In the tradition of The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants, four friends navigate college and the drama churned up by their Florida beach band to cement friendship and more.
Avra wants love, but drummer Cisco—self-medicating from his parents’ divorce with sex and intoxicants—is a poor choice. Cisco hungers for fresh-baked cookies and the scent of family he finds at Avra’s.
Kallie shares her classically trained singing voice only with lead vocalist Jesse and fights to keep her heart safe. Jesse feeds on fame and hides more than insecurity beneath his guitar.
The friends surf ego, betrayal, and ambition and head for wipe-out. But somehow, when they’re not looking, Avra’s God changes them all.
I am always looking for clean reads. Many of the books I read are not overtly Christian though. This one is and I really enjoyed it. The character’s drew me in. They faced real problems faced my young adults today. They had to learn to trust each other and more importantly to trust their God. While they had been let down by the world, they had to each learn to rely on God and develop a personal relationship with him. It took one of them to plant the seed in the hearts of the others. They each overcame hurt and learned to love and forgive others. The problems they faced were very real. Their friendships were a strength to them. I loved how these characters related to each other and how they each found God.
