughter of their own and now live in Tennessee.

Today’s post is a FIRST Wild Card Tour book review. If you wish to join the FIRST blog alliance, just click the button. We are a group of reviewers who tour Christian books. As an Assistant Director to FIRST, I can tell you that I have personally enjoyed our tours for years. I am always excited to see what authors will be offered up next. A Wild Card post includes a brief bio of the author and a full chapter from each book toured. The reason it is called a FIRST Wild Card Tour is that you never know if the book will be fiction, non~fiction, for young, or for old…or for somewhere in between!
I hope you enjoyed your free peek into the book!
