FaithWords (October 15, 2009)


Anne Dayton & May Vanderbilt


ANNE DAYTON graduated from Princeton University and is earning her master's degree in English literature at New York University. She works for a New York publishing company and lives in Brooklyn.

MAY VANDERBILT graduated from Baylor University and went on to earn a master's degree in fiction from Johns Hopkins University. She lives in San Francisco, where she writes about food, fashion, and nightlife in the Bay Area.

Together, the two women are the authors of Miracle Girls series

Zoe is used to being overlooked. As the youngest and shyest Miracle Girl, she was happy to fade into the background last year. But when she sheds her baby fat and shoots up four inches the summer before her junior year, everything changes. Now she's turning heads at school, and this new attention is beginning to strain her relationship with her sweet, serious boyfriend, Marcus.

Pressure builds when Zoe's assigned partner for history class is Dean Marchese--a handsome New York transplant who isn't afraid to show her how he feels.
Just when she needs her three best friends the most, the Miracle Girls are suffering from boy troubles of their own.

Even Zoe's rock-solid home life begins to shake underneath her when her parents' relationship frays in the face of serious financial burdens. As this uncertain year of growing pains comes to a frenetic head, the quietest Miracle Girl must find her voice at long last and take control of her own destiny . . . with more than a little help from her friends.

This is the first Miracle Girls book I have read, and I enjoyed it. I appreciate books that show realistic Christian kids navigating through believable circumstances, sometimes stumbling along the way, but learning how to walk with God in their lives. I'll be passing this one on to my girl.

Oh! Where were these when my step-daughter was a teen? I couldn't just buy a teen romance and hand it to her. I had to read every one first. Too often the books went further than her mother and I thought they should.

Sounds like a really good book. Wonder if I could talk my younger daughter into reading it?
