Katy’s Debate is the second book in the Katy Lambright Series by bestselling author Kim Vogel Sawyer, which follows sixteen-year-old Katy as she adjusts to life outside her Old Order Mennonite community in Kansas. Katy’s dad is courting Rosemary Graber, and Katy decides to use her new debate skills to end the romance before it can go any further. At the same time, Katy is developing a crush of her own.

It reminds me of the series that I did enjoy by authors like Lois Gladys Leppard and Beverly Lewis. Kim Vogel Sawyer is an author that many adults enjoy and I’m sure teen girls will not be far behind.

AND NOW…THE FIRST CHAPTER:
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!
