This week, the

Christian Fiction Blog Alliance

is introducing

Love Will Keep Us Together
FaithWords (April 30, 2010)


Anne Dayton and 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

Riley McGee has the whole world open before her. She could get into any college, major in any subject, become whoever she wants to be...But the truth is, Riley has no earthly idea what to do. She's paralyzed by indecision, afraid of the changes she faces, and as graduation day inches closer, it feels more and more like a threat.

Meanwhile, her autistic brother, Michael, is struggling to fit in at Marina Vista and stay on top of his classes. Riley tries to keep an eye out for him, but when Ms. Moore suggests pulling Michael out of school, Riley has to fight for her brother--and against her favorite teacher. And things take another turn when her ex-boyfriend, Tom, arrives, hoping to give their relationship one more try. On top of that, an ambitious new pastor makes her question everything she thought she knew about faith.

If you would like to read the first chapter of Love Will Keep Us Together, go HERE.

This is the second Miracle Girls book I've read. (My review of A Little Help From My Friends is here.) This is a great series, and I enjoyed this final installment as the four friends experience their senior year in high school and make plans for college. Their ups and downs are realistically portrayed, and I especially love how Riley wrestles with what being a Christian really means and how that impacts her daily life, her future, and her interactions and relationships. I heartily recommend this book for teens. My girl absconded with it the moment I finished reading it!

I have an extra copy of this book to give to one of you! If you have a teen girl in your life, leave a comment on this post by 8:00 pm CDT Saturday (5/8/10) and I will draw a winner. US Residents only please. If you don't have a blog, you must include your email address to be entered.

Linda! This book seems really cool, a book that not only I would love to read, but it could be a great book for the library! If possible can I be entered into the drawing?
