I Will Read The Next Book in This Series
Now that he's settling in at Georgia Tech Perry Skky Jr. wants to forget his past issues and do right. When it comes to football it's a good thing that he has a coach who believes in God, reminding him that he has help during the tough times. But when he isn't in game mode, there are too many distractions and he just can't seem to keep his eyes on Jesus. His renewed relationship with his girlfriend, Savoy, is solid one day and on shaky ground the next. As a star athlete he has alot of pressure to perform on the field and the academics aren't that easy either. And serious issues arise with his peers. With all of the drama in his life it's very important that he stays Prayed Up.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
I have read Books 1-4 in this series and it seems each story talks quite a bit about how great Perry Skky Jr is. How everybody knows who he is because he was a football star in high school. How people see him as a guy who has it goin' on and can do no wrong as if he's perfect. If he wasn't setting them straight, letting them know that he has faults like everyone else, that his life isn't as great as everyone thinks, I probably wouldn't have read past Book 2 because, honestly, the whole "perfect" thing would have gotten on my nerves. But Stephanie Perry Moore did not create an unbelievably, perfect character. Perry is a kind-hearted, prayerful young man who wants to please God. He doesn't want people to always put him up on a pedestal and he even doubts his own abilities every now and then. And, yes, he does mess up. Like that committment to abstinence he made in Book 1, for instance. He seems to be having a bit of a problem sticking to that.
Like many Christians, Perry Skky Jr makes bad choices then goes to God telling the heavenly Father how he messed up and he seeks forgiveness, asking God to help him to do better - because he really does want to strengthen his relationship with the Lord - and then he messes up again. He's real, I like him and I enjoyed reading this book. I really want to know what's going to happen next in Perry's life, so I do plan to read Book

Im not a book reader or a fan of books but when i started reading about Perry i was hoked, I wanted more and what's great about it is that i can relate to most of what he's going through. For someone who lives in the ghetto it's a real insperation.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
